Frost/Nixon 5.5/10 Milk 8/10 Che part 1 5.8/10...

Is it just me or has anyone else noticed that there seems to be a rash of Politico biopics crossing the Atlantic at the moment... full steam ahead are Milk, Che, and Frost/Nixon. All of them decent (to very good) movies, where political conservatism and revolutionary thought and action have been neatly commodified into large screen entertainment. Which isn't a bad thing if you ask me. I have just returned from a stint in the Cuban jungle and feel all the better for it.

Things always seem to make more sense in hindsight especially when real life events are given plot development and structure... There is of course W (Dubya) from the end of last year and The Baader Meinhoff Complex from Germany, and doubtless a few others that don't spring to mind at the moment. Yes, we are living in the age of the Politiflick... Where will we be going next I wonder?.
