Hollywood Horror Film

Warner Bros. is making a propaganda movie about Woodrow Wilson, his world war, and his central bank, starring Leonardo DiCaprio. Will Woody’s police state and war socialism be praised, too? In any case, expect the glorification of the sanctimonious totalitarian to be shown in government indoctrination centers. (Thanks to Jay Stephenson)

UPDATE from Dan Guenzel:

Hollywood gets more laughable by the minute and this project is more evidence of it.

But I wonder, really, how much effect such propaganda will have when one considers that the supremely untalented (and uninteresting) ham De Caprio will be playing the title role. A Paul Scofield he ain’t.
