Thank You for Smoking (2005)

What a pleasure to watch an intelligent comedy!

There were so many things about this movie that I enjoyed. The transformation is subtle. The editing in particular was tremendous as it didn't overdo it with the special effects, but used them very stylistically. The writing takes the cake however. The sharp dialogue has rarely predictable and hilarious.

The issue of spin is a difficult one to address without using it on itself and that is what Thank You for Smoking accomplishes. Avoiding truth is an infestation of our society and has truly ruined how people view truth as an entity. People now expect truth to be manipulated.

I look forward to Jason Reitman's future films.
