The Insider (Movie)

Last night we watched “The Insider”.  It’s a 1999 movie (true story) with Al Pacino and Russell Crowe about Big Tobacco and the guy who exposed them.

It got 7 Oscar nominations, so we thought, hey, let’s give it a try.  It was good, but not 7 Oscar nominations good.  And it was slow – sooo slow.  It’s 2 1/2 hours, give or take.  I think it got so many Oscar nods because of the content.   The underdog taking on the 7 Dwarfs (as the 7 largest Tobacco Company CEO’s are so affectionately referred to). 

I generally like this sort of stuff, but I think I was either too tired to fully appreciate it, or it really was just painstakingly slow.  I think tonight we’ll just stick to The Office :).
