Re: Movies Seen in 2011

The Trojan Horse, starring actors from the TV series Slings & Arrows plus Greta Scacchi, Saul Rubinek, Clark Johnson and Tom Skerrit. The movie begins with a losing referendum on the union of Canada and the US. An ex-Prime Minister of Canada, ultimately if unintentionally responsible for the union, decides to run for US President. The plot downplays political realism for drama, but as a foreign production is much, much smarter than all but a handful of US films. The writing is sophisticated enough to allow the reading of the end in more than one way. The fantasy in the movie is probably as close to an open expression of resentment and fear of the US empire as could be expressed in mass commercial media.
