We at war

Almost one of the most striking things about today's visit to the movie theatre: the trailer to the new film adaptation of the excellent book Jarhead. And while I'm hoping the movie is good, I already know the trailer is amazingly well put together. The use of Kanye's "Jesus Walks" is perfect, especially near the end as the music hits a more frenzied, baroque pitch over a howling Gyllenhaal emptying a machine gun. In the theatre, that gave me chills.
