Nostalgia Ain't What It Used To Be

Remember when An American Carol skyrocketed to #161 on the 2008 box office charts with its conservative tale of Life in America? Remember how ideology made the script swoop and soar like an untrammeled great bird in the hands of Kelsey Grammer and Zach Levy? It looks as if we have another hit of that magnitude. Pretty much everyone shrugged.
Dagny and Hank ride blissfully in Taggart’s new high-speed train, and then Hank suggests they take a trip to Wisconsin, where the state’s policies caused the suppression of an engine that runs on the ozone in the air, or something (the film’s detailed explanation won’t clear this up). They decide to drive there. That’s when you’ll enjoy the beautiful landscape photography of the deserts of Wisconsin.
