Because when you're really really close to the source material, it becomes less subjective!
So, Palin plans on releasing an "epic" biopic about herself in June, you know, to probably to help her out in her bid for running for President or whatever, and it's over 2 hours long.
Political candidates are no strangers to having short (keyword: short) films made to help them out, but Palin expects you to pop some popcorn and have a movie night with hers. But don't fill up on popcorn, because you'll need room for whatever she's about to feed you — but it'll be EPIC!
Just go ahead and read this about it:
It's the biopic Undefeated authorized by Palin, made by conservative filmmaker Stephen K. Bannon (Generation Zero celebrating the Tea Party movement, and In The Face Of Evil lionizing President Reagan), and set to premiere in late June in Iowa and then other early presidential primary states like New Hampshire and South Carolina and Nevada.
Scott Conroy, a national political reporter for RealClearPolitics, has seen the film which he's calling "Palin's Secret Weapon" because it's to "help catapult Palin from the presidential afterthought she has become in the eyes of many pundits directly to the front lines of the 2012 GOP conversation". Interestingly, it features a clip sequence showing celebs like Rosie O'Donnell, Matt Damon, Bill Maher, David Letterman, and Howard Stern slamming Palin. It also features images of lions killing a zebra and a dead medieval soldier with an arrow sticking in his back to dramatize the Palin-haters. Two versions of the film reportedly will be released: an unrated edition will contain some obscene anti-Palin language and imagery, while the other is targeted to a general audience and will seek a PG-13 MPAA rating.
Sounds like a roller coaster ride of a time, worth two big thumbs-up!
Come on. We can understand a short and all of that, and we can understand movies that aren't fully supported by her because they might sail a little close to the raw truth, but a 2 hour self-congratulatory campaign movie? Really?
The crazy part will be that some people are going to eat it up!
Though, it will be inneresting to see how Palin's stacks up against in viewers/ratings against Julianne Moore's!
Will U be watching it? Julianne's? Either??
