Uh, in other news, is not this WTO movie a complete and utter ripoff of Medium Cool? Can the ladies please stop losing their children in historic riots already? But if the homage must be so blissfully obvious, I expect to see some sun-dappled Appalachian baptisms, please.

Too bad the filmmakers didn't have the foresight to shoot this on 11/30/99, eh?

Wyoming, Alberta

Minneapolis, Manitoba

What's got yer panties in a bunch, Annie? Medium Cool was shot while the Chicago riots were actually happening, as you well know. You can't ripoff something that's so incredibly tight. Unless you have a production, a script & actors all ready to go when history happens in front of you.
