Would you have any interest in Hollywood making a movie about the Capitol insurrection?

Asked by rockfan (13879points) January 18th, 2021 from iPhone

There is so much real footage available that a director could easily reenact the event using famous actors, and make it into a disturbing political satire about delusion and cognitive dissonance.

I could envision Lynne Ramsay making it, the director of “You Were Never Really Here” and “We Need To Talk About Kevin”.

Ask me after the 20th. There might be a miniseries opportunity.

No. Maybe a documentary far in the future. I don’t even want to see movies about 9/11 and luckily there don’t seem to be many.

Only if it starred Jean-Claude Van Damme as the goat master.

I guess a movie solely about the Capitol insurrection wouldn’t be all that interesting, but if a film about Trump’s presidency ever gets made, a scene of the insurrection would have to be a must.

But if you guys oppose a movie about Trump being made, than I think that’s kind of weird. A movie about Trump has so much potential to be just as good as All The President’s Men

Oppose isn’t the right word. Meant to say not interested in

@rockfan: “But if you guys oppose a movie about Trump being made, than I think that’s kind of weird.”

Do you trust Hollywood to make a movie about Trump that isn’t a complete whitewashing of US history? It would most definitely be a pile of melodramatic horseshit that had neocons and liberals as heroes, rather than complicit in the United States’ crimes.

Plus, it would boring as hell.

Not now!

Maybe in the future a movie, mini series, or documentary leading to the event on Jan 6 and what happened on that day. We have to document and teach it. It must become part of our K-12 curriculum in my opinion. We need our children to be better than the current adult population at handling propaganda.

Obviously depends on the writer and director. You’re acting as though there aren’t intelligent filmmakers out there

Personally, I need a long break from the last four years. I’ve had enough of Trump to last for the rest of my life. We’ve seen it 24/7 – who needs more?

I’d have no interest.
