Another few didactic paragraphs and you'll be entering Ted Kaczynski land, my friend. Angry manifesto, much?
"This script chronicles vapid, shallow and empty lives of Tinsel Town's super rich---their utter lack of knowledge and interest in the new intellectual currents that are sweeping our world, intellectual currents such as structuralism, semiotics, deconstruction, feminist theory and gender politics. The film recreates the infamous encounter between television show-host Matt Lauer and Tom Cruise.
We have a reporter for a small Northeast Alabama newspaper who travels to Washington D.C. for a presidential press conference. He is shocked by the callousness and low intellectual level manifested by our American president. He then travels to Hollywood where he hopes to meet rational, intelligent people who are interested in what is happening in the intellectual world. Instead he is shocked and disappointed by the low intellectual level manifested by the denizens of this hedonistic, shallow and superficial culture. He interviews the rich and the famous and comes away with the sensation that Hollywood is simply another red-necked hillbilly segment of American bourgeois culture at large.
At a time when America is a nation in crisis, led by incompetent, bumbling callous leadership, Hollywood is obsessed with its money, its deals and its lavish, opulent and sybaritic lifestyles. It operates on roughly the intellectual and spiritual level of a Russian mafia hit-man. This is for those producers who enjoy films that discuss the new intellectual currents that are sweeping across our universities and the face of American culture."
