I can’t pin down Spike’s politics, and I’m loving it.
Note: The script has two, and only two, random mentions of real people (i.e. not characters in the film): Donald Trump and R. Kelly. It’s always a bit weird hearing a remark about a current, relevant figure in a film from the past—happens all the time with Trump—but this one has both him and R. Kelly. Oh, there’s also mention of Michael Cohen, Elon Musk, and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.
Question: Is Spike religious? Does he have a religious background?
I quite liked the screenplay of 25th Hour, so I looked up the writer... wow, this guy has had a weird filmography. Looking at Letterboxd, you get the impression that his career post-25th-Hour has been a mess with films like Troy, Stay, X-Men Origins: Wolverine, and the American remake of Brothers. But then you google him, and it turns out he’s the main showrunner of Game of Thrones. Hmmmmmmmm
Produced by Tobey Maguire I’m so confused
