mmmm...

Putting on Cradle Will Rock, which is one of the greatest movies ever (props to pgnblade and iambliss for introducing us to it).

For the uninitiated,
The cast:
Hank Azaria, Ruben Blades, John Cusak, Joan Cusak, Cary Elwes, Angus MacFadyen, Bill Murray, Vanessa Redgrave, Suasan Sarandon, John Turturro, Emily Watson.

The general plot: During the depression the New Deal established the Fedral Theater Company. One troupe of this Company wants to perform a controversial anti-corp/pro-labor play- and censorship ensues. Meanwhile, Nelson Rockefeller (played in delightful slime by John Cusak) hires Diego Rivera to paint a mural for Rockefeller Center- Diego, being a communist, paints a communistic mural- censorship ensues. Noting a trend?
