An opinion piece in the USA Today says that if Hollywood were to produce a movie to describe the “incoherent” US policy towards Cuba, it would be a remake of the 1993 movie “Dazed and Confused.” The editorial goes on to repeat the same talking points regarding the embargo, such as that it was instituted with the sole purpose of toppling the castro regime while never mentioning the real reason; the largest expropriation of private US property in history. As is often the case, this writer has a very loose grip on facts and history, but what else would you expect from Hollywood.
But the editorial made me think of what movie would best describe Hollywood’s complete lack of understanding and love affair with a murderous, despotic regime. The first movie that came to mind is another cult classic: Dumb and Dumber.
Leave your choice for the best movie to describe Hollywood’s clueless apathy in the Habla section.
