A Movie About Product Placement That Gets Its Funding From Product Placement

* A layer about the non-reality caused by living in a marketing society.

* But perhaps most strikingly, a layer about how everyone and everything is suddenly up for sale - even a documentary maker who is chiding the deceptive practice that is funding his work.

Here is a link to DC showtimes this weekend. If you see it, I'd be interested to know what you think.
