It Was The Best Of Timing, It Was The Worst Of Timing

By way of a more upbeat contrast with my post from last week about a film which is being released at an unfortunate time given its subject matter, I thought I ought to show we're not all negative here at John Soanes.

This poster, then, is for a film called The International, which is a thriller about a corrupt banking institution, based on the real-life BCCI banking scandal of the early 1990s. Whilst it's been over a decade since the scandal in question, the release of this film strikes me as particularly timely - I reckon audiences will currently be more than willing to believe the worst of banking institutions.

Good timing, I'd say.

Sadly it's not supposed to be up to much.

That does seem to be the general opinion, doesn't it? Ah well.
