Do you remember when John Cusack used to do a really good, offbeat movie every few years? Sure, he’d always play characters cut from the same cloth, but you couldn’t help but admire the career he was carving out for himself. Grosse Point Blank is a classic, and the soundtrack is even better. Being John Malkovich was a fun flick. And High Fidelity rocked (no pun intended).
However, somewhere along the line John started making movies like 1408. And then he found a similarly haunted room inside his own head (or was it Malkovich’s?) went inside, destroyed the key, and became a bitter, angry, unhinged liberal. But I guess that’s what happens when you affiliate yourself with Moveon.org and start making movies like War Inc.—you start believing in conspiracy theories, Bush/Hitler memes, and the notion that any intelligent citizen would give credence to the Say Anything actor who will literally say anything that liberal blogs belch up each morning.
I wonder how many of John’s 200,000 twitter followers found his page because they were randomly thinking of Grosse Point Blank, and then were saddened to find misspelled partisan psychobabble splattered in between empty calorie tweets only Entertainment Weekly junkies would love.
Behold, John’s Twitter bio: “Apocalyptic sh*t disturber and elephant trainer.”
John, if that’s some sort of jab at the GOP it was lost on most people, because the only big globs of post apocalyptic diarrhea people associate you with is your sell out flick 2012. You may have played a bunch of sad sack lovable losers (perhaps that’s why you really love the Cubbies?) who came out on top, but these days you’re just…sad. I wish you the best, but at the same time I’m looking forward to incoherent tweets in the wake of campaign season Palin waves.
