Wow. Just … Wow.

Just caught a glimpse of a TV commercial for this new movie and had to grab the full-length HD theatrical trailer:

The Devil’s Double — a movie based on the true story of Saddam Hussein’s evil son Uday — hits theaters Friday night, that has been called “Scarface of Arabia.”

    I saw a preview for this movie when I went to see The Undefeated.  I was wondering what kind of movie trailers they’d be able to find for it, and I was quite surprised.  Most true-life stories they end up embellishing somewhat, but it would not surprise me in the least if this one ends up toning down the truth somewhat.

    He looks like Kos.

    Well Kos is sort of a mini Uday.

    No one can over act like Al Pacino.  He is the master of over acting.

    If there isn’t a tie-in to Dubya or the Republicans, Andrew Sullivan will denounce this movie.

    According to the director, they have to tone the stuff that actually happened, way down.

    If there isn’t a tie-in to Dybya or the Republicans, a love scene between Uday and his body double, Andrew Sullivan will denounce this movie.

    Uday was a psychotic fuck and if there is any justice in the world he is burning in hell right now.
