The Counsellor trailer: don’t do drugs

Don’t do drugs, people. Don’t sell drugs, don’t move drugs, don’t hang out with drug dealers, don’t work with drug dealers. Sheesh.

Or else we should just legalize it all, and this all goes away. “This” being movies about people who get in over their heads with drug dealers, too. Does the world need Ridley Scott and Michael Fassbender’s We’re the Millers? Oh, I’m sure this will be a stylish thriller from a master of dramatic suspense. But still.

Had to do a double-take here; the double L in the title threw me. It’s advertised as “The Counselor” here in the States.

I see two problems with legalising drugs, as far as Hollywood is concerned:

(1) they make such a convenient motivator and MacGuffin for lazy screenwriters;

(2) if cocaine is cheap, how do you show off how rich you are without leaving the room?
