Today felt like a very long day, made all the longer by what I can only call an exasperating movie. At 7:30 tonight I was at Warner's public screening for The Book of Eli, which stars Denzel Washington as a religious wanderer with a crazy kung fu grip. The story falls under the usual "post-apocalyptic America" plot where a long-forgotten war has left the country, and most likely the world, devastated and practically unlivable, which effectively ends all civilization as we know it.
