I don’t want to see The American.
I blame the title for that. The. American.
Sure, it’s concise, but it doesn’t tell me what the movie’s about, does it? And it’s not particularly descriptive, is it? I know tons of Americans! Some of them I would see movies about; some of them, not so much.
I mean, I think George Clooney is the title American in The American, but maybe he’s actually not. Maybe he’s, like, playing a New Zealander or a Canadian. Or is it New Zealandian? I think I’d go see The New Zealandian.
But The American?
What is it, a film about an assassin who isn’t assassinating anyone?
Count me out.
