NY Times: Harold and Kumar

Saturday, April 19, 2008

From the NY Times Film article on Harold and Kumar Escape From Guantánamo Bay:

AMERICAN political cinema of the George W. Bush era has come to assume a few familiar forms: the documentary indictment (“Fahrenheit 9/11,” “No End in Sight”), the sober memorial (“World Trade Center,” “United 93”), the angry or earnest Iraq drama (“Redacted,” “Stop-Loss”). In this cheerless landscape “Harold and Kumar Escape From Guantánamo Bay,” the sequel to the 2004 cult favorite “Harold and Kumar Go to White Castle,” creates its own category: the stoner protest film.
