New Netflix movie about the Chicago 7 trial, starring Sacha Baron Cohen as Abbie Hoffman

i’m really looking forward to this, hopefully it will improve on whatever shortcomings people had issue with in “steal this movie!” (which had a great cast imo).


“Were you hoping to draw the police into a confrontation?”

I think we all know that the police are always the ones hoping for a confrontation, and no matter how peacefully you protest, the police will get what they want, by hook or by crook.


Hearing Sacha Baron Cohen speak as Hoffman, even if briefly, immediately brought me back to this clip from the Soundbites From The Counterculture compilation.

Just Say No!

Who would have thought “Borat” himself Sacha Baron Cohen would even be considered for a role like this. I think it has to do with his slight resemblance to Abbie Hoffman. Brave move on the part of the director.
