This week is when Americans celebrate the near genocide of indigenous people by eating too much, drinking shite beer and watching dull games of American Football before going out on Friday to rip each others lungs out as they try to get a cheap George Foreman grill on Black Friday.
Thanksgiving is an odd holiday looking at it from this side of the Atlantic. It’s basically a secular harvest festival adopted to be something else and celebrate the aforementioned near genocide of an entire set of people. But here we are and for good or bad, its influence lurks like the smell of rotting meat in the background.
So this is a good excuse to roll out Eli Roth’s excellent fake trailer for the Grindhouse film, and enjoy what is probably the best thing Roth has done.
