The trailer for Crossing Over, starring Harrison Ford, Ashley Judd, and our collective cognitive dissonance about immigration:

You know what I want to ask myself instead of asking myself why so many risk so much to come to this country? I want to ask why the people already in this country are so stupid that instead of watching DOCUMENTARIES, which they almost never watch, they fall all over these fictionalized, simpled-down, melodramatic fairy tales that ostensibly explore gray areas while remaining as black and white as an Aesop’s Fable. Actually, no, Aesop was subtle and clever. I don’t want a Hollywood movie to ask me to ask myself something, I want Errol Morris to ask real people things until I’m forced to ask myself on my own. ERROL MORRIS FOR PRESIDENT (Of Movies.)
