The Joneses: marketing and materialism gone mad
Have you seen this movie? Somehow I missed it at the movies but we rented it last night and it was:
thought provoking, scary, frightening, funny, sobering and just plain creepy!
What did you think? The scary part is, this movie could actually be happening, or is in effect happening, with devastating consequences. The best acting I've seen from David Duchovny and Demi Moore, normally I'm not a big fan of either of them, but they made it really enjoyable.
You may want to watch the full movie before you read this next bit, the trailer doesn't tell it all.
I found myself watching the end credits and thinking... you know what? Its sad, but sometimes we get so distracted from our relationship with God that we end up trying to 'sell' him to people when all we need to do is concentrate on our relationship with him and enjoying life.
Warning: this movie merits its M or R Rating.
