Movie Suggestions

My friend reminded me of the movie Being There http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0078841/, “To some extent O’Bama’s rise to power is reminiscent of one Chauncy Gardner as played by Peter Sellers in “Being There.” He says nothing of substance yet people read into it giving far more depth and meaning to what was said than was ever contemplated or intended by the speaker.”  Which got me thinking about movies and about A Distinguished Gentleman, an Eddie Murphy film from 1992 http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0104114/ . For those of you unaware, the movie is about a con man who pretends to be someone he is not and gets elected to Congress but is basically an empty suit.  Sound familiar?  If life does imitate art, check out this “Change for the future,” speech he gives in the movie http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C5nu5GRDzog . Any other movie suggestions?
