I've been posting about John Cusack's new film (War Inc.) including a very cool live chat over the last few weeks because I loved it and think it deserves a much wider audience. It's the story of a disillusioned hit-man that works for a Blackwater-type corporation on steroids that attacks a country, sets up a profit-based green zone and gives away complimentary gift bags to every journalist they meet.

C&L--along with New Crime Productions--is offering a free ticket giveaway for an advance screenings in NY and LA on Monday---May 19, at 7:30 PM. It's important that we have those theaters filled to the max so the film will get distributed to a much wider audience.

<correction> The Opening of the film is May 23rd

NY Screening: *** Air America's Rachel Maddow will be doing a Q&A with writers Mark Leyner and Jeremy Pikser. after the film so stick around.
