Joseph Gordon-Levitt, the director of this short video, is a good friend of my good friend, Scott Heim, who wrote the novel Mysterious Skin. He’s an actor (best known for playing the slacker kid on 3rd Rock but has far exceeded this role in films like Brick and the adaptation of Mysterious Skin).
I’m impressed with the verve and youthful energy of Joseph’s video. When he was last able to vote, he had the choice of a dull Gore or a dummy named Bush–all of which didn’t matter as our last President was chosen by the Supreme Court rather than everyday U.S. citizens. Give Joseph’s video a look-see.
