Watching the clip for another of the fall season’s Oscar contenders, Revolutionary Road, I didn’t even have to check iMDB to know that Sam Mendes was in the directing chair. No one tackles suburban life better than he. In fact, though it’s based on a Richard Yates’ novel, Revolutionary Road has all the markings of a 1950’s version of American Beauty. But why can’t anyone ever be happy with their mundane suburban lives? Then again, I live in absolute terror that I will soon be struck dead by suburbanite-ism. It’s the thing that terrifies me most about having a child.

Oh God. I’m going to be that guy, aren’t I? *Cold sweat.* I need a scotch. Shitshitshitshitshit.

Here’s the trailer:
