You may remember Plamegate a few years back. If you were alive, and of age, there was really no way not to hear about it. Boiled down to the essentials, Plamegate involved Douchebag journalist Robert Novak (R.I.P.) leaking the identity of Valerie Wilson, a covert CIA operative, in his newspaper column, effectively ending her career. He learned of Wilson's identity from Scooter Libby (probably on the orders of Dick Cheney), who released the name because former Amassador Joseph Wilson (Valerie's husband) wrote a series of op-eds in the New York Times disputing George Bush's stated reasons for going to war in Iraq. The leak was in retaliation.

Fine. It could make for a compelling drama with lots of yelling, walking, court-room scenes, and Congressional testimony. Aaron Sorkin would be an ideal screenwriter.

What it shouldn't make for, however, is a Bourne-style action-thriller, but at least that's what the trailer portends. Sean Penn and Naomi Watts are at their over-acting best -- and this two-minute trailer contains more fists of ham than a hog farm. It's exactly the kind of goddamn film for which people hate Sean Penn, and indeed, I think we may be seeing the Pacino-ization of Penn.
