The Horror

THE HORROR….I didn’t even know the MPAA approved print ads for movies in the first place. Shows how much I know. But they do, and it turns out that ads for documentaries that depict U.S. soldiers leading away a hooded prisoner are verboten. Too much like a horror film, apparently. Which, in fairness, it is, isn’t it?
