re: #170 Cato the Elder

So, I’m watching this old movie for the first time: “Midnight Express”.

Stoopud-ass American kid gets caught with a shit-ton of hash at the airport in Turkey. Goes to Turkish slammer. Gets the Lawrence of Arabia treatment first night.

What’s? The? Point? I’m supposed to feel sorry because he’s American?

Seriously?

I’m not sure how far into the movie you are but it’s really a great story. Just think of it like any other prison movie, there’s not really a political message.
