The Trial of the Chicago 7 ½

real life abbie hoffman:
"you are talking to a leftist. i believe in the redistribution of wealth and power in the world. i believe in universal hospital care for everyone. i believe that we should not have a single homeless person in the richest country in the world. and i believe that we should not have a CIA that goes around overwhelming governments and assassinating political leaders, working for tight oligarchies around the world to protect the tight oligarchy here at home."

aaron sorkin's abbie hoffman:
"i think the institutions of our democracy are WONDERFUL things, that right now are populated by some terrible people."

fuck you sorkin, you sanctimonious prick

the half star belongs solely to michael keaton, who i find it impossible to hate
