Storyline

In 1994, the Health and Environment Subcommittee of the US Congress, chaired by Henry Waxman (D-California), held a hearing on tobacco products and health. Excerpts from the hearing, where the CEOs of the four US tobacco companies testified, are interspersed with clips from movies, educational films, TV commercials, and other promotional materials. Among the topics addressed in the hearing: are cigarettes the single most dangerous consumer product, how many people die annually in the US from smoking, is nicotine addictive, should smoking be banned in public places, do tobacco ads target children? (This historic hearing is referenced in the 1999 film, "The Insider.") Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Way Toooo Long
7 June 2000 | by See all my reviews

I realize that this comment area is not meant to function as a message board, but I feel compelled to respond to the previous user's comment. (That "The Last Cigarette" doesn't drag.)

I started off liking this nifty compilation of stock footage and commercials, but I couldn't believe how long it dragged out. I saw this at a screening at the Director's Guild in LA, so I couldn't just walk out. Basically, it's about three times as long as it needs to be. Long after the film has made it's obvious point, (Tobacco companies lie - surprise!), the film continues to chug along, making the same point with a seemingly endless montage of stock footage.
