In Smog and Thunder2003

  • 3.5
This devastatingly funny satire makes serious fun of traditional war documentaries, while taking aim at America's logo-crazed pop culture. In telling the saga of a fictitious Civil War between Los Angeles and San Francisco (Smogtown vs. Fogtown), the film lampoons the worldwide clash between Elitist New Age Bohemians and the Sitcom-Mongering Hordes of Hollywood. A hit at Slamdance and other festivals worldwide, IN SMOG AND THUNDER is based on 120 satirical paintings by acclaimed Southern California artist and surfer Sandow Birk.
