Uhm. Spoiler alert?
I saw Flight over the weekend starring Denzel Washington playing a pilot who really likes to party. Like reeeeaally likes to party. Like gets trashed the night before, the morning before (and during!) a flight but it’s cool because he takes a hit of coke before flying to straighten him out.
My biggest takeaway from the movie (aside from NEVER EVER feeling comfortable on a flight again) is: THAT’S WHAT COCAINE DOES?! I’ve never done cocaine. In the movie it’s kinda like… hey look, Denzel is a mess of a human, sloppy and drunk… then he snorts some cocaine and voila! New man! Ready to take on the world! Save lives! Testify before the FAA! If that’s how cocaine works I think I needed some like yesterday. And last Saturday. And most weekends throughout college. Get a new PR firm, cocaine!
