I watched How To Get Ahead in Advertising tonight. Until a minute ago, I didn’t know that it was made in 1989. From the rhetoric spewed forth, it could easily have been written by the new generation of film makers that have been inundated with brands and anti-branding (the likes of Adbusters and No Logo). Beyond that aspect of the movie being a little bit tired these days, it was brilliant. Well not brilliant, but pretty damn funny. Some of the lines and moments in it were gold, pure gold.
