1. No, but I saw Jon Stewart interview the actor and show a preview.

It does look like a good movie and it's one I intend to watch.

3. I'm so old that I had to look up who Steve McQueen was.

Since it obviously wasn't the action hero guy.

The director of this movie is a black guy named Steve McQueen.

4. I was thinking along those lines as well

like, "Didn't he die a while back?"

Then, when I looked it up it's another Steve McQueen, a young black guy from the UK.

5. I've heard it's a very intense experience

I might try to get to see it, though.

7. Just watched it.

Feel like slitting my wrists.

Thankfully I have no ties to the southern "crackers" who imposed this reign of terror.

And spare the offense: I am not calling all southerners crackers.
