So that’s a firm ixnay on Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu‘s Bardo (or False Chronicle of a Handful of Truths) debuting in Cannes a few weeks hence.

Probably because their testosterone levels were too low, I’m guessing. They resultantly lacked sufficient manliness — unlike Will Smith, they simply didn’t have the nerve to occasionally throw down and “straighten” each other out.
