I watched the trailer for All The King’s Men for the eighth or ninth time last night, and I’m starting to seriously doubt my ability to watch the full-length feature version of this Steven Zallian film with anything close to a neutral and receptive attitude. Sean Penn‘s squealing, vocal-chord-shredding delivery of that stump speech (“Yo’ weel is mah strength!”) at the end is driving me up the wall. It’s chalk-on-a-blackboard time. “They want to take from yew…and ahh weeyull not let theyemmmm!”
