Man, is he good.
I know it's easy -- and often justified -- to dismiss actors and celebrities when expressing their political and social opinions. But not only do all generalities have their limitations, but the thoughtfulness and insight, mixed with humor, of one Jon Stewart is more than all the Louie Gohmerts (R-TX) you could put together in a lifetime.
By the way, when looking for things to watch these days, you might want to check out the first movie that Stewart wrote and directed, which he made while hosting The Daily Show. It's called Rosewater -- a true, serious and riveting story that took place in Iran, touching on events actually related to The Daily Show. The film concerns a Iranian-born journalist Maziar Bahari who returned to the country to cover their elections and was arrested as a spy for espionage. (While there, he did an interview there with The Daily Show and Jason Jones, who plays himself, recreating the events, and after it aired was used as evidence against him.) It's a rich, mature work about Bahari's experience and the efforts to free him, all the more remarkable for it being Stewart's first film. And for reasons I've never understood, it got almost no release when it was made, including no screenings or "For Your Consideration" DVDs during awards season. Speaking of which, it's happily available is here on Netflix as a DVD, and on Amazon Prime for streaming, though not included but for $3.99 rental..It's also available on STARZ.
