Vice splice

I hereby ordain that film critics should start using this new term I made up for the way the camera in movies about the twentieth century emphasizes shots of people smoking in a place it's no longer legal (like an airplane or an office cubicle), or drinking or smoking while pregnant. (In case it's not obvious: after not seeing a movie in a theater in a very long time,* I recently saw Revolutionary Road and Frost/Nixon.) Dazed and Confused may have done it first and definitely most flamboyantly....

*Speaking of things not done in a very long time, I am trying to revive this blog. We'll see if it works.
