ROSS DOUTHAT ON HOLLYWOOD: The Return of the Paranoid Style. “We expected John Wayne; we got Jason Bourne instead. . . . Even in films that arenâ€™t taking thinly veiled jabs at the Bush administration, terrorist baddies turn out to be Eurotrash arms dealers (2006â€™s Casino Royale), disgruntled hackers (2007â€™s Live Free or Die Hard), a sinister air marshal (2005â€™s Flightplan), or the handsome white guy sitting next to you in the airport lounge (2005â€™s Red Eye). Anyone and anybody, in other words, except the sort of people who actually attacked the United States on 9/11.”
