Writing about Atlas Shrugged: The Movie opening Friday (can’t you just smell the flop-sweat excitement!), Michael Phillips, tips us off to the latest in Randian sexytime pick-up lines:
There is a woman at the zinc-like heart of it all, the railroad company magnate Dagny Taggart (Taylor Schilling, bland as water).
