Killers Kill, But ‘VF’ Just Hurts

As if Graydon Carter's inability to sell his latest documentary, Chicago 10 , at Sundance wasn't proof enough that the fabulously coiffed magazine editor should perhaps get out of the movie-production business, we point you to Killers Kill, Dead Men Die, a faux-noir video montage now available on VanityFair.com to promote the magazine's new Hollywood Issue. We have no idea who wrote that drivel, how much they had to pay Ben Shenkman to get him to narrate it, or whether it's intentional or accidental that it seems like Dead Men Don't Wear Plaid–style noir spoof, but, regardless of the answers, this much is clear: It's time you put down the camera, Graydon, and got back to filling people's dinner reservations.
