  1. Review: Boorman's 'Queen and Country' revisits WWII BritainRead the original story w/Photo

    17 min ago | Chico Enterprise-Record

There's nothing so jaunty or joyous in the writer-director's long-delayed sequel to that semi-autobiographical 1987 film.

    8 hrs ago | The Washington Post

Griffith's highly fictionalized history of the founding of the Ku Klux Klan, "The Birth of a Nation," made its national debut. And while I understand the impulse to treat the movie as a distasteful relic of an earlier time , a racist narrative that Hollywood ought to have surpassed long ago, I also think everyone ought to watch it.
