The White Tiger (2021) Diane Carson As talented director Bahrani demonstrates in his earlier films set in America ("99 Homes," "Man Push Cart," and "Goodbye Solo") this contrast of privilege and struggle is not just an Indian story. EDIT

Posted Jan 4, 2021

Posted Dec 16, 2020

Posted Dec 16, 2020

Posted Dec 7, 2020

Posted Nov 23, 2020

Posted Nov 16, 2020
Fire Will Come (2019) Diane Carson In their debut films, Amador and Benedicta suggest volumes with few words. EDIT
Posted Nov 16, 2020
Us Kids (2020) Martha K. Baker No matter what the director does, it's impossible to watch these stalwart young people without weeping - for their losses as much as for their gains. EDIT
Posted Nov 13, 2020
The Dilemma of Desire (2020) Martha K. Baker "The Dilemma of Desire" breaks no new ground with the form of the documentary film, but it piles on plenty of needed sex ed. for home and school. EDIT
Posted Nov 13, 2020
Ammonite (2020) Martha K. Baker "Ammonite" may not be totally true, but at least it brings these women's names before the public. EDIT
Posted Nov 13, 2020
The Social Dilemma (2020) Martha K. Baker Truly, this outstanding documentary is scarier than a horror film because it investigates truth in social media, and truth terrifies. EDIT
Posted Nov 5, 2020
I Am Greta (2020) Martha K. Baker "I Am Greta" does not electrify in and of itself, but it does record a few years in the life of a dedicated young woman who makes a difference. EDIT
Posted Nov 5, 2020

Posted Nov 5, 2020
Rebecca (2020) Martha K. Baker The mystery worked for Du Maurier and Hitchcock. Not here. EDIT
Posted Nov 4, 2020
Borat Subsequent Moviefilm (2020) Martha K. Baker His satire stands on the shoulders of Jonathan Swift, the 17th-century Irishman, who knew a modest proposal when he wrote one. Baron Cohen has written another. And it bites immodestly. EDIT
Posted Nov 4, 2020

Posted Nov 2, 2020

Posted Oct 20, 2020
Nationtime (1972) Diane Carson The rich, and sometime contested, diversity of ideas is on full display. Given 2020's events, it is not surprising, though it is unfortunate, that the National Black Agenda, published in May 1972, is still so relevant. EDIT
Posted Oct 19, 2020
