Clint Eastwood is figuring out his next project, and coming off of helming the highest grossing film of 2014 (domestically), he’s got his pick of the litter. What’s catching his eye now, though, is a drama about Richard Jewell, a man who heroically discovered a suspicious backpack during the 1996 Atlanta Olympics, and then was later vilified as a possible terrorist suspect. The project ...

She's Beautiful When She's Angry: Lessons

Posted 1 month ago
She's Beautiful When She's Angry gives us a passionate, vibrant summary of the Women's Movement from 1966 to 1971. The movie brims with the vitality of the late '60s and early '70s. The energy and color of the film makes us long for those halcyon days when our universe was being discovered. All things seemed possible when rights were being fought for and asserted -- not fallen back ...

Best Picture Nominees--Selma, American Sniper and The Distortion of History

Posted 2 months ago
I've seen all eight of the nominees for the Best Picture Academy Award and if I was voting, I'd vote for Selma.

I was a student at San Francisco State College when Martin Luther King Jr. was assassinated. The next day I attended a "memorial" for King presented by the Black Students Union. One after another, speakers (all male) denounced King for advocating non-violence. ...

A Late Review of Selma

Posted 2 months ago
Selma, directed by Ava DuVernay, is a movie of textures: the thin cloth of blouses and rough wool of suits; the thick lattice of veins beneath cracked skin and the glimmering rivulets of blood and sweat; the cold classical imperiousness of marble, the grating patchwork of tarmac, the rust and the rivets adorning the stale metal of the Edmund Pettus Bridge. Selma is a small movie, but it is neither ...

What Happened in Selma?

Posted 3 months ago
This is not a movie review, although I do discuss the movie Selma. It is also not just a discussion of history. When I ask, "What happened in Selma?," I am really asking what has happened since the events portrayed in the movie and what happened to the struggle for civil rights and social justice in the United States that seemed so promising in 1965. As a teacher and teacher educator, I hope ...

'Selma' Got It Right About Johnson, The FBI and King

Posted 3 months ago
The debate is sharp over whether the movie Selma got it right about Lyndon Johnson and his relationship with and to Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. A counter argument challenges the film's depiction of Johnson as at best wary of King and his mass street action campaigns in Selma in 1965 and the South for the passage of a voting rights bill, and at worst outright hostile to King's actions. This ...

The True Hero of Selma

Posted 3 months ago
How should we judge former President Lyndon Johnson based on the newly released and widely acclaimed movie "Selma"? Was he a reluctant, foot-dragging politician, or one of its heroes?

Some close to the Johnson legacy feel the movie that depicts the bloody civil rights campaign in Selma, Alabama that led to the 1965 Voting Rights Act has irresponsibly taken artistic license to portray ...
