Barack Obama

Published in Filmes/Movies

His mother remarried, a man from Indonesia this time, and Barack soon found himself living in his step-father's native country. When Barack was 10, his mother shipped him back to Hawaii to live with her parents. He went to high school, was accepted to college in LA, and two years later transferred to Columbia University. He eventually decided to take a law degree and was accepted into Harvard Law School where he graduated with honors. While there he became the first black editor of the Harvard Law Review.

Most people with such impeccable credentials would head off to Wall Street and make buckets of money. That wasn't what Barack was interested in doing however and instead took a job in a law firm in Chicago where he was hoping to work on civil rights cases. The program ends up covering his political career, running for the Illinois House, a race he lost, but then winning a seat in the Illinois Senate. From there he successfully ran for the US Senate. The show stops after he won a seat in the US Senate and there is only a brief update after the credits that cover his presidential run. This section was completed before he was the Democratic nominee.

This was an uncritical and generally flattering look at the presidential hopeful. He does come across well, as his friends and coworkers that are interviewed have nothing but praise for the charismatic young man. The one interesting thing that comes out is that he hasn't really had to run in a tight race (the Democratic primary for president being the exception) as his opponents when he won his two senate races were tainted by scandal.

Crash

Published in Filmes/Movies

"Crash" tells interlocking stories of whites, blacks, Latinos, Koreans, Iranians, cops and criminals, the rich and the poor, the powerful and powerless, all defined in one way or another by racism. All are victims of it, and all are guilty it. Sometimes, yes, they rise above it, although it is never that simple. Their negative impulses may be instinctive, their positive impulses may be dangerous, and who knows what the other person is thinking?

The result is a movie of intense fascination; we understand quickly enough who the characters are and what their lives are like, but we have no idea how they will behave, because so much depends on accident. Most movies enact rituals; we know the form and watch for variations. "Crash" is a movie with free will, and anything can happen. Because we care about the characters, the movie is uncanny in its ability to rope us in and get us involved.

The Interpreter

Published in Filmes/Movies

Escalating events begin when African-born U.N. translator Silvia Broome alleges that she has overheard a death threat against an African head of state, spoken in a rare dialect few people other than Silvia can understand. With the words "The Teacher will never leave this room alive," in an instant, Silvia's life is turned upside down as she becomes a hunted target of the killers.

Placed under the protection of federal agent Tobin Keller, Silvia's world only grows more nightmarish. As Keller digs deeper into his eyewitnesses' past and her secretive world of global connections, the more suspicious he becomes that she herself might be involved in the conspiracy. With every step of the way, he finds more reasons to mistrust her. Is Sylvia a victim? A suspect? Or something else entirely? And can Tobin, coping with his own personal heartache, keep her safe? Though they must depend on one another, Silvia and Tobin couldn't be more different.

Silvia's strengths are words, diplomacy and the subtleties of meaning, while Tobin is all about instinct, action and reading into the most primal human behaviors. Now, as the danger of a major assassination on U.S. soil grows and Silvia's life hangs in the balance, Silvia and Tobin play out a gripping dance of evasion and revelation that keeps them both guessing as they race to stop a terrifying international crisis before it's too late.

How's Your News

Published in Filmes/Movies

I know what you must be thinking. A film about a group of mentally disabled people on a trip across America would seem to be an odd choice for a documentary. One might be further skeptical to use those individuals to interview total strangers on the street. There's a fine line between mockery and sincerity, after all.

The success of How's Your News? lies in its cunning ability to present various slices of America through the simplistic viewpoints of five mentally disabled individuals interviewing common folks on the streets of New York, Nashville, and Las Vegas. With producers Trey Parker and Matt Stone (of South Park fame) and independent film producer John Pierson's financial backing, the movie's director Arthur Bradford takes the special summer campers at Camp Jabberwocky, loaded them up in a run-down RV with tons of camera equipment, and hit the road as a roving team of news reporters. The result is an often hilarious and engaging road-trip.
