Oliver Stone on Occupy Wall Street: ‘Grab the Power’

The collaboration between director Oliver Stone and one-man political think tank Tariq Ali began not three years ago, but their mind-meld has already produced three projects spanning multiple continents and eras. Stone gave a talk in Los Angeles last weekend … (more)

Sarandon vs. the Vatican

Susan Sarandon is known for rousing the rabble, both onscreen and off, and she has infused her public persona with her politics in a way that has made her a celebrity spokeswoman for a certain brand of lefty sensibility and a lightning rod for the right. She does give the impression ... (more)

‘The Social Network’: Your Life in Pixels

The 1970s were branded the “Me Decade” long ago, but whatever shadowy committee makes such important temporal pronouncements might want to reconsider that call in light of the last 10 years.

Kasia Anderson on Barbara Walters

“Audition” details the life story, both in front of the camera and behind the scenes, of a pioneering journalist-entertainer who reported the news while making it in ways both admirable and troubling.

Election Day
Arts Engine Inc.

Portrait of an American Election

“Election Day” isn’t a film that highlights the horse-race aspect of American politics, nor is it about red or blue states. Instead, director Katy Chevigny and her colleagues from Arts Engine Inc. aimed to capture a much more complex story—or rather, a multilayered and interconnecting set of stories—about an array of Americans from different states, backgrounds and political positions, all taking part in some way in the 2004 U.S. presidential election.

The Truthdig Interview With Naomi Klein

Critics and challengers of Naomi Klein’s work had better take a close look at her latest book, “The Shock Doctrine: The Rise of Disaster Capitalism,” before launching their attacks.

Tim Robbins on Orwell, Obama and the Media

It’s usually a reliable sign that a once-original idea has been utterly stripped of its impact by the time it becomes the premise for a reality television show. Not so for “Big Brother.” Several seasons of that particular televised train wreck have come and gone, and besides, Apple Computer also cashed in on the whole surveillance paranoia theme ages ago. Big Brother is watching. We get it.

If Foster’s Not Coming Out, CNN’s Coming In

One major price of fame is, famously, the lack of personal privacy that comes with the package.  This issue gets trickier when it comes to homosexuality and the practice of outing public figures, as various media outlets have long attempted to do in Jodie Foster’s case.

Purpose and Predictability

“Lions for Lambs” is certainly an ambitious movie. It features an ambitious starring lineup, and it plays on ambitious and timely themes: America at war in Iraq and Afghanistan, post-9/11 media complacency and individual responsibility in morally ambiguous situations.  Too bad it’s just not a very good movie.

Kucinich Calls Out Clinton’s Nuclear Blunder

In what may have been one of the most controversial (and contradictory) missteps made yet in this pre-election season, Hillary Clinton refused, however ambiguously, to rule out using nuclear weapons to combat terrorists in Pakistan and Afghanistan.  Though the media at large barely registered her comment, it wasn’t lost on Rep. Dennis Kucinich, who takes Clinton to task in an exclusive interview with Truthdig.
