3 hours ago

Ever since his first directorial outing—with the revelatory Super Size Me—documentarian Morgan Spurlock has always been in favor of embracing experience, throwing himself into a subject, however discomfiting, to create an eye-opening experience for the viewer. Suffice it to say that with Discovery Channel’s Rats—based on Robert Sullivan’s book of the same name—Spurlock once again immersed himself in the material. A documentary that plays as a horror film, the project… »

23 June 2017 3:03 PM, PDT

Probably one of Clint Eastwood’s lesser-known films, the 1971 Civil War drama The Beguiled would at first blush seem an odd choice for a remake by Sofia Coppola, especially since she had never seen the original. But as I say in my video review above, somehow by taking the focus off Eastwood’s wounded Union soldier character and placing it squarely on the rising tensions — sexual and otherwise — caused by his presence in a school for young women in Virginia, it is one… »

23 June 2017 12:00 PM, PDT

An African-American woman living through the “peak of segregation,” Henrietta Lacks died of cervical cancer in 1951, unaware that cells taken from her body would go on to transform modern medicine and history at large.
