LA Weekly takes a look at "Killer of Sheep" at 30Scott Foundas writes about director Charles Burnett.  John Powers calls the film the "best film about Los Angeles."  "Shot on 16 mm for $10,000 with a non-professional cast, this clear-eyed, poetic portrait of South Central Los Angeles isn’t merely the most sensitive vision of an L.A neighborhood — Burnett looks beneath the cliches found in movies about inner-city gangbangers — it may be the least-seen great film ever made in this country."


"Killer of Sheep" will screen at the Little Rock Film Festival May 17-20.   The film has a 92% "Cream of the Crop" rating on rottetomatoes.com.

    It's the slowest for movies. "Watchmen," the much anticipated film adapted from, arguably, the greatest graphic novel of all time, has stirred the emotions of critics.
