I caught Charles Burnett's "Killer of Sheep" this weekend (I missed it at the Little Rock Film Festival).  In short, I thought it was marvelous moviemaking.  I've yet to see a film that so encapsulates - at least a vividly and as honestly - the life in the ghetto.  I can see why it took this film three decades to gain wide distribution; the music makes the film, and getting the rights was critical.  It is a must see for any true movie lover.

  • That Time of Year

    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.
