  • 03/20/14--03:41: The Divide
  • A true globalization film, this time, however, mostly from the bottom up, as director Katherine Round follows seven individuals, all of whom face the great “divide” – between those who are poor or are the working poor or the struggling middle class on one side and the plutocrats and one might add their governmental apologists […]

  • 03/20/14--03:41: Compliance
  • Compliance dramatizes an event that will join the infamous Zimbardo and Milgrim experiments that indicated the tendency for people to obey orders even when they — it seems — must know they are immoral.

  • 03/20/14--04:17: Pride
  • And speaking of The Thatcher … director Matthew Warchus returns to the never-ending-wrong of her reign – the attack on the National Union of Mineworkers.

    As I think back on the last four years of the Labour Film Festivals in London and now Liverpool (North West), I am struck by the big generalizations we often turn to while discussing the labour and related films on offer. Globalization has probably the term been around the longest, denoting the rapid export of […]
