Truth and Our Brand Is Crisis both raise questions about political power and our process political. Writer/director James Vanderbilt’s Truth recounts the events of “MemoGate” which took down Dan Rather (Robert Redford) and Mary Mapes (Cate Blanchett) and changed investigative reporting, according to the film. Director David Gordon Green’s Our Brand Is Crisis sheds light on how campaign strategists spin their candidates for the ultimate goal of settling their own personal grudges.

Maybe it was a teacher, or a coach, or a spouse. It could have been a boss, or a friend, or our very own child. It could have been the guy who slammed your bumper in the parking lot and weaseled off into the darkness. Being wronged happens, and will continue to happen, as long as we continue to draw breath.

For over 15 years, I’ve never wanted to crawl under a table in embarrassment. Until now. 15 years later, the title applied, and I wanted to hide. Fortunately, I can laugh about it now.
I just cannot figure out the St. Louis Rams football team. They win and then they lose, they look good and then they look bad, there is no rhyme or reason. Right now the Rams are 3-3, two back of Arizona.« Previous Entries Next Entries »
