Winning the Best Documentary award at the Liberty Film Festival was Stephen Bannon and Timothy Walkin’s In the Face of Evil, based on Peter Schweitzer’s bestseller Reagan’s War.

A documentary about the Gipper at a Conservative Film Festival. This was a slam-dunk win....

I love long reads (like this article) if they have something good to say. Crappy articles can't end soon enough.

I wonder if it's really about boycotting movies with certain actors. For my part, I don't have a list of actors I refuse to go see in a movie (except Jane Fonda). On the other hand, I know if Tim Robbins or Sean Penn are in a movie I am going to be too pissed off or distracted to enjoy the movie, so I don't bother. I believe that is what may be going on with movie goers. When I am looking for a movie to go see I scan down the list, if I see an actor I really despise, I just keep scanning.

It's a good and informative article, and dropped in some names as future Hollywood conservatives to look out for. I am frustrated by Hollywood, but I get weary of some of the criticism as well. It's one thing to get onto Hollywood's case for a definite anti-American message, or for putting too much sex in PG and PG-13 movies, it's another thing to suggest that the only good movies are ones that have perfect noble heroes and a heavy handed moral message. Film is just another form of storytelling, and if you suggest that the only good stories are moralistic homilies, you've chopped off about 75% of World Literature. Goodbye Shakespeare, the Iliad, Anne Karenina, Kurosawa, and the very artform of the tragedy. There is plenty of room in storytelling to deal w/ "what if?" scenarios, philosophy, and difficult so called "gray area" conflicts. Heck, that is the *point* of storytelling.

I get the feeling that if some conservatives had their way, Citizen Kane and the Godfather would be deemed inappropriate for the average American citizen's viewing, because they don't have the right "message". It's one thing to criticize agenda driven films like the Cider House Rules or this Good Night Good Luck nonsense--I'm all for that--it's another to lambast any film that depicts the obvious flaws in human nature and/or it doesn't take an obvious moral stance. Although I'm glad films like "Because of Winn Dixie" exist for young families, I'd go crazy if those were the ONLY types of films out there. Too many conservatives jump the gun down any film's throat that presents a unresolved moral conflict. The big (recent) example of this is Million Dollar Baby, which most bashers didn't even watch, but it was made by one of the few Republicans in the system (Eastwood), and he himself denied any agenda. It wasn't pro-euthenasia, any more than Anne Karenina was pro-suicide or the Iliad was pro-anger. It becomes a "boy who cries wolf" scenario, when critics just decry *anything* that doesn't follow the methodical preaching of a "Left Behind" "novel", and the more serious criticism of blatant brainwashing ala Barback Mountain become muted shouts. Fiction is fiction, it's free to speculate and challenge, to play w/ the rules and act as catharsis. Ethics, philosophy and religion is there to guide us how to live--not stories.

Excellent article, Lorianne:

We're not out of the woods yet, but it's a start.

I've a feeling that "Narnia" is going to do HUGE business throughout the Holidays and well into February and March.

Jack.

“This is what many people in the movie industry don’t get: when you express hostility to conservatives, many Americans feel that you’re expressing hostility to them.”

When the media tried suckering Michael Jordan into taking a political position, he declined to do so, saying, "Republicans buy Nikes too." When you're trying to sell something, it's just good business sense to not do anything to drive customers away -- or to violate your contract with Nike.
