THE MOST DANGEROUS MAN IN AMERICA: DANIEL ELLSBERG AND THE PENTAGON PAPERS

The Most Dangerous Man In America

“They say that those who don’t learn from history are doomed to repeat it, and if The Most Dangerous Man In America proves anything, it’s that we’ve been stuck in a feedback loop for decades. It’s déjà vu all over again, except now neither the heroes nor the villains have any balls.” – Philadelphia Weekly, 03/31/2010

MOTHER

Mother

“Bong’s fourth feature is a slippery little number. Stubbornly refusing to let us get comfortable within any of the ever-shifting tones and red-herring plot strands, it’s a whodunit like no other—veering from social satire to family drama to absurdist comedy and back again. Oddly enough, it also feels a bit familiar.” – Philadelphia Weekly, 03/17/2010

A PROPHET

A Prophet

“Malik’s cagey manipulations pay off with perversely crowd-pleasing efficiency. Yet A Prophet’s brilliant closing shot hints at something deeper, framing our hero in something like a parade of his newfound power and influence. But a telephoto lens gives the image an eerie compression, hinting at consequences lurking just over his shoulder.” – Philadelphia Weekly, 03/10/2010

“So, an Arab and a Jew team up to make a movie about life in the Middle East… I know it sounds like the set-up for one of my dad’s jokes, but this really is the story behind Ajami, a collaboration between co-writers and co-directors Scandar Copti and Yaron Shani, chronicling the countless ways sectarian strife creeps into and poisons everything.” – Philadelphia Weekly, 03/03/2010
