THE FOURTH WORLD WAR
- While American airwaves are crowded with talk of a new world war, narrated by generals
and filmed from the noses of bombs, the human face of war is rarely seen. The Fourth World War weaves together the images
and voices of the war on the ground - from the front lines of struggles in Mexico, Argentina, South Africa, Palestine, Korea,
the North from Seattle to Genova, and the War on Terror in New York and Iraq.
The product of over two years of filming, The Fourth World War is a new kind of film for a new world. The intensity and immediacy of its images are beyond anything the mainstream
media can shoot, the intimacy and passion of its stories are beyond anything it can feel. Narrated by Tony Award winner
Suheir Hammad and Singer Michael Franti of Spearhead, it is a radical story of hope and human connection
in the face of a war that shatters and divides.<http://www.bignoisefilms.com/4ww/index.htm>

STEAL THIS MOVIE

AGAINST THE WALL
- true story, about the Attica prisoner uprising and campaign for prisoners'
rights, and the massacre of the prisoners by the authorities.
- great science fiction film. I like it how the main female character
(the hero) is calmer and braver than most of the men and the marines, plus she shows a kind side too :)

CASUALTIES OF WAR
CHILDREN OF THE STORK (JE SUIS NÉ D'UNE CIGOGNE) (1999)
- Wow! This is one of my favourite films of all time! Tony Gatlif, whose
films Gadjo Dilo and Latcho Drom have been highly acclaimed, here turns his attention to the subject of illegal immigration.
In France, young couple Otto and Louna, anarchistic and unemployed, rescue a so-called wounded stork, actually an illegal
immigrant from Algeria, who is hoping to reach a relative in Germany after hiding under a truck. The couple team up with a
teenage Arab intellectual Ali and the trio, wielding a gun and travelling in a stolen car, set about getting "the stork" to
freedom. Stars Romain Duris, Rona Hartner and Ouassini Embarek. (From France, in French, German and Arabic, English subtitles)

COMING TO AMERICA
COUSIN BOBBY (1991)
CRADLE WILL ROCK (1999)
CRIMINAL JUSTICE (1990)
- How much justice is there in our criminal justice system(s), really? "Criminal Justice"
is a quasi-docudrama TV flick which takes the viewer step-by-step through the US criminal justice system from crime to punishment.
The film breaks down the whole let's-make-a-deal process using a Brooklyn N.Y. robbery/assault case as an example in which
the players are Whitaker as the accused; LaPaglia as the public defender; Perez as the victim; and Gray as the Asst. D.A.
The film plays no favorites as it takes a didactic and dispassionate look at the problems facing both sides in a case where
justice must be dispensed even though no one, including the audience, knows who committed the crime. "Criminal Justice" is
an earnest project which is more interesting than entertaining and is worth a look by anyone with an interest in the title

DIVIDED WE FALL
- Based on a true story, this black comedy is about the ability of fear and necessity
to turn common people into heroes. Set in a small Czech town occupied by the German Army during the last years of World War
II. One day a childless Czech couple named Josef and Marie come across their former neighbour (David), a Jew who has managed
to escape imprisonment in a Nazi camp. Although desperately fearful of taking on such a potentially dangerous responsibility,
they decide to offer David refuge in their home. This is the beginning of a dramatic fight for survival that forever connects

FOREST WARRIOR (1996)
- A group of kids learn about the legend of the ranger McKenna. Back in 1875, McKenna
was killed by men from the railroad because he refused to sell Indian land to them. However the spirits of the mountain brought
McKenna back to life and he now lives in the forest as a guardian spirit, able to assume to form of his favourite animals
– the bear, the wolf and the eagle. In the present, lumber miller Travis Thorne is planning to cut down the trees on
Tanglewood Mountain. While the kids are playing at a treehouse they discover in the woods, they encounter Thorne’s heavies.
As they are menaced, the spirit of McKenna appears to drive Thorne and the millers from the mountain and protect the environment.

THE FRONT (1976)
FULL METAL JACKET
GALLOWAY VS WASHINGTON
- On 17 May, accused of involvement in Iraqi oil trades, prominent British anti-war
MP George Galloway confronted his accusers in the US senate, and used the occasion to unleash an indictment of the Iraq
war with a stunning ferocity.
"I want to put these people on trial. This group of neo-cons is involved in
the mother of smokescreens," he said.
And he did just that, exposing the Senate committee's chairman, Republican Senator
Norm Coleman of Minnesota, as a "lickspittle" of the Bush administration and showing that the panel’s so-called
investigation is merely another attempt to justify America’s illegal war of aggression against Iraq and smear
those who have opposed it.
The bulk of the US and world media, outside of the most right-wing publications,
was unanimous in concluding that nothing like the MP's testimony had been heard on Capitol Hill. The senators
themselves were clearly shaken, forced to shut down the hearing early.
It was inspiring stuff.
- a great movie, made by Richard Attenborough, brother of the naturalist
David Attenborough - inspiring and emotionally moving - about the life of Mahatma Gandhi.
- based on the Emile Zola novel, about a mining community (in France?)
over 100 years ago, and the labour struggle at the mine. This stars Gerard Depardieu.

a masterpiece of evocative imagery, humanism and political sensitivity. A rare gem, a must-see film!
I.F. STONE'S WEEKLY (1973)

having abortions or not. Emotionally involving for sure.

IT'S A WONDERFUL LIFE
- I haven't seen this one, but the impression I get is that it's the
ultimate feel-good film :)
JACK AND THE BEANSTALK: THE REAL STORY (2001)
- a mature and fun fantasy story, with
many big names, such as Matthew Modine, Mia Sara, Vanessa Redgrave and Jon Voight. Was the "Jack and the Beanstalk" story
true? In this movie, there was a real Jack and the Beanstalk... but... according to the people of the land above the clouds,
(at the top of the beanstalk), the Giant Jack killed was a well-loved, good and kind fellow - and Jack's selfish theft of
the harp and golden goose have made the land above the clouds into a wasteland and doomed its people. The story of this movie
takes place hundreds of years after the original fairy tale, and involves Jack's descendant, and various interesting characters....
I was surprised to find that this twist on the original fairy tale is quite deep and meaningful - in many, many ways, it can
be seen as an allegory about colonialism and its continuing effects!

first union (with African Americans, Italians and other White Americans) in West Virginia, and about the labour struggle there.
- is science fiction which sort of hints at revolution against the system,
in capitalist society. Unfortunately more science fiction than political, but I liked the Krishnamurti-like, or zen-like,
"free your mind" type philosophy; and the questioning of the system.

- unfortunately some conservative partriarchal values, but otherwise
a great, politically progressive science fiction film.
- is a Disney[!] musical based on real events about these young newspaper
sellers who apparently led a strike of child laborers in New York around 1900. Music and dancing were silly and cool too,
I thought, and the story made me cry...doesn't mean the strike wasn't successful, though :) I won't give the ending away -
it's a secret ;)

in the early 20th century, like radical U.S. journalist John Reed and feminist Louise Bryant. Starring Warren Beatty, Diane

- about the revolutionary, Emiliano Zapata, of Mexico, who the Zapatistas
take their name from. This film stars Marlon Brando.
WACO - RULES OF ENGAGEMENT
- Walker - a modern day conquistador? Americans sponsor some guys
who go into a Central American country to bring 'universal sufferage' and to provide 'stability'. Sound familiar? Walker is
a tale of megalomania and ahistorical vertigo with surrealist parallels to the modern era. It's an amusing black comedy, about
equal parts Sergio Leone and Luis Bunuel. The dim and sarcastic view of American imperial behavior and myth making did not
endear this film to most critics, especially the anti-intellectual, anti-art, pro 'entertainment' hacks... but for the rest
of us, especially those with a skeptical view of offical history, Walker is both funny and frightening.
The film is a schizo, intentionally anachronistic bio of William Walker (1824-1860), the
Nashville-born doctor/lawyer/journalist who led his own private army into Nicaragua, ultimately installing himself as president
of that nation. Obvious similiarities between Walker's filibustering activities and the US's often ham-handed diplomatic policies
towards Central America during the 1980s led the filmmakers to turn WALKER into a political satire; it is by turns funny,
tragic, exciting, informational, and thought provoking. I suspect that George W. Bush's middle name - Walker - was given in
homage to William Walker. It sure fits, anyway!
THE WAR AT HOME (1979)
- Excellent documentary about the anti-Vietnam War movement on the campus
of the University of Wisconsin and in the surrounding city of Madison, Wisconsin, the state capital. Shows the evolution of
the resistance, as Nixon escalated the war and the deaths and destruction mounted, from peaceful pickets to increasingly desperate
efforts in solidarity with the NLF to "bring the war home". Exposes the connections of the University to the military and
the war. Doesn't apologize for the bombing of the University's Army Math Research Center.
- about some modern-day Native Americans who get in a racial conflict
with Whites and flee from the racist White police.

THE WOBBLIES (1979)
- is an awesome comedy set in Australia, about a wog (foreign-born)
man, who is on the dole and comes up against the "minister for employment". The film includes some really funny characters!
:) My favourite scene is when he is interviewed on TV by this famous usually right-wing tabloid current affairs show host,
Derryn Hinch - the Wog Boy really wins the day! So cool!
A WORLD APART (1982)
THE YEAR OF LIVING DANGEROUSLY (1983)
- a film by Costa-Gavras about real events that happened in Greece.
