The Warrior Queen of Jhansi, Radioflash, Fantastic Fungi, No Safe Spaces
The Cave **** Pediatrician Dr. Amani Ballour is a hero(ine) for our times, one whom most of us in the West cannot even fathom the sacrifice, bravery and audacity of, though this harrowing documentary does an excellent job of trying to convey it. Syrian filmmaker Feras Fayyad (last year’s Oscar-nominated Last Men in Aleppo—is a fly-on-the-bombstruck-wall in besieged Al-Ghouta, outside Damascus, as Ballour and her coworkers try to keep their ramshackle hospital running.

Theater Review: Pioneer Theatre Co.'s THE LIFESPAN OF A FACT

Understanding the distinction between what happened, and what's true
The progressive theologian Marcus Borg, when considering Biblical literalism, once said, “I don’t know if it happened this way or not, but I know this story is true.” He was trying to get a fundamental distinction between what factual events actually transpired, and what we can learn from a story, factually inaccurate though the story may be, that speaks to our hearts. And that’s the heart of the conflict in The Lifespan of a Fact.

Movie Reviews: The Lighthouse, Dolemite Is My Name, Black and Blue, Countdown

Paradise Hills, The Current War, Where's My Roy Cohn?
Black and Blue ** Earnest social consciousness and gritty exploitation thriller make for an awkward pairing in this story of Alicia West (Naomie Harris), a rookie African-American New Orleans cop who captures a crooked narcotics officer (Frank Grillo) on her body-cam in the act of murdering someone, then has to run for her life from her own colleagues to preserve the evidence. Peter A. Dowling’s screenplay sets up the promising notion of West as an outsider now in the rough neighborhood where she grew up, having to earn back the trust of her old friends after choosing the side they perceive as the enemy.
