Brokeback Locker Room
By : Wayne Besen - Friday January 20, 2006
by Wayne Besen A few years ago, I had the privilege of meeting a gay professional basketball player for the Utah Jazz. He desperately wanted to come out of the closet, but feared reprisals and career suicide. The man relayed to me the great difficulty of having an active social life in conservative Utah. As a gigantic, well-known black man in lilywhite Mormon Country, it wasn’t as if could slip into a gay bar unnoticed. There were teammates who were aware of his sexual orientation (...)

Brokeback Mountain
By : David McReynolds - Thursday December 22, 2005
by David McReynolds Being retired, I decided I’d catch the 3 p.m. afternoon showing of Brokeback Mountain, thinking I’d have the theatre almost to myself. I was surprised to find it nearly half full. I’d wondered what possible audience (aside from gay men) there could be for a film about two cowboys and their homosexual affair. It would seem there is a wide audience - and the film merits it. Brokeback Mountain is not, in the usual sense, a gay film.Those looking for much (...)

Hollywood may have been slow to reflect the post-Katrina reality of America, but it’s catching up fast with films like Syriana and Homecoming, says John Patterson For the past year the bald, ugly facts of the world we now live in have finally begun bubbling out from under the crust of officially sponsored bullshit that until recently constituted reality for many Americans. However, since Hurricane Katrina hit New Orleans and Hurricane Cindy Sheehan hit Crawford, Texas, (...)

Four Wizards and a Funeral : Harry Potter goes through growing pains
By : SCOTT FOUNDAS - Thursday November 24, 2005
by SCOTT FOUNDAS In the fourth Harry Potter film, the adventures are more perilous, the spells more powerful and the young wizards’ own bodies roiling with tempests of pubescent emotion. In the end, someone even dies. Yes, true to the prerelease hype, Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire is most definitely not kids’ stuff - the film, and the lives of its characters, have graduated to a PG-13 rating - and as one who has never read so much as one page of one Potter novel, I can (...)

Too Pretty A Picture
By : E.J. Graff - Monday November 14, 2005
By E.J. Graff Isteeled myself as the camera panned slowly over a vast, sprawling mine operation. I’d come to see the new Charlize Theron movie, "North Country," which is supposed to be based on a real story of sexual harassment at the Eveleth Taconite Co., in Minnesota’s Iron Range. I was expecting the film to bring alive the hostile environment the women hired there in the 1970s and ’80s had endured. If it was at all true to life,the moviecould be rough going. But I (...)

by PETER TRAVERS Does George Clooney have a box-office death wish? You have to wonder why the star of Ocean’s Eleven would risk his standing as a pinup for ka-ching to direct, co-write and co-star in a movie set in the 1950s, shot in black-and-white and focused on a fifty-year-old battle between TV newsman Edward R. Murrow, indelibly played by David Strathairn, and the Commie-hunting Sen. Joseph McCarthy. Wonder no more. Clooney knows exactly what he’s doing: blowing the dust (...)

Robert Greenwald’s upcoming documentary about Wal-Mart’s predatory practices is part of an unprecedented progressive media campaign. By Don Hazen Wal-Mart has taken advantage of the tragedy of Hurricane Katrina to try to distract the public from the myriad controversies that have plagued it recently.

Hollywood Studios must walk the Plank

The top 6 studios in Hollywood have received a green light from the US Govt. to engage in mob style tactics. Engaging in the outright theft of scripts and pitched movies by up and coming artists. Then making movies from those ideas without compensating the original artists. Then sending the federal agencies after anyone who they deem guilty of lifting $4.00 worth of video/music off the internet of these already pirated works. Then determining their own booty to be collected. As an (...)

"The lie can be maintained only for such time as the State can shield the people from the political, economic and/or military consequences of the lie. It thus becomes vitally important for the State to use all of its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth becomes the greatest enemy of the State." — Dr. Joseph M.

DVD Review: This Divided State (trailer)
By : buzzflash.com - Friday September 30, 2005
We didn’t think a documentary about a pre-2004 election appearance by Michael Moore at a state college in Utah would be so riveting and provocative, but boy were we wrong. This is a film that reveals an American passion play by using a real event to symbolize the two major warring factions in the United States today. Basically, three young Utah filmmakers were on hand as a furious debate was unleashed in a conservative Utah town, home to Utah Valley State College, when Moore was (...)

by Judy Hodgkiss Producer/director Ron Howard is now bringing to the screen, Dan Brown’s best-selling novel, The Da Vinci Code. With 25 million copies in print, internationally, the book has been breaking all records for adult fiction, even though the only version available is a hardback, selling for $24.95 a copy.

"Oliver Twist"

Roman Polanski’s astonishing film exquisitely captures both the anger and the cruel beauty of Dickens’ great novel. By Stephanie Zacharek Sometimes you look at a movie adaptation of a classic book and it’s as if you’re reading it with the filmmaker, turning the pages together. Roman Polanski’s "Oliver Twist" takes the useless question of whether reading is "better" than moviegoing and renders it academic: This is that rare movie version of a great novel in (...)

The far-right in Ukraine are acting as the vanguard of a protest movement that is being reported as pro-democracy. The situation on the ground is not as simple as pro-EU and trade versus pro-Putin and Russian hegemony in the region. When US Senator John McCain dined with Ukraine’s opposition leaders in December, he shared a table and later a stage with the leader of the extreme far-right Svoboda party Oleh Tyahnybok. This is Oleh Tyahnybok, he has claimed a "Moscow-Jewish mafia" (...)

I’VE DECIDED TO "WASTE" MY VOTE
Sunday 28 October
by : David R. Hoffman, Legal Editor of Pravda.Ru
In a 2004 episode of Comedy Central’s animated series South Park, an election was held to determine whether the new mascot for the town’s elementary school would be a “giant douche” or a “turd sandwich.” Confronted with these two equally unpalatable choices, one child, Stan Marsh, refused to vote at all, which resulted in his ostracization and subsequent banishment from the town. Although this satirical vulgarity was intended as a commentary on the two (...)

HIGHER EDUCATION IN AMERICA: DREAM OR NIGHTMARE? PART IV

by : David R. Hoffman, Legal Editor of Pravda.Ru
PART I PART II PART III If there is one major inconsistency in life, it is that young people who know little more than family, friends and school are suddenly, at the age of eighteen, supposed to decide what they want to do for the rest of their lives. Unfortunately, because of their limited life experiences, the illusions they have about certain occupations do not always comport to the realities. I discovered this the first time I went to college. About a year into my studies, I (...)

If there is one universal question that haunts all human beings at some point in their lives, it is, “Why do we die?” Death, after all, is the great illogic. It ultimately claims all, the rich and the poor, the mighty and the small, the good and the evil. Death also has the capability to make most human pursuits—such as the quest for wealth, fame and power—vacuous and fleeting. Given this reality, I have often wondered why so many people are still willing to (...)

How much corruption can a “democracy” endure before it ceases to be a democracy? If five venal, mendacious, duplicitous, amoral, biased and (dare I say it) satanic Supreme Court “justices”—John Roberts, Samuel Alito, Antonin Scalia, Clarence Thomas and Anthony Kennedy—have their way, America will soon find out. In several previous articles for Pravda.Ru, I have consistently warned how the Supreme Court’s 2010 Citizens United decision is one of the (...)

At first glance, it is almost unfathomable that anyone with a modicum of intelligence would have voted to retain Scott Walker as Wisconsin’s governor.

A question I’ve frequently been asked since I began writing for Pravda.Ru in 2003 is, “Why did you become disillusioned with the practice of law?” This question is understandable, particularly since, in most people’s minds, being an attorney is synonymous with wealth and political power. I’ve always been reluctant to answer this question for fear it will discourage conscientious and ethical people from pursuing careers in the legal profession—a (...)
