Sarah Palin: You Betcha. A Conversation With Director Nick Broomfield
Arts Express: Sarah Palin: You Betcha.
UK filmmaker Nick Broomfield (Aileen Wuornos: Death Of A Serial Killer) talks penetrating Palin's bubbly facade to uncover the right wing politician's connections to the Koch Brothers, Rupert Murdoch, the Tea Party and intimations of the Antichrist. While intent on 'slowly cracking into those well-rehearsed myths surrounding her.' And why with an apocalyptically minded evangelist like Palin who with her allies has come so dangerously close to her finger on that nuclear button, it might be a good idea to be very afraid.
**Trespass: Veteran director Joel Schumacher (Phone Booth, Phantom Of The Opera) deciphers what's going down in his self-described venture into economic crisis class warfare cinema, with Trespass. And how the movie starring Nicolas Cage and Nicole Kidman gets down and dirty unraveling this have-nots home invasion thriller; the politics of money and masculinity; and what in the world is a post-9/11 Hollywood elite anti-terror CIA civilian body suit. And, Joel takes a bathroom break.
