Not a great artistic movie, but it exposes the sordid racial history that is a critical part of our nation’s soul.

The Iron Lady

Like it or not, the film will leave you disappointed long before it finally ends.

History Buffs Will Like It, Though DiCaprio Is Unforgettable

In the Shadow of the Moon

Most of these surviving astronauts of the Apollo Moon Project participated in this documentary. The personal story told by these men was as enlightening as it was moving.
