NEWS & OPINION

Notes from the graveyard

Notes from the graveyard

The only reason I’d called up Bonaventure Don at all is because I’d heard reports of a fox scampering around the headstones during his tours. In addition to sweets, I’m a huge sucker for friendly wild things.

  • Editor's Note: The real crime is our poverty rate

    The City of Savannah still remains at a stubborn 26-28 percent poverty rate. Poverty disproportionately impacts African Americans, also the community most disproportionately impacted by crime. This is no coincidence and is hardly rocket science, but for some reason many people have problems connecting the dots.

  • Editor's Note: Who owns the copyright on change?

    The late but in no way surprising entry of another candidate into the Savannah mayoral race means there is competition for the title of change agent.

  • Violence, interrupted

    As a denizen of a neighborhood that sees its share of crime but falls in the category of “good”—as in no one gets shot at on a regular basis—I struggle with how to support those who live in troubled communities without coming off as an interloper.

FILM

Review: No Escape

Review: No Escape

It’s easy to understand why this movie is getting hammered in many quarters as offensive agitprop. But I’d be lying if I didn’t admit that No Escape works on a gut level – I haven’t seen a more intense motion picture during all of 2015.

  • Head West for revenge with Danish flick The Salvation

    While the Western certainly is a staple of American culture, the genre has been picked up internationally; there are Australian, Japanese, and Korean versions, “Curry Westerns” (Spaghetti Western through an Indian lens), and even “Meat pie Westerns,” which typically take place in the Australian Outback.

  • Review: Shaun the Sheep Movie

    Despite being a silent film in that no one speaks dialogue, its references span the decades, from the silent masterpiece Modern Times (when Shaun’s characters do speak, it’s in unintelligible gibberish clearly inspired by the Chaplin film) to The Silence of the Lambs.

  • Review: The Man From U.N.C.L.E.

    This new film may not quite match the intensity or excitement of Tom Cruise's newest Mission Impossible edition, but it’s nevertheless a worthwhile endeavor, with director Guy Ritchie toning down the spastic shooting style that all but destroyed his Sherlock Holmes films with Robert Downey Jr.

  • Review: Mission: Impossible -- Rogue Nation

    For a franchise that began nearly two decades ago (and was a hit TV show before that), here’s one that somehow manages to retain its freshness.
