THE BEST DEMOCRACY MONEY CAN BUY Film Review

By Gregg Morris
fedoraOn the eve of The Mother of All U.S. Presidential Debates, Gonzo Guerrilla Journalist Greg Palast’s latest movie is showing in New York City, telling the story of his efforts to thwart  a conspiracy by extreme right wing powers to nullify the votes of at least 1 million people, mostly People of Color.

Millions of Americans would consider this an incredulous conspiracy theory, but this reviewer accepts its timely showing as a synchronistic message from the Universe about this year’s presidential election. Click here for review.

STARVING THE BEAST Film Review

By Gregg Morris, September 12

A lucid and compelling 75-minute rebuttal, eloquently expressed with factual details and analyses buttressed with interviews, of right wing efforts to radically change America’s public higher ed system with policies that cause skyrocketing tuition and fees as well as harmful reductions in academic services and support at public higher ed campuses. This is an issue that makes headlines but is not well understood by the American public that stands to lose a lot. Click here for full review.

Film opens with a fired up Democratic strategist James Carville guest speaking at a Louisiana State University commencement about the perils undermining public higher education.

I AM NOT A SERIAL KILLER – Film Review

By Gregg Morris
serialkiller

Made in the vein of five-star art house horror gems like EXISTS (2014) and IT FOLLOWS (2014): Low budget with the heart of a major motion picture. This is one movie I wish Hollywood comes calling with beaucoup bucks for the director to make a big budget movie.

Here’s a link to this gem of a fright flick.
