Two Thumbs Up!

November 13, 2005 11:41 PM

Roger Ebert totally gets our movies. He called Fox News a Republican propaganda machine, and he says "Wal-Mart, on balance, has not been good for America."

Check out video of Ebert & Roeper's review.

Here's another of my favorite reviews this week.. Ty Burr at the Boston Globe: "The movie's masterstroke is to avoid interviewing the usual anti-globalist suspects and let solid, hard-working middle Americans speak. ... 'Wal-Mart' is advocacy journalism at its most unsparing, and it demands to be seen, discussed, argued with, and acted upon."

"By the final credits you may want to picket Sam Walton's grave."

I can't wait to see the movie and to see what effect it has on our community which has been deeply divided by the prospect of a Super Wal-Mart. Our screening is Sunday. I'll keep you posted, of course.
