So in order to best cover all bases, progressive film critics tend to consider three categories of assessment, rather than two: The Good, The Bad and The Ugly. The first two are self-explanatory. And the third category is reserved for movies that may have been impressively put together, but there's just something offensively anti-humanistic about them.

John Boorman Talks Queen And Country: National Belief System Without A Soul

            John Boorman With His PTSD Muse, Lee Marvin

The veteran British director of Deliverance, Point Blank and Hell In The Pacific with his own personal and political take on Korean conflict, and a war movie without war. And UK military bureaucracy ranging from nasty to nonsensical. Don't expect The Interview.

Also, Rembrandt Event Cinema: The influence of bare churches, the brutality of art flung on the marketplace, and the advent of self portraits to the dubious selfie today. Along with the unique perspective of art in cinema, simultaneously capturing the painter's eye, the human eye and the camera's eye.

Listen To The Show Here

Arts Express, airing on WBAI Radio in NY archived at, and on the Pacifica National Radio Network.
