Get your water bottle filled because we’re off to the Dust Bowl! I know there are so many Dust Bowl movies and TV shows that air every week, but let’s look back at the first one, The Grapes of Wrath. John Ford adapted this acclaimed John Steinbeck novel with one of the best actors of his generation, Henry Fonda. But is it any good?
Sarah loves westerns! And The Ox-Bow Incident is definitely a western. It follows Henry Fonda and his familiar faced friend as they take on a moral problem. They also listen to DNC’s own MC5, ignore some frisee and take in the delights of The Mary Tyler Moore Show. Also, did Austin and Sarah actually finish Parenthood?!? Don’t look at the timestamp if you want to be surprised!
Film: 12 Angry Men
Director: Sidney Lumet
Format: Criterion Collection Blu-Ray
Fiction can be serve as a mirror to look back at ourselves or it can be used to make a world dramatically different than what we experience. The closer you get to reality, the more unnerving the experience can be. A fear I have is to have my fate be decided by twelve strangers. Just like we want for our President or teachers, we want the jury to be smartest set of 12 people that ever were assembled, because it’s your life on the line.
