The American, open today (9/1/10) at many theaters

Categories:

The American
Director: Anton Corbijn
With: George Clooney, Violante Placido, Paolo Bonacelli, Johan Leysen, Thekla Reuten

First, the good things.  The movie is beautiful, filmed mostly in Abruzzo hill country in Italy.   George Clooney is in superb physical shape.  That is all.
A thriller about a man, Jack or maybe Edward (Clooney), who builds weapons for assassins on an as-needed basis, and is disconnected from real life.  He escapes being killed in Sweden, goes to Italy, and calls Pavel (Leysen), who is maybe his boss or something.  He tells Pavel that he wants out.  Ha ha.  Then, he disappears into the hills.

Voices from the Edge: Hurricane Katrina

Hurricane Katrina devastated New Orleans five years ago this week. Katrina's impact went beyond the loss of life and property to reveal deeply rooted attitudes about race many Americans thought had withered away. Jo Ann and Dave talked about the various aspects of Katrina's impacts, including the permanent displacement of over 100,000 residents, the reshaping of the city and the federal indictments against the New Orleans police.

August 30 Old Mole Variety Hour

program date: 
Mon, 08/30/2010

Hosted by Clayton Morgareidge, this program looks at how medical care is improved when delivered by people who are cooperating rather than being managed from the top; whether charity keeps us from dealing with the real probems; the new Todd Solandz movie Life During Wartime; and music that keeps lost causes from being forgotten so that they may rise again and succeed.

Songs of Lost Causes

program date: 
Mon, 08/30/2010

 With the help of the Old Mole's  radical musicologist Brad Duncan, we sample and discuss some music that keeps alive memories of lost battles that can nevertheless point the way to a better future.  Among the battles are the Spanish Civil War, the 1984 British miners' strike, the life and death of Malcolm X, and the ongoing struggle for the rights of political prisoners in Northern Ireland.  Here is a video of Ciaran Murphy's "Rebel Song" with images that give you an idea of what he's singing about.
