"One of the most thought-provoking and powerful films of the year."—Richard Roeper, EBERT & ROEPER"Life in Bush America gets a blunt, honest telling in this documentary that makes you want to stand up and cheer without ever begging for tears or glib sympathy."—Peter Travers, ROLLING STONE
I had a blast last night. Tench Phillips of the Naro gave me the movie poster because I was willing to stand up and say a few sentences about the fabulous Dixie Chicks. It's a great poster....Thanks Tench.
It's so cathartic to actually stand in front of an audience and say, "I am disgusted and ashamed of George Bush." I suggest you try it sometime.
Tench was "brilliant" doing a double feature of SHUT UP & SING and the U.S. versus John Lennon. For those of us old enough to "remember" it was definitely a reminder of parallel universes. For the younger folks in the audience it was "eye opening" to hear the same rhetoric (God and country) used to cover up illegal acts, crimes of high treason, and other "dastardly" acts.
My recommendations is take the time to watch both these films this weekend. It's quite an experience. Here are the show times:
Sat, Dec 16
SHUT UP AND SING 2:30
U.S. versus JOHN LENNON 4:15
INTO GREAT SILENCE 6:15
SHUT UP AND SING 9:15
Sun, Dec 17
INTO GREAT SILENCE 2:30
SHUT UP AND SING 6:00
U.S. versus JOHN LENNON 7:45
