What HER Tells Us About Ourselves: A Conversation

"I feel love throughout this movie. I re-lived lives watching this. It was a teary viewing; for the person I saw it with as well. When I go to see it again, I want to go alone, so as to have a cocooned personal experience, unconstrained. Is it love? I want to curl up with it & keep it live in me as I feel it. So, yes."

42: A Conversation Between Odie Henderson and Steven Boone

Steven Boone: Odie, among other great things, you invented the term "lookeehere moment." You never gave me a precise definition, just plenty of illustrative anecdotes, but I'll take a crack at it: The lookeehere moment is that instance in which a stressed-out African-American male succumbs to pressures of racism and . . . snaps.

Quentin Tarantino's DJANGO UNCHAINED and the Many Spike Lees

Through "Inglourious Basterds" and "Django," Tarantino states that all power that dehumanizes an Other is bloody and treacherous, and that when it's performed in our name, we should know exactly what it looks like and anticipate tasting similar treachery in retaliation.

VIDEO ESSAY: Outstanding Collaborative Performance - E.T.: The Extra Terrestrial

For a pretty long time, Steven Spielberg’s "E.T. The Extraterrestrial" was the top grossing film ever made, and it’s still one of the most beloved. The title character is a space alien. Who plays him? It’s hard to even begin to answer that question. There were so many people involved, and they all contributed something. But it you rule out the obvious suspects – Spielberg, who directed the movie, and Melissa Mathison, who wrote it – it’s still a pretty long list.
