Side by Side (Christopher Kenneally, 2012). A lucid and ambitious chronicle of how digital killed film, told even-handedly and with a pretty amazing array of the people who would know about this stuff.

At What a Feeling!, politics is in the air with a review of Sidney Lumet’s Power, with Richard Gere in the Karl Rove role.
