The series will continue April 6 with Fernando Trueba's Belle Epoque and April 20 with Jose Luis Cerda's La Lengua de las Mariposas. All films are in Spanish with English subtitles. The film screenings are scheduled to run at least twice a month through June 8. For more info, log on to or contact the Spanish Resource Center at 246-2261 ext. 125.

Film Review

Why We Fight

Clear-eyed documentary exposes the business of war

Why We Fight is among the most sober, clear-eyed and thought-provoking of America's recent spate of politically oriented documentaries. Directed by Eugene Jarecki (The Trials of Henry Kissinger), the film adopts as its launching point the farewell address of President Dwight D. Eisenhower. As he left his second term of office in 1961, Eisenhower warned--in no uncertain terms--against the rise of the military-industrial complex. It's a point worth reiterating: Eisenhower was a Republican president, a five-star general in the U.S. Army and the former Supreme Commander of Allied forces in Europe during World War II. And he used his farewell address to the country to warn Americans about the growing global “business” of war.

Film Review

V for Vendetta

Rebellious action film goes for the jugular

Back in 1982, two angry young English lads named Alan Moore and David Lloyd channeled their hatred for Margaret Thatcher's regime into a comic book screed against totalitarian governments. The edgy series V for Vendetta perfectly captured England's post-punk desperation, wrapping it up in an adventurous, illustrated tale of high adventure and vigilantism.

“Big Love” on HBO

It was bigamy--it was big o' you, too!

HBO continues to push the envelope of its ratings-grabbing, attention-garnering Sunday night shows. Now that “The Sopranos” is back on the air and soaking up a record viewership, HBO has paired it with “Big Love,” a controversial new drama/comedy(ish) about a suburban polygamist with three (count 'em, three) wives.

The Week in Sloth

Thursday 16

“American Inventor” (KOAT-7 7 p.m.) To give credit where credit is due, at least this umpteenth “American Idol” knock-off celebrates an intellectual (sort of) pursuit.

Friday 17

“Doctor Who” (Sci-Fi 7 p.m.) The Sci-Fi Channel scores some street cred (on, you know, nerdy streets) by importing the latest season of the BBC's looooong-running series. Christopher Eccleston (The Others, 28 Days Later) stars as the time-traveling tourist.

“Paddy Whacked” (History 7 p.m.) Man, is that a bad title--and on St. Patrick's Day, no less. The show is about the legacy of the Irish Mafia. Get it? “Paddy Whacked.”
