Jimmy Carter is Smarter

I forgot that the Image festival opens NEXT weekend and not this coming one, so this gives me (and you) no excuse not to see Jonathan Demme's documentary, Jimmy Carter: Man from the Plains. The academy award winning filmmaker boasts several awards for this project, including the Human Rights Film Network award and the Collateral award for best documentary. Following the public and private life of the former president, Demme shows Carter's passion for justice and aspirations for peace. A refreshing change from the trendy anti-Bush political documentaries of recent years. Basically proof that Left doesn't have to mean making fun of the Right and that political documentaries don't have to be 'shock-umentaries' that make people feel upset, enraged, but predominantly hopeless and try to forget everything they just saw before they go to bed.

Opens this Friday in limited release. See CinemaMontreal for details. Trailer here.
(And if anyone catched the reference in my title, (and I am assume no one will), there will be some sort of prize or acknowledgement).

What i don't realize is in fact how you're not really a lot
more neatly-liked than you may be right now. You are so intelligent.
You already know thus considerably with regards to this
subject, made me in my opinion consider it from a lot of varied angles.
Its like women and men are not involved until it is something to accomplish with Woman gaga!
Your own stuffs nice. All the time take care of it
