The Crafts on Putting Together Rod Lurie’s ‘The Outpost’

Based on CNN reporter Jake Tapper’s nonfiction book of the same name, Rod Lurie’s new film “The Outpost” recreates the Battle of Kamdesh – a bloody 2009 showdown in Afghanistan between 53 U.S. soldiers and more than 400 enemy insurgents – with startling authenticity. When the time came to mount his re-enactment of this dramatic […]

'The Outpost' is a visceral portrayal of war

Killing Reagan: A Film in Need of Life Support

Sunday night, I found myself in the crosshairs of the long-awaited Killing Reagan, and, well, I was not exactly slain. That was not due to any preconceived political ideas about Reagan. Frankly, now trapped in the political hospice called the Trump and Hillary room, even a passing revisit of Reagan's life, albeit at his nadir, swept in a momentary breath of optimism. The inspiration for this biopic was the book by Bill O'Reilly and Martin Dugard, another in the Killing Series page-turners; this...

Bill had a few notes, some suggestions, but was clearly jazzed -- especially by the performances of Tim Matheson as Ronnie and Cynthia Nixon as Nancy. Now, of course I was happy with Bill's reaction. He is, after a...
