Some films really stick, and THE BEATLES GET BACK, the three-part "event" directed by Peter Jackson ("The Lord of the Rings") now streaming on Disney+ has seeped into my bones and will stay there forever.

In reviewing IN THE HEIGHTS I didn't understand the lack of representation of Afro-Latino characters [...]

I have loved Tina Turner from the first moment I saw her perform. It may have been her very first TV appearance in 1960 on "American Bandstand." I surely saw her one and only appearance with the Ike & Tina Turner Revue on The Ed Sullivan Show in 1970. I had no context for what [...]
