that Hughes himself was overtaken by and the film becomes very depressive and oppressive. Where you think it will be light and fluffy and full of '50s jazz numbers, it isn't. The romance between Lily Collins and Alden Ehrenreich, the chauffeur and the starlet, it is overshadowed by Beatty's own performance and perhaps his own ego overtaking his own film, which is quite a Howard Hughes.

Diamond differed: Weve happily amplified Palestinian voices in the past (see links below); and will do so in the future. There is absolutely nothing political about this decision. Further to that, I invited Ms. Schulman to write/develop a longer, full feature on the Palestine Solidarity Movement, as I do think the moral issues around divestment and boycotting are more urgent now than ever, and warrant more than a final mention in a text largely focused on the controversy around “Open Casket. Here are the links Diamond provided: Adania Shibli on Writing Palestine from the Inside, in February 2017 ; this excerpt about Qalandiya Checkpoint , from Ben Ehrenreich's book The Way to the Spring, a year ago; and this excerpt of Atef Abu Saif's book about life in Gaza, The Drone Eats With Me , from last year. I find it difficult to believe that a decision about Israel/BDS could absolutely not be political; and yet it appears that this has been a productive encounter.

Woody Harrelson is giving up a few tidbits about his upcoming Star Wars role. While the cast photo makes it clear that Harrelson has a role in the upcoming Star Wars spin-off about the life of the young Han Solo, few details are known about the film let alone Harrelsons role in it. When he stopped by The Tonight Show on Wednesday, Jimmy Fallon was determined to get some answers out of him, and while Harrelson skillfully avoided spilling the beans, he did drop some promising details. Im playing a guy named Beckett, who is kind of a criminal, and I am a mentor to Han, he said, adding: Thats all I can say. When Fallon sneakily put the cast photo in front of him, Harrelson wouldnt confirm or deny that the cast, which includes Alden Ehrenreich as Han Solo and Donald Glover as a young Lando Calrissian, were sitting on Solos ship the Millennium Falcon.

When we see them throwing rocks at the madmen who have taken their property, we want to cheer. The unspoken message of the film, conveyed by its tone and chapter titles/images, is that some form of biblical catastrophe awaits. There are many conceptual problems with the film. It does not touch on the original sin of Israel, the Nakba, the ethnic cleansing that allowed the establishment of a “Jewish state” in the first place in 1948, as Ben Ehrenreich has pointed out. The settlers are only carrying out a project begun by the original Jewish settlers in Palestine ( as I documented after staying with settlers last year ). Shimon Dotan The film also does not dare to mention the American Jewish community’s role in protecting Israel from any international consequences for its criminal conduct. The only American supporters in the movie are Christian Zionists as if they had anything to do with the Democratic Party's inability to take on the settlers.

Eisenkot not only supervised the actions as chief of Northern Command at the time – he later (2008) even declared it policy for future warfare: “We will wield disproportionate power against every village from which shots are fired on Israel, and cause immense damage and destruction. From our perspective, these are military bases…This isnt a suggestion. This is a plan that has already been authorized.” In other words, the genocidal aspects are not a fringe element of Israeli society. They are represented by its very political and military leadership. Genocide as an overall aspect defining the policy of Israel vis-à-vis Palestinians has been noted in various ways by leading historians, intellectuals and writers, recently also by writer Ben Ehrenreich . The campaign in support of Elor Azarya cannot be seen as disconnected from the overall genocidal vein that he and his actions represent.
