‘A Private War’ Subject Marie Colvin’s Death Blamed On Syria; Assad Regime Ordered To Pay $300M
A federal judge has ruled that Syria is responsible for the 2012 death of A Private War subject Marie Colvin and ordered Bashar al-Assad’s regime to pay more than $300 million in a civil judgment today.

‘Under the Wire’ Film Review: Hard-Hitting Doc Examines the Woman Behind ‘A Private War’

‘Under the Wire’ Film Review: Hard-Hitting Doc Examines the Woman Behind ‘A Private War’
When does sacrifice become sanctimonious? That’s the question that nags in “Under the Wire,” Christopher Martin’s documentary about fallen Sunday Times war correspondent Marie Colvin and her partner, photojournalist Paul Conroy.

Over and over we’re told what a singular person Colvin was, adamant to tell stories about civilian victims in war-ravaged Syria regardless of personal, and arguably foolish, risk. She’d refuse orders to evacuate particularly dangerous areas and would return if she had briefly given in.

And Colvin paid the ultimate price, having been killed in February 2012 in a bombing in the hotbed of Homs that’s rumored to have been a specified attack on the media center in which she worked, a day after delivering an impromptu broadcast on CNN about a child whom she and Conroy watched die. She believed that such a personalized report would move people to act, but her voice was silenced.

The Must-See Movies of the 2018 BFI London Film Festival

Matt Rodgers with the must-see movies of the 2018 BFI London Film Festival…

With the labyrinthine streets of Venice emptying to the sound of effusive praise for First Man, and Toronto readying themselves to herald the breakout performance of Lady Gaga in A Star is Born, (though surely this happened when she won a Golden Globe for her role as The Countess in American Horror Story?) it’s time to turn the spotlight on the usually rain specked streets of old London town, and examine the line-up for the 62nd BFI London Film Festival.

With 225 feature programmes screening at the Festival including: 46 documentaries, four animations, 18 archive restorations and seven artists’ moving image features, narrowing this down is something of a fool’s errand, and anyone familiar with attending such a cinematic Smörgåsbord will know that more-often-than-not, the real delights can be found away from the headline galas and red carpets.
