Sidney Pollack, about news sources

 

Director Sidney Pollack died last monday 28 may. One of his most popular films is Out of Africa, with the touching soundtrack and the unforgettable hair-washing scene with Robert Redford and Meryl Streep (around minute 5’55”, one of the most breath-holding moments in the History of cinema). But it might be good to recommend another of his works here: Absence of Malice (1981). It is a movie that reminds us about some classic dangers of journalism and about hidden intentions of news sources, not necessarily related to the public good.
