NEW FILM TITLES (30 January 2008) INCLUDE two of Buñuel's Mexican films with
English sub-titles ‹ black comedies about men with dark obsessions:

Ensayo de un crimen ‹ The Criminal Life of Archibaldo de la Cruz (1955 Luis
Buñuel ‹ Feature ‹ English subtitles)
http://www.brightcove.tv/title.jsp?title=1396937710

El ‹ This Strange Passion (1952 Luis Buñuel ‹ Feature ‹ English subtitles)
http://www.brightcove.tv/title.jsp?title=1396937674

...and an intelligent film about romance and justice in which Cary Grant
plays an anarchist falsely accused of burning down the factory in which he
works:

The Talk of the Town (1942 George Stevens)
http://www.brightcove.tv/title.jsp?title=1393777698

And one of the most powerful documentaries we have yet seen on the growth of
the US radical movement in the 1960s. Unfortunately, we had to break it into
ten segments due to copyright problems with the musical soundtrack:

Berkeley in the 60s 1 (of 10) (1990 Mark Kitchell ‹ Documentary)
