Game Change

Sarah, we hardly knew ye ... which is exactly the point.


Drama

Rod Lott
Nearly every scene of the made-for-HBO Game Change, I recall from John Heilemann and Mark Halperin's excellent nonfiction book of the same name. But the movie directed by Jay Roach (of the Austin Powers and Meet the Parents franchises) tells only half — maybe even just one-quarter — of the story, ignoring the 2008 presidential-campaign narratives of Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton and John Edwards for the one it finds most compelling: that of Sarah Palin and John McCain, and not the other way around.

Enlightened: The Complete First Season

But is it any good? Dern tootin’!


Television series

Rod Lott
Earlier this week, HBO announced the cancellation of Enlightened, which just completed its second season. It’s a damn shame, because in her four-decade career as an actress, Laura Dern never has been better.

Stories We Tell

Family matters.


Documentary

Rod Lott
Stories We Tell is not only one of the year's best documentaries, but one of the format's more unique exercises of our time. You may have seen a story of this type before — just not told in this imaginative a fashion. I was reminded of the rush I felt encountering Errol Morris' The Thin Blue Line or Michael Moore's Roger & Me in the late 1980s, and thinking, "Wow, a documentary can be like this, too?"

Tea Partiers for T.W.


CFN

Gazette staff
Can Tea Partier and former vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin’s endorsement help Republicans win empty senate seats? Former House Speaker T.W. Shannon (R-Lawton), sure hopes so. Shannon is looking to fill state Sen. Tom Coburn’s position when he retires at the end of this congressional session.
