'Five Came Back: A Story Of Hollywood And The Second World War'

  In Pictures at a Revolution, Mark Harris turned the story of the five movies nominated for Best Picture in 1967 into a landmark work of cultural history, a book about the transformation of an art form and the larger social shift it signified.

In his new book, Five Came Back: A Story of Hollywood and The Second World War, he achieves something larger and even more remarkable, giving us the untold story of how Hollywood changed World War II, and how World War II changed Hollywood, through the prism of five film directors caught up in the war: John Ford, William Wyler, John Huston, Frank Capra, and George Stevens.

Alex Cox And BasilicaScope

  

  BasilicaScope at Basilica Hudson running today and tomorrow and in its second year, dedicates its entire run to the legendary film director Alex Cox with his cult classics Repo Man, Straight to Hell Returns, and Walker.

  A visionary filmmaker who made the 1980s even cooler than they already were, Cox masterfully used satire and a rambunctious stable of actors to illuminate the sleazy politics of the era. Alex Cox will be in Hudson for the Festival.
