police department Other features slated to play at Sundance include Matt Ruskin’s Crown Heights based on the true story of a Brooklyn man falsely convicted of murder and the fraternity-hazing drama Burning Sands starring Moonlight’s Trevante Rhodes and directed by Gerard McMurray an associate producer of Ryan Coogler’s 2013 Fruitvale StationFor now though those movies are just titles with names attached How will we feel at the end of 2017 after we’ve seen them The final months of 2016 have been a viper’s nest of anxiety accusations and posturing with comers from all sides Suddenly there’s a rift between white working-class Americans and those they view as condescending coastal liberals–or rather a rift has been steadily growing and too many were too slow to see it This divide hasn’t hit the world of movies at least not in any immediately visible way But the specter of white supremacy has to be on filmmakers’ minds How destructive a force will it be That’s a question no one can answer right nowThe way forward and perhaps the only way to avoid madness is to think less about people who would like to obstruct progress and more about pushing forward In late January 2016 in the wake of #OscarsSoWhite the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences made an official move to diversify: its goal was to double the number of women and minorities in its ranks by 2020 What’s more the Academy’s board instituted changes to the criteria used to determine members’ voting eligibility requiring each member’s status to be reviewed every 10 years In other words if you’re an old-timer who hasn’t been active in the industry for decades you’ll have to meet certain standards to maintain voting rightsThe Academy too long a petrified forest with numbingly predictable tastes needed to be modernized diversified and electrified and maybe these changes will help when it comes to honoring good work in the industry But what about the movies themselves Is there any way they can unify our cleft nation or are we doomed to a future of filmgoing tastes divided between so-called cultural elitism and populism Are we looking at a future of living inside one roiling angry comments sectionMaybe it’s useful or at least comforting to remember that movies aren’t always what we want them to be when we need them to be Today Sidney Lumet’s 1957 drama 12 Angry Men in which a jury holdout played by Henry Fonda tries to persuade his fellow jurors all white of an 18-year-old Puerto Rican boy’s innocence in the killing of his father is considered a classic of cherished liberal ideals But as Pauline Kael pointed out in an essay written over 50 years ago "Ask an educated American what he thought of 12 Angry Men and more likely than not he will reply ‘That movie made some good points’ or ‘It got some important ideas across’ His assumption" Kael writes "is that it carried these ideas which also happen to be his ideas to the masses Actually it didn’t: this tense ingenious juryroom melodrama was a flop with the mass audience a success only at revivals in art houses"Movies have lives beyond anything we can imagine for them upon their release That’s true whether they’re flops or hits whether they reach the mainstream immediately or eventually or never The movie landscape of 2016 was better than many of us expected it to be but there’s a danger in viewing the past year’s movies–as terrific as so many of them were–as any sort of sign of great progress We can always do better Complacency and self-congratulation are so 2016 Last year and the year before and maybe even every year before that we thought we were stepping up to the plate Let’s see what happens now that we really have a plate to step up toWith the aid of a teleprompter Donald Trump on Tuesday repeated the defiant anthem of his campaign: selfish businesses are sending American jobs overseas and politicians have let it happen by approving bad trade policies “Our politicians have aggressively pursued a policy of globalization moving our jobs our wealth and our factories to Mexico and overseas” Trump said in a speech in Monessen Pennsylvania “Ladies and gentlemen it is time to declare our economic independence once again” He said the United States should rip up its current trade deals if it cannot renegotiate them and crack down on “cheaters” It was the most aggressive portrait of American economic policy Trump has yet given one that squared with his campaign slogan “America First” But that is not a vision Trump has always had In a blog post written just three years ago Trump called for global unity and international economic interdependence writing that there were important opportunities to do business in Europe And in a 2005 essay Trump said that outsourcing jobs is “not always a terrible thing” arguing for a more nuanced view of shipping jobs out of the United States Trump’s views in those two posts bear little resemblance to his apocalyptic view of globalization today Though Trump has long railed against bad trade deals his call on Tuesday for America to cut off much of its commerce with the rest of the world is at odds with his past optimism about international economic cooperation In the aftermath of the global financial crisis Trump wrote in 2013 said that businesses could work in a more unified world Trump advocated for “global unity” and abandoning borders “We will have to leave borders behind and go for global unity when it comes to financial stability” Trump wrote “The near meltdown we experienced a few years ago made it clear that our economic health depended on dependence on each other to do the right thing” he wrote “We are now closer to having an economic community in the best sense of the termwe work with each other for the benefit of all” He wrote that Europe presented a good investment option for American businesses “Europe is a terrific place for investment” Trump wrote “I am proud to have built a great golf course in Scotland after searching throughout Europe for five years for the right location I’ve seen many beautiful places” By contrast Trump on Tuesday called for an agenda of “America first” also the name of a interventionist organization opposed to entering World War II “America changed its policy from promoting development in America in in in America to promoting development in other nations” Trump said “We have become more dependent on foreign countries than ever before” And Trump charged politicians with helping American companies to move overseas “Our politicians took away from the people their means of making a living and supporting their families” he said on Tuesday “Skilled craftsmen and tradespeople and factory workers have seen the jobs they love shipped thousands and thousands of miles away” But in 2005 Trump explained the merits of outsourcing jobs “We hear terrible things about outsourcing jobs how sending work outside of our companies is contributing to the demise of American businesses” Trump wrote in 2005 “But in this instance I have to take the unpopular stance that it is not always a terrible thing” Trump has spoken in the past about how Americans are getting “ripped off” by foreign countries and bad trade negotiations but he has built much of his financial empire through international brands that rely on foreign labor Much of Trump-branded products including his suits ties light fixtures furniture picture frames and other business lines are made overseas The Clinton campaign has repeatedly attacked Trump for moving jobs abroad It has become a key pillar of their campaign: that Trump has hurt American workers through his businesses practices in particular by moving jobs overseas “He’s been a hypocrite when it comes to talking about made in America and then outsourcing jobs” Sen Sherrod Brown of Ohio a prominent Clinton ally said on a conference call with reporters on Tuesday “The reality is Donald Trump lines his pockets at expense of American workers period” Trump said in 2005 that business often need to move overseas to remain competitive “I know that doesn’t make it any easier for people whose jobs have been outsourced overseas but if a company’s only means of survival is by farming jobs outside its walls then sometimes it’s a necessary step” Trump wrote then “The other option might be to close its doors for good” “Losing jobs is never a good thing but we have to look at the bigger picture” Trump wrote Contact us at editors@timecomPop star Selena Gomez is a high-fashion femme fatale in her music video for “Kill Em With
