IF YOU'RE GETTING TOO MUCH SUN:

Fourth of July, Fireworks and Film (Masha Savitz, 7/02/10, Epoch Times)

"We must be free not because we claim freedom, but because we practice it," said William Faulkner

Independence Day is the annual celebration of our nation’s unique legacy and its paramount principal of freedom. While many are firmly resolute in unquestioning loyalty to our country, others feel that we, as a nation, have fallen short of our original ideals and promises.

Wherever you find yourself on the political spectrum, the following films examine these ever-relevant topics, offering one facet to the complex rare gem that is the U.S. of A. The themes considered on this Independence Day are immigration, the wars we have fought in the name of freedom, and the American experience.


For a few years TNT showed the film version of Killer Angels, which is a tad uneven but unquestionably moving when Chamberlain orders his men to fix bayonets and charge.
