Review of 'Silver City', director John Sayles
John Sayles is unique in American film. He's a leftist who has chosen to stay independent and go off limits to look at race, immigration, class and the state of the movement. Some of his most recent films are among his best. Lonestar and Sunshine State explore how life in America's South is still shaped by its brutal past. Where David Lynch hints at horror beneath the shiny surface of contemporary America, Sayles brings racism, corruption and the history of segregation into the full light of day.
