Kill The Messenger, starring Jeremy Renner and based on Nick Schou's book, is currently in theaters and will probably be gone in a wee or two. Why? At a nearby multiplex it has two showings a day in just as many weeks in release. the Web was briefly aflutter with columns recalling Gary Webb's crusade. The book, finished by me a week ago, is prominent today, and mentions people such as Robert Parry of Consortium News. Movies remind us of times, issues, and current events that once engulfed our newsstands, even if for a day or two. I'm glad the film was made and called attention to this subject matter, even if Schou's book ended abruptly and we sense parts missing from the main character's life. It's still a snapshot, and hopefully much more.
