In 1999, St. Martin's Press recalls and destroys all copies of James H. Hatfield's unauthorized biography of George W. Bush, "The Fortunate Son."

    Janice Page Boston Globe

    The film means to provoke a closer look at the faces of good and evil. It questions whether we really live in a world that can be divided neatly into black hats and white hats. show more
