innocence of muslims

Another week has gone by, but you can do a bit of time travel (Rian Johnson told us all how) by checking out some of our content you might have missed over the past seven days. Sift through our 2012 Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF) coverage. Or, maybe you’re nostalgic and want to revisit Kate’s comments about feral children just like old times. Perhaps you just remembered you wanted to respond to Nathan’s post on how unfunny Ferris Bueller is. Whatever your reason, hop in and take a little trip with me. First stop, a very hot button piece on the huge story of the week, which wasn’t necessarily about movies: Addressing the controversy amidst the tragedy in Libya this week, Cole wrote at length and with great necessity on the importance of not blaming, let alone condemning, the movie Innocence of Muslims. As a matter of our First Amendment rights in the U.S.: “There are dozens of complex elements to consider here – personal loss, geopolitical cooperation, religious interests, local political posturing, Presidential responses – but certainly free speech is among them, and every once in a while (normally when something large and terrible occurs), it’s important to remind ourselves that we have to protect that protection even as we seek justice against the real crimes.”
