Take for instance, University of Arizona Professor Noam Chomsky, one of the most influential public intellectuals in the world, speaking with Regents’ Professor Toni Massaro about social justice and the environment. Here he is, in person, being honored as every word he speaks is treated as a jewel. Considered the founder of modern linguistics, Chomsky has written more than 100 books, his most recent being Requiem for the American Dream: The 10 Principles of Concentration of Wealth & Power. An ardent free speech advocate, Chomsky has published and lectured widely on U.S. foreign policy, Mideast politics, terrorism, democratic society and war. Chomsky, who joined the UA faculty this fall, is a laureate professor in the Department of

First Trailer for A24's 'The Ballad of Lefty Brown' Starring Bill Pullman

"Chase down Eddie's killer, then bring him back." A24 has debuted a trailer for western drama The Ballad of Lefty Brown, from filmmaker Jared Moshe, which first premiered at the SXSW Film Festival this year. Bill Pullman stars as washed-up sidekick Lefty Brown, who watches his longtime friend/partner murdered before his eyes. He decides to go after the killer, rallying a group of people to support him, including an old, experienced gunhand and a young cowboy. The full cast includes Kathy Baker, Jim Caviezel, Tommy Flanagan, Diego Josef, and Joe Anderson, with an appearance by Peter Fonda as Lefty's murdered friend. This looks damn good, a moody revenge western with some real grit. Pullman seems great as always. Here's the first trailer (+ poster) for Jared Moshe's The Ballad of Lefty Brown, from A24's YouTube: Aging sidekick Lefty Brown (Bill Pullman) has ridden with Eddie Johnson (Peter Fonda) his entire life.

Ballad of Lefty Brown Trailer Has Bill Pullman Seeking Justice
A24 Films has released the first trailer for their upcoming Western The Ballad of Lefty Brown, which hits theaters this December and could be a dark horse Oscar candidate. Since most of the Oscar candidates won't be released until either November of December, it's tough to tell which films could be contenders or not, but with a stellar cast and a classic revenge Western, it wouldn't be surprising if A24 goes for back-to-back Best Picture Oscars this year, after winning with Moonlight last year. Still, we have a long way to go before the awards season starts coming into focus, but this may very well be one film to keep your eye on.
