Yesterday’s movie was Last Best Chance, a powerful documentary about the Senate’s fight over whether to make U.S. immigration policies more sensible and humane in the post-9/11 era. The title refers to the comprehensive reform bill that was seen by its supporters as the “last best chance” this nation would have to get this right for a long time, and the film drives home what we lost when we failed to pass it. Here’s my review, which is part of Slant’s coverage of the Human Rights Watch Film Festival.
- Slant is reaching more readers than ever before, but advertising revenue across the Internet is falling fast, hitting independently owned and operated publications like ours the hardest. We’ve watched many of our fellow media sites fall by the way side in recent years, but we’re determined to stick around.
We’ve never asked our readers for financial support before, and we’re committed to keeping our content free and accessible—meaning no paywalls or subscription fees. If you like what we do, however, please consider becoming a Slant patron.
