Jim Hoberman on American Movies and the Cold War

April 17, 2011

Films about the cold war were a staple of the American film industry for decades, symbols of the Atomic Age. Jim Hoberman is the senior film critic for the Village Voice and writes about cold war films in a book called "An Army of Phantoms: American Movies and the Making of the Cold War."  He tells Anne Strainchamps about a film called "The Next Voice You Hear."



This Russian author wrote a novel titled, "Master & Margarita" which some people claim is a cult classic. Rumor is that there is an English language film version that is to be released in 2012 with many famous film actors. Do you know if this is true? It is quite a novel and you could devote a whole segment to the book.
