    Anatomy of a Fall

    Anatomy of a Fall’s Timely Moral Reminders.
    Equal justice under the law — remember that?

    Anatomy of a Fall got five Oscar nominations (including Best Picture of the Year) the same week our justice system was blatantly violated in New York’s E. Jean Carroll v. Trump defamation trial.

    Despite repeated requests of six separate publicists, Warners and Sunshine Sachs declined to show me a prerelease screener of and denied me press access to Justice League. Readers may decide whether this insult is from fecklessness, incompetence or more nefarious reasons.
