Famed English filmmaker Ken Loach is bringing his films to a small screen near you.  All of the director's films are up on Youtube for you to purchase or rent.  Youtube has been a destination for short films, tutorials, and cat videos, but recently wants to challenge other platforms like Netflix and Amazon in the feature film market.

Loach is best known for his work in the late 60's and 70's, but his recent work has been held in high regard, with his most recent film being selected to compete for the Cannes Palm d'Or.

Bad News, Good News

The old news mantra — if it bleeds, it leads has been replaced by if it’s gross, adios. The prospect of a news-free electorate is terrifying.


The news business is in trouble. In the past decade, more than 2400 local newspapers have closed. NBC Nightly News gets 5 million viewers per night, in a nation of 340 million people, so most people are not watching. What are they watching? Netflix.


For most of human history, people lived in a world without news. The concept simply did not exist. The idea of news is really a 19th-century phenomenon, driven first by newspapers, and then by electronic media which brought us radio, then TV and now the web. Now, it seems, we are headed back to a world without news. Not because the technology is not there, but rather because, increasingly, people are no longer interested in news, at least in the way it is packaged now.
