POLITICAL FILM SOCIETY BOARD MET ON MARCH 13
The Board of Directors of the Political Film Society held their second meeting
of 1999 on March 13. The Board counted the ballots for the best films of 1998
and adopted amendments to the Rules of Procedure, as noted on the website.

FILMS TO SEE
Members of the Political Film Society are urged to see several films now at
your cinema. Feminist themes prevail in Elizabeth: The Virgin Queen and The
Rage: Carrie 2, in both of which women triumph over irresponsible macho men.
Gay and hetero problems, often intertwined, are laid bare in Gods and Monsters
(about Frankenstein director James Whale), The School of Flesh (based on a
novel by Yukio Mishima), and Hurlyburly (fictional but pathetic Hollywood). My
Name is Joe depicts the travails of working class Glasgow as victim to
economic Thatcherism. None of these films has been nominated for a Political
Film Society award for 1999. Elizabeth: The Virgin Queen, Gods and Monsters,
and Hurlyburly are ineligible, since they were released last year.
