>EXPOSÉ---------Antwone Fisher (Denzel Washington, director)

>Good choice, but Antwone--expose of what?

i was baffled by that choice too; from
http://www.wsws.org/articles/2003/jan2003/antw-j29.shtml

"Antwone Fisher contains both healthy and unhealthy impulses. No doubt
Denzel Washington, an enormously talented and dignified performer, would
like to create some kind of alternate ethos to the popular music-rap
culture, with its glorification of backwardness and violence, perhaps even
to the worship of celebrity and wealth. But what does the film offer as an
alternative? The US Navy, militarism, patriotism, social conformism-and this
on the eve of an unprovoked, colonial-style assault on a small, defenseless
country."
