    Timeliest DVD: Nanni Moretti's 'We Have A Pope'

    We Have A Pope—movie review

    Given Nanni Moretti’s track record as writer, director, and actor, there is every reason to have high hopes for his latest effort, 'We Have a Pope'. One would presume that a behind-the-scenes look at the process of naming a new Pontiff would provide ample fodder for observational humor. Instead, the...
