November 22, 2013 // Franchising.com // Our December slate is filled with great journalism movies and, possibly by coincidence, 'Anchorman 2' is hitting theaters. We have an interview with director Adam McKay to sate your Ron Burgundy needs, but that's just the lede. This issue is packed with front page thrills, including an examination of why 'Citizen Kane' honestly IS the best movie ever, a look at the gossip world of 'Sweet Smell Of Success' and an examination of both 'Deep Throats'. And as if that isn't enough, we have an interview with Cameron Crowe, a journalist who made the leap to directing, and whose movie 'Almost Famous' is one of the best depictions of the strange dance interviewers do with their subjects.
While we're getting our hands ink-stained with our celebration of journalists we didn't lose sight that it's the most wonderful time of the year. We have a little bit of holiday-themed stuff for you newshounds as well. Helping us make the transition from reporters to Christmas we have a look at why ''Superman''IS NOT a Christ figure. I'm so glad to have this cleared up. Also, we talk about how HOME ALONE has become a way for kids to handle their abandonment issues. You know, happy holiday stuff.
