- The Disney film Big Hero 6 (At 29 minutes) - The Stephen and Jane Hawking story The Theory of Everything (At 38:30) - Jean-Luc Godard's visually playful Goodbye to Language (At 49:45) - The stellar, infuriating new doc on Netflix, Virunga (At 52:40) - Margaret Brown's BP oil spill documentary The Great Invisible (At 56:25)
Keep Westword Free... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism.
