Axis Of Evil: Perforated Praeter Naturam

Arts organizer Jim Swanson, hoping to shed light on the myths of evil and its doers through the philatelic art of the postage stamp and literature, invited Michael Hernandez de Luna to curate an exhibit of stamp art with particular (but not exclusive) attention paid to President Bush. The exhibit yielded a handsome coffee-table book and served as the backdrop for this thoughtful talking-head documentary, directed by Carmine Cervi and narrated by Warren Leming. Among the participants are Bernardine Dohrn, Daniel Ellsberg, Martha C. Nussbaum, Gerhard Schutte, and Howard Zinn, though the DVDlike the bookregisters more as a collection than as a single coherent statement. 84 min. (JR)
