Film Review  November 21, 2014, by Marc Savlov
"...This documentary about the final concert tour of country-music crossover legend Glen Campbell that was undertaken while the singer-songwriter was descending into the haze of Alzheimer’s disease is a courageous piece of work. It’s also, by turns, hilarious, harrowing, hopeful, and sad..."

DAILY Screens  May 10, 2014, by Richard Whittaker
"..."There was nothing in the old film that we could really use and modernize it." So he turned to Hawks' source material, John W. Campbell, Jr.'s book Who Goes There?

Austin Opera Takes Aim at the Election With Its Adaptation of The Manchurian Candidate
Composer Kevin Puts and librettist Mark Campbell shoot to thrill in their opera based on Richard Condon's Cold War classic
Arts Story  September 15, 2016, by Robert Faires
"...In this most unconventional of election years, why not have an unconventional opera, one that speaks directly to American politics and also to the fear and paranoia that have become common tools in garnering votes and power? Believe it or not, The Manchurian Candidate – yes, that Cold War thriller about conspiracies, brainwashing, and a murderous coup d'etat on the campaign trail – has been adapted into operatic form by librettist Mark Campbell and composer Kevin Puts (former teacher of composition at the Butler School of Music), and it arrives in our politically minded city seven weeks before U.S. citizens choose their next president, courtesy of Austin Opera...."

Weiner sees the episode as evidence of Serling’s interest in exercising basic, inclusive empathy through narrative, of “looking for the soul in the life of the guy on the train.” He sees Mad Men as following in this rare lineage, exploring “moral issues of regular people, not written in the first person, no guns.”..."
