19 Oct 8:23am PEN America sues Trump for violating first amendment rights
The Guardian
Lawsuit argues ‘threats and retaliatory actions’ against the president’s critics in the media are unconstitutional Donald Trump has “hung a sword of Damocles” over journalists by using his powers to retaliate against press coverage he finds objectionable, according to the writers’ organisation PEN America, which has filed a lawsuit against him for violating the US constitution’s first amendment. Led by the Pulitzer prize-winning novelist Jennifer Egan, PEN America claims that while Trump is free to express critical views of journalists and writers, it is unconstitutional to use the regulatory powers of government to punish the press for its criticism.

Is 9 to 5 really a feminist movie? 19 Oct 4:00am Is 9 to 5 really a feminist movie?
The Guardian
The BFI says it is, but the claim doesn’t really stand up to scrutiny. And from Thelma & Louise to The First Wives Club, it’s not the only film that pulls its feminist punches Never let it be said that the British Film Institute doesn’t have a sense of humour. A three-month-long comedy season starts at BFI Southbank on Monday and runs until the end of January, showcasing everything from spoofs to screwball, sitcoms to slapstick. And the BFI has got the season off to a hilarious start by playing a practical joke on its audience: it has given the 1980 workplace farce

VS. review – the 8 Mile of Southend 19 Oct 1:00am VS. review – the 8 Mile of Southend
The Guardian
This low-budget British film about a young white male channelling his rage into the rap battle scene has real storytelling punch VS is a movie about the UK rap battle scene, directed by Ed Lilly, co-written by him and Daniel Hayes. It may be a bit rough around the edges, and rough everywhere else as well, but it also has real urgency and storytelling punch, and the contests themselves are tremendously witty, inventive and exciting. If you’ve ever yearned for more literate film scripts, more intelligent verbal pyrotechnics, well … here you go. It’s about a young white rapper who has issues with his mother, and naturally it may owe something to Curtis Hanson’s

Back from the black: should Amy Winehouse and other stars be turned into holograms? 19 Oct 1:00am Back from the black: should Amy Winehouse and other stars be turned into holograms?
The Guardian
The decision to turn the artist into a virtual reality experience has divided fans. Is she being vividly celebrated, or ghoulishly pushed back on stage without her consent? It is difficult to say which image of Amy Winehouse has lingered loudest and longest – wild-eyed and desperate on a street corner in Camden; scuffling with a fan on stage at Glastonbury in 2008; or perhaps as she was portrayed in
