See this film: Ayn Rand & the Prophecy of Atlas Shrugged @ the Regent Theatre

If there ever is a biopic of Ayn Rand, Nicolas Cage should play the lead; the resemblance is uncanny. In the meantime, you can watch Chris Mortensen's documentary Ayn Rand & the Prophecy of Atlas Shrugged (2011) which traces the lasting popularity and influence of the controversial writer and philosopher's 1957 novel, a dystopian cautionary tale about a future USA brought to its knees by tax-and-spend liberals, big government, and all the "moochers" and "looters" who dare to show charity towards their fellow man. Sound familiar? As the film notes, Rand's "Objectivist" philosophy inspires today's libertarians and neoconservatives. It screens at the Regent Theatre, 7 Medford St, Arlington | Tuesday, January 17 @ 7:30 pm | $10 | 781.646.4849
