Toll-road redemption (for filmmakers and legislators)

comment

I'm doing the deliberate slow clap (most redemptively portrayed in Corey Haim's Lucas) for Truth be Tolled documentary filmmaker and Trinity graduate William Molina and his co-writer Deborah Fazackerley. They picked up the Platinum Remi award at the WorldFest Houston Film Festival after their April 22 screening of Tolled, which followed last year's passionate grassroots movement against Texas Governor Rick Perry's gift to toll-road builders: the Trans-Texas Corridor.

I had given Tolled caustic review back in October when they first rush released it. (Deborah admits they hurried to affect the November elections: Perry still won, becoming Texas longest serving governor and the Tolled team entered a new edit into the festival alongside 4,500 films from 37 countries.)
