More than six weeks after hackers attacked Sony Pictures Entertainment, its computer network is still down but the studio has not lost a single day of production on any of its films or television, Lynton told The Associated Press on Thursday, Jan. 8, 2015. In a wide-ranging interview Lynton talked about the company’s isolation and the uncertainty that was created by the pre-Thanksgiving attack, which the U.S. government has attributed to North Korea.

“They came in the house, stole everything, then burned down the house,” Michael Lynton, the movie studio’s CEO, said in an interview with The Associated Press on Thursday. “They destroyed servers, computers, wiped them clean of all the data and took all the data.”

“American Sniper,” based on Navy SEAL marksman Chris Kyle’s best-selling memoir, is both a tribute to the warrior and a lament for war. Shirking politics, the film instead sets its sights squarely on its elite protagonist (Bradley Cooper), a traditional American war hero in an untraditional war.

When a group claiming credit for the hacking of Sony Pictures Entertainment threated violence against theaters showing “The Interview” earlier this week, the fate of the movie was all but sealed. Even though law enforcement didn’t deem the threats of violence credible, theater owners and Sony undoubtedly considered the 2012 massacre of a dozen people in a Colorado movie theater. That attack came without warning, and there was no precedent for such mass violence against a U.S. movie audience. (AP Photo/Columbia Pictures - Sony, Ed Araquel)

“The Interview” will go down as the satire that provoked an authoritarian dictatorship, roiled Sony Pictures in a massive hacking attack and prompted new questions of cyber warfare, corporate self-censorship and comedic audacity.

DuVernay, a former publicist with two low-budget dramas to her name, dramatizes the events around the 1965 Civil Rights march through Alabama, from Selma to Montgomery, with a straightness of purpose befitting the famous protest’s direct path.

It would have been nice if Burton explored that concept more deeply, but what he’s given us is enjoyable and engaging: A visually stunning (no surprise there) evocation of the San Francisco art scene in the ’60s, and an absorbing portrait of a disturbing marriage.
