Harlan County USA

Watched Harlan County USA again over the weekend. Saw it's initial commercial release in theaters. Still very powerful and resonates very strongly with characters and themes in Fire in the Hole & Which Side Are You On? The first lines heard are a miner crying out, "Fire in the hole." Florence Reece is seen at a miner's rally singing, "Which Side Are You On?" A critical assessment of the film is linked to below.
