After Billy Jack in sentenced to four years in prison for the "involuntary manslaughter" of the first film, the Freedom School expands and flourishes under the guidance of Jean Roberts. The utopian existence of the school is characterized by everything ranging from "yoga sports" to muckracking journalism. The diverse student population airs scathing political exposes on their privately owned television station. The narrow-minded townspeople have different ideas about their brand of liberalism. Billy Jack is released and things heat up for the school. Students are threatened and abused and the Native Americans in the neighboring village are taunted and mistreated. After Billy Jack undergoes a vision quest, the governor and the police plot to permanently put an end to their liberal shenanigans, leaving it up to Billy Jack to save the day.

Billy Jack is a half-Indian/half-white ex-Green Beret who is being drawn more and more toward his Indian side. He hates violence, but can't get away from it in the white man's world. Pitting the good guys, the students of the peace-loving free-arts school in the desert vs. the conservative bad guys in the near-by town, the movie plays definitive late-60s themes/messages: anti-establishment, make love not war, the senseless slaughter of God's creatures, the rape of society (figuratively and literally), two-sided justice, racial segregation and prejudices.

"Lo stomaco non mi perdonerà mai le schifezze che l'ho costretto a ingurgitare e l'anima la devastante disperazione di cui son stato testimone… Sono nauseato di quest'umana voragine infernale che ha nome East End." A Londra nell'estate del 1902 Jack London condivide la vita di vagabondi, disoccupati e operaie, si veste da clochard e abita nel dedalo di vicoli dove, un quindicennio prima, si aggirava Jack lo Squartatore…

Far Away, Long Ago is my second collection of songs which is a mix from past and present, original and cover, traditional and brand-new. In keeping with a wish to recapture my unrecorded older material, there are two songs from 1974, balanced with three from 2015-16. The older material includes two re-recordings of songs from my 1994 CD, Dreams of the Songdog, along with a pop standard from 1946, as well as a few tunes, upgraded from my rock and roll "dark ages"; old wine in new bottles. The covers are by Dayna Kurtz, Jack Hardy, Henry Gross/Jack Lawrence, and a revisitation of a folk song, "John Henry".

Drummer Jack DeJohnette's debut as a leader (which has been reissued on CD) has quite a bit of variety. The music ranges from advanced swinging to brief free improvisations and some avant-funk. DeJohnette (who doubles on melodica) is joined by Bennie Maupin (on tenor and flute), keyboardist Stanley Cowell, bassists Miroslav Vitous and Eddie Gomez, and drummer Roy Haynes. He uses six different combinations of musicians on the eight songs (five of his originals, John Coltrane's "Miles' Mode," Cowell's "Equipoise" and Vitous' "Mirror Image"). Intriguing and generally successful music.

Compelling character study, revolving around Jack Flowers (Ben Gazzara), an American hustler trying to make his fortune in 1970s Singapore in small time pimping. He dreams of building a fortune by running a brothel himself and returning to the States to lead a life of luxury. Savvy but not unsavory he strikes up a friendship with William Leigh (Denholm Elliot), a genial and decent auditor who travels to Singapore every year. Ultimately, the background of the Vietnam War comes into the picture as Jack is offered the opportunity by the CIA to run a brothel for the R&R activities of U.S. soldiers on leave in Singapore.
