FROM THIS EPISODE

Another 16,000 homes were ordered to evacuate in San Diego County yesterday, but the good news is the weather is turning. Fish oil, red wine... so much of that stuff that’s supposed to be good for us is turning out to be scientifically questionable. In our weekly film wrap-up this week: Godzilla, Disney’s Million Dollar Arm, and the latest news from Cannes. The documentary Horses of God tells the story of two brothers who are recruited, groomed, and instructed in how to become suicide bombers. And in Egypt, four Al Jazeera journalists have been detained since August; one has been on a hunger strike for more than 100 days.
