‘Moonlight’ Review: Story of African-American Boy Growing Up Is a Gamechanger

It’s impossible to pinpoint exactly how Barry Jenkins’s Moonlight gets inside your head and makes you see the world with new eyes. But it does – and then it owns you. This is a game-changer, the kind of movie that defies glib categorization. Reduced to tweet size, it’s about the experience of growing up black, […]

Facebook needs to review its privacy policy, says HC

Mr. Roy had underscored the ‘technological impediment’ in completely effacing offending content from the World Wide Web as it is easy to change the ‘hash value’ that is the ‘identifying elements’ of any content when it is forwarded or moved from one platform to another.
