On Demand Weekly provides reviews of TV series hot movies on demand from the POV of watching from the comfort of your home. Today’s review: “Pillars of the Earth” on Starz On Demand.

King Henry has no male heir for the kingdom, and the Church doesn’t find a woman leader acceptable. Cue the treachery and unrest of monarchical succession! Is it the Tudors? No, it’s the pre-Tudors, “Pillars of the Earth”.

In 2006, in the frenzied fear of Homeland Security, Drugs, and Illegal Immigration, Congress decided that what this country needed was a fence. A great big, expensive fence to protect us from the terrorists, drug dealers and illegal immigrants coming from Mexico. And so it was. Sort of. Rory Kennedy’s incisive documentary explains the foibles and follies of our protective boundary with Mexico. (Note that no one has suggested one with Canada).

Back in 1999, I saw Ms. Kennedy’s first documentary, “American Hollow,” and although heartfelt and sincere, it certainly lacked polish. Well, no longer. “The Fence” is not only entertaining and educational; it is also a highly polished and concise piece of documentary filmmaking. At a brisk 36 minutes, “The Fence” cleverly informs the viewer without undue polemicizing.
