Vantage Point ★½ 2008 (PG-13)

Do they celebrate Groundhog day in Spain? U.S. President Ashton (Hurt) has just arrived in Spain to give the opening speech at a global “War on Terror” conference when he's shot.

American tourist Howard Lewis (Whitaker) with his videocam; Secret Service agents Thomas Barnes (Quaid) and Kent Taylor (Fox); news producer Rex Brooks (Weaver) and others all saw the event, but in different ways. Is it terrorists or a conspiracy? Sure, each version adds another piece of the puzzle, but by the time it all actually comes together, the audience may be too confused or bored to care. 90m/C DVD .

Citation styles

Encyclopedia.com gives you the ability to cite reference entries and articles according to common styles from the Modern Language Association (MLA), The Chicago Manual of Style, and the American Psychological Association (APA).

Within the “Cite this article” tool, pick a style to see how all available information looks when formatted according to that style. Then, copy and paste the text into your bibliography or works cited list.

Because each style has its own formatting nuances that evolve over time and not all information is available for every reference entry or article, Encyclopedia.com cannot guarantee each citation it generates. Therefore, it’s best to use Encyclopedia.com citations as a starting point before checking the style against your school or publication’s requirements and the most-recent information available at these sites:

Notes:
  • Most online reference entries and articles do not have page numbers. Therefore, that information is unavailable for most Encyclopedia.com content. However, the date of retrieval is often important. Refer to each style’s convention regarding the best way to format page numbers and retrieval dates.
  • In addition to the MLA, Chicago, and APA styles, your school, university, publication, or institution may have its own requirements for citations. Therefore, be sure to refer to those guidelines when editing your bibliography or works cited list.
