It is meaningful to consider the devil through the lens of each of the cultures and religions that have the devil as part of their mythos. The history of this concept intertwi
The Modern English word devil derives from the Middle English devel, from the Old English dēofol, that in turn represents an early Germanic borrowing of the Latin diabolus.

Based on true events that took place in California’s Central Valley, The Devil Has a Name takes aim at Big Oil’s practice of dumping toxic waste in bodies of water all over the Central Valley. This practice proved extremely hazardous not only for the health of the occupants of the land – who drank and bathed in water that was likely contaminated with an untold number of pollutants – but also for the farmers whose crops would wilt and die before yielding produce.

Oct 16, 2020 · Reputedly “inspired by true events” but really just riffing outrageously on the Central California Water Contamination Wars, “The Devil Has a Name,” directed by actor Edward James Olmos, who also plays a supporting role here, is an angry movie that’s angry about the right things.
