DocumentaryIn his short career, Jean-Michel Basquiat was a phenomenon. He became notorious for his graffiti art under the moniker Samo in the late 1970s on the Lower East Side scene, sold his first painting to Deborah Harry for $200 and became best friends with Andy Warhol.

Much can be gleaned from insider interviews and archival footage, but it is Basquiat's own words and work that powerfully convey the mystique and allure of both the artist and the man.

DocumentaryIt sounds so simple, yet in 1966 a young filmmaker named Bruce Brown captured the essence of a sport as never before. To stand atop a crescendo of water, to ride on nature's all powerful wave feeling the speed and spray accelerate with each moment and to embrace a lifestyle uniquely connected to a single word: surfing. The film was "The Endless Summer". Now, Bruce Brown and filmmaker son, Dana, have created an all new classic, featuring never-before-seen footage from "The Endless Summer." Embark on a journey of adventure, discovery, and the incredible challenge of facing a fifteen foot wall of water as the sport's greatest surfers look back on the thrills, the spills, and the movie that uniquely embraced the lifelong search for that shining beach, that glowing sunset, that perfect wave.
Documentary"Constantine's Sword," the latest film by Oscar-nominated documentarian Oren Jacoby, is an astonishing exploration of the dark side of Christianity, following acclaimed author and former priest James Carroll on a journey of remembrance and reckoning. Carroll, a National Book Award winner and columnist for the Boston Globe, is a practicing Catholic whose search for the truth leads him to confront persecution and violence in the name of God - today and in the Church's past. He discovers a terrible legacy that reverberates across the centuries; from the Emperor Constantine's vision of the cross as a sword and symbol of power, to the rise of genocidal anti-Semitism, to modern-day wars and conflicts sparked by religious extremism. At its heart, "Constantine's Sword" is a detective story, as Carroll journeys both into his own past - where he comes to terms with his father's role as a three-star General in the U.S. Air Force preparing for nuclear war - and into the wider world, where he uncov
DocumentaryIs Henry Kissinger, Nobel Laureate and the most famous diplomat of his generation, also a war criminal? Provoked by the Christopher Hitchens book (The Trial of Henry Kissinger, Verso, 2001), filmmakers Eugene Jarecki and Alex Gibney construct a documentary that is both brilliant legal brief and chilling psycho-drama. Confronting the charges that Kissinger undermined LBJ’s Vietnam peace talks (in order that Nixon be elected), engineered the secret bombing of Cambodia, orchestrated the coup that toppled Chilean President Allende, and approved Indonesia’s use of U.S. arms to massacre 100,000 East Timorese, The Trials of Henry Kissinger explores how a young boy who fled Nazi Germany grew up to become one of the most powerful men in U.S. history. The Trials of Henry Kissinger also tackles the question of whether principles of international law applied by Americans to their enemies are also applicable to Americans ¾ or whether such laws are only written for the losers of conflicts. The
DramaJordan (Lily Hall), a 20 year old lesbian athletic university student has added another extracurricular activity to her over-scheduled life—seducing her tutor, Angie (Christina Hallett), while doing research work for Angie’s partner Cameron (Andrew Curry), who is also Jordan's professor. Bi best friend Lucas (Kevin Dee) teases her that she’s an over-achiever, but not even Jordan can keep all these balls in the air indefinitely. The film is set to a propulsive pop beat, while the sparse dialogue and alternately meditative and frenetic editing captures the college experience, where everything seems possible but the plethora of choices becomes its own kind of burden. As the rounds of study, swimming, clubbing, and sex speed faster and faster, Jordan has to make a decision about what she wants out of life—before the decision is made for her.
DocumentaryWhile debate rages on about Heavy Metal and its merits as a musical genre, most commentators agree that Heavy Metal kicked off in the 1960s with the blues-based rock of bands such as Led Zeppelin, Black Sabbath and Deep Purple. The evolution continued with harder rocking British bands Judas Priest and Motorhead, and the more punk-influenced Iron Maiden and Def Leppard. Over in America, Aerosmith, Alice Cooper and Kiss were strapping on the high heels and layering on the make up. The really theatrical era of Heavy Metal was embraced in the 1980s with bands like Motley Crue, and bands like Megadeth and Metallica developed yet another sub-genre: Thrash Metal. Following that we’ve seen the evolution of Progressive Metal, Speed Metal, Doom Metal, Black Metal, Gothic Metal, Nu Metal and Viking Metal to name a few... Now celebrating more than 40 years of independence from the musical mainstream, the ‘Elder Statesmen’ of Heavy Metal share their thoughts on life, love, the music, the band

He established the Tibetan government in northern India in 1959, but has been a voice for peace all over the world, not just within his own land.

ClassicsFeaturing never-before-seen film footage of Adolf Hitler and the Nazi regime, The Architecture of Doom captures the inner workings of the Third Reich and illuminates the Nazi aesthetic in art, architecture and popular culture. From Nazi party rallies to the final days inside Hitler's bunker, this sensational film shows how Adolf Hitler rose from being a failed artist to creating a world of ponderous kitsch and horrifying terror. Hitler worshipped ancient Rome and Greece, and dreamed of a new Golden Age of classical art and monumental architecture, populated by beautiful, patriotic Aryans. "Degenerate" artists and "inferior" races had no place in his lurid fantasy. As this riveting film shows, the Nazis went from banning the art of modernists like Picasso to forced euthanasia of the retarded and sick, and finally to the persecution of homosexuals and the extermination of Jews.
