Perrier's Bounty (2010)
Starring: Cillian Murphy,Brendan Gleeson,Jim Broadbent,Jodie Whittaker,Michael McElhatton
An ordinary guy gets himself in an extraordinary amount of trouble in this blend of comedy and action from director Ian Fitzgibbon. Michael McCrea (Cillian Murphy) is a regular guy who isn't especially good with money, which leads him to borrow some money from Perrier (Brendan Gleeson), a local loan shark and strong-arm man. Unfortunately, Michael isn't able to pay back the money on schedule, and he quickly learns that Perrier is one man you don't want angry; now there's a price on Michael's head and he needs to pay his debt quickly if he wants to live. Michael accepts a proposal from a small-time hood to do a quick breaking-and-entering job in exchange for part of the loot, but things go very wrong and somehow the neighbor girl Michael is sweet on, Brenda (Jodie Whittaker), ends up shooting someone. Now Michael is on the run from two sets of crooks, has a dead body to deal with, must find an alibi for Brenda, and has to mend fences with his crusty father (Jim Broadbent) before his dad is willing to help. Perrier's Bounty was an official selection at the 2009 Toronto International Film Festival.
Leonard Cohen Live at the Isle of Wight 1970 (2010)
Starring: Leonard Cohen
Directed by Academy Award-winning filmmaker Murray Lerner, and with a running time of just over 60 minutes, LEONARD COHEN LIVE AT THE ISLE OF WIGHT 1970 presents for the first time Cohen's early morning performance in front of 600,000 people at this fabled UK concert. Interwoven with the live footage are brand-new interviews with fellow festival performers Joan Baez, Judy Collins, Bob Johnston and Kris Kristofferson. Nearly 40 summers ago on August 31, 1970, 35-year-old Leonard Cohen was awakened at 2 a.m. from a nap in his trailer and brought onstage to perform with his band at the third annual Isle Of Wight music festival. The audience was in a fiery and frenzied mood, after turning the festival into a political arena, trampling the fences, setting fire to structures and equipment - and stoked by the most incendiary performance of Jimi Hendrix's career, less than three weeks before his death. As Cohen followed Hendrix's set, onlookers and fellow festival headliners Joan Baez, Kris Kristofferson, Judy Collins and others stood offstage in awe as the Canadian singer-songwriter quietly tamed the crowd. Lerner was able to capture Cohen's performance. The film is a fascinating and timely portrait of the artist as a young man, just three years into his recording career (though he was already a published poet and novelist for 15 years). As he mesmerizes the Isle of Wight audience, Cohen intersperses a baker's dozen songs with tales both real and apocryphal, as well as a handful of his poems. LEONARD COHEN LIVE AT THE ISLE OF WIGHT 1970 captures the set as performed by Cohen and his backup band: Bob Johnston (Cohen's Nashville-based Columbia A&R staff producer), and Nashville musicians Charlie Daniels (electric bass, fiddle), Ron Cornelius (lead guitar), and Elkin 'Bubba' Fowler (bass, banjo). They were joined by backup singers Corlynn Hanney, Susan Musmanno, and Donna Washburn. Lerner is known for his work on Festival!, his Oscar-nominated 1969 documentary of the Newport Folk Festivals. His work on that film spurred the Isle of Wight promoters to bring him aboard and document their festival - whose violence turned it into the last of the three original Isle of Wight festivals of 1968, 1969, and 1970. (Bob Dylan put the festival on the map when he performed there in 1968, his first public performance since recovering from his fabled motorcycle crash of 1966.) Lerner's Isle of Wight footage went unfunded for decades until 1995, when the multi-artist Message to Love (with its brief snippet of Cohen singing "Suzanne") was finally issued on video. Since then, Lerner's documentary-style Isle of Wight videos on the 1970 performances by Miles Davis, The Who, and Jimi Hendrix have inspired a new generation of music fans. In 1980, Lerner's From Mao to Mozart: Isaac Stern in China won an Academy Award for Best Documentary Feature. --© Laemmle
The Other Woman (2011)
Starring: Natalie Portman, Lisa Kudrow, Scott Cohen
Natalie Portman (BLACK SWAN, STAR WARS) lights up the screen in this frank, funny, and heart-wrenching adaptation of bestselling author Ayelet Waldman's novel about life, loss, and family, "LOVE AND OTHER IMPOSSIBLE PURSUITS." Emilia (Portman) is a Harvard law school graduate and a newlywed, having just married Jack (Scott Cohen, THE UNDERSTUDY), a high-powered New York lawyer, who was her boss - and married - when she began working at his law firm. Unfortunately, her life takes an unexpected turn when Jack and Emilia lose their newborn daughter. Emilia struggles through her grief to connect with her new stepson William (Charlie Tahan, I AM LEGEND), while also trying to overcome a long-standing rift in her relationship with her father caused by his own infidelity. But perhaps the most difficult obstacle of all for Emilia is trying to cope with the constant interferences of her husband's angry, jealous ex-wife, Carolyn (Lisa Kudrow, FRIENDS, ANALYZE THIS). Ultimately, Emilia's and Charlie's playful and sometimes tender exchanges help Emilia to open her heart. Can Emilia rediscover her own capacity for love in time to salvage her failing marriage, mend fences with her parents and build a family from the wreckage? Directed by Don Roos (THE OPPOSITE OF SEX) from his own screenplay, this tearful, terrific tale proves that even with a pursuit like love, nothing is impossible... -- (C) IFC Films
Gut Renovation (2013)
Starring: Munesh Bissessar,Cathy Diamond,Pete Friedrich,Mimi Hassimi,Amy Jenkins
Welcome to Williamsburg, New York's new bohemia. Or is it? In the late 1980s artists moved into this working class neighborhood, populated by small manufacturers, Polish butchers, and auto repair shops, just across the East River. SoHo took 30 years to change from an artists' bohemia to an art gallery hotspot, to an outdoor shopping mall; Williamsburg's demise has been much faster, due in part to a 2005 zoning law change. With a winning combination of wit, anger, and political savvy, filmmaker Su Friedrich, and co-writer Cathy Quinlan, record how the neighborhood has changed from when they arrived in 1989 to the rich-hipster haven it has become. Friedrich casts a jaundiced eye on the sleek granite kitchen counters featured at the condo openings she attends; she paints graffiti on construction fences ("Artists Used To Live Here") and comments wryly on her new neighbors ("What's with all the fancy dogs?"). She gives up mapping a all new construction with building number 173. For anyone who has ever moved to an affordable neighborhood only to find that gentrification renders it unaffordable - this is the movie for you. (c) Outcast Films

It won't be easy, but then again if it were, it wouldn't be any fun either. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

Moving to Mars (2010)
The Road to Guantanamo co-director Mat Whitecross explores the politics of persecution by exposing the plight of the Karen people, who were uprooted from their lives following the 1962 military coup in Burma, and who are still searching for a place to call home. In 2009, approximately 150,000 Karen people were residing in Thai refugee camps near the Burmese border. By following two Karen families as they attempt to resettle in Sheffield, England, Whitecross contrasts life in the camps - where community was a crucial component of living - with life in the suburbs - where good fences make good neighbors. Though at first the culture shock sends them reeling, former farmer Jo-Kae and hard-working engineer Thaw Htoo do their best to land on their feet, and build new lives for their families. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi
