  • Release Year: 2013
  • Runtime: 89 minutes
  • Directed By: Nicholas Wrathall

Anchored by intimate, one-on-one interviews with the man himself, Nicholas Wrathall’s new documentary is a fascinating and wholly entertaining tribute to the iconic Gore Vidal.

GREETINGS FROM TIM BUCKLEY

  • Release Year: 2012
  • Runtime: 100 minutes
  • Directed By: Daniel Algrant
  • Country: USA
“Like father, like son” is a demanding expression for someone who never knew his dad. When young Jeff Buckley (Penn Badgley) is asked to participate in a tribute concert for his late musician father Tim, music opens his eyes to the artistic legacy that he is destined to follow. Imogen Poots co-stars in this quiet and powerful tribute to those legends sustained by admiration, love and, in this case, beautiful music. | Read More

GUARD

  • Release Year: 2011
  • Runtime: 96 minutes
  • Directed By: John Michael McDonagh
  • Country: Ireland
Curmudgeonly small-town sergeant Gerry Boyle (Brendan Gleeson, In Bruges) has a confrontational personality, a subversive sense of humor, a dying mother, a fondness for prostitutes, and absolutely no desire whatsoever to work with a straight-laced FBI agent (Don Cheadle) in from the States on a cocaine-smuggling case. Venerable Irish character actor Gleeson fills his acid-tongued cop with an irreplaceable charm, and his banter with Cheadle will leave you in stitches. | Read More

HEADSHOT

  • Release Year: 2011
  • Runtime: 105 minutes
  • Directed By: Pen-ek Ratanaruang
  • Country: France and Thailand
A return to the crime genre for celebrated Thai auteur Pen-ek Ratanaruang (6ixtynin9, Last Life in the Universe), Headshot is a noir-laced thriller centered on Tul, a hit man who is shot in the head and wakes up to find that he sees everything upside down. Working backwards (and often upside down) to tell a brooding and complex tale of underworld double dealings, this is an unexpected and artful take on the action thriller from a genre master. | Read More

Set in 19th-century London at the peak of Victorian prudishness, this racy romantic comedy tells the surprising story of the birth of the electro-mechanical vibrator. A progressive young doctor (Hugh Dancy, Adam) has his hands full relieving the city's affluent society women of their melancholy, until an accidental discovery electrifies their lives forever—and sends sparks flying between him and a feminist rabble-rouser (Maggie Gyllenhaal). | Read More
