Bigger, Stronger, Faster*   (2008 - DVD)
Director: Christopher Bell

America is a country that prides itself on the superlative: we are the biggest, strongest, fastest nation in the world. Is it any wonder so many of our heroes are on performance enhancing drugs? Director Chris Bell combines an original mix of pop culture references, a diverse cast from elite athletes to US Congressmen, with an emotional family story to illustrate the image of a "nation on steroids." When you discover that your heroes have all broken the rules, do you follow the rules, or do you follow your heroes?

Chicago 10   (2007 - DVD)
Director: Brett Morgen
Starring: Mark Ruffalo, Jeffrey Wright, Liev Schreiber, Hank Azaria, Nick Nolte, Dylan Baker, James Urbaniak, Roy Scheider, Megan Armitage

From Brett Morgen, director of The Kid Stays in the Picture, comes a highly-stylized and wildly original documentary film chronicling the real-life events surrounding the anti-war protest of the 1968 Democratic National Convention held in Chicago, and the charismatic protest organizers brought to trial by the city. Told through a visually-arresting animation style and a bold use of archival footage and music, Chicago 10 channels yesterday's voices for peace in a manner that speaks peace for today.

Children of Invention   (2009 - DVD)
Director: Tze Chun
Starring: Michael Chen, Cindy Cheung, Crystal Chiu

One of Filmmaker Magazine's "25 New Faces of Independent Film," Tze Chun makes his feature film debut with one of the most-awarded and best-revewed films of the year. Children of Invention, winner of 15 festival awards, is by turns humorous and heartbreaking, a "deeply felt" (Boston Globe), "edge-of-your-seat family drama" (Spout) that's both "powerfully moving and rigorously intelligent" (Boston Phoenix).

After being evicted, hardworking single mom Elaine Cheng (Cindy Cheung) tries to maintain a normal life for her children. Elaine juggles a number of jobs, including working for a questionable pyramid scheme. When Elaine doesn't return home one night, nobody knows the kids are home alone, and they are left to fend for themselves. As the days pass, her son, a budding inventor, realizes he needs to come up with a plan to take care of his little sister.

Referencing both the mortgage meltdown and suburban Ponzi schemes, "the film finds delicate moments of beauty and grace as its child heroes are forced to make their way" (Filmmaker Magazine). Featuring "gifted child actors - off-the-charts cute, refreshingly free of Hollywood precociousness" (LA Weekly), Children of Invention is "a flawless independent film" (Ningin) that "brings to mind the best of the Italian Neo-Realists' work" (Asian Week).

Chrystal   (2004 - DVD)
Director: Ray McKinnon
Starring: Billy Bob Thornton, Lisa Blount, Ray McKinnon, Harry Dean Stanton, Johnny Galecki, Harry J. Lennix

Set in back woods and gritty bar rooms, Chrystal not only transports you into the deep South, but also plugs you into its pulse.

Sixteen years after Joe (Billy Bob Thornton) plunged the family car off the road with his wife Chrystal and their young son inside, Joe returns from prison seeking what was lost on that night. The thing he needs the most is the hardest to ask for - his own redemption. But standing in his way are folks like Snake, a gnarly crank-snorting nemesis, who looks to settle an old score with a bloody fist fight. And Gladys, Chrystal's feisty mother who would like Joe to keep his distance. But sometimes it's impossible to walk away from your past. Lisa Blount is breathtaking as Chrystal, trapped in a body racked with pain from the crash, her eyes serving as windows to another time and place in the sultry Ozark Mountains.

Crumb   (1994 - DVD)
Director: Terry Zwigoff

David Lynch presents one of the most critically acclaimed films ever made. A hilarious and mysterious journey through artistic genius and sexual obsession, Crumb is a wild ride through the mind of R. Crumb - creator of Zap Comix,, Mr. Natural and Fritz the Cat.

"Crumb enters a territory as spooky as it is fascinating...a portrait of the artist as misanthrope, as bad-boy visionary, as joker and sex maniac and, finally, as hero. One of those rare film experiences that has the giddy effect of being a nightmare and a party at the same time. Extraordinary!" (Entertainment Weekly)
