New Releases for August 23rd: Super Sized!

I’m not going to lie folks, this week’s new release list is a doozy. By “doozy,” I don’t mean “Full of awesome titles!” though there is a lot of great stuff here. I mean, “There are so many titles I am faint and dizzy tyring to take in the sheer wonder of them all.” You may want to get a glass of water or a snack before you start, but I promise it will be worth the scroll. Ready? Deep breath…GO!

NEW DOCUMENTARIES

Athens: Mother of Western Civilization—“At an early stage the Athenians adopted a questioning attitude toward life and began to develop new ideas. Thus, about 2,500 years ago, in this city there emerged the idea of democracy, which has exerted a decisive influence on modern history. In this cultural environment, literary forms such as the satire, the drama and the comedy were created…Many of the surviving statues and temples which have been preserved are among the finest examples of classical art. Here the roots and the role models of Western culture are to be found.”

Brave New Voices 2010Brave New Voices 2010 captures the exhilarating verbal adrenaline of the freewheeling Grand Slam Finals showdown between four teams — Denver, Albuquerque, the California Bay Area and New York City — all performing in front of a raucous audience at L.A.’s Saban Theatre. Hosted by rap superstar Common and Image Award-winning actress Rosario Dawson, the talented artists and emerging leaders compete before a celebrity panel of judges who will ultimately crown the Brave New Voices 2010.”

Dear Uncle Adolf: The Germans and Their Fuhrer—“More than any other documents, it is the personal private letters written by the German people to Adolf Hitler that provide the most intimate details of the Third Reich. A treasure of more than 100,000 such letters was recently found, hidden in a secret Russian archive. The uncensored letters, which include declarations of loyalty, love letters and the occasional words of protest, reveal the true feelings of the German people - their hopes, longings and fears.”

Death of Andy Kaufman—“Andy Kaufman, often erroneously cited as a comedian, was the world's first performance artist. He defied genre and categorization to become a true artistic pioneer. Given the absence of separation between his life and his performances, news of his terminal illness in 1984 was treated by many as another of his practical jokes. Then, upon his death from lung cancer months later, the questions and incredulity continued. Now, over twenty years later, his death is still not considered to be an undisputed reality. Many continue to wonder if Andy is alive... and if he is, what is he doing? What does he look like? Will he return to the spotlight? These questions are among those that take the filmmakers out in search of Andy.”

The Devilles—“The DeVilles live a strong and not quite uncomplicated love: a film about the American burlesque stripper Teri Lee Geary (aka Kitten DeVille) and her punk rock singer husband Shawn Geary. Teri and Shawn live in a self imposed time bubble of romance caught somewhere between the 1950s and the 1980s. Their looks, their home and their lifestyle, they all fit the format… The film meets the DeVilles after 25 years of passion and at a time of crisis. The lifestyle and the love all of a sudden have a back edge. How do you break up such a glamorous and consumed life?”

Extraordinary Minds: Jared Diamond—“Jared Diamond is one of America's most celebrated scholars. A professor of Geography and Physiology at the University of California Los Angeles, he is equally renowned for his work in the fields of ecology and evolutionary biology and for his groundbreaking studies of the birds of Papua New Guinea… The ease with which Diamond can encapsulate and explain major patterns in human history from such an original perspective has made him a popular draw for lecture audiences and the international media across the globe.”

Jascha Heifetz: God’s Fiddler—“Not since Paganini had there been such a magician on the violin. In this revealing documentary about the legendary musician we see vintage filmed performance clips of Jascha Heifetz  and learn that he was the first truly modern violin virtuoso, the man about whom Itzhak Perlman said, When I spoke with him, I thought, I can’t believe I’m talking with God . This insightful film portrays an artist for whom only perfection would do, a musical wunderkind who went on to set the standards for nearly a century.”

House on the Rock—A tour of the famous home in Spring Green, Wisconsin that houses all sorts of oddities.

Lt. Dan Band: For the Common Good— “This moving film chronicles the journey of Academy Award nominated actor, Gary Sinise who since 9/11, has vowed to never to forget those who are willing to give all. By following Gary and his "Lt. Dan Band" around the world for nearly two years, including Kuwait and Iraq, we meet many of our brave men and women in uniform, our heroic first responders, their families, and the wonderful citizens that support them.”

Making of the President: The 1960s—“Produced by Oscar® nominee David L. Wolper (Roots), these programs feature [Theodore H.]White’s insightful scripts and rare film footage that reveal the winners and losers in unguarded, behind-the-scenes moments. All the backroom deals, convention-floor drama, and campaign strategy come alive again in three historic races: Kennedy-Nixon, Johnson-Goldwater, and Humphrey-Nixon-Wallace. From preprimary jockeying to the final vote tally, these spellbinding narratives dissect the inner workings of our democracy and trace the path to power.”

Bill Moyers: God & Politics—“In this powerful series, Bill Moyers takes on the two subjects we are all told to avoid in polite company: politics and religion. The veteran journalist explores the role of Christianity in the American political arena by interviewing those whose work puts them squarely at the intersection of the religious and political worlds, from the Christian right in Washington, D.C. to evangelical missions in Central America.”

Nico Escondido’s Grow Like a Pro—Nico Escondido advises you on how to grow one particular plant. If you dry it and smoke it, your jacket will smell like Otto’s. 

Statues By The Road—“Enter the fantastic world of Dr. Evermor as he and Lady Eleanor tour you through their unique sculpture park. Among its thousands of works are the 70-piecce "world's only bird band" and the gigantic forevertron, half a city block long, four stories high,and at 400 tons, the Guinness Book of Records largest recycled-metal sculpture!”

Wrong Side of the Bus—“Sidney Bloch, an internationally recognized professor of psychiatry from Australia, returns to Cape Town, South Africa for his medical school reunion. Sid has suffered from a troubled conscience for forty years and wants to resolve his guilt for colluding with Apartheid - but what will it take to free him from his past?”

…PLENTY MORE MOVIES…

Absent Father—“Abigail (Jessica Kadish) is a typical teenager. When an angel tells her she’s been chosen to have God’s child, her first instinct is to look for a way out. Eventually she abandons her comfortable middle-class home for the streets of Boston, where she hooks up with a group of runaways led by the enigmatic Sultan (JP Quicquaro). But just when a new kind of happiness starts to feel within reach, Abigail suddenly finds herself more alone than ever.”

Accused at 17—“When Bianca finds out her boyfriend cheated on her with Dory, a classmate, she's furious and out for revenge. Bianca and her best friends, Fallyn and Sarah, team up to play a prank on the girl to make her pay. The three lure her to a remote location, intending to abandon her, so she has to walk home alone in the dark. But, when Dory doesn’t show up to school the next day, everyone, including Bianca, starts to worry. It’s not until Dory's dead body is found and Bianca, and her mother go to the police, that this childish prank leads to a more adult outcome -an outcome where one murder may not be enough to silence the truth.”

Battle: New York Day II—“Laura Sommers is hearing voices in her head and consults with a psychiatrist. The therapy is suddenly cut short when New York City is rocked by an alien invasion.

When a sweet-talking Texan (Patrick Breen, Eli Stone, Radio) first arrives on the doorstep of their back-road Midwestern home, his calm, outgoing nature and particular brand of neighborly Christian philosophy seems to be just the remedy the Smith family needs. As the stranger s true motivations come to light, however, he emerges as a cold, driven killer, who thinks he has been sent straight from God to serve punishment upon the family for their past. What follows in this tightly wound and visceral horror/thriller is a desperate game of cat and mouse between the stranger and his prey.”

Out of the ashes and smoke rises something so evil, so monstrous, that the town is forever cursed…”

Little do they know the owner (Dr. Wolfgang Wagner) has concocted a monstrosity in the basement and plans to make the hapless teens the creature's first big meal. This is The Puppet Monster Massacre, a wild and raucous love letter to the monster films of the glorious 1980's!”

The Shaman & Ayahuasca—“Ayahuasca is a entheogentic or psychoactive vine-based plant brew that have been used for healing by shamans for thousands of years. It is widely known throughout South America for its healing and visionary properties that has, in recent years, caught the attention of the Western world…Intrigued by these extraordinary claims, filmmaker Michael Wiese went to the home of Don Jose Campos, an internationally known Peruvian shaman or curandero, to experience first hand the healing and transformational aspects of Ayahuasca.

Accompanied by Erik's brother, Jason (Ed Speleers), they return home, only to find the king dead and the kingdom desolate.
