One hundred and fifty thousand dollars, ready for the taking. It's too much to resist for Earl Slater, a bigoted ex-con slumming through life with a patronizing girlfriend, an obliging neighbor and zero expectations. He agrees to be part of a bank job planned by former cop Burke. Until, that is, he finds out one of his partners will be a black man. Earl's desperate need for cash, however, leads him to reconsider. For the job only, he'll put his racism aside ... until moments away from the score, hatred erupts.

The Russian nobleman Fedor Vasilʹevich Protasov cannot come to terms with the hypocrisy surrounding him, but is powerless to fight against it. He begins to drink, leaves home, and gradually declines. Protasov's behavior promotes his wife Liza's increasing closeness with Viktor Karenin, a longtime friend of the family. Fedor, not being able to endure the lying and humiliation involved in the forthcoming divorce trial, stages a suicide, and apparently leaves the life of his family forever. Only thanks to an unfortunate occurence does it become known that Fedor Protasov is alive. Liza, who had made her peace with her husband's death and married Karenin, is summoned to court on the accusation of bigamy. In order to end the stupid and false comedy of the trial, and spare innocent people from dishonor, Protasov shoots himself.

"In 16th-century Russia in the grip of chaos, Ivan the Terrible strongly believes he is vested with a holy mission. Believing he can understand and interpret the signs, he sees the Last Judgment approaching. He establishes absolute power, cruelly destroying anyone who gets in his way. During this reign of terror, Philip, the superior of the monastery on the Solovetsky Islands, a great scholar and Ivan's close friend, dares to oppose the sovereign's mystical tyranny. What follows is a clash between two completely opposite visions of the world, smashing morality and justice, God and men. A grand-scale film with excellent leading roles by Mamonov and Yankovsky. An allegory of Stalinist Russia"--Written by Warsaw Film Festival and viewed in IMDB.

Based on real-life events, the film tells the story of Dublin journalist Veronica Guerin, a relentless crime reporter for The Sunday Independent during the early '90s. In 1994, Guerin--who had previously been reporting corporate corruption and church scandals--turned her attention to Ireland's increasing drug problem. Her investigations, however, brought her to the attention of Dublin's crime underworld; the deeper she dug, the more danger she found herself in. Guerin's violent murder in 1996 led to a revision of Ireland's laws and the creation of the Criminal Assets Bureau, allowing the government to seize dealer assets. After Guerin's death and the resultant investigations and arrests, drug crimes in Ireland dropped by fifty percent.

Cinema's exiles : from Hitler to Hollywood
a co-production of Film Odyssey, Inc. and Turner Entertainment Co. in association with the Museum of Film and Television, Berlin, L'Institut national de l'audiovisuel, and France 3 Paris ; directed, written, and produced by Karen Thomas
Burbank, CA : Warner Home Video, [2016]
When Adolf Hitler became Chancellor of Germany in 1933, one of his first actions was to ban Jews from working in that country's film industry, praised as the most creative cinema in the world. Men and women who had made landmarks of movie history fled their homeland in the ensuing months and years. Many went to Hollywood. This compelling documentary traces the experiences of the exiles who took refuge in Hollywood, and examines their impact on both the German and the American cinemas. In Germany they had created ground-breaking pictures such as The Cabinet Of Dr Who, Caligari, The Blue Angel and M-The Murderers Among Us. In Hollywood, their influence ranged from the horror genre and film noir, to comedy and drama. With their lush compositions, they changed the role of music in the motion picture. They even made Westerns. Included amongst more than 800 film professionals who escaped to Hollywood in the years between 1933 and 1939 were actors Felix Bressart, Hedy Lamarr and Peter Lorre; directors Fritz Land, Henry Koster, Billy Wilder and Fred Zinnerman ; composers Frederick Hollander, Hans Salter and Franz Waxman and cinematographer Rudy Mate. Not every exile found success in Hollywood. Most never regained the fame they had known in Europe.
