Brink, The Brink, The When Steve Bannon left his position as White House chief strategist less than a week after the Charlottesville "Unite the Right" rally in August 2017, he was already a notorious figure in Trump’s inner circle, and for bringing a far-right ideology into the highest echelons of American politics. Unconstrained by an official post — though some say he still has a direct line to the White House — he became free to peddle influence as a perceived kingmaker, turning his controversial brand of nationalism into a global movement. THE BRINK follows Bannon through the 2018 mid-term elections in the United States, shedding light on his efforts to mobilize and unify far-right parties in order to win seats in the May 2019 European Parliamentary elections. To maintain his power and influence, the former Goldman Sachs banker and media investor reinvents himself — as he has many times before — this time as the self-appointed leader of a global populist movement. Keen manipulator of the press and gifted self-promoter, Bannon continues to draw headlines and protests wherever he goes, feeding the powerful myth on which his survival relies.

There’s a caddish banker (Xavier Beauvois) who, like many of her lovers, happens to be married; a handsome actor (Nicolas Duvauchelle) who’s working through his own hang-ups; and a sensitive fellow artist (Alex Descas) who’s skittish about commitment. What reads like a standard romantic comedy premise is transformed, in the hands of master filmmaker Denis, into something altogether deeper, more poignant, and perceptive about the profound mysteries of love.

Journey, The Journey, The The Journey is the gripping account of how two men from opposite sides of the political spectrum came together to change the course of history. In 2006, amidst the ongoing, decades-long conflict in Northern Ireland, representatives from the two warring factions meet for negotiations. In one corner is Ian Paisley (Timothy Spall), the deeply conservative British loyalist; in the other is Martin McGuinness (Colm Meaney), a former Irish Republican Army leader who has devoted his life to the cause of Irish reunification. Opposites in every way, the two men at first seem to have little chance of ever finding common ground. But over the course of an impromptu, detour-filled car ride through the Scottish countryside, each begins to see the other less as an enemy, and more as an individual—a breakthrough that promises to at last bring peace to the troubled region. Driven by two virtuoso central performances, The Journey is a more-relevant-than-ever reminder of how simple humanity can overcome political division. John Hurt costars.

BOYHOOD is both a nostalgic time capsule of the recent past and an ode to growing up and parenting. It's impossible to watch Mason and his family without thinking about our own journey.

Gerhard Richter Painting Gerhard Richter Painting The title says it all. Corinna Belz's documentary is an unprecedented and oddly dangerous journey into the studios of Gerhard Richter, widely considered among the world's most important living painters.

His career has been a high-wire balancing act between eye-popping, colourful abstractions -- seen in start-to-finish construction throughout much of the film -- and enormously famous photorealist portraiture. He has also been an influential essayist on the subject of art-making and its place in the world.

Previously managed by his bitter rival Don Revie, and on the back of their most successful period ever as a football club, Leeds was perceived by many to represent a new aggressive and cynical style of football - an anathema to the principled yet flamboyant Brian Clough, who had achieved astonishing success as manager of Hartlepool and Derby County building teams in his own vision with trusty lieutenant Peter Taylor. Taking the Leeds job without Taylor by his side, with a changing room full of what in his mind were still Don’s boys, would lead to an unheralded examination of Clough’s belligerence and brilliance over 44 days.

Baghead Baghead While the Duplass Brothers were shooting their last feature film The Puffy Chair, a crew member raised the question “what’s the scariest thing you can think of?” Someone immediately said “a guy with a bag on his head staring into your window.” Some agreed, but some thought it was downright ridiculous and, if anything, funny (but definitely not scary). Thus, BAGHEAD was born, an attempt to take the absurdly low-concept idea of a “guy with a bag on his head” and make a funny, truthful, endearing film that, maybe, just maybe, was a little bit scary, too.

S.O.P. Standard Operating Procedure S.O.P. Standard Operating Procedure Errol Morris, Academy Award® winning documentary filmmaker, trains his camera on the abuse at the Abu Ghraib prison, the photographs that exposed the scandal and the procedures and legal opinions that made it possible. After two-plus years of investigation, yielding a million and a half words of interview transcript, thousands of pages of unredacted reports, and hundreds of photographs, Morris discovers that "Abu Ghraib photographs serve as both an expose and a coverup. An expose,because the photographs offer us a glimpse of the horror of Abu Ghraib; and a coverup because they convinced journalists and readers they had seen everything, that there was no need to look further." While exposing the previously unpublicized scope of the abuse Morris tries to answer the essential and unresolved question, "how could American values become so compromised that Abu Ghraib and the subsequent coverup-could happen?"

Their circle includes: Sol LeWitt, Christo and Jeanne-Claude, Richard Tuttle, Chuck Close, Robert Mangold, Sylvia Plimack Mangold, Lynda Benglis, Pat Steir,and Lucio Pozzi.

Oscar-winner Philip Seymour Hoffman plays Andy, an overextended broker who lures his younger brother, Hank (Ethan Hawke), into a larcenous scheme: the pair will rob a suburban mom-and-pop jewelry store that appears to be the quintessential easy target. The problem is, the store owners are Andy and Hank’s actual mom and pop and, when the seemingly perfect crime goes awry, the damage lands right at their doorstep. Oscar-winner Marisa Tomei plays Hoffman’s trophy wife, who is having a clandestine affair with Hawke, and the stellar cast also includes Albert Finney as the family patriarch who pursues justice at all costs, completely unaware that the culprits he is hunting are his own sons.

Breakfast with Scot Breakfast with Scot Adapted from the novel by Michael Downing, BREAKFAST WITH SCOT is a touching and very contemporary comedy that tells the story of an "alternative" family finding its feet. Eric (Tom Cavanagh) lives for all things hockey. At 36, he's managed to turn his stint playing for the Toronto Maple Leafs into a full-time gig commentating for sports TV. He's living the dream! But when Eric's boyfriend Sam (Ben Shenkman) announces that they're to become temporary guardians of a young boy, Eric's comfortable world shatters. Enter Scot (Noah Bernett) -- a recently orphaned, sweet, vulnerable, yet oddly resilient kid, who also happens to be a swishy 11 year-old sissy-of-a-boy -- and Eric's mirror opposite. Freaked out by Scot's "joie de vivre", Eric and Sam gently nudge Scot away from scented hand cream, excessive twirling, and kissing the school bully, towards a more "acceptable" pastime - hockey. But after Scot's disastrous first game, Eric begins to rethink the compromises he's made.

Away from Her Away from Her "Away From Her" is the lyrical screenplay adaptation of celebrated author Alice Munro's short story "The Bear Came Over the Mountain." "Away From Her" is a beautifully moving love story that deals with memory and the circuitous, unnamable paths of a long marriage. Married for 50 years, Grant (Gordon Pinsent) and Fiona's (Julie Christie) commitment to each other appears unwavering, and their everyday life is full of tenderness and humour. This serenity is broken only by the occasional, carefully restrained reference to the past, giving a sense that this marriage may not always have been such a fairy tale. This tendency of Fiona's to make such references, along with her increasingly evident memory loss, creates a tension that is usually brushed off casually by both of them. As the lapses become more obvious and dramatic, it is no longer possible for either of them to ignore the fact that Fiona is suffering from Alzheimer's disease.

American Hardcore American Hardcore Generally unheralded at the time, the early-80s Hardcore Punk Rock scene gave birth to much of the rock music and culture that followed. There would be no Nirvana, Beastie Boys or Red Hot Chili Peppers were it not for Hardcore pioneers such as Black Flag, Bad Brains and Minor Threat. Hardcore was more than music — it was a social movement created by Reagan-era misfit kids. The participants constituted a tribe unto themselves — some finding a voice, others an escape in the hard-edged music; some sought a better world, others were just angry and wanted to raise hell. AMERICAN HARDCORE traces this lost subculture, from its early roots to its extinction. The film is based on Steven's book AMERICAN HARDCORE: A Tribal History (Feral House), which detailed the scene's rise and fall, and came out in 2001.

Sketches of Frank Gehry Sketches of Frank Gehry "Sketches of Frank Gehry" about the acclaimed architect, Frank O. Gehry, is director Sydney Pollack's first feature length documentary. The two men have been friends for many years, and Pollack completed the film over a period of five years, starting in 2000. Frank Gehry loves to sketch; it is the beginning of his architectural process. And it is his love of the sketch that gave Pollack his first clues to the style of this documentary film. Beginning with Gehry’s own original sketches for each major project, the film explores Gehry’s process of turning these abstract drawings, first into tangible, three-dimensional models, often made simply of cardboard and scotch tape, then into finished buildings of titanium and glass, concrete and steel, wood and stone. The dialogue between Pollack and Gehry, as intimate as that of any two friends of long standing, courses like a continuous melodic line through the film.

Why We Fight Why We Fight "Why We Fight," the film by Eugene Jarecki which won the Grand Jury Prize at the 2005 Sundance Film Festival, is an unflinching look at the anatomy of the American war machine, weaving unforgettable personal stories with commentary by a "who’s who" of military and beltway insiders. Featuring John McCain, Gore Vidal, William Kristol, Chalmers Johnson, Richard Perle and others, ‘Why We Fight’ launches a bipartisan inquiry into the workings of the military industrial complex and the rise of the American Empire. Inspired by Dwight Eisenhower’s legendary farewell speech (in which he coined the phrase "military industrial complex"), filmmaker Jarecki ("The Trials of Henry Kissinger") surveys the scorched landscape of a half-century’s military adventures, asking how - and telling why - a nation of, by, and for the people has become the savings-and-loan of a system whose survival depends on a state of constant war.

Breakfast on Pluto Breakfast on Pluto Breakfast on Pluto tells the wild, rollicking story of Patrick "Kitten" Braden, a catty, beleaguered Irish transvestite who becomes involved with the Irish Republican Army while on a quest to reunite with his mother. Told in thirty-six short chapters, this delirious frenzy is the second collaboration between Neil Jordan and author and screenwriter Patrick McCabe, who gave us the equally inventive and scatalogical The Butcher Boy. Outrageous star Cillian Murphy shines as the "svelte gamine" Kitten, supported by the venerable Liam Neeson as a sympathetic local priest and Jordan regular Stephen Rea in an eccentric cameo appearance.

Lives of Others, The Lives of Others, The East Berlin, November 1984. Five years before its downfall, the former East-German government ensured its claim to power with a ruthless system of control and surveillance. Party-loyalist Captain Gerd Wiesler hopes to boost his career when given the job of collecting evidence against the playwright Georg Dreyman and his girlfriend, the celebrated theater actress Christa-Maria Sieland. After all, the “operation” is backed by the highest political circles. What he didn’t anticipate, however, was that submerging oneself into the world of the target also changes the surveillance agent. The immersion in The Lives of Others – in love, literature, free thinking and speech – makes Wiesler acutely aware of the meagerness of his own existence and opens to him a completely new way of life which he has ever more trouble resisting. But the system, once started, cannot be stopped. A dangerous game has begun...

Mario Van Peebles sharply observes his father Melvin’s (played by Mario) struggles to raise money to fund Sweet Sweetback’s Baadasssss Song (1971) under the guise of creating a black porno film. Melvin ducked creditors, the unions and had to bail out his camera crew after they were arrested because a white cop decided a bunch of Negroes and hippies couldn’t have come by that camera equipment honestly. Despite death threats and temporarily losing sight in one eye, Melvin managed to whip into shape a rag-tag, multi-racial crew and finish the film. The film had a winning formula - a hip, empowered black lead and a driving, energetic soundtrack with music from the then up-and-coming band Earth Wind and Fire. Maurice White of Earth Wind and Fire also contributes new music to the new film. Before the Wright Brothers, there was no manned flight. Before Melvin Van Peebles, there were no films that would dare depict a brother standing up to the "man" and living to tell about.

Under the vigilant eyes of Old Monk, Child Monk learns a hard lesson about the nature of sorrow when some of his childish games turn cruel. In the intensity and lushness of summer, the monk, now a young man, experiences the power of lust, a desire that will ultimately lead him, as an adult, to dark deeds. With winter, strikingly set on the ice and snow-covered lake, the man atones for his past actions, and spring starts the cycle anew… With an extraordinary attention to visual details, such as using a different animal (dog, rooster, cat, snake) as a motif for each section, writer/director/editor KIM Ki-duk has crafted a totally original yet universal story about the human spirit.

Ayurveda: Art of Being Ayurveda: Art of Being Ayurveda is probably the world's oldest continually practiced holistic healthcare system, a means to a more balanced state of mental and physical wellbeing. The film follows various Indian practitioners of this revitalized discipline as they apply the ancient doctrines. Originating in India and then spreading to Egypt, Greece, Rome, Tibet, China, Russia and Japan, Ayurveda is estimated to be between 2500 and 5000 years old. It is the Science of Life, specifically referring to harmonious integration of the body, mind, senses and spirit, an art of living, an art of being. Some Ayurveda and Ayurvedic formulas did make it to the West and Far East, including one for haircare using fruit roducts from which the word "shampoo" originated. European surgeons started to practice Indian techniques to repair damage to the face from battle, thus fostering the discipline we call plastic surgery. Ayurveda has for centuries affected our existence regardless of where we live.

However, despite a massive overdose of morphine, Gavin stays alive. Charlie ends up slipping a plastic bag over Gavin's head and suffocating him. This is hardly the dignified death that they had all planned - but the beginning of an emotional rollercoaster ride, which takes Charlie and Anna through the highs and lows of the grief experience - from illicit affairs and left over morphine to devastating accusations and unwitting betrayals.
