Roger & Me

Voted Best Documentary of the year by The National Board of Review, The National Society of Film Critics, The New York Film Critics Circle, and the Los Angeles Film Critics Circle, this is a highly personal, wryly humorous look at the closing of several General Motors plants in Flint, Michigan, the hometown of filmmaker Michael Moore (Emmy-nominee for “TV Nation”), which resulted in the elimination of 35,000 jobs. Armed with a razor-sharp wit, compassion and more than a little chutzpah, Moore offers his perceptions of what went wrong in Flint, and chronicles his much-thwarted efforts to meet face-to-face with the big man himself, GM chairman Roger Smith. Michael Moore’s controversial but popular film has been included in numerous 10-Best Lists for 1989. The New York Times describes it as “rollicking… witty… leaving the audience roaring with laughter!” MPAA Rating: R 1989 Warner Bros. Entertainment Inc.

George Harrison: All Things Pass

George Harrison was an English guitarist, singer, songwriter, and music and film producer who initially achieved international fame as the lead guitarist of the Beatles, but went on to sell millions of critically acclaimed solo records.
Harrison was referred to as the quiet one of the Beatles, often in the shadow of John Lennon and Paul McCartney. However, he later acquired the respect of critics world wide and is now considered to be on the same level – if not surpassing – Lennon and McCartney as a song writer, a result of creating songs such as ‘Here Comes the Sun’ and ‘While My Guitar Gently Weeps’. Rolling Stone magazine even ranked him number 11 on their list of the “100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time”, and he is a two-time Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee.With interviews with George Martin and one of Harrison’s school friends, this documentary will delve into his life – from his rise to fame, to his struggles with the law, and finally to his brutal stabbing and tragic struggle with cancer.
