BLACK DYNAMITE EXPLODES ON YAHOO

September 28, 2009

black dynamite

BLACK DYNAMITE, opening at the Angelika Film Center NY on October 16th, recently hit the #5 spot on Yahoo! Movies most watched trailers. From the director of THE LAST BANDIT, BLACK DYNAMITE is a film to â??â?¦delight both discriminating fans of the blaxploitation tradition and ordinary lovers of goofy, in-ya-face thrillsâ? (Variety). When â??The Manâ? murders his brother, pumps heroin into local orphanages and floods the ghetto with adulterated malt liquor, Black Dynamite (Michael Jai White) is the one hero willing to fight all the way from the blood-soaked city streets to the hallowed halls of the Honky House.

Marion Wins Michaelâ??s Poster

Congratulations to Marion, winner of our most recent giveaway contest at the Angelika in New York! Marion won our framed CAPITALISM: A LOVE STORY poster, signed by the main man himself: Michael Moore.

CAPITALISM: A LOVE STORY
The king of controversy, documentarian Michael Moore (SICKO, FAHRENHEIT 9/11, BOWLING FOR COLUMBINE), says his new â??love storyâ? has it all â?? â??â?¦lust, passion, romance, and 14,000 jobs being eliminated every day.â? A fierce study of the current economic crisis and the hypocrisy of bailout dependent banks, CAPITALISM speaks to Mooreâ??s long term commitment to expose corporate greed and give a voice to those who, in the shuffle, are pushed to the (profit) margins.

NO IMPACT MAN at the Angelika, New York

September 11, 2009

No Impact Man

A year in Manhattan without lattes, elevators or new shoes? Apparently it can be done. NO IMPACT MAN, Colin Beavan and his wife, Michelle Conlin, bravely went where no New Yorker (at least by choice) has gone before. Their film follows this family of three (baby daughter included) for one year on an incredible, funny, honest journey as they go, sometimes reluctantly, to the ends of the earth in attempt to save it.

Friday 9.11 and Saturday 9.12, Colin & Michelle will attend the 7:20pm shows of NO IMPACT MAN to discuss their unusual experiences, their struggles and bonds and the hopeful impact of no impact.

August 3, 2009

The Cove Criticsâ?? Pic NY Times

As reviewed in the New York Times, THE COVE (currently playing at the Angelika New York) “…is a Trojan horse: an exceptionally well-made documentary that unfolds like a spy thriller, complete with bugged hotel rooms, clandestine derring-do and mysterious men in gray flannel suits.”

Following director Louie Psihoyos (whose photos have appeared in many issues of National Geographic) and his team into dangerous waters, THE COVE sets out to uncover the shocking mysteries of a hidden dolphin cove in Japan.
