This faithful adaptation of Herman Melville’s classic follows a young accounting clerk in 1970’s London rebelling against his employer by responding to demands to do work by saying “I prefer not to.” This is carried on ad absurdum until the office is in chaos and the other employees must do Bartleby’s work. His boss is unable to bring himself to fire Bartleby, which is the crux of the film.


The late Peter Ustinov hosts this haunting 1980 documentary exploring the world’s nuclear weaponry and the fragile system that deters either side from initiating the first nuclear strike. Although the world’s political climate has mellowed since the cold war era, Nuclear Nightmares takes the viewer back in time to gain a perspective of what it was like to live under a very real nuclear threat.


Is our First Amendment right as protected as we think? Telling the story of the Hollywood 10, this classic documentary explores how the House Un-American Activities Committee was able to summon before it American citizens of the motion picture industry and interrogate them about their political affiliations and beliefs. Featuring interviews with Dalton Trumbo and other prominent screenwriters.


The enchanting Heather Graham stars as Georgina Salt in this uplifting and funny story about a young woman’s desire to become a mother against all odds. Graham is paired with Tom Ellis as her unlikely mate, Zak, whose views on parenting are quite contrary to Georgina’s. Shortly after determining that single life seems to suit her for the time being, Georgina receives a startling surprise.

This film is a fictional recounting of the final interrogation and last days of Rudolph Ferdinand Hoss, the longstanding commandant of the Auschwitz concentration camp during World War 2 where Hoss was later executed for his crimes against humanity. This film is notable in the fact that for the first time, an Israeli film director (Erez Pery) gives voice to the perpetrator.


Diagnosed with a rare form of Parkinson’s Disease, ailing theatrical legend Sir Michael Gifford (Brian Cox) is terminally ill but determined not to let his health affliction stand in the way of what could be his final on-stage appearance – a ceremony by the Critics’ Guild of Great Britain honoring him with a lifetime achievement award.

W. Pittman and Kelly Daniela Norris bring to this story.” Variety’s Dennis Harvey notes “There’s an air of authenticity as well as a pleasingly laid-back yet substantive narrative engagement to this polished effort.View entire review here.

Diagnosed with a rare form of Parkinson’s Disease, ailing theatrical legend Sir Michael Gifford (Brian Cox) is terminally ill. He’s also foul-mouthed, irascible, and highly resistant to the concept of allowing a full time care giver into his home. Sir Michael’s daughter Sophia (Emilia Fox) reluctantly brings in Dorottya, an aspiring Hungarian actress herself in need of a day job, who secretly hopes that this opportunity to care for Sir Michael will propel her own career onstage and endures his unbearable temperament. Their relationship gradually improves as Dorottya’s warming personality and knowledge of theatre begins to grow on the old lion. When Sir Michael is offered a Lifetime Achievement Award by the Great Britain Critcs’ Guild, the increasingly contentious relationship between Dorottya, Sophia and Milly begins to climax as Dorottya encourages Michael to accept the award in person. The real drama begins to unfold when Sir Michael learns of his scheming daughter’s plans to remove Dorottya from his life, from whom he has regained a sense of meaning and vigor. Directed by János Edelényi
