“Brian Eno: 1971-1977 ‒ The Man Who Fell to Earth” [Documentary] (Video)

Brian Peter George St. John le Baptiste de la Salle Eno ‒ Brian to his friends, Eno to the rest of us ‒ defies easy categorization. Singer, musician, composer, record producer, music theorist, singer, and visual artist covers some of what he does, but he’s probably best known for his early work with Roxy Music, his production duties for U2 and Coldplay, and as one of the principal innovators of ambient music. However he’s pigeonholed, this remarkable visionary remains amongst the most influential individuals ever to have worked in the music industry. “Brian Eno: 1971-1977 ‒ The Man Who Fell to Earth” explores Eno’s life, career, and music of the period, which some view as his golden age…

“Keep the River on Your Right: A Modern Cannibal Tale” [Documentary] (Video)

In 1955, the New York artist and anthropologist Tobias Schneebaum disappeared into the depths of the Peruvian Amazon. He had no guide, no map, and the vague instruction to keep the river on his right. A year later he emerged from the jungle…naked, covered in body paint, and a modern-day cannibal. Forty-five years after his original visit, two filmmakers convince Schneebaum to return to Perú, where he is reunited with the very tribesmen he loved, but who also gave him nightmares for nearly half a century…

Delusional Mind Parasites (Video)

We are spellbound by choice rather than by way of domination. It is we who allow ourselves to be mesmerized, and we who abdicate our own consciousness. Scarcity may be experienced through no fault of one’s own, but enslavement commands our willful ignorance…

“Bruce Lee in His Own Words” (Video)

“When we suddenly awake to the realization that there is no barrier, and never has been, one realizes that one is all things ‒ mountains, rivers, grasses, trees, sun, moon, stars, universe are all oneself. There is no longer a division or barrier between myself and others, no longer any feeling of alienation or fear ‒ there is nothing apart from oneself and therefore nothing to fear. Realizing this results in true compassion. Other people and things are not seen as apart from oneself but, on the contrary, as one’s own body.”
‒Bruce Lee

“Mysteries and Scandals: Groucho Marx” [Documentary] (Video)

“And Everything Is Going Fine” [Documentary] (Video)

“And Everything Is Going Fine” provides an intimate portrait of the late master monologist Spalding Gray, as described by his most critical, irreverent, and insightful biographer: Spalding Gray. Director Steven Soderbergh, who collaborated with Gray on the film “Gray’s Anatomy”, has sifted through rare and revealing footage to construct a riveting final monologue. Though we catch glimpses of Gray’s father, and of his son Forrest, this film remains an inspired one-man show, a bittersweet display of Spalding’s playful and embattled intelligence, and his gift for tracking universal truths by looking himself squarely in the eye…

Sabbatai Zevi, Jacob Frank, and the Cult of Redemption Through Sin (Video)
