A Guide to Recognizing Your Saints Highly recommended. Incredible directorial debut, amazing cast, compelling story. Best film I've seen in the last 12 months. Currently on Comcast On Demand under the Sundance Channel.
Even Cowgirls Get the Blues. Watched it because it showed up On Demand 1 day after I looked up Lorraine Bracco on imdb and figured it was fate. I may have been wrong. Great cast, but poorly done. Save yourself the trouble.
Dig!. Documentary that follows two bands on opposite paths. The upward rise of the less talented but more sane Dandy Warhols set a fitting backdrop against the death spiral of amazingly talented and self-destructive Anton Newcomb and his Brian Jonestown Massacre. Highly recommended. Great music.
The Bridge. Compelling documentary. Eric Steel filmed the Golden Gate Bridge from two locations for all of 2004, and then followed up with stories about the people who attempted and committed suicide from the bridge during that period. Not particularly uplifting but very compelling. I'll recommend it, but caution that its likely to be watched at an emotional expense.
