    Gun hill road

    • Year Released: 2011
    Gun Hill Road is a 2011 drama film starring Esai Morales. The title of the film derives from the Bronx neighborhood of the same name. Ex-con Enrique returns home after a stint in prison. His wife Angela has had an affair while he was away, and his son Michael is exploring a life as a transsexual, leaving Enrique with decisions to make regarding his family's future. The film has received mixed reviews. Kirk Honeycutt of The Hollywood Reporter said in his review: " In his feature debut, Gun Hill Road, writer-director Rashaad Ernesto Green displays compassion for his characters and an ability to create strong scenes to underscore his thematic concerns. But the story itself is too shopworn especially at Sundance where countless films have presented dysfunctional families where parents and offspring are at odds". Dennis Harvey of Variety similarly said; "script and direction tend to telegraph all events, draining the competently packaged pic of tension, nuance and surprise". Director Rashaad Ernesto Green was nominated for the Grand Jury Prize at the Sundance Film Festival. The subject matter of the movie was noted "for the casualness with which it puts a Hispanic transsexual in a black

    Saving star wars

    • Year Released: 2004
    Saving Star Wars is a 2004 independent film by Woodworks Films that was written and produced by Gary Wood. The title is a play on the title of the World War II movie Saving Private Ryan and Star Wars. The first preview of the film was at a film festival called Reel Competition, where it was rated highly by the film-goers. It features David Prowse, the actor who played Darth Vader in the Star Wars trilogy. The film was shot in central Indiana, and shown at Celebration III in 2005 in a nearby IMAX theater. The original concept poster was designed by Associate Producer Josh Shanks and Travis Bow. Though a Star Wars fan as a child, life holds no magic or adventure for Woody Garrison (Joe Urban). Divorced and working two jobs to pay medical bills for his terminally ill son, Star Wars is now just a movie. Only at the request of his son (Scott Heffern II) does he set off with his childhood buddy, Hank (Jim Peterson), on a quest to find filmmaker George Lucas (George Starkey) and convince him to continue making Star Wars movies. Through a series of mishaps, Woody and Hank accidentally kidnap Lucas and allow the script for Episode III to fall into the hands of an unbalanced fan (Scott C.

    The music never stopped

    • Year Released: 2011
    The Music Never Stopped is a 2011 American drama film directed by Jim Kohlberg, who makes his directorial debut from a script by Gwyn Lurie and Gary Marks. It premiered at the 2011 Sundance Film Festival, and was given a limited release in the US on March 18, 2011. Based on Oliver Sacks' essay The Last Hippie, the film tells the father-son relationship between Henry Sawyer (J.K. Simmons) and his son, Gabriel (Lou Taylor Pucci), who suffers from a brain tumor that prevents him from forming new memories. Henry, with his son unable to shed light on their strained relationship, must connect with him through music. The film currently holds a 64% "fresh" rating on Rotten Tomatoes, based on 47 reviews. Ty Burr of the Boston Globe remarked the film was "one to remember", also calling it "sentimental, yet so honest and eccentric that it rises above schmaltz." Nathan Rabin of the AV Club compared the film's story to The King's Speech, giving praise to J.K. Simmons and Lou Taylor Pucci and calling the film a "powerful, even shattering look as music’s power to unite where it once divided."
