There Are No Innocent Bystanders
‘There And No Innocent Bystanders’, a new film chronicling The Libertines’ past, present and future. The film gives an intimate insight into a band (The Libertines) reforming. The film captures the spirit of the band: stories and moments retold and relived by the band themselves. Profiling each band member individually and collectively -- something which has never been done before -- the film gives each of the boys the chance to put their story in their way.
Critic Reviews“The film is a fair slice of nostalgia about one of the most influential bands to ever come from Britain. And though you might distance yourself from the lingering indie fall out that haunts the streets of Camden in 2014, any British music fan who owned a guitar during the last ten years would be lying if they said Up The Bracket didn't feel godly at some point during their formative years.” Vice

What it is doing, and beautifully, is making a sunny and optimistic case for why the world is worth saving, via gorgeous imagery and poetic appreciations of the bees themselves. NPR

Winner of three prime-time Emmy’s, Mea Maxima Culpa: Silence in the House of God is a 2012 documentary film directed by Oscar winning Alex Gibney. The film details the first known protest against clerical sex abuse in the United States by four deaf men.
Alex Gibney examines the abuse of power in the Catholic Church through the story of four courageous deaf men, who in the first known case of public protest, set out to expose the priest who abused them. Through their case the film follows a cover-up that winds its way from the row houses of Milwaukee, Wisconsin, through the bare ruined choirs of Ireland's churches, all the way to the highest office of the Vatican.
‘A kind of unintentional leaving gift for the outgoing Pope Benedict, though it is not one he is likely to relish.’ Guardian
‘The case has been widely reported but this is still an important film, laying out who knew what, and when. It's chilling: the conspiracy of silence goes all the way to the Vatican.’ Time Out
‘In the end, decades of such crimes going undetected and undeterred under the aegis of one employer - any employer - speaks for itself. And the extraordinary perseverance and courage of the men from St. John's speaks louder still.’ New York Post
‘There is something to be said for a clear and unblinking recitation of facts, and thankfully Mr. Gibney does a lot of that.’ New York Times

Lost in La Mancha is a 2002 documentary film about the making of Terry Gilliam's first attempt at The Man Who Killed Don Quixote. His effort was a film adaptation of the novel Don Quixote by Miguel de Cervantes. The documentary was shot in 2000 during Gilliam's first attempt to make the film, as an intended work of the genre known as the "making-of". But Gilliam's failure to complete his movie resulted in the documentary filmmakers retitling their work as Lost in la Mancha and releasing it independently.
Critic Leonard Maltin has described Lost in La Mancha as one of the best films about the process of moviemaking. It was nominated for various awards, including a BAFTA Award and a Satellite Award for Best Documentary Film. It won a Satellite Award for Best Documentary.
'Anyone who thinks making movies is easy needs to see this hilariously painful cautionary tale. It's a tribute to Gilliam that he never once took off his mike or asked the filmmakers to stop rolling.' Newsweek
'Gilliam himself is a joy to behold. His wit stays sharp even as his fortunes dull, and the conditions that conspire against him only prove the mettle in our man of La Mancha.' Globe and Mail
'A fascinating chronicle of bad luck, bad faith and bad weather all striking on the same day.' Washington Post

I Am Not Your Negro is a 2016 documentary film directed by Raoul Peck, based on James Baldwin's unfinished manuscript Remember This House. It was nominated for Best Documentary Feature at the 89th Academy Awards and won the BAFTA Award for Best Documentary.
Joe Morgenstern from the Wall Street Journal said, "the film is unsparing as history and enthralling as biography. It's an evocation of a passionate soul in a tumultuous era, a film that uses Baldwin’s spoken words, and his notes for an unfinished book, to illuminate the struggle for civil rights."
‘I Am Not Your Negro is an utterly brilliant film - bold, galvanising, even gripping…’ Sydney Morning Herald
‘Baldwin re-emerges as a devastatingly eloquent speaker and public intellectual; a figure who deserves his place alongside Edward Said, Frantz Fanon or Gore Vidal.’ Guardian
‘Raoul Peck's lyrical documentary was nominated for an Oscar this year, and it really should have won.’ Times UK
