    The Academy Award-winning producer of Man on Wire unveils the incredible and moving story of Rodriguez, a '70s U.S. rock icon who never was. In the late '60s, a musician was discovered in a Detroit bar by two celebrated producers who were struck by his soulful melodies and prophetic lyrics. They recorded an album that they believed was going to secure his reputation as one of the greatest recording artists of his generation. Despite overwhelming critical acclaim, the album bombed and the singer disappeared into obscurity amid rumors of a gruesome on-stage suicide. But a bootleg recording found its way into apartheid South Africa and, over the next two decades, it became a phenomenon. Two South African fans then set out to find out what really happened to their hero. Their investigation led them to a story more extraordinary than any of the existing myths about the artist known as Rodriguez. This is a film about hope, inspiration and the resonating power of music.

  • Super Size Me [2004] Super Size Me | DVD | (10/01/2005) from £3.39  |  Saving you £-1.00 (-20.00%)  |  RRP £4.99

    Fans of Morgan Spurlock's engaging documentary Super Size Me won't want to miss almost an hour of extra footage on the DVD. Best of all is a 25-minute one-on-one interview with Eric Schlosser, author of Fast Food Nation, but other interesting moments are a chat with a couple who collects McDonald's memorabilia; an analysis of a supermarket's layout; further conversation with Big Mac fan Eric Gorske and his wife; a look at the deep-fried Twinkie; and a disgusting but funny piece on how McDonald's food rots (or doesn't). Spurlock also provides a commentary track along with his girlfriend Alex Jamieson (you know, the vegan chef) in which they discuss why he included certain scenes, how many times he ate McDonald's salads, and his recommendations for books to read and action to take. And because he and Jamieson received so many inquiries about the "last supper" he ate on film before embarking on his special diet, an insert contains the recipes, including the highly sought-after tofu and vegetable phyllo tart. --David Horiuchi

  • Capitalism - A Love Story [DVD] [2009] Capitalism - A Love Story | DVD | (24/05/2010) from £5.99  |  Saving you £13.26 (66.30%)  |  RRP £19.99

    On the 20-year anniversary of his groundbreaking masterpiece Roger & Me Michael Moore's Capitalism: A Love Story comes home to the issue he's been examining throughout his career: the disastrous impact of corporate dominance on the everyday lives of Americans (and by default the rest of the world). But this time the culprit is much bigger than General Motors and the crime scene far wider than Flint Michigan. From Middle America to the halls of power in Washington to the global financial epicenter in Manhattan Michael Moore once again takes filmgoers into uncharted territory. With both humor and outrage Michael Moore's Capitalism: A Love Story explores a taboo question: What is the price that America pays for its love of capitalism? Years ago that love seemed so innocent. Today however the American dream is looking more like a nightmare as families pay the price with their jobs their homes and their savings. Moore takes us into the homes of ordinary people whose lives have been turned upside down; and he goes looking for explanations in Washington DC and elsewhere. What he finds are the all-too-familiar symptoms of a love affair gone astray: lies abuse betrayal... and 14 000 jobs being lost every day. Capitalism: A Love Story is both a culmination of Moore's previous works and a look into what a more hopeful future could look like. It is Michael Moore's ultimate quest to answer the question he's posed throughout his illustrious filmmaking career: Who are we and why do we behave the way that we do?

  • Rize [2005] Rize | DVD | (17/09/2007) from £6.99  |  Saving you £13.00 (65.00%)  |  RRP £19.99

    A groundbreaking dance phenomenon that's exploding on the streets of South Central Los Angeles. Taking advantage of unprecedented access this documentary film bring to first light a revolutionary form of artistic expression borne from oppression. The aggressive and visually stunning dance modernizes moves indigenous to African tribal rituals and features mind-blowing athletic movement sped up to impossible speeds. We meet Tommy Johnson who first created the style as a response to the 1992 Rodney King riots and named it Clowning as well as the kids who developed the movement into what they now call Krumping. The kids use dance as an alternative to gangs and hustling: they form their own troupe and paint their faces like warriors meeting to outperform rival gangs of dancers or just to hone their skills. For the dancers Krumping becomes a way of life - and because it's authentic expression (in complete opposition to the bling-bling hip-hop culture) the dance becomes a vital part of who they are.
