The 33. MPAA Deemed Michael Moore's 'Where To Invade Next' Too Dangerous For American Teens To See On Their Own. Michael Moore’s anticipated “Where To Invade Next” is opening nationally in movie theaters this weekend, but the filmmaker himself has been sick with pneumonia and unable to promote the film “live”. Instead, he’s been composing a message to American High School Students on his website, encouraging them not only to see his film, but also providing pointers of how to sneak in. Why? Because the film is rated “R”, and Moore feels the reason for the rating is because the MPAA has deemed his film too dangerous for teenagers to see on their own. And why would that be, if there’s no profanities, splatter, nudity or anything else that could be perceived offensive to justify the “R” rating? According to Moore: “Some people would prefer you not know how teenagers in the rest of the world are treated.

This is why Moore feels it’s important for the students to see the film, in order to understand what they are missing out on. Official trailer of Michael Moore’s “Where To Invade Next” on Youtube.

Trapped. 02.26.16 - “I’m hoping that what we’re seeing right now is the darkest night which will bring the brightest tomorrow,” says clinic owner Gloria Grey with tears in her eyes in the documentary Trapped, a film about the impact of abortion restrictions that will premier next week in select cities across the country.

Grey operates the West Alabama Women’s Center, one of only three clinics in Alabama—all of which are threatened by pending state laws designed specifically to shutter abortion providers. Her clinic was recently forced to close temporarily, stranding hundreds of women without access to safe, legal abortion care in their communities. Trapped takes a timely, intimate look at the ravaged landscape of abortion care in the U.S. south, particularly in Alabama, Mississippi, and Texas—due to the avalanche of anti-choice restrictions passed in the last six years—by going inside several of the most affected clinics and talking to doctors, administrators, and patients. The Witch. Ripper Street definitely ending after Season 5. Probably. Auschwitz as an industrial workplace: Devastating Holocaust drama “Son of Saul” finds a new story in the Nazi death camp.

You may suspect there are no more untold stories about the Holocaust, the central signifying event of the 20th century, or at any rate no new ways of telling them. I suspected that myself, but “Son of Saul,” the riveting debut feature from Hungarian director László Nemes, proves otherwise. Gripping from its first frame to its last, and ending with a shot of unforgettable and heartbreaking simplicity – just a stand of trees in a Polish wood, through which we have seen a small boy running away, stirring in a gentle breeze – “Son of Saul” is a work of superlative filmmaking craft and moral intensity.

Most of the film is shot in medium close-up or extreme close-up, so there are often background or foreground events occurring out of focus that we can only partly apprehend. (Sometimes we may not want to.) Saul is a Sonderkommando, a Jewish inmate compelled to work as slave labor in a death camp. I would say that Nemes never cheats for one second in “Son of Saul.” Movie Review: 'Unity' May Open Your Mind To A New Way Of Understanding Humanity. The recently-released documentary “Unity” questions the human relationship to life, suffering, and our connectedness to every living thing in a powerful look at the world today.

If you’re looking for light-hearted fun, you’ve come to the wrong place. If you’re ready to question your entire way of thinking, however, this is the documentary for you. The official website of the documentary offers the following summary of the film’s message: “UNITY is a new film from the writer and director of EARTHLINGS, and features an unprecedented cast of 100 celebrity narrators. It is a documentary about why we can’t seem to get along with each other, even after thousands and thousands of years.” Put that way, it seems a huge undertaking, doesn’t it? Believe it or not, the film’s creators do a laudable job of breaking it down to a relatable message, encapsulated in just one hour and thirty-nine minutes. The documentary begins with a disturbing image of a cow being electrocuted and led to slaughter. Margin Call. Murder By Numbers. Murdoch Mysteries. My Week With Marilyn. Of Gods and Men. NightJohn.

The Whistleblower. The World According to Monsanto. There's nothing they are leaving untouched: the mustard, the okra, the bringe oil, the rice, the cauliflower. Once they have established the norm: that seed can be owned as their property, royalties can be collected. We will depend on them for every seed we grow of every crop we grow. If they control seed, they control food, they know it – it's strategic. It's more powerful than bombs. It's more powerful than guns. This is the best way to control the populations of the world. Thanks to these intimate links between Monsanto and government agencies, the US adopted GE foods and crops without proper testing, without consumer labeling and in spite of serious questions hanging over their safety.

Monsanto’s long arm stretched so far that, in the early nineties, the US Food and Drugs Agency even ignored warnings of their own scientists, who were cautioning that GE crops could cause negative health effects.
