Rewards for success were large but the price to be paid for getting things wrong was severe – Schwantz broke both wrists, Doohan shattered his leg and Wayne Rainey, who tasted success more than most, actually has to test a wheelchair following a horrific ruin at Misano. This is the storyline of Rainey's adrenaline fuelled career with input from friends, rivals, managers, journalists and the boy himself.

Mr. Hayashi #

Released 1/1/1961

Description: Bruce Baillie's Mr. Hayashi might be thought of as a putative East Coast storyline transformed by a West Coast sensibility. The narrative, slight as it is, mounts a social critique of sorts, involving the difficulty the game character, a Japanese gardener, has finding work that pays adequately. But the beauty of Baillie's black-and-white photography, the misty lusciousness of the landscapes he chooses to photograph, and the strong silence of Mr. Hayashi's figure within them create the viewer forget all about economics and ethnicity. The shots remind us of Sung scrolls of fields and mountain peaks, where the human figure is dwarfed in the middle distance. Rather than a study of unemployment, the movie becomes a study of nested layers of stillness and serenity.

Description: Caustic wit, boy about town, James McNeill Whistler was the original art star. Popular for his patent leather shoes, monocle, and uptown swagger, Whistler's theatrics attracted the curiosity of buyers and the attention of the critics. But beneath the high gloss and mannered style, the struggle of this pioneering genius to search his own voice resulted in a breakaway style that moved painting towards abstraction and would revolutionize the art globe in his time-and beyond. Greatest known for the groundbreaking portrait of his mother, Whistler had become one of the most recognized artists in Europe by the time of his death. He is actually placed in the first rank of modern painters, his work compared to that of Velazquez and Rembrandt. Dramatic re-creations, art, graphics, and interviews combine to profile this fascinating character.

Becoming John Ford Reviews:

Becoming John Ford (2007) *** 1/2 (out of 4) Very nice documentary that covers John Ford's years at Fox. Considering we just had a Ford documentary last year I really wasn't expecting this to offer anything fresh but it now does. The one negative thing about the movie is that I want it would have spent more time discussing his silent movies and talking about some of the ones that are actually lost. Outside of that, this movie centers on the Fox years and makes some very interesting comments about Ford the person and how this person leaked into his movies. It was somewhat sad to hear how Henry Fonda and Ford had their falling out with the director punching the actor but I guess that's just Ford. There's a lot of style on display here that seems out of zone at times but this is still a nice introduction to the Fox years.


I found this doc very slow. It took 2 mins into the movie before you saw the first image of Mr. Ford. The intro had nothing to do with Mr. Ford or his work. Plus, they never spoke to one person who worked with Mr. Ford. How about Maureen O'Hara?The stories have been told. And it looked like a image shoot for those who talk about Mr. Ford (with stories that have been said before). The only nice part of the movie was Mr. Fonda. He did test to give a look into Mr. Ford and his Father's work together.I loved Mr. Redman's doc on the Wild Bunch. But this was boring look at a nice Director.


Just a lot of movie studies 101 talk from boring professor types who blab and drone on and on and on. They deliever us with many useless tidbits on why movies are important. I thought this was to be about the director John Ford.We come out of this knowing next to nothing about John Ford the boy – what shaped him, why did he become a movie director, his upbringing.Does not mention the major movies of John Ford - Stagecoach or The Searchers or The Boy Who Shot Liberty Valance??? Why?? Simply Incomprehensible!!! John Wayne is barely mentioned.Nothing is told about how the movies were made on the zone – such as Monument Valley. Ranks as one of the worst documentaries I have ever seen.
