Heavy Petting #

Released 1/1/1989

Description: HEAVY PETTING is a hilarious and salacious exploration of the sexual mores of the 50's as seen through the eyes of a generation that lived through the Sexual Revolution. Constructive baby boomers-- including musician David Byrne, performance artist Spalding Gray, comedian Sandra Bernhard, radical activist Abbie Hoffman, and poet Allen Ginsberg-- candidly recall their sexual coming-f-age tales in intimate interviews. Joyously campy and refreshingly carefree, HEAVY PETTING blends humorous, wonderful footage of unhelpful sex-ed movies with classic snippets of THE WILD ONE and Elvis' hip gyrations, not to mention Bernhard talking about testing "doctor", everytime observant Ginsberg on a disastrous encounter with a girl, and Byrne on the childhood myths of masturbation. Eternal mysteries such as the female orgasm, the universal appeal of Marilyn Monroe, and the rituals of high school are laid bare by this lovable group of characters.

Released 4/1/1985

Description: Claude Lanzmann directed this 9 1/2 hour documentary of the Holocaust without using a single frame of archive footage. He interviews survivors, witnesses, and ex-Nazis (whom he had to movie secretly since they only accepted to be interviewed by audio). His style of interviewing by asking for the most minute features is effective at adding up these features to give a horrifying portrait of the happenings of Nazi genocide. He also shows, or rather lets some of his topics themselves show, that the anti-Semitism that caused 6 million Jews to die in the Holocaust is still alive in well in many folks that still live in Germany, Poland, and elsewhere.

Bush's Brain Reviews:

When I first glimpsed the game to this documentary, I gotta admit that I was indeed a tiny taken aback. I never knew George W. Bush had a brain.However, "Bush's Brain" shows that Georege W. Bush does indeed have a brain working for him; it just happens to be within the head of other individual. The premise of the movie is that Karl Rove may be this generation's Senator McCarthy. Rove is to pro-war activities as Senator McCarthy was to communism, both true or imagined, in the early 1950's. By equating genuine questions by daily citizens about the legitimacy of the fight in Iraq with not being patriotic, Rove has set up a dynamic where clever discussion of foreign privacy is difficult, if not almost impossible. Bush is shown as being co-ruler with Rove, or could I tell Rove is co-ruler with Bush? Rove is part of Bush's advisory squad and few folks in this movie see Rove as wielding as much influence over Bush's decision making as a prime minister. Rove is seen as having marketed the Iraq fight as the defining moment for Bush, whom he calls 'the Fight President'. The fight in Iraq, then, is something which legitimizes the presidency for Bush and pushes all another problems aside. The Rove doctrine, simply stated, is that 'A real American either helps Bush and the Republican party or he is labeled a traitor' (Democrats and dissenting Republicans included). If these statements sound like something from one of George W. Bush's speeches, that is because both Rove and Bush tell very related things, sometimes word for word. The movie makes it a mission to reveal that it is hard to know where Bush and Rove differ as individuals; the game of the movie is meant to inform us that Bush and Rove are a squad and Rove is 'the brain' behind the operations, the power behind the throne. Rove has a history, according to the movie Bush's Brain, of destroying folks politically and disrupting the private lives of those who attempt to oppose him. Rove does these dirty deeds because 'he needs to victory at all costs' and Rove lives by the philosophy that 'the ends justify the means'. Many folks in the state of Texas have been harm by Rove. Rove is accused of running dirty campaigns vs such folks as Ann Richards (former governor of Texas), John Hightower (a Texas commissioner), and few another folks in different public offices. One of the most interesting anecdotes concerning Rove's political ways is that Rove once planted a 'bug' in his own office during a campaign and alerted the press so that his candidate would obtain sympathy votes. The FBI concluded that the 'bug' was not likely used or even operational, but the political hurt to the person challenging Rove's candidate had been done and Rove and his squad won the election. Rove is alleged to be the brains behind the smear campaign vs John McCain (Republican presidential candidate in 2000).The script of this movie was taken from research done by journalists James C. Moore and Wayne Slater. While it is possible to follow the movie without reading the ebook by these two journalists, which I will paraphrase as Bush's Brains: How Karl Rove Won the Presidency for George W. Bush, I suspect that reading the ebook would enhance the viewing of this film. A lot of Texas politics are covered in the first half of the film, the particulars of which I was only vaguely familiar. The movie does present a pattern of dirty politics which Rove seems to test consistently. It is interesting that Karl Rove declined to be interviewed for the movie but he did send a fifteen page letter to the book's creators taking trouble with some of their research. One or two folks who are presently on nice terms (i.e. speaking terms) with Karl Rove were willing to defend Rove's actions during political campaigns. Even his mates admit that he becomes overly consumed with winning. The movie was fair and balanced because of this inclusion of folks who left their association with Karl Rove on nice terms. Folks who had once been mates with Rove but had fallen from his nice graces also were interviewed. They admitted that he is a bright fellow but that he has a deep dark side when it comes to competitiveness - Rove is determined to victory at any cost. Where another campaigners would draw the line, Rove will boldly sling excrement and escalate the attacks until he has outright assassinated the hero of the enemy unfairly. After listening to few folks who were interviewed about the history of their dealings with Rove, one gets the impression that Rove is a genial boy to those he encounters until someone dare crosses him. Rove is very much a difficult worker for the Republican candidates for whom he campaigns and represents. If Rove senses or believes that his candidate may lose an election, he is not in the slightest bit hesitant to enjoy the very dirtiest and darkest politics. He is alleged to have been responsible for the finished hero assassination of John McCain, where McCain's sanity was named into question during the presidential election back in 2000. From the interviews of both mates and detractors of Rove, one gets a sense that Karl Rove and Machiavelli would accept that expediency is of the utmost importance in attaining one's targets and outweighs any ethical concerns.


CRIMINAL ATTACK DOG REVEALEDRiveting testimony from Republicans, Democrats and journalists exposes the felonies, devious and illegal activity that punctuates all the political campaigns and officials that Carl Rove has controlled.Joseph Wilson's wife's uncovering as a CIA under cover operative was astonishing, as it shows Rove as a traitor to the United States of America and its people. It appears that the fight in Iraq is fully politically premeditated and conjured to hold Bush in power. Watching the family that lost their son in the fight was very moving. It shows that elitists like Rove and Bush do not respect the enormous sacrifice of the individuals who serve in the armed forces, or their families.The film presents multiple stories and examples from reliable sourcesIllustrating how Rove has shaped Bush's personality and career for 35 years.Excellent! Well done. We need more informative documentaries like this so that the American folks are educated and so that they have an alternative to their steady diet of FOX's diatribe and misinformation.


Behind the scenes political consultant who has carefully crafted W's photo and choices at any cost. Only a 9 if politics and propaganda are topics you are interested in. Follows Rove's career since pre-Bush days as he steps on folks and does dirty tricks to conquer the many "other guys" he or his clients go against, quite often ending their careers. As a resident of Texas until 2000, I was more familiar with some of the users and "plays" in the first half and enjoyed hearing the storyline behind the story. As a mediocre governor, and my governor at the time, I was amazed when "W" got his parties nod in 2000 and actually I see how he accomplished this. A bit slow or off the path in places, it still makes it's mission very well. By the method if Robert Novak isn't held accountable for exposing the CIA operative, there is truly no justice in this world.
