Description: The globe watched in horror as the happenings of September 11, 2001 unfolded. No stone has been left unturned in the painstaking process of piecing together what happened on that fateful day. The government's official ver of happenings has been consistent: Hijackers commandeered commercial jetliners in a highly coordinated terrorist attack on the Globe Trade Center and Pentagon that took the lives of some 3,000 Americans. Theories abound contradicting the official ver of events: Did the Twin Turrets really collapse from the fires, or did explosives inside cause the buildings to implode? Was the Pentagon hit by a missile, and not a commercial airliner? And why do so many folks trust theories like these?

Seedbed #

Released 1/1/1972

Description: “In this legendary sculpture/performance Acconci lay beneath a ramp built in the Sonnabend Gallery. Over the course of three weeks, he masturbated eight hours a day while murmuring things like, "You're pushing your cunt down on my mouth" or "You're ramming your cock down into my ass." Not only does the architectural intervention presage much of his subsequent work, but all of Acconci's fixations converge in this, the spiritual sphincter of his art. In Seedbed Acconci is the producer and the receiver of the work's pleasure. He is simultaneously public and private, making marks yet leaving tiny behind, and demonstrating ultra-awareness of his viewer while being in a semi-trance state.” – Jerry Saltz (via: http://www.ubu.com/film/acconci_seedbed.html)

I Am Bruce Lee Reviews:

This documentary, if one should call it that, I found to be disrespectful and a disservice to Bruce Lee. It gotta of been difficult to juggle all those ego's in those interviews, they even asked expert Martial Artist and renowned philosopher Mickey Rourke to give his wisdom on the matter which was comical to tell the least. Then they bring out embittered old boy who claims to be the grandfather of MMA, tiny point, the first 'M' in MMA stands for 'Mixed,' doing one style is not a mixture, end of non-debate. Bruce Lee didn't begin Martial Arts until he was 13, and only intensely trained later. He was far more than a mere warrior as this documentary suggests, he studied and wrote philosophy. I just found this mockumentary attempting to undermine Bruce Lee, through claims of plagiarism (even though they're his 'notes' not published works, so how they should claim plagiarism I do not know, equivalent of me being accused of plagiarism when I copy sentences and create notes in University from ebooks I have to study.) They test to undermine he was a nice fighter, their MMA fighters, if they think a true war consists of gloves and a ring they obviously have no concept of the harsh and unfair reality of fighting. Anyhow Bruce Lee wouldn't endorse a commercialized fighting tournament that offers folks nothing but mindless entertainment through brutality. Please don't compare Bruce Lee to the likes of Tiger Woods and Jay Z, he has more integrity in the hint of his finger than they have in each fibre of their being.Bruce Lee also wrote about philosophy and life, he also studied and wrote poetry, look up 'Bruce Lee poems' you'll be pleasantly surprised. The only person who spoke with grace was his courageous and unbelievable wife who I can only admire for her strength of spirit. Just what we could remember Bruce Lee for, his strength of spirit, far more than a mere fighter, he had the spirit of a fighter and was a refined gentlemen, traits we could all strive for. Sorry for the long review, but I felt it required to be said.


In "I Am Bruce Lee" there is a popular interview where Bruce distinguishes his philosophy: "Empty your mind. Be formless like water... If you pour water into a cup, it becomes the cup. If you pour water into a teapot, it becomes the teapot. Actually water can flow or it can crash. Be like water, my friend." Bruce eloquently relates Tao Te Ching. Amazingly, these were the words of Stirling Silliphant ("In the Heat of the Night") from an episode of "Longstreet" back in the 1970's starring James Franciscus. Silliphant was a student of Bruce Lee, and the episode was named "Way of the Intercepting Fist" which many know is Bruce's creation, Jeet Kune Do. I remember watching Lee in the TV series. This was before he became the martial arts icon—he was magnetic and compelling. In the interview Bruce told he got to enjoy himself, not some character. What struck me was that Bruce Lee was the awesomely gifted martial artist, who was also an nice teacher. That is a rarity. I think had Bruce lived, he would have become the nice martial arts teacher and transformed the distinction martial arts.Silliphant went on to write the TV series "Kung Fu" from Bruce's original concept. But instead of the casting Chinese Lee as the lead Warner Brothers went with David Carradine. Lee eventually made "Enter the Dragon" for Warner Brothers, he tragically died before the release of the movie. I know this is a lot of history, and Director Pete McCormack brilliantly connects the dots in this refreshing and compelling documentary of Bruce Lee's life and death. There is an undercurrent of racism and fighting the establishment in this storyline which Bruce lived with. McCormack blends a captivating mix of interviews with celebrity fans, and those close to Bruce. Kobe Bryant is captioned as NBA All-Star/ Martial Artist. I wondered what he trains in. Did not know Ed O'Neil ("Modern Family") was a black belt in Brazilian Jujitsu—which is awesome. UFC Winner Jon Jones is very cool in his admiration of his character Lee. However, McCormack goes sideways with some of his guys including skateboarder Paul Rodriguez and some dude from the Black Eyed Peas. Cantankerous Judo expert Gene LeBelle comes across as a weird skeptic of the Bruce Lee prowess, though it turns out Bruce trained with him.Bruce Lee is an icon and iconoclast. Linda Lee Caldwell, Lee's widow, amazingly says the storyline of how Bruce defeated a warrior from China, because Bruce chose to teach Wing Chun which he learned from the legendary Yip Boy to anyone, not just Chinese. Linda says how Lee made the warrior submit within 3 minutes. After the war Lee lamented that he could have been able to end the war sooner—Wing Chun alone was not it. Thus, Bruce began the evolution of Jeet Kune Do-- all styles and no style. His first students Dan Inosanto and Richard Bustillio convey their love and awe for their fallen friend. Bruce Lee transcended race and even martial arts. "I Am Bruce Lee" in its own special method captures that feeling: Everyone wanted to be Bruce Lee. Bruce taught Steve McQueen, James Coburn, and Kareem Abdul Jabbar. Linda Lee Caldwell says how Bruce wished Steve should be more like James and James should be more like Steve. Linda tells that Bruce was her strength, but you receive that she was his rock. This is particularly evident in the storyline surrounding Lee's death.Poignantly, Kobe Bryant talks about the downside of celebrity. Bruce Lee may have been seduced by fame. His mate and "Enter the Dragon" co-star Bob Wall talks about Bruce's phenomenal prowess. But he also talks about Lee having an allergic reaction to medication, and being found in other woman's apartment. Caldwell is gracious in that she has made peace with that, and to this day finds joy in seeing him on screen. Lee's daughter Shannon Lee, also the movie's Producer, fondly remembers her father and the spectacle of the funeral. Bruce was a boy with an upside and a downside. Most importantly, he is still loved to this day.The footage of the Bruce Lee films reminds us of the icon, who was total genius in his body. He was 5'7" and 135 lb, and so quick and so strong. The clips of his "one-inch punch" are astounding. He was pretty and immortal. His goddaughter Diana Lee Inosanto says, "He place balls on Chinese men." Provocative. More to the point: Bruce had the excellent body, was charismatic, and sexy. MMA Winner Gina Carano ("Haywire") vehemently agrees. It is interesting that there have not been any crossover Asian stars as compelling as Bruce. Then again, how often does Bruce Lee come along in a lifetime? What landed for me was Linda talking about Bruce's legacy even today. She told she is touched by the fact that Bruce inspired generations to be great. As a child watching his movies, he inspired me to pursue the martial arts. Actually I am a Sensei, and have the occasion to give something back to others. Bruce made us dare to be great. And that is an nice legacy.


Please just go out and receive a well reviewed biography instead. Fighting Spirit by Bruce Howard is my favourite, but receive a several for a more finished picture.This documentary is done in the style of those "Review of the Year" kind shows where they have multiple Z list celebrities who give their two-cents, that nobody cares about. They have no expert opinion, and have nothing to add another than fanboy enthusiasm. The entire method through there's a cheesy soundtrack, just in situation you receive bored. There are lots of clips of the Z list celebrities throwing punches, because that's what you wish to see in a Bruce Lee documentary, another folks punching.His wife, and Dan Inosanto are interviewed, and come across well, but informative sources are several and far between. Shannon Lee is engaging, but she was 4 when her father died - her input is limited.If you purchased the Enter the Dragon Unique Edition DVD you've probably seen most of the footage in this documentary. Better watch it there, than here interspersed with irritating actors and MMA fighters.Just so you're aware of the kinds of useless folks they have in this documentary. If they stripped out these nobodies and kept it down to the core group of experts, they might have had something passable.Taboo from the Black Eyed Peas (Taboo? More like Tab-who?) Mickey Rourke (Played a wrestler in a movie) Paul Rodriguez (Professional skateboarder) Ed O'Neill (Played Al Bundy in a sitcom)Dana White (UFC dude) Lots more fanboys wearing Bruce lee t-shirts.
