Renée 2011
Description: From his days championing college sports to his stint as a naval officer, tennis ace, ladies' man, and all-American man Richard Raskind was an archetypical male in each sense. And then in his 40s, after getting married and having a son, Richard became Renée. Renée was still dynamite on the tennis court, but being the first transsexual user in the women's US Launch would place her in a spotlight she couldn't escape. As she publicly fought those who told she shouldn't be allowed to enjoy as a woman, Renée alienated her increasingly troubled son—a relationship she struggles to repair to this day.

The Next Nostradamus #

Released 11/30/2008

Description: Many are overly familiar with the eerily prescient foretellings of 16th Century French prophet Michel de Nostradame, (1503-66). But several may realize that an early 21st century equivalent of Nostradamus began making prophecies comparable to those of the Middle Ages' most prominent seer - with the aid of a pc -in the late 1980s. Dr. Bueno de Mesquita's prophecies (unlike Nostradame's) were concrete enough that they now enabled observers to predict happenings before those happenings occurred, including the second Intifada and the crackdown at Tianamen Square by the Chinese government. Then, de Mesquita emerged with a host of much darker and more foreboding prophecies including famine, Globe Fight III, and the comeback of the Antichrist.

Description: Neil Hamburger is a two-bit stand-up with a terrible comb-over--an aging, phlegmy jokester with a penchant for cheap celebrity jabs. He's also the brilliantly odd creation of Gregg Turkington, a decidedly more gifted comedian who has found a loyal cult following for his Tony Clifton-esque character. In this concert release, Hamburger performs a handful of twangy country tunes alongside the Too-Good-For-Neil-Hamburger Band, a name that speaks the truth: the back-up group contains veteran rockers Prairie Prince, David Gleason, and Atom Ellis.

Natural Resistance #

Released 2/18/2014

Description: Ten years after Mondovino, his analysis of the increasingly standardised wine production in France, wine expert Jonathan Nossiter picks up the thread again and shows what it means to be rooted in the soil you're working on. During walks through the vineyards and relaxed gatherings with a group of alternative Italian wine growers, he trades experiences and arguments. What looks like a bucolic paradise, where clever folks produce wine according to time-honoured and organic methods, is now revealed to be a battleground. The DOC association, which is supposed to look after the interest of independent vintners, promotes winemakers who produce vast amounts in a standardised quality; and the agricultural industry with its hygiene regulations excludes traditional ways of production. The only thing saving the landscape from being fully destroyed is affluent foreigners using the old vineyards as summer vacation homes.

Sylvia Kristel – Paris #

Released 2/19/2003

Description: Sylvia Kristel – Paris is a portrait of Sylvia Kristel , greatest known for her role in the 1970’s erotic cult classic Emmanuelle, as well as a movie about the impossibility of memory in relation to biography. Between November 2000 and June 2002 Manon de Boer recorded the stories and memories of Kristel. At every recording session she asked her to speak about a town where Kristel has lived: Paris, Los Angeles, Brussels or Amsterdam; over the two years she spoke on few opportunities about the same city. At first glance the collection of stories appears to create up a sort of biography, but over time it shows the impossibility of biography: the impossibility of ‘plotting’ somebody’s life as a coherent narrative.

Renée Reviews:

This turned out to be a lot more interesting that I might have thought. I remembered the "Renee Richards" controversy back in the '70s but hadn't heard anything in years and have a neutral opinion about the entire episode, frankly. What I'm referring to is a man, an perfect amateur tennis player, who had a sex-change operation and then, one day, decided to enjoy professional tennis as a woman."He" was Richard Raskind, a ranking national junior tennis user from Fresh York Town who also served in the Navy and became a noted eye surgeon/opthomologist. To create a long-story-short, Richards led an back-and-forth existence as a boy who really wanted to be a woman. When he did finally change to a "she," newly-named "Renee Richards" was content to be live a entire fresh life anonymously out in California. That changed once she entered, and won, a tennis tourney.The entire storyline is fascinating. Seeing Dr. Richards' appearance today, and then back in the '70s and then as a younger boy is just astonishing. You can't trust it's the same person.Like a lot of 30-for-30 specials, it's just an interesting human story.


Renee (2011) *** 1/2 (out of 4) Even though ESPN's "30 for 30" series ended it hasn't stopped the company from delivering some difficult hitting stories. This one here takes a look at Dr. Richard Raskin who in the 70s was a highly respected surgeon but after getting married and having a kid he had a sex change and became Renee Richards. At first as Renee she wanted to stay out of the limelight but this all changed after she attempted to enjoy professional tennis. I watch quite a bit of tennis and have done so for well over a decade but I had never heard this storyline so all of the happenings here were fresh to me. I guess everyone is going to have an opinion on whether or not it was fair for a former boy to be testing in the women's league but in my own private opinion, just from seeing the clips here, there's no question that Renee had an advantage. However, as the movie also points out, she never became a superstar, never won a major game and in the end it really cost her a entire lot more than it ever got her. I think it's fair to tell that the only thing she did victory was being able to do what she wanted without having to bow down to anyone else. The documentary covers her life as a man, the eventual sex change, the controversy with testing tennis and it also shows where she is now. I will admit that at times I was shocked by the topics matter, at times disgusted but at the end of the movie I couldn't support but feel some sympathy for Renee and everything she went through. Of course, there's no method to deny the fact that she harm a lot of the folks around here and this contains her son who was abused by children at school over his "dad" being a girl and it's had a lasting impact on him to this day. Seeing the two brought together at the end was just downright depressing. Director Eric Drath does a very nice job at showing all sides of this story. I thought he did a very nice job at not only saying the storyline but being able to be down the middle and look at it from all directions. The likes of Billie Jean King, Mary Carillo, John McEnroe and Martina Navratilova are all interviewed and share their thoughts about the ordeal and how those in tennis reacted to it. RENEE includes a topics matter that I'm sure is going to turn off many viewers even today but I think fanatics of the sport could really give this documentary a shot.


I first heard about Renee - and transsexuals in general - back in the '70s when she hit the tennis courts and fought to be allowed to enjoy on the women's circuit. I didn't pay much attention to the tennis part of her storyline only the transgender part. I read her ebook 'Second Serve' some years soon to learn more about her.I found this documentary so interesting, but yet so sad too. Her son still has a lot of problems with her and what she did by abandoning him to go off and enjoy women's tennis. Her sister tells she still feels what Renee did by changing her gender was a mistake and she could have never done it. That's interesting I thought because I once read an article about Renee and the interviewer told that he felt it was the male, Richard, was the one raging to come out not the female, Renee. I assume this meant that she still talks and acts stereotypically like a male. So obviously it's not only her sister that feels that way. Cute much the same thing that folks are actually telling about Caitlyn Jenner.I gotta admit some of the things Renee told was rather bizarre or maybe you would call it delusional. At one mission she mentioned how when she would return home to Fresh York to visit her son when he was young she would wear a cheap wig and test to look male. Telling how ridiculous she thought she looked and folks would notice this too and apparently stare because of her appearance. It's weird because she never tells that about attempting to 'pass' as Renee even when it was stated by the reporter, Dick Carlson, who outed her that he, and a neighbor of his, saw Renee testing in a tennis match on T.V. and thought instantly she was a boy wearing a tennis dress. He did a tiny investigative work and discovered what they already suspected being true. Renee seems to ignore all of this and continues to speak as if folks would never guess that she's biologically a male despite what happened to her.As someone else stated the ending was so very said. After visiting her son, Nicky, it's mentioned he got evicted from his apartment and he appears to be homeless but nothing else was ever told about that. I was curious enough that I looked him up on Fb and he supposedly is actually living in south Florida selling true estate (I trust he was doing that in Fresh York too, so I'm not sure why he lost that job and was homeless another than the drug issues he has). I would highly suggest this doc for everyone despite how they feel about the subject. Renee's life was fascinating for sure.
