A People Without A Land #

Released 7/3/2014

Description: For decades, the prevailing wisdom has been that the solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict would come in the form of a two-state solution. Typically, this is formulated as an Israeli withdrawal from the West Bank and the establishment of a Palestinian state there and in the Gaza Strip. Unfortunately, with half a million Israeli settlers living throughout the West Bank and millions of Palestinian refugees demanding to return to their homes in Israel, the two-state solution no longer seems practical, allow alone just. "A Folks Without a Land" explores the notion that the only true solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict is a one-state solution. Spending time with folks from across the political spectrum, including settlers, politicians, activists and special individuals who have successfully crossed the ethnic divide, we discover the challenges that lie ahead as well as the chances that such a solution might entail.

"Sacred Sperm" penetrates into one of the most suppressed hidden problems in the Orthodox Hasidic Jewish Community - a Taboo.

Taking on the Kennedys #

Released 5/28/1996

Description: What would it be like to run vs one of the most strong political families in America? Enter the backrooms of American politics as a doctor called Kevin Vigilante takes on the Kennedys. In his first race for public office, Kevin Vigilante challenges Ted Kennedy's youngest son, Patrick, and gets the political education of a lifetime. Dedicated to running a clean fight, Vigilante later finds himself in the midst of a mud slinging contest. With negative adverts about Vigilante filling the airwaves, and John F. Kennedy Jr. signing autographs outside polling stations, Vigilante realizes he has no possibility of winning without slinging mud of his own, and proceeds to take off his gloves. Endemic of contemporary campaign politics, the sound byte takes precedence over the speech as problems are overshadowed by negative tv advertisements. Taking on the Kennedys aired as a part of PBS' P.O.V. series.

Room 237 Reviews:

This is quite the film. If you, too, are fascinated with the Shining, and you wish to hear extreme fanatics talk about their extreme fanatic theories, this is the film for you. It's necessary to note that this movie never claims to be the definitive interpretation of the Shining, but rather observations and private interpretations. Some of my favourite observations include: The Shining is about the storyline of the Minotaur; The Shining is the foil of 2001: a Zone Odyssey; and Kubrick was confessing he was involved in faking the moon landing footage. This final claim was backed up by the concept that the room number, 237, was selected because the moon is 237,000 miles from the World (even though the true value is closer to 239,000). In the door to Room 237, there is a key that has a tiny flap with the words Room No. 237. The commentator stated that the only words that should be made using those same letters are Moon and Room, indicating a confession that Kubrick was involved in faking the footage. I suppose the commentator forgot the words or, on, moo, nor, mono, norm, morn, moor, or moron. So, take this movie with a grain of salt (or several). If you're looking for "The Shining: explained," you're going to be woefully disappointed. If you're looking for a couple of fanatic theories that will tickle your brain and that you can type of chuckle at, or if you're looking to create fun of fanatic obsession, there's something in this movie for you. If you really wish to learn more about The Shining, you can look up notification on Youtube, or watch the movie again and analyze it yourself!


First of all, allow me say you that I've everytime found hidden messages, conspiracies, occult themes etc extremely interesting and it's something I love discussing about. I'm everytime very launch minded when it comes to this type of items and when i saw the trailer for this film i just should not wait to watch it. The Shining is a masterpiece and just the thought of that it should have a much bigger meaning was just too nice to be true.Last night i finally watched it, and boy was i ever disappointed. Like i said, I'm everytime opened minded when it comes to this type of stuff, but the theories the authors of this movie has come up with are so far- fetched it's almost embarrassing. They search a hidden meaning in each tiny thing and they never really seem to stop to question their own theories. Everything is taken for granted, and in my opinion, most of the claims are ridiculous; it holds no water. To give you an example of just how ridiculous some of the theories are: If you watched Finding Nemo right actually in the same state of mind as the authors of this film watched The Shining, you too would search subliminal messages about everything from The Holocaust to the faked moon landing. It's just insane.Also, all the various theories just turn into one large mess because there's so many of them, so it's difficult to understand what they are now trying to say. However, large ups for making this kind of movie. I just want there were method more solid arguments and not all these extremely far-fetched concepts that don't really create sense. The authors might have some things correct (we'll never know) but for me it's just method too over ambitious and messy.


There is a lot of anger about this movie on this page and, while I was considering whether to watch it or not, it was this passionate hate that made me interested to see it myself. It isn't across the board though, but whenever someone dislikes this movie they seem to really dislike it. The trouble seems to be that it appears to be a documentary about The Shining but it really isn't any such thing – but to watch it as one gotta be frustrating because you sit to watch that and have to listen to loopy theories about the movie presented as (in your head) facts. I didn't have this approach because I had heard it was all about the theories rather than the movie and as such I found it quite fascinating even if it is a tiny too long.The entire movie is folks talking over clips from the movie or another clips illustrating their point; the theories range from the movie being about the Holocaust through to the Native Americans through to the Kubrick making it about his own involvement in faking the moon landings. It is all cute nutty in terms of what it says, but it works because the contributors trust it and they speak with such passion and enthusiasm about their specific interpretations that it is difficult not to receive drawn in. There are plenty of moments where you search yourself starting to listen rather than mock – so specific things that are in the movie that are attributed to meaning something and I started to wonder "well, why is that thing there – it was selected to be in this shot or be worn by this character, so what was that decision taken for". Of course there are plenty of bits that do the opposite and are cute laughable but generally I found myself quite drawn in by it. The length works vs this in some methods because it does stretch things out more than it can bear but it was still engaging to me.Part of the interest for me was seeing how it is possible to really search meaning in anything if you apply yourself. I was never a fanatic of school lessons where we had to tear works apart looking at every feature and talking about what it should possibly mean, rather than just enjoying the entire for what it does, and this is what happens here. The hunt for meaning and for symbols rewards those that are doing it, but ultimately they all have their mission if their theory is true. The extent of their criticial analysis of every frame and second of the movie is intense and it did create me wonder why they did it and whether they are still able to see the movie for the nice piece of entertainment that it is?Room 237 is too long and lacks a clear mission – it would have benefited from something topping and tailing it, but as it is I still found it engaging thanks to the passion and feature in the delivery; it doesn't mock these folks it just gives them a platform and leaves the rest to us and them. I found it interesting even if ultimately it is quite empty as a movie – ultimately if you dig in each corner looking for your agenda, you'll search enough to back you up – which isn't the same as you being correct. This is the message that I took from it and I found that message to be entertaining, but it is ironic that Room 237 is about lots of folks seeking meaning in one film, all while it really doesn't do a nice job of presenting its own meaning.
