This Divided State 2005
Description: This Divided State follows the controversy surrounding Utah Valley State College's invitation to liberal filmmaker Michael Moore to speak on campus. Though UVSC is located in one of the most conservative counties in the United States, vehement opposition to Moore's visit was much greater than anticipated. Equally surprising, however, was the overwhelming help for Moore, vocalized by students and community members previously considered "apathetic." Debate between Moore supporters and Moore protestors raged openly in the media and public forums. Death threats, hate mail, bribes, and lawsuits were all candidly captured on film.
Released: 22 Jul 2005 Director: Steven Greenstreet Writers: N/A Actors: Kay Anderson, Jim Bassi, Sean Vreeland, Michael Nigro Genres: Documentary

Sting: Unplugged #

Released 3/5/1991

Description: This video is the MTV Unplugged performance which was recorded in Fresh York on 5 March 1991. The difference between the ver screened on MTV and this release however, is the inclusion of an extra song and interview. Whereas the MTV present concentrated on pre-'Soul Cages' songs, on this release you receive perfect performances of 'Why Could I Cry For You' and 'The Wild Wild Sea'. As proved to be the situation with the VH1 Storytellers show, Sting enjoyed himself so much doing the acoustic set, that the following month he did a related set in his home city of Newcastle at the small Buddle Arts Centre. The Unplugged video is very interesting though and the songs performed work extremely well in their stripped down versions. Set List: 1. All This Time; 2. Angry About You; 3. Each Breath You Take; 4. Why Could I Cry For You?; 5. Message In A Bottle; 6. Tea In The Sahara; 7. Walking On The Moon; 8. The Wild Wild Sea

ZZ Top: VH1 Storytellers #

Released 6/27/2009

Description: ZZ Top might seem like something of a challenge for the VH1 "Storytellers" series because while this Texas blues-rock band has a safe spot in melody history, its three members don't have a reputation for being all that chatty. Billy Gibbons and Dusty Hill - the two bearded guys out front - are droll and funny. So is drummer Frank Beard, the one without a beard. But they've mostly allow their melody talk over the 40 years they've been testing together. This present comes across more as a ZZ Top greatest-hits concert, which certainly won't disappoint ZZ Top fans. Several bands have been as consistent in their sound over the years, and there's no allow down in this performance. Originally aired: 27 June 2009. Set List: 1. Just Got Paid; 2. La Grange; 3. Jesus Just Left Chicago; Gimme All Your Lovin'; 5. Tush; 6. Sharp Dressed Boy

Description: Held Hostage is the true and terrifying storyline of ordinary foreign workers who came face to face with Al Qaeda at the In Amenas gas plant in Algeria in January 2013. The attack left over 37 foreign hostages dead, including folks from the U.S., U.K., France, Japan, and Norway. As the horrific happenings unfolded over four days in the full glare of the world's media, Algerian unique forces and helicopter gunships attacked the website in an effort to end the crisis. Bringing together exclusive interviews with survivors and their families, expert analysis of the key events, and strong dramatic reconstruction of the terrifying four-day siege, this documentary raises many unanswered questions: How did a convoy of terrorists manage to travel undetected across hundreds of miles of desert and gain control of one of Algeria's most necessary and valuable gas facilities? And who was ultimately responsible for the security of the workers?

Drugs Are Like That #

Released 1/1/1969

Description: […] Though the highs and lows of human experience are all here, it's often the gimcrack set design and fashion chops in these vintage clunkers that really wow – the pot-holder sweater vests, ponytails decorated with yarn, hippies with crumb-catching moustaches, banana-seat bicycles and a difficult rain of Quaaludes and amphetamines to illustrate the dangers of drug addiction. It is difficult to trust anyone would purchase the goofball cause-and-effect of that pill-popper's weather pattern in "Drugs Are Like That". Co-produced by the Miami Junior League and narrated by Anita Bryant in this cheery tiny hand-slapper, a child stealing cookies from a cookie jar is implied to be headed down a terrible street to Bowery bum rolls and LSD parties.

Associated #

Released 11/30/2006

Description: Brooklyn, 4 July 2004. Jenny Perlin spends her whole Independence Day filming her neighbourhood supermarket. Although the front of the building is dilapidated and the sign is so old you can barely read it, this store has everything a larger supermarket has, "and sometimes even more," according to its proud owner Mr. Leem. He and his brother work 14-hour days in the supermarket. In an off-screen interview, he says about the shop's history and about his favorite music: Johnny Money and Najwa Karam. Each two hours, Perlin grabbed her 16 mm Bolex camera to shoot two and a half mins of movie (the time it takes for the spool to unwind). This "arbitrary" style of filmmaking emphasises not the action, but the rhythm. The beauty of the store is not in the extraordinary happenings taking zone there, but in the fixed patterns of plodding and rummaging.

Description: Zelal is a documentary that's an invitation to delve into the globe of psychiatry and "madness" in Egypt. It meets the ordinary madmen and girls banished to mental institutions by Egyptian society and offers more than just a adventure into their globe of shadows. The hospitals end up becoming the only zone patients can conceive, not because they are truly "crazy", but because they fear the outside world. The movie forces viewers to place their own preconceptions and interpretations to the test, reminding us that freedom is precarious in a society that does not tolerate any differences.

Description: Mary of Nazarene is one of the most famous female figures of our world's history. When feminist filmmaker and non-believer Nouchka van Brakel saw a painting of Mary, on which she was said that she would give birth to the Messiah, she was struck by Mary's rather reserved expression. Instead of happiness or humble devotion, the look on her face was doubtful. This fascinated Nouchka van Brakel, and led her to create AVE MARIA, a documentary on the one hand about this mythical, particularly beloved girl and on the another hand about her worshippers who create her Queen of Heaven. AVE MARIA portrays the untameable longing of mankind for the Mother of all mothers; from Virgin Mary, to Mother of the Son of God, to Lady of All Nations, to Queen of Heaven. What strong emotions drive those devoted to Mary? Adventures to Turkey, Poland, Spain and The Netherlands gradually reveal the mystery.... A fascinating quest.

This Divided State Reviews:

The American heartland of tolerance proves to be tolerant only to its own beliefs.What could have been just other election time political talk turned to be an insight into the democratic values of USA.The producers take their time to build up our knowledge of the students and the community involved, and it is a nice thing. This moves the focus away from Moore and into the happenings that transpired before (and after) his arrival. Nice time is spent on the students themselves and their views, as well as the major figure representing the conservative residents. Both sides receive a fair balance.What comes out of the movie is how shockingly weak are the democratic values many US citizens hold. In a country which prides itself about being an example of democracy, a leader of the "Free World" there is just as much intolerance as anywhere else. The part where the conservative personality gives a talk is unpleasant to watch for any supporter of democracy.This documentary could strike the average US American as a wake up call about how complacent democratic citizens can be when it comes to their political ideas. Everyone likes to thing they are upstanding democratic citizens, until M.Moore comes to town! The real use of democracy is being willing to listen to points of view opposite to your own and not outright dismiss them as wrong or even evil. This tiny movie painfully depicts that (at least) the Utah community failed this use miserably.On the another hand I'm sure that many Utah citizens didn't have a trouble with M.Moore coming to town. Unfortunately either the movie fails to represent them or I am mistaken and the movie is right in giving the impression that most of Utah accepted with the extreme undemocratic views expressed from their prominent(?) citizen.Is this the nature of politics? To be divisive? Would M.Moore speaking in a Fresh York University have made such a show? Unlikely. Then I guess it gotta have been something about this Utah community. That should have been an zone that the documentary should have explored. In doing so it would have be digging deeper into the heart of politics (and rational thought at that). Stil, even with its more narrow scope this tiny gem does very well. Very well indeed.


I live in Utah and sadly, this movie portrays the typical mindset here. We tend to be xenophobic, intolerant, and hateful of anything various yet it is cloaked in a message of "love thy neighbor." This movie does a unbelievable job of portraying the all-too-common view that Utahns are unable to handle outside concepts and any kind of diversity. In looking at the anger spewing out of the mouths of putative Christians, in particular Mr. Bryson, I am reminded of the looks of white southerners in the 50's when the schools were about to be integrated. The seething fury and irrationalism of these folks is shown all too well by the filmmaker. I suggest seeing this perfect movie and if it makes you avoid visiting or moving to Utah (especially the Provo/Orem zone south of Salt Lake City) it will have served a nice purpose.


I saw this movie and it's amazing. It's about the failure of civil discourse in America and it shows the actual divisive nature of politics. Whether you accept with Michael Moore or not, you'll accept that the crazy folks who tried to stop him from speaking overreacted immensely and made Utah look like some foreign country. Additionally, I think the movie was unbiased and showed an honest portrayal or the happenings without skewing the facts or taking things out of context.I don't understand why some folks gave this movie a "1" rating. They either gotta hate movies about positive messages, have never seen the film, or are just jealous that it's so bloody good. I give it a "10" across the board. See this film! You'll learn something!
