These new additions to our film collection are worth a look.
I Am Santa Claus
The documentary, produced by Morgan Spurlock, follows the lives of six real-bearded professional Santa Clauses as they anticipate and prepare the coming holiday season while showing them for who they actually are; flawed, flesh and blood men who feel an overbearing responsibility to protect the integrity of the spotless, untarnished reputation of the "Red Suit."
Monty Python Live (Mostly): One Down, Five to Go
Monty Python is flying again for a final reunion, well, sort of. This hugely anticipated live show took place on June 20, 2014 at the O2 Arena in London. At a combined age of just 357, John Cleese, Terry Gilliam, Eric Idle, Terry Jones and Michael Palin once again take to the stage and perform some of Monty Python's greatest hits with modern, topical, Pythonesque twists. "Raunchy, irreverent and as silly as ever." -Variety
My Winnipeg: The Criterion Collection
A work of memory and imagination, Maddin's film burrows into what the filmmaker calls "the heart of the heart" of the continent, conjuring a city as delightful as it is fearsome, populated by sleepwalkers and hockey aficionados. Take part in Winnipeg's annual epic scavenger hunt! Pay your respects to the racehorses forever frozen in the river! Help judge the yearly homoerotic Golden Boy pageant.
The Poker House
Fourteen-year-old Agnes and her two younger sisters find their own way to survive in life despite their drug addicted mother's prostitution and the mother's habit for bringing seedy characters and her abusive pimp into the house.
