The trailer and four clips from THE PROPOSITION - Written by Nick Cave - Directed by John Hillcoat
  • Set against the harsh and unforgiving landscape of the 1880s Australian outback, "The Proposition" is a visually stunning tale of loyalty, revenge and the quest for justice in a lawless land. Charlie Burns (Guy Pearce) is a renegade. Along with his two brothers, Arthur (Danny Huston) and Mikey (Richard Wilson), he is wanted for murder. When Captain Stanley (Ray Winstone) captures Charlie and Mikey, he offers Charlie a proposition in an attempt to end the brutality that surrounds them -- the only way to save Mikey from the noose is for Charlie to track down and kill Arthur, his psychotic older brother. An impossible moral dilemma leads to a murderous climax.

Playboy Names Wisconsin Madison the Top Party School
  • I don't know about #1, but the party school reputation is certainly merited. Kids from the surrounding cities and states leave their own colleges on weekends to party in Madison. (My son, who lives way up in Appleton, is one of them.)

A series of video blogs for a comedy called Hot Fuzz, which stars Sean of the Dead
  • Police constable, Nicholas Angel (S of the D) is good at his job, so good in fact, he makes everyone else look bad. As a result, his superiors at the Met have decided to sweep him under the carpet. So it is that London's top cop finds himself in the sleepy West Country village of Sandford. With garden fetes and neighborhood watch meetings replacing the action of the city, Angel struggles to adapt to his situation and finds himself partnered with Danny Butterman, an oafish but well meaning young Constable, who dreams of being Mel Gibson. Just as all seems lost, a series of grisly accidents motivates Angel into action. Convinced of foul play, Angel realises that Sandford may not be as idyllic as it seems.

A clip from When Do We Eat?
  • "'When Do We Eat?' is the story of the world's fastest Passover seder that is anything but. On this night, secrets will be revealed, fantasies fulfilled, barriers broken down and some food might be consumed. A tough-love dad (Michael Lerner) has to deal with hosting his father (Jack Klugman) who never unpacks, his wife (Leslie Ann Warren), who is intent on creating the perfect Seder, and his children who go out of their way to make the night an adventure. When one of the kids slips Dad a tab of special psychedelic Ecstasy, his visions turn him into a modern day Moses intent on leading this hungry group to the promised land of family forgiveness. Of course they're all so stubborn, it would be easier to part the Red Sea."
