Great cover image!

Don't know if I'll shell out $15 for it but it does look very interesting.

The trailer gave me a bad impression. As if someone saw The Son of Saul and took its "tricks". This is what's dangerous with a second film, not confounding your style with tricks.

This looks very interesting. IIRC, I haven't seen this discussed anywhere else yet.

Just in case, I'll note a NSFW warning here because of some of the gallery images:

Showtime Greenlights Alex Gibney Docuseries ‘Enemies: The President, Justice & FBI’ Based On Book – TCA
via Deadline

As the ongoing clashes between the Donald Trump administration, the Justice Department and FBI continue to make daily headlines, Showtime has ordered the timely Enemies: The President, Justice & The FBI (working title) a new documentary series from Oscar and Emmy-winning director Alex Gibney, inspired by Pulitzer Prize-winning author Tim Weiner’s book, Enemies: A History of the FBI. The four-part docuseries, which provides an in-depth look into the long history of conflict between American presidents and the FBI, will premiere its first installment Sunday, November 18 at 8 PM ET/PT

Enemies the series tells the long, complex history of presidents testing the rule of law and the FBI’s job to enforce it, as well as an abuse of power from with the bureau. According to Showtime, From Nixon and Hoover to Trump and Comey, each battle illuminates a different facet of our democracy and the rule of law. Using the present as a prism, we look back to see which lessons held up, which didn’t and how the current investigation of the Trump administration might turn out.

The series will include intimate interviews with current and former officials, including those who were present for these moments in history, as well as interviews with journalists who broke the stories. The docuseries also features rare archival video, audio and photographs juxtaposed with short, stylized reconstructed scenes that will place viewers in the room during some of these momentous historical events.

Enemies: A History of the FBI was published in February 2012 by Yale University Press.
This Year In Film / Scotty and the Secret History of Hollywood
« Last post by wilberfan on August 06, 2018, 06:11:47 PM »

A portrait of unsung Hollywood legend Scotty Bowers, whose bestselling memoir chronicled his decades spent as sexual procurer to the stars. 

Director: Matt Tyrnauer
Genre(s): Documentary
Rating: Not Rated
Runtime: 98 min

I found it quite interesting, on multiple levels:  historical, sexual, gender-political, psychological, sociological...  It does go on a bit too long in spots with the present day scenes of Scotty in his multiple houses (the dude is a serious horder), but I found it otherwise fascinating.  Recommended.

That was extremely well done. There's no question you know where to put the camera and what to do with it while it's there, and you've always had a knack for showcasing whatever's visually interesting about your locations, but I'm most impressed with the character work. Every character feels lived in and complex, even down to the bit parts like the bartender at the bowling alley. I'm hyped for what's next.
