Subtitled “Between Iraq and a hard place,” this documentary directed by Robert Taicher (THE HOLY MOUNTAIN, ENDLESS POETRY) is a scathing indictment of the 2003 invasion of Iraq and subsequent years of conflict that cost thousands of lives and hundreds of billions of dollars. Featuring interviews with such experts as former CentCom commander Anthony Zinni, former chief U.N. weapons inspector Scott Ritter, Sen. George McGovern and others, this powerful film illuminates a “war of choice” whose consequences are still felt today. “A powerful film, frightening in what it says about the U.S. under Bush, the war in Iraq and the ‘war on terror.’” – historian Howard Zinn.

Elliott Gould is Jimmy Morgan, an agoraphobic whose world is constrained by the walls of his Manhattan apartment. An inheritance has financed Morgan’s cloistered lifestyle for four years, but as his gambling debts and business problems mount, cracks appear in the shell. As a man growing as desperate as he is isolated, Gould gives one of his best performances in this ingeniously designed drama, which also features Jennifer Tilly, Howard Hesseman and Dana Elcar.
