ONE PLUS ONE
1968, ABKCO Films, 110 min, UK, Dir: Jean-Luc Godard

One of the pivotal and, arguably, most controversial works of legendary provocateur Jean-Luc Godard, the film alternates between reflections on contemporary politics and social issues of the late 1960s while providing an unprecedented view of The Rolling Stones’ creative process in the recording studio. Also released as SYMPATHY FOR THE DEVIL, this is the director’s preferred cut without the finished version of that famous song at the end.


WON’T YOU BE MY NEIGHBOR?
2018, Focus Features, 94 min, USA, Dir: Morgan Neville

For more than 30 years, an unassuming minister, puppeteer, writer and producer was beamed daily into homes across America. In his beloved television program, “Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood,” Fred Rogers and his cast of puppets and friends spoke directly to young children about some of life’s weightiest issues in a simple, direct fashion. In this engaging, moving documentary, Academy Award-winning filmmaker Morgan Neville (TWENTY FEET FROM STARDOM) looks back on the legacy of the soft-spoken, cardigan-clad TV host, focusing on his radically kind ideas and belief in the importance of protecting childhood. "A really good movie. ... It’s like a security blanket for our troubled times." - Chris Nashawaty, Entertainment Weekly
