WELCOME TO COLLINWOOD
2002, Warner Bros., 86 min, USA/Germany, Dir: Anthony Russo, Joe Russo

Five hapless misfits from the hard-luck streets of Cleveland band together to try to pull off the greatest score they've ever heard of - an easy crime with a huge payoff. Ironically, when the plan goes awry - as such plans always do - these eccentric underachievers find themselves gaining more than they lose. With William H. Macy, Sam Rockwell, Isaiah Washington and George Clooney.


HITCHCOCK/TRUFFAUT
2015, Cohen Media Group, 79 min, USA/France, Dir: Kent Jones

In 1962, Alfred Hitchcock and François Truffaut locked themselves away in Hollywood for a week to excavate the secrets behind the mise-en-scène in cinema. Based on the original recordings of this meeting - used to produce the mythical book Hitchcock/Truffaut - this film illustrates the greatest cinema lesson of all time and plummets us into the world of the creator of PSYCHO, THE BIRDS, and VERTIGO. Hitchcock’s incredibly modern art is elucidated and explained by today’s leading filmmakers, including Martin Scorsese, David Fincher, Arnaud Desplechin, Kiyoshi Kurosawa, Wes Anderson, James Gray, Olivier Assayas, Richard Linklater, Peter Bogdanovich and Paul Schrader. “A film buff’s nirvana ... A resourceful, illuminating and very welcome documentation both of filmmaking and the making of history.” - Todd McCarthy, The Hollywood Reporter.
