Paper Clips
A film about an isolated school in a Tennessee valley and their project to collect a paper clip for each of the 6 million Jews and 5 million others (gypsies, homosexual, communists, etc) put to death by the nazis.
Worth seeing for a scene in which Joplin who has returned to her hometown for her high school reunion,is close to tears as she recounts how she was tormented by classmates and didn't have a date for the prom. Interviewer doesn't notice it though and she turns it into a joke. High school was a bitch even for the Queen of Rock n Roll. Two months later she died of an overdose.

The Wild Parrots of Telegraph Hill
Fascinating story of Birds Gone Wild.
The Corporation
Can you say "Evil"?
People, famous and non, who are obsessed with crossword puzzles. Some compete for a national title, meet each other at national conventions, or design puzzles. It's a lot like science fiction fandom.
The Slanted Screen
Asian actors and their history in Hollywood.
Death by Misadventure: the Mysterious Life of Bruce Lee
A very hard film to watch in every sense of the term. The sound recording is abysmal, the subject matter extremely difficult for a fan to take. Bruce's first episode brought him much closer to death than any of us realized. Very graphic testimony of the doctors and coroner involved with his case.
Schlock: The Secret History of American Movies
Up close and personal with the seemier side of film prodction and the history of the exploitation film in brief.
