The Doors: Mr. Mojo Risin': The Story of L.A. Woman

Love this music documentary madly.


Documentary

Phil Bacharach
If you like rock ’n’ roll or drugs — or, perish the thought, even both — chances are you've gone through a Doors phase. Most likely that presumed phase was back in high school, when your parents didn't understand you and disheveled self-destruction was the height of romanticism.

‘Live from ...’

As an intern for ‘Saturday Night Live,’ an OKC native gets a behind-the-scenes look at the iconic TV show.


Features

Phil Bacharach
For more than five decades, television’s “Saturday Night Live” has been a staple of pop culture (“Well, isn’t that special?”). For an Oklahoma City woman attending college in New York, however, it meant just another day in the office.

In the Land of Blood and Honey


Drama

Phil Bacharach
“In the Land of Blood and Honey” doesn’t skimp on wartime atrocities.

The Man Nobody Knew

A son seeks to learn more about his CIA spymaster father in the documentary ‘The Man Nobody Knew.’


Documentary

Phil Bacharach
William Colby was the consummate CIA agent: stoic, steadfast and secretive. He rose through the ranks, from clandestine missions in the Office of Strategic Services during World War II to CIA director in the Nixon Administration.

Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy

Thrills are muted but chilling in the espionage tale of ‘Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy.’


Thriller

Phil Bacharach
For a guy named Smiley, the central character of “Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy” doesn’t do a lot of smiling.

Be it resolved ...

Celebrated Oklahomans make their New Year’s resolutions … and share them with you!


Features

Phil Bacharach
Aside from 2012 meaning the end of the world (a big shout-out to those kooky Mayans), the new year provides an opportunity to wipe the slate clean and start anew.

Nichols Hills home to new warning signs for drivers.

Another Earth

This intriguing sci-fi drama goes slightly out of orbit.


Sci-Fi

Phil Bacharach
You’ve got to admire the DIY ethic of “Another Earth.” Raw and grainy, it is steadfastly committed to its own smarts and vision — even if it ultimately falls short of its ambitions.

Hugo

‘Hugo’ is Martin Scorsese’s love letter to the cinema.


Drama

Phil Bacharach
Martin Scorsese loves movies. Anyone familiar with the director of “Raging Bull” and “The Departed” knows he worships at the altar of film. It’s not surprising, therefore, that Scorsese would make a love letter to the art form in which he immersed himself from his days as a sickly child growing up on New York’s mean streets.

Life Above All

In this drama, the impact of AIDS is rarely stated, but often heard.


Drama

Phil Bacharach
AIDS is rarely mentioned in “Life, Above All.” It’s referred to obliquely — a “bug,” “the other thing” — but its grim presence is always felt. When a character finally does call it by name, late in the movie, the effect is startling.

We Were Here


Documentary

Phil Bacharach
It would have been understandable had “We Were Here” veered into the maudlin. The documentary, which recounts how San Francisco’s gay community united in the 1980s to combat the AIDS epidemic, has its share of gut-wrenching stories. But the film is admirably no-frills.
