Through candid first-person testimony, revealing verite footage, and vintage home movies, Hessman, who spent many years living in Moscow, reveals a Russia rarely ever seen on film, where people are frank about their lives and forthcoming about their country. Engaging, funny, and positively inspiring, in MY PERESTROIKA politics is personal, honesty overshadows ideology, and history progresses one day, one life at a time. -- (C) International Film Circuit

The Legend of Pale Male is the true account of one of the most surprising and remarkable love stories in the history of New York City. It begins in 1993, when a young man from Belgium looking to change his life has an unexpected encounter in Central Park. He meets a hawk. Not just any hawk, but a wild Redtail, a fierce predator that has not lived in the City for almost a hundred years. Affectionately known to New Yorkers as Pale Male, the hawk becomes a magnificent obsession -a metaphor for triumph against all odds. His nest, perched high on a posh Fifth Avenue co-op, starts out as a novel curiosity to a handful of avid birdwatchers but becomes an international tourist destination - a place of pilgrimage. Then, without warning, one December afternoon the building manager dismantles Pale Male's nest. The act unites an unlikely family of birdwatchers, movie stars, poets, children, dogs, reporters, and celebrities, including Mary Tyler Moore and David Letterman. What unfolds next could only happen in New York. -- (C) Balcony Releasing

A man decides to re-invent himself (at least for a few weeks) as a right jolly old elf in this documentary from director Jeff Myers. Jack Sanderson is a stocky, middle-aged man who has worked in the film business for years as an actor, producer and personal assistant. However, one year he gets the idea to add something new to his resume -- playing Santa Claus. Sanderson decides to find out what it's like to impersonate Santa for a living, not to mention giving himself a dose of Christmas spirit after losing several close family members. Sanderson grows out his beard, dyes it white, gets a custom-made Santa suit, and goes to Denver for a crash course at the American Events Santa School, where Susen Mesco has been turning ordinary guys into Kris Kringle for years. Diploma in hand, Sanderson lands a few gigs as Santa, ranging from ringing a bell for the Volunteers of America on a New York City street corner to dealing with a train full of fussy kids aboard a "Polar Express" in New Jersey. Along the way, Sanderson learns a lot about the history of Santa Claus and how he took on the image we know today, as well as meeting a number of other Santas and discovering the ups and downs of one of the world's most remarkable seasonal occupations. Becoming Santa received its world premiere at the 2011 South by Southwest Film Festival. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi

Shot over the course of eight years and compiled from almost 500 hours of footage, Battle for Brooklyn is an epic and universal tale of one man under pressure, and how far he will go to fight for his home and what he believes in. -- (C) Official Site

Beca (Anna Kendrick) is that girl who'd rather listen to what's coming out of her headphones than what's coming out of you. Arriving at her new college, she finds herself not right for any clique but somehow is muscled into one that she never would have picked on her own: alongside mean girls, sweet girls and weird girls whose only thing in common is how good they sound when they sing together, in the new out-loud comedy Pitch Perfect. When Beca takes this acoustic singing group out of their world of traditional arrangements and perfect harmonies into all-new mash-ups, they fight to climb their way to the top of the cutthroat world of college a cappella. This could wind up either the coolest thing they'll ever do or the most insane, and it will probably be a little of both. -- (C) Universal

When you get married, you're not just getting a husband or wife-you get the family, the friends, even the exes. Buzzy and Katy are newlyweds. Katy's meddlesome sister Marcia has been married to Buzzy's friend Max for 18 years. As Marcia and Max's marriage is crumbling under the weight of life together as empty-nesters, Buzzy and Katy's honeymoon period is upended when Buzzy's wild-child baby sister shows up at the couple's TriBeCa apartment with more than a little baggage. With crackling humor and sharp insights into modern relationships, writer/director/actor Edward Burns tracks the tangled threads of these New Yorkers over three days. Aiming to root out the reality and bypassing the Hollywood sentimentality of love and marriage, he takes a documentary approach that is no less visually striking for its on-the-fly style. Shot entirely in TriBeCa, it's a quintessential New York film from a quintessential New York director. Burns has a singular way of getting past the veil of anonymity that comes with living in this city to really strike the core of his characters, played with candor and confidence by a top-notch ensemble that includes himself, Caitlin FitzGerald, Max Baker, Marsha Dietlein Bennett, and Kerry Bishe.

Cast: Mike Scotti
Genre: Documentary Special Interest
IMDB: IMDB Link

A critically acclaimed, powerful and emotionally charged new film takes "embedded" to an entirely new level like no documentary on war before. An unrelenting account of frontline battle by U.S. Marines during Operation Iraqi Freedom, Severe Clear is a uniquely intimate, extreme, often horrific portrait of war.

The story of 1st Lt. Mike Scotti - who filmed with a mini-cam, sharing his thoughts through entries in a battlefield journal - this gritty film is like no other. Capturing the chaos and complexity of war, SEVERE CLEAR personifies the fear, turmoil, moral conundrum, heart-pounding reality and sheer adrenaline rush of combat.

Follow Scotti, a combat veteran from the war in Afghanistan, and other members of 1st Battalion, 4th Marines, as they are deployed after 9/11 for the 2003 invasion of Iraq. Through their eyes - as they engage Taliban forces - we witness the raw sounds of war during a harrowing 300-mile charge to Baghdad, where resistance to their presence escalates.

As patriotism and youthful enthusiasm are paled by the brutal horrors of war ... each of them is forced to cope with life in the trenches.
