SLAYING THE BADGER

  • Release Year: 2014
  • Runtime: 78 minutes
  • Directed By: John Dower
  • Country: U.K.
Before Lance Armstrong, there was Greg LeMond, now the first and only American to win the Tour de France. In this engrossing documentary, LeMond looks back at the pivotal 1986 Tour and his increasingly vicious rivalry with Bernard Hinault, “The Badger.” Hinault promised to help LeMond to his first victory, in return for LeMond supporting him the previous year. But in a sport that purports teamwork, it really is every man for himself. | Read More

SUPER DUPER ALICE COOPER

  • Release Year: 2014
  • Runtime: 86 minutes
  • Directed By: Reginald Harkema, Scot McFadyen, and Sam Dunn
  • Country: Canada
Emerging from the Detroit music scene of the 1970s in a flurry of long hair and sequins, Alice Cooper restored showmanship to hard rock while simultaneously striking fear into the heart of Middle America with chicken-slaughtering, deadbaby-eating theatrics. Meticulously crafted from rare archival footage, Super Duper Alice Cooper tells the story of the man behind the makeup, Vincent Furnier, the son of a preacher who got caught in the grip of his own monster. | Read More

SUPERMENSCH: THE LEGEND OF SHEP GORDON

  • Release Year: 2013
  • Runtime: 85 minutes

Making playful use of archival footage, new interviews, and his own close relationship with the legendary talent manager, Myers reveals a man who has embraced his dualities: a hard-driving dealmaker who wants everyone to be happy, and a rock 'n' roll hedonist who yearns for a family. Against a backdrop of debauchery, he's a man on a spiritual quest. | Read More
