Losing Yourself

Traumatized by the death of his wife, a death he blames on the mystics and clairvoyants that prevented her from leaving the country and suffering her fatal accident, filmmaker Michael (Shane Johnson) vows to make a documentary proving that spirits, God, and supernatural entities don’t exist in The Possession of Michael King. His plan is to employ every demonologist and necromancer he can find and invite a demon to possess his body— Michael captures these rituals on film, trying to create a concrete record of how ineffective they are. When his documentary starts to feature stranger and more inexplicable phenomena than he was expecting, Michael’s investigation takes a sinister turn. Is he recording supernatural events, or are his demons just in his mind?

Set outside of time, in a country somewhere between Orson Welles’ The Trial, Interzone, and Terry Gilliam’s Brazil, The Double is the story of Simon James (Jesse Eisenberg), an office drone so unremarkable his boss (Wallace Shawn) still can’t remember his name.

He thinks he can make a connection with lonely, alientated Hannah (Mia Wasikowska) in the copy room, but just as he starts to assert himself, the office dynamic is upset by the arival of James Simon… who looks exactly like Simon James. James (also Eisenberg) is more confident and successful than Simon ever was, but what starts with James serving as a helpful life coach quickly becomes threatening: all of Simon’s work, choices, and decisions are no longer his own. With James impressing Simon’s boss and wooing Hannah, Simon has to find a way to assert himself, reclaim his identity, and prove he exists. On DVD and Blu Ray.

Sexual Politics

Because she is the illegitimate, mixed race daughter of a Royal Navy captain, young Dido Elizabeth Belle (Gugu Mbatha-Raw) is denied the full priveledge of her 18th century aristocratic family in Belle. Raised by her great-uncle Lord Mansfield (Tom Wilkinson), lord chief justice who presides over a series of cases questioning the legality of slavery, Belle’s family makes her a part of high society, but her race keeps her apart. When she meets social activist lawyer John Davinier (Sam Reid), he not only ignites her passion, but also awakens her taste for justice and equality. Set during the sea-change of Britian’s attitudes towards slavery, Belle begins to stand up to the system that would render her invisible. With Miranda Richardson. On DVD and Blu Ray.

Joined by a doctor (Julia Roberts) who can support Weeks’ passion with research, facts, and statistics, they fight against a system that rather ignore them as they die of a disease than admit the disease exists. With Taylor Kitsch.

Basil Rathbone was one of cinema’s greatest villains throughout the 1930s.  A British Army fencing champion considered by some to be the finest fencer in cinema— fundamentally more skilled than leading men Tyrone Power or Errol Flynn who defeated him onscreen— he only won one duel: as Tybalt in George Cukor’s Romeo & Juliet, winning Rathbone his first Oscar nomination.

He would set down his rapier and ascend from villainy to heroics when he claimed his most iconic role: Sherlock Holmes.

“I enjoyed swordsmanship more than anything because it was beautiful. I thought it was a wonderful exercise, a great sport. But I would not put it under the category of sport; I would put it under the category of the arts. I think it’s tremendously skillful and very beautiful… The only actor I actually fought with on the screen was Flynn, and that’s the only time I was really scared. I wasn’t scared because he was careless but because he didn’t know how to protect himself.”  —Basil Rathbone
