February 10, 2015 Crash (2005) presented by Dr. Donnie Kirk.
Crash is a crime drama about racial and social tensions in Los Angeles, California. The film was inspired by real-life events and yet differs from many other films about racism in its rather impartial approach to the issue. Rather than separating the characters into victims and offenders, victims of racism are often shown to be racist themselves in different contexts and situations. Also, racist remarks and actions are often shown to stem from ignorance and misconception rather than a malicious personality. Rated R
March 10, 2015 Moonrise Kingdom (2012) presented by Dr. Todd Giles.
Moonrise Kingdom is described as an "eccentric pubescent love story". Set on an island off the coast of New England in the 1960s, a young boy and girl fall in love and are moved to run away together into the wilderness. Various factions of the town mobilize to search for them and the town is turned upside down, which might not be such a bad thing. PG-13
April 14, 2015 Pulp Fiction (1994) presented by Dr. Brinton Tench Coxe.
Outrageously violent, time-twisting, and in love with language, Pulp Fiction was widely considered the most influential American movie of the 1990s. Director and co-screenwriter Quentin Tarantino delivers an unforgettable cast of characters – including a pair of low-rent hit men (John Travolta and Samuel L. Jackson), their boss’s sexy wife (Uma Thurman) and a desperate prizefighter (Bruce Willis) – in a wildly entertaining and exhilarating blend of crime-thriller-drama-comedy that is completely original and entirely unforgettable. Nominated for 7 Academy Awards® including Best Picture and Best Director. Rated R
