"Zip it" and learn the wild story behind the "Father of Trash Television" in this explosive documentary about the life and times of Morton Downey, Jr. As the late-1980s precursor to such polarizing media figures as Rush Limbaugh and Glenn Beck, the chain-smoking Downey perfected a brand of confrontational talk show discourse that took aim at "pabulum puking liberals," earning him legions of "loudmouths"...and the ire of countless others who still watched him loyally. 90 min. Widescreen; Soundtrack: English Dolby Digital 5.1; Subtitles: English (SDH), Spanish; audio commentary; featurettes; theatrical trailer.
Ah, those fabulous '70s...polyester, platforms, and the pervasive presence of disco music. This affectionate look back at a sound that rose and fell with its signature decade offers contemporary interviews and copious concert footage with many of the period's recording stars, including Thelma Houston, Gloria Gaynor, The Village People, Kool and The Gang, and many others. 85 min. Widescreen; Soundtrack: English.
If you think you've got a smart palate when it comes to wine, hold that thought until you check out this documentary that follows a quartet of oenophiles striving for one of the most unobtainable professional certifications on the globe--a Master's rank from the mysterious Court of Master Sommeliers. Will any of them make the grape--sorry, grade? 93 min. Soundtrack: English; audio commentary; featurettes; deleted scenes.
