Winner of the prestigious Golden Lion award at the Venice Film Festival, The Legend of the Holy Drinker is another classic from the great Italian director Ermanno Olmi (Il posto, The Tree of Wooden Clogs). Adapted from the novella by Joseph Roth, the film tells the story of Andreas Kartack, a homeless man living under the bridges of Paris. Lent 200 francs by an anonymous stranger, he is determined to pay back his debt but circumstances and his alcoholism forever intervene. Working with professional actors for the first time in more than 20 years, Olmi cast Ruger Hauer as Andreas and was rewarded with an astonishing performance of subtlety and depth. Hauer is joined by a superb supporting cast, including Anthony Quayle (Lawrence of Arabia), Sandrine Dumas (The Double Life of Veronique) and Dominique Pinon (Delicatessen).

In The Assassin, Derren asks - is it possible to hypnotise someone to carry out an assassination? The imprisoned killer of Robert Kennedy has claimed that the CIA programmed him to murder the senator. Are such claims remotely plausible, or just the stuff of conspiracy theorists? Derren looks for a profoundly suggestible member of the public, and secretly trains him to assassinate Stephen Fry. In The Gameshow, Derren hosts a fake game show designed to see how being anonymous and part of a crowd affects our sense of right and wrong. Filmed just before the British riots took place, this show offers a dark insight into mob mentality. An unwitting member of the public, out on a Friday night, must suffer the consequences of decisions made by a studio audience watching his every move.. In The Guilt Trip, an unsuspecting 'nice guy' is invited to take part in what purports to be a seminar in an old country hotel. He has no idea that everyone he meets is an actor, and that he is taking part in a TV show designed to see if he can be made to admit to a murder he did not commit. Even his hero, Tim Minchin, is in on the game. A weekend from hell awaits him.... In The Secret of Luck, an entire town is the subject of Derren's experiment. With the help of journalist Dawn Porter, a rumour is spread in a remote town that a local statue of a dog brings good luck. As the story takes hold amongst the townsfolk, we see what really separates lucky from unlucky people and how we can create good luck for ourselves. The journey culminates in one man betting his entire life-savings on the roll of a dice.
The Victorian era is remembered for many things, but one of the fondest is the wide and varied array of short, ghostly, suspenseful tales...often enjoyed around the fireside at Christmastime.

Nominated for a 2015 Grammy Award for Best Spoken Word Album The actors in James Franco's brilliant debut novel include a McDonald's drive-thru operator who spends his shift trying on accents; an ex-child star recalling a massive beachside bacchanal; hospital volunteers and Midwestern transplants; a vampire flick starlet who discovers a cryptic book written by a famous actor gone AWOL; and the ghost of River Phoenix. Then there's Franco himself, who prowls backstage, peering out between the lines—before taking the stage with fascinating meditations on his art, along with nightmarish tales of excess. "Hollywood has always been a private club," he writes. "I open the gates. I say welcome. I say, Look inside." Told in a dizzying array of styles—from lyric essays and disarming testimonials to hilariously rambling text messages and ghostly footnotes—and loosely modeled on Alcoholics Anonymous's Twelve Steps and Twelve Traditions, Actors Anonymous is an intense, wild ride into the dark heart of celebrity. 1.
