Z
dir. Costa-Gavras, 1969
I saw Z, directed by the young Costa-Gavras, at the Exeter Street Theater in Boston when it came out in 1969. I recommend the film because it is a first-rate thriller and a fitting accompaniment to the election of Richard Nixon that same year. As a senior in college, I had already participated in countless demonstrations in Boston, some of which became violent, and Z spoke to the outrage many Americans were feeling and to our heightened awareness of the corruption of those in power. I remember leaving the theater feeling a strong need to understand and challenge this realitya need I continue to feel.

DANNY SAYS
dir. Brendan Toller, 2015
DANNY SAYS is a-behind-the-scenes look at Danny Fields, a larger-than-life personality who helped bring acts like The Stooges, The Doors, The Ramones, Nico, and Judy Collins to major label attention. With amazing access to Fields and his archive, the origins of artists that transformed music as we know it are brought to the screen. Danny Fields is truly a national treasure and the film is as fun as it is informative.
