The makers of "The War Room" turn their cameras on yet another burgeoning political career. "Al Franken: God Spoke" is a cinema verité pursuit of Al Franken, shot over the course of two years, which follows the former "Saturday Night Live" comedian turned best-selling author and political satirist, from his highly publicized feud with Bill O'Reilly over Franken's blockbuster "Lies and the Lying Liars Who Tell Them" to his relentless campaign against George Bush and the Right Wing in the 2004 election, and beyond. Says Franken, "I take what they say and use it against them. What I do is jujitsu. They say something ridiculous and I subject them to scorn and ridicule. That's my job."

A documentary about the history of punk rock in America from 1980-1986. Generally unheralded at the time, the early 1980s hardcore punk rock scene gave birth to much of the rock music and culture that followed. There would be no Nirvana, Beastie Boys or Red Hot Chili Peppers were it not for hardcore pioneers such as Black Flag, Bad Brains and Minor Threat. Hardcore was more than music, it was a social movement created by Reagan-era misfit kids. The participants constituted a tribe unto themselves, some finding a voice, others an escape in the hard-edged music. And while some sought a better world, others were just angry and wanted to raise hell. "American Hardcore" traces this lost subculture, from its early roots in 1980 to its extinction in 1986.
