NAPLES ’44 (2016): New Trailer For World War II Documentary Voiced By Benedict Cumberbatch, Adriano Giannini…

Directed by Francesco Patierno, Naples ’44 is a documentary about a British Intelligence Officer in Naples at the end of World War II. Based on Norman Lewis’s acknowledged masterpiece about a war-torn city and its unforgettable humanity, Benedict Cumberbatch and Adriano Giannini lend their voices to bring Lewis’s words to life…

The visuals in this trailer have me very intrigued indeed. They’re, in parts horrific, hugely disturbing but also undeniably beautiful all at the same time. I can’t wait to see it all together. I’m also looking forward to hearing Cumberbatch bring his vocal talent and presence to the  cause

Naples ’44 Release Dates: November 29th, 2017 (US)…

Cuba & The Cameraman is a Jon Alpert written / directed documentary about Cuba. The film features more than five decades of footage of the country and its people…

I’ve never been to Cuba and I’m not particularly yearning to go but I am curious about it. I want to find out what this documentary will reveal that friends who have visited Cuba haven’t told me. Also the story is told over 50 years!

In the Sari Gilman and Jacob Kornbluth directed Saving Capitalism, Robert Reich, the Former Secretary of Labor of the United States examines America’s fragile democracy and its fight for survival…

I’m into this one because as unappealing as the subject of politics is at the best of times, I want to know what Reich has to say about the present and future of democracy and capitalism. Will his point of view align with what the experts in The True Cost (2015) had to say and does he have a possible path to change outlined.

Jim & Andy: The Great Beyond – With a Very Special, Contractually Obligated Mention of Tony Clifton is a behind-the-scenes look at how Jim Carrey adopted the persona of idiosyncratic comedian Andy Kaufman on the set of Man on the Moon (1999)…

Yes. This documentary has one of the most awkward titles ever, but what’s one to do, really? I’m a Jim Carey fan so all I have to do now is make sure I watch Man On The Moon before I see this. That way I’ll also get to learn about Kaufman, a man I’ve heard of before by know very little about.

I doubt that there’s today a more highly respected name where nature documentaries are concerned than Sir David Attenborough. At least not in the United Kingdom. Following the success of Blue Planet (2001), Attenborough returns for a second dive into the powerful, unforgiving, yet beautiful and compelling ocean to give us access to the greatest and least known parts of our planet…

Watching this trailer really makes me wish that I were less of a wuss when it comes to underwater creatures. Thank goodness that I live in a time when I don’t actually have to go diving to know whats beneath the surface. I’ll be tuning in because Attenborough is brilliant, as are the stunning images in this trailer.

Tracked from the highest mountains to the remotest islands and exotic jungles and with the help of great filmmaking technology, seriously jaw-dropping footage awaits.

I’m basically in for the high quality images of Earth’s animals, both beautiful and scary. I mean… I just saw what happened with the snakes from precisely one minute into the trailer. Relaxing viewing that is not, but I’m ready.
