Springsteen and I
This documentary is like a love letter between Bruce Springsteen and his many fans.  He's still going strong at 63, exuding passion, joy, hope and heart in his performances.  You'll enjoy the great concert footage and personal video clips contributed by various fans on what their musical hero means to them.  (Available in select theatres; Genre: Documentary, Musical & Performing; Running Time: 1 hr., 45 min.)

A psychological thriller on killer whales in captivity.  The documentary raises the question of whether it's ethical to separate baby orcas from their mothers in the wild, penn them in to experience sensory depravation, immobilization and torture, then withold food as punishment to force them to perform "tricks" for the entertainment of paying audiences.  As a fact, orcas have never been known to hurt humans or seriously hurt other orcas in the wild.  Why then did Tilikum, a 32-year-old bull orca kill three people?  The truth told in the film is shocking. (Available in select theatres: Genre: Documentary, Special Interest; Running Time: 1 hr., 20 min.)

         Big Star: Nothing Can Hurt Me

This documentary is an eloquent tribute to Big Star, one of the most beloved and influential American cult bands of all time in the 1970s.  Many music critics raved about their music, which would be recognized today as indie pop rock. Despite inspiring countless acts like R.E.M. and Flaming Lips, Big Star became one of the biggest bands that never made it. When their dreams of overnight stardom failed, they called it quits in 1974.  (Available in select theatres; Genre: Documentary; Running Time: 1 hr., 40 min.)
