After Dark Film Series: It Might Get Loud

It Might Get Loud is a 2008 American documentary film by filmmaker Davis Guggenheim. 

"For rock geeks of any age or taste, the lore in this documentary will be catnip. But “It Might Get Loud” is more than a narrowly focused fan artifact. It gives those of us with tin ears and clumsy fingers a chance to linger in the presence of serious artists with formidable chops and big, if not always clearly expressed, ideas about what they do. And it will put you in the mood to listen." - The New York Times

After Dark Film Series: House of Flying Daggers

"Sublime, gorgeous, and action packed" - New York Daily News

In AD 859, as the Tang Dynasty declines, several rebel groups are established, the largest of which is the House of Flying Daggers, who battle the corrupt government that oppresses the people. Its members steal from the rich and give to the poor, gaining the support of the locals.

Two police officers, Leo (Andy Lau) and Jin (Takeshi Kaneshiro)—who are best friends—are ordered to kill the leader of the group within ten days, a task that appears to be impossible as no one knows who the leader of the House of the Flying Daggers is...

Strangers on a Train

"The abiding terror in Alfred Hitchcock's life was that he would be accused of a crime he did not commit. This fear is at the heart of many of his best films, including "Strangers on a Train" (1951), in which a man becomes the obvious suspect in the strangulation of his wife." - Roger Ebert

Pather Panchali

"This is my home too. But just look at it. It's like living in the jungle. Jackals prowling around as soon as night falls. No neighbors to sit and talk to. When you're not here, I'm terribly uneasy. But you wouldn't understand. You eat and sleep and go about your work, unconcerned whether you're paid or not. I had lots of dreams too. All the things I wanted to do..." - Sarbojaya Ray, Pather Panchali
