Opens Friday, Aug 19, 2011 Synopsis: Celebrated writer and director John Sayles uses America's occupation of the Philippines at the dawn of the 20th century as an analogy for several more recent political and military blunders in this period drama. It's 1900, and Rafael (Joel Torre) is the leader of a village in the Philippine countryside. Rafael is well respected by the locals for his sense of decency and fair play, and as the United States military takes control of the islands, Lt. Compton (Garret Dillahunt) is eager to work with him in an effort to win over the people. However, since Rafael and Compton don't share a common language, they must use Padre Hidalgo (Yul Vázquez), a local preacher who doesn't trust the American colonizers, as an interpreter, while Compton's commander, Col. Hardacre (Chris Cooper), is openly contemptuous of the Filipinos. Meanwhile, as Rafael tries to maintain a fragile peace for his people, his brother Simon (Ronnie Lazaro) has organized a band of rebels determined to protect their homeland and drive the Americans out, and Rafael finds his loyalties sorely tested. Amigo received its world premiere at the 2010 Toronto International Film Festival. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi Cast: Joel Torres, Garret Dillahunt, Chris Cooper, D.J.

Opens Friday, Aug 5, 2011 Synopsis: In 1964, Ken Kesey was an author who had published two popular and critically acclaimed novels, One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest and Sometimes A Great Notion. At the same time, Kesey also had a strong bohemian streak and in the late 1950s had been a volunteer in a research experiment sponsored by the United States military on the effects of an unusual new drug called LSD. Kesey came to believe the LSD experience had the power to reshape America's psychological and spiritual landscape, and he continued using it with a handful of trusted friends and colleagues. In 1964, Kesey and several of his fellow psychedelic explorers -- including Neal Cassady, a close friend of Jack Kerouac who helped inspire the book On The Road -- bought a 1939 International Harvester school bus, fixed it up with bunks, painted it with bright, abstract designs, and set out on a cross country voyage to explore America and share their new vision with those they met. In time, Kesey and his "Merry Pranksters" were credited with launching the counterculture revolution of the 1960s, and as they traveled from place to place, they documented their adventures on 16mm film. However, due to sound synchronization problems, the footage was never edited into useable form, but filmmakers Alex Gibney and Alison Ellwood have used this material as the basis for a documentary on the journey of the Pranksters and its cultural influence. Magic Trip: Ken Kesey's Search For A Cool Place explores the history behind Kesey and his group, offers a look at their experiences on the road, and includes footage of some of the friends they encountered en route, including Allen Ginsberg, Jack Kerouac and a rock band called The Warlocks who would later change their name to The Grateful Dead.
