That Sugar Film
 That Sugar Film
In the tradition of Super-Size Me, Damon Gameau embarks on a unique self-experiment to document the effects of a high sugar diet on a healthy body, consuming only foods that are commonly perceived as ‘healthy’. Damon, an Australian filmmaker, highlights some of the issues that plague the sugar and fructose industry, and where sugar lurks on supermarket shelves. That Sugar Film will forever change the way you think about ‘healthy’ food. (90 mins)

"Mr. Gameau’s breezy blend of computer imagery, musical numbers, sketches and offbeat field trips makes the nutrition lessons easy to digest." – Daniel Gold, The New York Times

"Fast-paced, entertaining and informative." – Alissa Simon, Variety

Irrational Man
 Irrational Man
Woody Allen’s 45th film stars Joaquin Phoenix as tormented philosophy professor Abe Lucas who finds a will to live when he commits an existential act. Soon after arriving to teach at a small-town college, he gets involved with two women: Rita Richards (Parker Posey), a lonely professor who wants him to rescue her from her unhappy marriage; and Jill Pollard (Emma Stone), his best student, who becomes his closest friend. When she tries to make their relationship a romantic one, he rebuffs her. Pure chance changes everything when Abe and Jill overhear a stranger’s conversation and become drawn in. Once Abe makes a profound choice, he is able to embrace life to the fullest again. (R, 97 mins)

"Allen's dialogue is witty, his plotting zings along with forward momentum in all the right places, and his observation of elastic moral principles in flux is both mischievous and unsettling, yielding a tasty final-act Hitchcockian twist." – Davis Rooney, The Hollywood Reporter

"Allen has crafted a suspenseful mind-teaser that might feel too much like an intellectual exercise if Phoenix and Stone didn't infuse it with raw humanity. The conceptual bubble Allen creates in Irrational Man is potent provocation built to keep you up nights." – Peter Travers, Rolling Sone
