Fatal Instinct -- A spoof of the late 80s and early 90s suspense thrillers and murder mysteries, including Basic Instinct...
Fatal Instinct -- Director Carl Reiner has a comic go at the recent spree of erotic crime thrillers... Cop Armand Assante is assigned to investigate a 'kinky' murder. He is also, improbably, the prosecuting attorney.
I Stand Corrected -- Watch Jennifer Leitham perform and it s instantly obvious the tall striking redhead is an original. This world-famous jazz bassist plays her instrument left handed (something virtually unheard of in the profession) and when she takes center-stage standing to play rather than sitting her entire body seems to dance with the bass as her mane of long, fiery hair whips and bobs to the blistering pace set by her fingers. She is a special talent made all the more unique because Jennifer Leitham began her life and career when she was known as John Leitham.
I STAND CORRECTED, a compelling documentary from filmmaker Andrea Meyerson, charts Leitham s extraordinary rise to the top as a virtuoso of the upright bass and reveals how she risked it all with her decision to undergo sexual correction surgery. An intimate and compassionate study of Leitham s life, the film explores the self-doubts and fears she wrestled with as she rose through the ranks of an often homophobic jazz world, and celebrates the joy she discovered after embracing her female identity.
Weaving together before and after stills and footage, I STAND CORRECTED incorporates candid interviews with Leitham and several other jazz luminaries such as Tonight Show band leader Doc Severinsen and drummer Ed Shaughnessy, along with a broad variety of entertainers and friends of Leitham s including Roy McCurdy, Denny Tedesco, Sweet Baby J ai, Gary Chen, talent agent Dale Sheets and jazz entrepreneur Todd Barkin among others.
