Cool Hand Luke -- A man refuses to conform to life in a rural prison.
Cool Hand Luke -- When Luke Jackson is arrested for drunkenly vandalizing parking meters, he is sentenced to serve time on a prison chain gang.
Ugoku -- Ugoku means simply move. It doesn t pretend to have a plot, but develops a sort of undiluted visual and sonic drama instead. Pounding rhythms and well over a thousand elaborately altered and combined, mostly hand-colored clips rise to crescendo after crescendo in a Himalayan range of peak experiences. A bizarre legion of ever-evolving characters culled from hundreds of found footage sources move with heart-pounding, eye-popping precision to intense beats while kaleidoscopic arrays of colors explode like digital mescaline. This Warhol meets Escher hybrid film+animation unfolds in a surrealistic, multi-dimensional vortex that gives 'rock the body' a new meaning. Every element of each image: movement, gesture, color, tempo, etc., is reanimated and synchronized to specific sounds in the music, creating layered and hypnotic psychotropic rhythms which in a normal state of consciousness would go otherwise unnoticed. Objects and characters are placed in unexpected contexts and tiers revealing entirely new structural formations, penetrating meanings and subliminal interpretations. 'Like a Tool video on acid.'

Trailer for Murder, Inc..
It's the mid-1930's Brooklyn. Nightclub singer Joey Collins, newly married to a chorus girl named Eadie, is having problems paying off his loan shark, Abe Reles. Reles will wipe the slate clean if Joey 'introduces' him to Joey's friend, Catskills based comic Walter Sage, with who Reles has unnamed business. Joey agrees despite knowing that Reles is planning on roughing up Sage. Joey learns the hard way that Reles is a hit man when Reles instead kills Sage in cold blood. Reles is part of the Brownsville Group - or what would be later dubbed by the press as Murder Incorporated - that works for a crime syndicate. Reles is under exclusive contract to crime boss Louis 'Lepke' Buchalter to carry out whatever murders required. Joey and Eadie, now knowing too much about Reles' business, are at a loss on what to do to protect themselves. Things for all concerned change when prosecutor Thomas E. Dewey is appointed to head a special commission against the crime syndicate, Dewey who could subpoena any suspects or witnesses to testify at Grand Jury hearings. Choosing not to testify, Lepke goes into hiding where he meets the Collinses, and increases the killings against anyone who may rat on him at the hearings. With crusading new Assistant DA for Brooklyn Burt Turkus taking a tough stance on the unsolved murders and working with longtime Brooklyn Police Sgt. William Tobin, Lepke believes he could be in for trouble unless he gets rid of those who may know too much, including many in the Brownsville Group - including Reles - and the Collinses. As their previous stance of cooperating with Reles and Lepke seems to get them in deeper and deeper, Joey and Eadie reevaluate what to do to save themselves.
