Amazon Says: Inspired by true events, COMPLIANCE tells the chilling story of just how far one might go to obey a figure of authority. On a particularly busy day at a suburban Ohio fast food joint, high-strung manager Sandra (Ann Dowd) receives a phone call from a police officer saying that an employee, a pretty young blonde named Becky (Dreama Walker), has stolen money from a customer. Convinced she's only doing what's right, Sandra commences the investigation, following step-by-step instructions from the officer at the other end of the line, no matter how invasive they become. less...

Amazon Says: Los Angeles, 1949. Ruthless, Brooklyn-born mob king Mickey Cohen (Sean Penn) runs the show in this town, reaping the ill-gotten gains from the drugs, the guns, the prostitutes and - if he has his way - every wire bet placed west of Chicago. And he does it all with the protection of not only his own paid goons, but also the police and the politicians who are under his control. It's enough to intimidate even the bravest, street-hardened cop - except, perhaps, for the small, secret crew of LAPD outsiders led by Sgt. John O'Mara (Josh Brolin) and Jerry Wooters (Ryan Gosling), who come together to try to tear Cohen's world apart. less...

Amazon Says: Lius Bunuel's final film explodes with eroticism bringing full circle to the director's lifelong preoccupation with the darker side of desire. Bunuel regular Fernando Rey plays Matthieu an urbane widower tortured by his lust for the elusive Conchita. With subversive flare Bunuel uses two different actresses in the lead role- Carole Bouquet a sophisticated French beauty and Angela Molina a Spanish coquette. Drawn from Pierre Louys' 1898 novel La Femme et le Pantin That Obscure Object of Desire is a dizzying game of sexual politics punctuated by a terror that harkens back to Bunuels brilliant surrealistic beginnings. less...
