"I take what they say and use it against them. What I do is jujitsu. They say something ridiculous and I subject them to scorn and ridicule. That's my job." -Al Franken
Brought to you by the makers of the Oscar(R)-nominated The War Room, AL FRANKEN: GOD SPOKE is an intimate and hilarious behind-the-scenes look at the life of the former Saturday Night Live comedian turned author, radio host, and political satirist. Go on the road with Franken as he wages his unrelenting one-man crusade against the hypocrisies and cynicism of the far right.
From the birth of the liberal Air America radio network to the floor of the Republic National Convention, there is no better tour guide through the tumult of recent American politics than Al Franken. Acclaimed directors Nick Dobb and Chris Hegedus provide a front-row seat to the entertaining and often absurd theater of America's partisan politics, while telling the story of Franken's transformation from irreverent gadfly of the American right to still irreverent potential Senate candidate. Including footage of his well-publicized dust-ups with Ann Coulter and Bill O'Reilly, AL FRANKEN: GOD SPOKE is a bitingly funny look at the culture of politics.

It didn't get any hotter than the summer of 1977 in New York City. As temperatures soared well into the hundreds for endless days, the city was seared by its own heat, sweat and energy. With the unrelenting swelter, things started to change in the city and it made everybody a little tense and crazy. Looters poured into the streets as a blackout plunged New York into darkness and fear; a mysterious psychopath began gunning down strangers in the night at random. With trademark virtuosity, filmmaker Spike Lee goes into the throbbing heart of the Bronx during this unbelievable summer to paint a portrait that is both intimate and panoramic. John Leguizamo, Adrien Brody, Mira Sorvino and Jennifer Esposito lead an ensemble cast in "Summer of Sam," which chronicles how Son of Sam's plague of terror disintegrated a neighborhood, turned friends against each other and transformed trust into dread. The summer of 1977 turned into the SUMMER OF SAM.
