Reprising their hilariously fictionalized roles from TRISTRAM SHANDY: A COCK AND BULLSTORY, Steve Coogan and Rob Brydon reunite with director Michael Winterbottom for an acerbically witty trip through the English countryside. Coogan is asked by The Observer newspaper to travel through the Lake District and Yorkshire Dales, dining in fine restaurants and visiting various historic locations from the life of William Wordsworth. But when his girlfriend backs out on him, he has no one to accompany him on the trip. Enter Brydon, his best friend and source of eternal aggravation. After a half-hearted invitation where Coogan explains he's asked everyone else and that Brydon is his last resort, the two of them set off in the car, armed only with a map and incredible comic timing. They spend much of the trip trying to one-up each other with hilarious, canny dueling impersonations of Michael Caine, Liam Neeson, Sean Connery and Woody Allen to name a few. Largely improvised, the film follows the pair through foodie heaven as they stop at some of the best restaurants and inns in the north of England. Though the laughs never cease, the film still manages to reveal something about the nature of comedy, friendship and connection.
The puppets display their ridiculous science projects. Wordsworth wins by showing the dreams he's recorded of the "pure physical manifestation of my psyche's deepest aggression." Unfortunately, this monster breaks loose! Wonder Showzen is an absurdist comedy/variety show, spiked with a team of puppets, kids, cartoons, old educational films, politics, and vicious satire. The delightfully dark, yet smartly subversive hit takes your favorite things about watching TV as a kid and turns them into a twisted nightmare. And ust when you thought it was safe to think back on your childhood.
College-educated rapper Wordsworth rebuts GW's assurances that a vote for him is a vote for good.
Toting the ashes of the woman he believed to be his mother, Henry (Alec McCowen) is hustled away by his previously-thought-dead Aunt Augusta (Maggie Smith) to her London flat where he meets her live-in Wordsworth, (Louis Gossett Jr.), early in George Cukor's Travels With My Aunt, 1972.

Made by a grass roots co-operative of independent local community filmmakers, b-boys, DJ's, and MC's, this documentary takes us on a journey through the previously unexamined dimensions of hip hop as a spiritual and community based art form. Combining the best of independent art house cinema within the hip hop mix tape format, the film features legendary battles from New York to LA, including The Lyricist Lounge, Project Blowed, and The Wake Up Show! The artists featured in the film, from Mos Def to Notorious BIG provide insight into one of the least seen faces present in the music: improvisation and creativity.
