Years before The lord of the rings catapulted him to international superstardom, Viggo Mortensen played Wes, a young husband locked in co-dependent discontent with his beautiful and needy wife. Combining the theatrical surrealism of Beckett and Ionesco, the playfulness of Richard Lester, and the scathing social critique and imagery for which Majewski is renowned, The gospel according to Harry is a wholly original cinematic tour de force.

This sumptuous English-language '50s period piece recounts the mid-life years of Pulitzer Prize-winning poet Elizabeth Bishop (played by Miranda Otto, Lord of the Rings) when she left America to live and write in Rio de Janiero - where she would also fall in love with well-off architect Lota de Macedo Soares (butched up to the hilt by beautifully handsome Brazilian TV star Gloria Pires). Initial hostilities between the pair make way for a complicated yet long-lasting love affair that dramatically alters Bishop's relationship to the world around her.

J.R.R. Tolkien's The Lord of the Rings is the most popular work of fiction ever created. It is a tale of epic proportions held together by its unforgettable setting, Middle Earth. The great trilogy introduced the world to Gandalf, Frodo and Aragorn, but arguably the book's true star does not utter a single word. It is Middle Earth itself -- The Lord of the Rings' unforgettable setting -- that remains Tolkien's greatest achievement. This fascinating documentary takes us in Tolkien's footsteps and investigates the landscapes and buildings, the places and names that helped shape Middle Earth. Sir Ian Holm (Bilbo Baggins in The Fellowship of the Ring) narrates this fascinating exploration into an imaginary world that seems so real we pore over its maps and contemplate its journeys and its quests. Is this because the foundations of Tolkien's imagined world were inspired by very real places? Was there a real shire in the English countryside that inspired the Shire of Middle Earth? What influences shaped the darker and more troubled lands beyond its borders? How did European languages fuse in Tolkien's creative genius to create a vocabulary that evokes extraordinary places and heroic adventures? The quest for The Real Middle Earth takes us to England's west midlands, to Warwick and Oxford, to an ancient Lancashire school, to Saxon burial sites and many other places, including the real Dead Marshes, otherwise known as the Great War battlefields of the Somme.

For Students of European & Asian Medieval & Renaissance History. Narrated by world-renowned actor John Rhys-Davies (Indiana Jones, Lord of the Rings). Starring Viggo Mortensen, Karl Urban, Bob Anderson. Lord of the Rings stars join with Star Wars sword-master – Bob Anderson. Reclaiming the Blade is a documentary program steeped in history, the excitement of martial arts, the culture and craft of swords and modern day fight choreography. Devoted to sword martial arts and Hollywood stunt choreography, Lord of the Rings stars Viggo Mortensen, Karl Urban, John Rhys-Davies, John Howe and Richard Taylor join with legendary Hollywood sword master and fight choreographer Bob Anderson (Star Wars/Pirates of the Caribbean) to celebrate the history of the sword. The Medieval and Renaissance blade, a profound and beautiful object hand-crafted by master artisans of old. An object of great complexity, yet one with a singular use in mind – designed to kill. The truth of the sword has been shrouded in antiquity, and the Renaissance martial arts that brought it to being are long forgotten. The ancient practitioners lent us all they knew through their manuscripts. As gunslingers of the Renaissance they were western heroes with swords and they lived and died by them. Yet today, their history remains cloaked under a shadow of a legend. This program explores both European and Asian historic swordplay and offers an in-depth look at the fascinating world of stage combat on the silver screen. It includes a long overdue tribute to Bob Anderson who has trained countless Hollywood actors and choreographed many popular movie scenes featuring the sword. From the swashbuckling of Errol Flynn and Johnny Depp to Sean Connery's knightly duels, Anderson has worked with top film talent for over 50 years. Cloaked in the Darth Vader costume, Anderson performed and choreographed all the Lightsaber duels with Mark Hamill in George Lucas' early Star Wars trilogy. The filmmakers traveled three continents over ten different countries to interview and capture demonstrations by well trained practitioners and scholars. Delving into the historical martial arts of Europe and the recently discovered ancient Italian, German and Spanish manuals of sword fighting, Reclaiming the Blade sheds new light on a hitherto shadowy subject and period of history. This program holds, that the truth of the sword has been shrouded in antiquity and the Renaissance martial arts that brought it to being, are long forgotten. The film poignantly portrays the link between yesterday's history and tomorrow's future by reaching back in time to learn what they can from the ancient swordmasters. Dedicated to the modern practitioners and academics who seek to preserve the ancient traditions.".

Novelist and screenwriter, Peter Beagle maintains that screenwriting employs a logic different from that used in writing novels and describes it as having endless horizons but very little depth. Commenting on his novels, The Lord of the rings and The Last unicorn, he explains his own creative process as "85% conscious craft, 15% swamp." While he laments the fact that screenwriting keeps him from devoting himself more fully to writing novels, he considers himself successful and "a very lucky man."

"To the outside, Baringa appears bleak and remote: a converted army barracks in a dusty, isolated region of Australia, miles from the sea. It is hardly the place you would pick to start a new life, but for its inhabitants, it₂s where their dreams begin. Cate Blanchett (The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring, Elizabeth) guest stars in this touching series set within a fictional migrant camp in post-war Australia. Bordertown is a moving (and often comic) look at the lives, hopes and memories of one transient group of dreamers"--Container.
