Middle East Conflict Film Suggestions

Hi There, Can anyone think of movies that deal with Middle East centric conflict from the 60's to now - possibly with one or two female protagonists, issues with child custody, royalty, Arafat? Or any great documentaries that show the 20th century history of the Israeli / Palestinian conflict? Thanks!

Where have all the movie plots gone?

Where are all the films which have queer characters whose sexuality is not the main point of the film? Action movies with lesbian heroes; courtroom dramas with transgender lawyers; road trip movies with gay buddies out for more than getting laid; science fiction/spooky stuff films with androgynous/intersex protagonists, I'm not fussed. Preferably ones where no one dies as a "punishment" for being queer. [more inside]

What happens outside of the courtroom?

Does anyone know if there are any people who work in the area outside of a courtroom? Maybe like security guards or someone like that? I'd like to show someone waiting for the doors of a courtroom to open and am trying to think of who might be there (besides someone who's especially interested in what's happening in there) Thanks so much!

Ways To Show Time and Place Visually

Hey There, I'm looking for ways that time and place are shown in movies without subtitles, i.e. on a newspaper headline, etc. Also, if you can include your favorite film or tv show that depicts the 60's and 70's that would be great! Thanks!

Help me exacerbate my mad writing crush on Nicole Holofcener!

Last night I saw Enough Said and it blew my mind with how great the writing was as well as the acting. What other movies would the Mefiverse recommend in this vein? What I liked about it was the characters were deeply defined and multi-layered, behaved as real people would in their circumstances, and held each other accountable for their actions. Bonus points for having a serious lack of Hollywood veneer lacquered over the top of the movie. [more inside]

Movies for a 7-year-old boy who likes innocent, silly and childish movie

I'm looking for recommendations for movies for a 7-year-old boy who likes 'em innocent, silly and childish. My son takes it to heart when the atmosphere is dark or a character is in jeopardy, so he hasn't much liked the kids' films I gravitate toward, like "Brave" and "How to Train Your Dragon." He's loved the entire series of Beethoven movies (yes, 1-5 inclusive, and we're going to watch 6 tonight!), and, to my amazement, he really enjoyed the 1994 "Little Rascals" movie. I would do anything to hear him giggle, even sit through dross like this. So what else in this vein can you recommend? [more inside]

Good mystery movies to watch?

I'd like to get some good mystery movie recommendations from the 80s on. It's OK if they veer toward the thriller, like Michael Clayton, ridiculous like Ford Fairlaine, noirish like Kiss Kiss, Bang Bang, or are a more standard outing with a strong, interesting, well developed detective lead like Zero Effect. Drawing room mysteries totally A-OK too. Super bonus points if I can stream them now on Hulu plus or Netflix.

Help me find this mysterious foreign film

Several friends and myself were sitting around draining the worlds supply of beer at the end of last summer, and decided to cap off the night by flipping on netflix.

What are some movies based on longform journalism stories? So far I'm coming up with Bernie (Midnight in the Garden of East Texas in Texas Monthly), 21 (Hacking Los Vegas in Wired), and Into Thin Air (Into Thin Air in Outside) but there must be more! (I think Into the Wild was a book first and not an article, but I could be wrong.) Both names of movies and links to the articles that inspired them would be most helpful.

Documentaries and other films about writers, libraries and books wanted!

I'm especially interested in films about writers of color and writers from the global south. Any kind of film is fine - need not be a documentary. But a progressive/radical/critical outlook is appreciated! Particularly looking for films that will appeal to an intelligent but not super-theorized audience - ie, that documentary about Derrida is not what we're looking for, and even the recent one about Zizek is an edge case.

How much are tickets for AFI Fest?

I've never been to a film festival, but I'm really curious about AFI Fest since I'm taking steps to move to Los Angeles in the next five years and I don't really travel (so I can't go to bigger, similar festivals like TIFF or NYFF). How much do the tickets cost? Do you have to buy a different ticket for each screening? I'm curious how much money I should budget if I want to attend.

Do I need to see Avengers in 3D and/or IMAX?

I'm pretty agnostic about 3D and IMAX both. But some films really should be seen 3D (e.g. Avatar) and/or IMAX (e.g. Dark Knight). So...if I view Avengers 2D and/or in non-IMAX, will I be missing out? Each option limits my field of showtime options (and increases expense)...
