Klimt (2006) Trailer


Klimt is a 2006 Austrian art-house biographical film about the life of the Austrian 
Symbolist painter Gustav Klimt (1862–1918).

Watch the Trailer!

A character study and a meditation on art in a time of opulence and syphilis. Gustave 
Klimt (1862-1918) lies in hospital, dying. In reveries, he recalls the early 1900s: 
it's fin de siècle Vienna. At the World Exposition in Paris, Klimt meets Georges Méliès, 
who does a moving picture for him, and Klimt falls under the spell of a woman who
 may be Lea de Castro. We see Klimt in his studio; we meet his mother and sister,
 who suffer from mental illness. We watch Klimt the libertine. On his deathbed and
 as a younger man, he imagines things as well: encounters with ministers and waiters
 and with women who are willing participants in his pleasures. Is this the source of art?

Rush (2013) Trailer


Based on a true story.

Rush is a 2013 biographical sports drama film centered on the rivalry between race car drivers James Hunt and Niki Lauda during the 1976 Formula One motor-racing season.

Watch the Promo!

Two-time Academy Awardr-winner Ron Howard delivers the exhilarating true story of a legendary rivalry that rocked the world. During the sexy and glamorous golden age of Formula 1 racing, two drivers emerged as the best: gifted English playboy James Hunt (Chris Hemsworth, The Avengers) and his methodical, brilliant Austrian opponent, Niki Lauda (Daniel Brhl, Inglourious Basterds). As they mercilessly clash on and off the Grand Prix racetrack, the two drivers push themselves to the breaking point of physical and psychological endurance, where there's no shortcut to victory and no margin for error. Co-starring Olivia Wilde (TRON: Legacy), it's the heart-racing, epic, action-drama that critics are calling "one of the best movies of this, or any, year" (Pete Hammond, Movieline).
