Directed by Thomas Marchese with narration provided by The Shield alumnus Michael Chiklis, Fallen is a moving documentary that gives us some insight into police work and how they are impacted by their fallen service members.  After all, they are human.

A police officer might be killed every 2-3 days in the United States and depending on the news story of their day, their deaths could go unnoticed and that’s a tragedy in its own right.  What Fallen does is give us a look into eight officers who gave their lives to protect and serve.  Their story gets told by the people who knew them best in the communities where they served.


Nocturama is such a unique terrorism thriller and one that ought to be experienced on the big screen.

Written and directed by Bertrand Bonello, the film stars Finnegan Oldfield, Laure Valentinelli, Hamza Meziani, Manal Issa, and Robin Goldbronn.  Bonello proves to be a triple-threat as he scores the film menacingly, too.
