FOUR LIONS

This British comedy envisions a Jihadist cell made up of four of the dumbest human beings ever who carry on the War against Terror completely unarmed. While they aim to strike a decisive blow for the Jihad, mostly what they wind up doing is only striking a decisive blow….for comedy.

My Dog Tulip

(New Yorker) Starring the voices of Christopher Plummer, Lynn Redgrave, Isabella Rossellini, Brian Murray. This animated feature chronicles the 16-year relationship between author J.R. Ackerley and his four-legged friend as stated in his own memoir of the same title. A distinguished man of letters in British society back in the 1950s, he was anything but a dog lover until this outgoing and somewhat intolerable beast came into his life. Beautifully hand-drawn utilizing paperless computer technology, this feature is unlike anything you’ve ever seen before.
