and "Thug Life In DC." Here is my list of what I have:
~~REAL LIFE DRUG DOCUMENATRIES~~
High on Crack Street: lost Lives In Lowell
Once a thriving manufacturing center, Lowell Massachusetts provides
case study in the aftermath of the factories closing down. It follows
three longtime residents, Boo, Brenda, and Dickie, all of whom are
hooked on crack. They move in and out of rehabs, crack houses, and
jails, hopeless and lost. Great moments of true realistic drama.
"Cinema verité" of superb quality. No guidance, no judgment, just
direct observation. Its like a fly on the scene! Great documentary,
very rare and hard to find. $25.00
Small Town Ecstasy: Runs about 1 and 1/2 hours long, focuses on a
family who's Dad is hooked on Ecstasy. He even gives it to his 13 year
old kid to use, and condones his other teenage children's using the
drug openly in front of him. In one scene he gives his 13 year old son
money to buy Ecstasy! Divorced from his wife, he engages in somewhat of
a Shows people at raves using X, smoking pot, and other drugs.
The Agony Of Ecstacy:
Examines the effects of the drugs, how it is manufactured, and
distributed. Undercover video at raves is shown. Great inside look at
this drug. $10 by itself, or $7 with purchase of "Small Town Ecstacy"
Black Tar Heroin: The Dark Side: Ran on HBO in the 90's about black tar
heroin and it's users. Gripping documentary about homeless street
people who shoot heroin, a drug primarily available on the West coast
of the US. Includes 2004 updates, and interviews. $25.00
Follows a man in the 80's as he lives a squalid life in the South
Bronx. He is a full blown heroin addict at the age of 29, and looks
astonishingly older than that. Stealing daily to support his habit, he
is estranged from his wife and kids, but sees them on occasion. His
wife desperately tries to hide their fathers addiction from her kids.
In jail he gets a chance at Rehab. Does he make it? In the final scene
we see Junior say, "If anyone offers you drugs, remember what happened
to me." This movie was one of the first HBO undercover documentaries,
it ran one time, and has not ran since. Filmed in 1981, it is extremely
rare, and excellent documentary, and impossible to find. (Copy of this
DVD and VHS is Great!) $30.00
American Justice (1 hour long): follows several heroin & crack addicts
through their lives. Is graphic and shows them smoking crack, and
shooting heroin. Undercover video shows them making drug deals and
buying drugs. Focuses mainly on 3 women, who are obviously unhappy with
their addictions, but don't know how to stop using. Shows one girl who
is a dancer going through rapid opiate detox, a way to get heroin out
of your system in less than 12 hours. Also has a segment on New Jersey
Dr. Lance Gooberman, who was in the news for the deaths of several of
his patients. $15
Rehab: Camp Recovery, located in the coastal town of Santa Cruz, Cal.,
features a mix of new and long-term addicts, most of whom stay for 30
days (the maximum allowed by most insurance companies). REHAB
chronicles their experiences in the center and follows them out into
the less-supervised, far more dangerous, "real" world, riding the
emotional tidal waves that accompany incremental progress and
devastating relapses. The film offers a rare insider's look at the ups
and downs of each addict's journey to stay clean. Shows heroin addicts
going through rehab, and what their families go through. It is graphic,
and once again shows people shooting up and getting high. Some make it
through rehab, some don't. This is a very compelling film, powerful and
graphic. Runs about 1 and 1/2 hours long. $20.00
Dope sick Love: Follows 2 homeless couples living on the streets of New
York. Runs over an hour long, and shows them smoking crack, shooting
crystal meth, and shooting heroin. They fight, they hustle for money,
they run scams that are brilliant to get cash, then blow it all on
drug- lots of drugs. They get into physical fights in the middle of
crowded streets as they live a day-to-day bare bones existence on the
streets of New York. It has some graphic sexuality, as the men
prostitute themselves to other men for sex- and it does show oral sex
actually being done, so it may need to be edited if shown in a
classroom or to a younger teen. $25
Crank Made In The USA: . Shows meth (AKA) crank and speed use. Runs one
hour long and is graphic. Shows users shooting up, snorting, etc.. Is
graphic and follows several "crank heads" over a year or so. Shows the
effects of methamphetimines on the body and mind, and what law
enforcement is doing to stop it. Great movie and superb filming. $25
Life of Crime 1 (One Year in a life of Crime)
This is the 1989 prequel to Life of Crime 2. It follows Freddie and Rob
from Life of crime 2, but it was filmed in 1989, when they were
professional shoplifters. Follows them shop lifting, using drugs, and
abusing their live in girlfriends. VERY rare movie, ran on HBO in 1989,
and is not available anywhere. Graphic as it does show one man
commiting domestic violence. $25
Life Of Crime 2: This one is by the same guy that did "Dope Sick Love."
This one is VERY rare- it was filmed in 1993, and you can't find it
anywhere on the net. It is 2 hours long, and follows three addicts for
several years. One is a Mom with 3 kids, and she starts shooting heroin
and loses her kids. You see her go from an attractive women raising her
kids (with somewhat questionable parenting), to a burnt out street
junkie who lost her kids, is constantly shooting 'speedballs', and the
kids checking her arms for track marks and begging their Mom to stay
clean to get them back. The other two addicts the movie follows are
guys who are fresh out of jail. It shows one guy (Freddie) going in for
an aids test- and getting a positive result, then shooting heroin into
an ulcerated leg wound (his arm veins are long gone). It shows the
other guy (Rob) going from a 200 pound healthly-looking clean cut man
working a job, to a 130 pound street junkie, with long hair, and aged
face, nodding on heroin, homeless, in an empty lot full of trash. It's
a great film, shot just like "Dope Sick Love," but longer and more
detailed. it also runs 1 hour longer than dope sick love- 2 hours
total. It is an outstanding movie, very rare and impossible to find.
Shows a lot of graphic drug use. $25.00
This is a show on family interventions for drug addicts. I have almost
every single episode of this show, as it is the only shows that shows
the process of interventions. Each show runs one hour long, and the
shows active addicts using drugs, and the effects it has on thier
families. The addicts have agreed to be in the documentary, but what
they don't know is they will be part of an intervention at the end of
the show. Instead of going to the "final interview", they are instead
met with family, and asked to enter treatment. It goes in depth into
how to stage an intervention, which very often is successful. If you,
or someone you know has a family member on drugs, this could be
invaulable to help. Each episode is $10, or $7 each if you buy more
than 3. Email me for a full episode list, I have episodes on bulemia,
meth addiction, crack cocaine, powder cocaine, heroin users, pain
pills, gambling, pot, alcohol, rage addicts, and even video game
addicts. GREAT SHOW!
~~EDUCATION ON SUBSTANCE ABUSE/DRUGS)~~
This is one one of the best and one of the only documentaries I have
seen on how drugs, poverty, and neglect affect children before and
after they are born. Follows several children who have been damaged by
thier parents drug abuse and neglect, some before they were even born.
Shows one lady smoking crack at 8 months pregnant, and prostituting to
support her habit. Also shows a boy with Fetal Alcohol Syndrome, and
how it affects him at age 9 and up. Also goes into the problems of
inter city children, often deeply affected by the violnce and murders
going on around them. Absolutly great documentarie. $15
Hooked: illegal drugs and how they got that way (Cocaine): Runs one
hour long. Shows how cocaine was made, introduced into the US, the
history of cocaine and why it was made illegal. Fascinating and
informative look at drugs and the laws that started the "war on drugs"
that the government had failed so miserably at. $10
Hooked: Illegal Drugs: Opiates
Examines the history of opiates, from the opium dens of the early
1900's, how opiates were invented, and became illegal. Examines Heroin,
morphine, laudinum, and opium smoking. Very interesting. $10 by itself,
or $7 with the purchase of "Hooked: Cocaine"
Addiction: Grey Matters
Very clinical and inside look at how drugs affect the brain. Would be
interesting for people in the medical field, or people wanting to learn
exactly how substance affect brain activity. $10
World of Abnormal Psycology:
Examines the psycological effects of drug use on the brain. Interviews
addicts, and explains why addiction graps such a strong grip on people.
This is an excellent tape for counselors, teachers, and just about
anyone who wants to understand the disease of addiction. Very good
Methadone and Pregnancy: Shows a women who got off of heroin using
methadone, and is now pregnant. Shows the effects methadone has on the
baby, and how she handles staying clean during her pregnancy. 1/2 hour
Smashed Toxic Teens and alcohol:
This is a blunt and harsh look at the effects teenagers and alchol.
Profiles one boy who slams into a tree on an ATV after drinking, and is
almost brain dead on arrival at the emergency room. Follows him and his
family throuhg his long recovery process. Interviews teen survivors of
druk driving accidents, both drivers AND passengers, and their long
term damage and what it has done to their families and their lives.
This is EXCELLENT for the parent of a teenager, any teenager whether
they drink or not. It will make almost anyone think twice before
drinking and driving, or getting into a car with someone who has.
Party Monster: the story of the "club kids" and Michael Alig: If you
saw the movie "Party Monster" with MaCauley Culkin and Seth Green, you
will like this show. It is "American Justice," and shows an in-depth
look at Michael Alig and James St. James, and the 80's and 90's "club
kids" that partied and did cocaine, heroin, and ecstasy all night.
Shows drug use caught on tape. Goes into the murder of Angel Melendez
(Michael's drug dealer), and how and why it was done. $10
~~GANG DOCUMENTARIES ~~
Latin Kings: A Street Gang Story
Assembled by award-winning documentarian Jon Alpert, Latin Kings: A
Street Gang Story is primarily a "biography" of the notorious New York
gang's ex-leader, Antonio "King Tone" Fernandez. Under house arrest at
the time of filming, Fernandez insists that he has experienced an
epiphany, and that upon his release he intends to transform his gang
into a peace-loving, community activist group. His words are contrasted
with the violent activities of the Latin Kings during the final years
of the 20th century, as captured on police surveillance tapes. Latin
Kings: A Street Gang Story was originally telecast as part of HBO's
America Undercover anthology. You get to see the gang members in
everyday life, and "King Tone" AKA Anthony Fernandez allows Alpert into
every crevice of his life, including how the gang works, inside
meetings, his kids, his Mom and Dad's house, and his wife Myrna.
Gang Wars: Banging in Little Rock" Ran on HBO in the 90's about gang
members in Little Rock Arkansas. This film is a beautiful first hand
look into street gangs as we know it with a unique twist. . . it's not
inner city youth. Gangs are thought to be confined to America's inner
cities, affecting mostly Black and Latino youth, but this opens your
eyes to what's not publicized, which is the fact that white suburban
youth are "gang-bangers" also. Ultimately this documentary reveals a
lot about the underbelly of the city where our last ex-president hails
from. A must-see if you're a fan of HBO documentaries. Actual drive by
shootings are documented, and takes you deep inside the world of the
"Crips", "Folks" and the "Bloods" as you have never seen it before.
Two hour special that ran on the A&E channel. Goes into the history of
gangs, and the forming and organization of gang life. Shows the
evolution of the first gangs that started in New York, up until the
gangs of today. Very interesting indepth look at gang life, and the
inner workings of gang life. $15
~~JAIL/PRISON DOCUMENTARIES (ALSO COVERS GANGS)~~
Locked-up The Prisoners of Rikers Island:
With 20,000 inmates, Rikers Island is the worlds largest jail. Located
just six miles from the Empire State Building, it's a city within a
city. Each night in this jail cost New York Tax payers more than a
night's stay at the Waldorf Astoria. It is an unflinching look at
inside a prison, but women and men, some of the women pregnant. Touches
on gangs inside prison, namely the Latin Kings. Powerful and hard to
Lock-Up:Return to Rikers Island:
MSNBC returns to Riker's Island in 2003 to see how the tough prison has
re-invented itself. Due to a "re-arrest" policy, prisoner violence is
down 90%. Yet it is the one of America's worst prisons, with violence
and rapes happening on a daily basis. Goes inside prison gangs, such as
Latin Kings. Runs 1 hour. $10 by itself, or only $7 with the purchase
of "Prisoners Of Rikers"
Xiara's Song: (by the director of Sleepy Hollow)
Xiara Trujillo is a precocious seven-year-old who moved from the Bronx
to Maryland with her mom, Aracelli Guzman, four years ago. Though she
seems happy hanging out and playing with her pal Melissa, Xiara becomes
defensive and emotional when talking about her father, Harold Linares.
Harold is in jail serving a ten-year sentence for weapons possession;
Xiara seems to blame his incarceration on her mother, whom she says
"kept calling the police." Xiara, who has always been extremely close
to her father, acts out with her mother. As we get to know Harold in
prison, we find that he has ambitions to be a hip-hop star, and loves
to sing rap songs whenever he talks to Xiara on the phone, or when she
comes to see him in prison (the jail is in DC, only a few miles away).
For her part, Xiara shares her father's love of music, and composes her
own rap songs that she sings back at her father. $20.00
Girls In Trouble: Juvinile
This is a one hour special that goes behind the locked doors of
juvinile facilites, following several girls through the system. Focus
on girls in their early teens in the California system, some of whom
are gang members. Very good show that takes you inside the jails, and
shows whether the girls continue on to adult jail, or straigten up and
go straight. $10
~~SERIAL KILLERS/ CRIME DOCUMENTARIES~~
The Ice Man Confesses: Confessions of Mafia Hit Man:
This is fascinating documentary about Richard Kuklinski, who was hit
man for the Gambino crime family. He lived a double life, one with his
family, wife, and kids in a quiet suburban home, the other where he was
a murderer for hire- he killed over 100 people in his career as a hit
man. Kuklinski holds nothing back in this unflinching interview.
Details of murders, time, places, the why and how. He tells all of his
crimes in grim detail, and he shows little remorse. He tells the
interviewer the stories of his murders as if he were giving her some
normal tips on life. Often times, Kuklinski even makes jokes when he
was asked if he ever felt remorse for killing someone. Kuklinski is in
jail, and will never get out. With nothing to lose, he opens up to HBO
Undercover, and tells why he killed people, and how he felt when he
killed people. Surprisingly, Kuklinski, though cold and unemotional,
comes across as very normal, and almost likable at times, a duality so
rarely seen in killers. Truly one of the great documentaries ever made
about a murderer. $20.00
Aileen Wournos: The Selling Of A Serial Killer:
This is a documentary about a women and her lawyer who "adopt" the
adult Aileen Wournos, America's first femal serial killer. Originally
claiming they wanted to help her, in this indepth movie, thier motives
are somewhat questionable as they wish to get paid for access to the
killer. The fimaker goes into Aileen's killings, evidence, the deal the
police made for money for the rights to the movie, and more. He
interviews people close to her, and gets to the real motives of the
cops, and the people who wish to "help" her. Includes actual news
footage of the hunt for the killer, and finally an interview with
Aileen herslef. This is made by Nick Broomfield, the same man who did
Aileens final interview, and made the movie "The Life and Death Of a
Serial Killer" and "Kurt and Courtney" $15.00
Aileen Wournos: Biography
a one hour special on the serial killers life and death. Never before
seen photos of Aileen, and her ex-lover Tyrea Moore. Interviews with
Tyrea, her best friend, and he lawyers. Very intersting, with
information not on any other special I have seen on her. $10 by itself,
or $7 with the purchase of "Selling of a Serial Killer"
~~SOCIAL ISSUE DOCUMENTARIES~~
A gripping documentary about life in the South, and the legacy of the
great-great grandchildren of slaves. They are uneducated, and living in
extreme poverty. No running water, and struggling to raise children in
grim and harsh conditions. Focuses on LaLee, an elderly women
struggling against extreme poverty to hold her family together, while
raising 5 of her grandchildren. Unable to even afford pencils for them
to go to school, she still finds the strength to carry on. Her 5
grandchildren are struggling to be educated, not even knowing what a
"Nintendo" is. Gripping documentary. Rare and impossible to find.
This documentary follows two inner-city Chicago residents, Arthur Agee
and William Gates, as they follow their dreams of becoming basketball
superstars. Beginning at the start of their high school years, and
ending almost 5 years later, as they start college, we watch the boys
mature into men, still retaining their "Hoop Dreams". Both are
recruited into the same elite high school as their idol, former Detroit
Piston superstar Isaiah Thomas. Only one survives the first year; the
other must return to a high school closer to his home. Along the way,
there is much tradegy, some joy, a great wealth of information about
inner city life, and the suspense of not knowing what will occur next.
This is not a "by-the-numbers" film. $15.00
Living Dolls: The Making of Child Beauty Queen:
This poignant documentary follows the fortunes and adventures of a
five-year-old aspiring beauty queen in a world where pancake makeup,
catwalk routines and ambitious stage parents are par for the course.
Propelled by her mother, who guides her with military precision, Swan
Brooner is determined to reach the top. Filming over the course of 2
years, the director takes viewers from Swan's early rehearsals to a
winning streak at the state pageant level to her toughest
competition-for a national crown. This documentary is terrific
because it is invisible -- it simply allows the pageant world to speak
for itself. There are no comments by the filmmakers, who limit their
involvement to a series of titles every so often that just establishes
the setting or provide a fact. They do a pretty amazing job of piecing
together what feels like a neutral "just the facts, ma'am" film
allowing the viewer to draw his or her own conclusion on child beauty
Dwarfs: Not a Fairy Tale:This film is a documentation of people who
want the world to see their courage in dealing with short stature;
through this documentary, these individuals prove that they can rise
above the derogatory term "midget". We see them having fun, getting
married, and pursue any career of choice. As an averaged size person,
you begin to realize, there is no "norm" and a shorter person is just
as able to handle every day activities. This film is great, and asserts
that with a few alterations and adjustments, the spirit of a human
being is indomitable, and one can achieve anything he desires, despite
his or her height. $20.00
Twist Of Faith: This Oscar-nominated and Sundance-selected feature
documentary tells the deeply personal story of a man who confronts the
trauma of past sexual abuse by a local priest. When we first meet Tony,
he seems to have it all: great job, pretty wife named Wendy, two
adorable kids, and a beautiful new house. But Tony is just beginning to
come to grips with a past he's buried for twenty years, and is no
longer able to contain. The constant barrage of news related to sexual
abuse, coupled with a disturbing discovery in his personal life, causes
Tony to confront his demons. $25.00
E! True Hollywood Storys:
~~~~The Wonderland Murders and John Holmes:
This is a very rare E True Hollywood Story, runs 2 hours longs, and is
facinating. Goes in depth into the murders of the Wonderland crew, and
the life of JOhn HOlmes. This is NOT on the DVD movie "Wonderland" with
Val Kilmer, this was made before the making of the "Wonderland" movie,
and has a wealth of information about the murders and people involved.
Actual footage of John Holmes, Bob Chinn, Eddie Nash and his bodyguard,
and many more. Has very rare pictures of the real Joy Miller (including
ones with her kids), real photos of the wonderland victims, and footage
of the real David Lind. Has TONS of photos of John Holmes, including
childhood photos, early photos of him and his wife. If you are a
Wonderland, John Holmes, or Adult Movie fan, this is a must have
special, rare and tons of information. $20.00
~~~~~~The Poltergeist Curse:
Examines the mishaps and mysterious circumstances that plagued the
shoot of this Steven Spielberg movie. Interviews with the actors, and
