Gary Leva wrote and directed this all-new, 30-minute documentary on the cultural impact of Stanley Kubrick's A CLOCKWORK ORANGE. Featuring Malcolm McDowell, Oliver Stone, Paul Greengrass, James Mangold, Christiane Kubrick and many others.
Gary Leva's two-hour feature documentary explores the rich cultural heritage of cinema in the San Francisco Bay area. Through interviews with such filmmakers as George Lucas, Francis Ford Coppola, Philip Kaufman, Saul Zaentz, Clint Eastwood, John Lasseter and many others, Fog City Mavericks uncovers the independent spirit and unique vision that characterizes this extraordinary collection of cinema pioneers.
The film also examines how the DNA of San Francisco affects -- and reflects -- the lives and work of its artists, mirroring the culture of individuality and innovation that makes San Francisco a unique creative community.
This documentary, narrated by James Earl Jones and featuring interviews with Spike Lee, Denzel Washington, Ozzie Davis, Martin Scorsese and many others, follows the film as its budget spirals out of control, prompting the studio to pull the plug. Undaunted, Spike Lee approached leading figures in the African-American community, including Oprah Winfrey, Bill Cosby and Michael Jordan, to provide the funding to complete the film. Lee’s commitment and his single-minded vision are the beating heart of this documentary, as we watch him risk his career and his reputation to make a film worthy of the name, Malcolm X.
Martin Scorsese, William Friedkin, Guillermo del Toro, John Carpenter and Eli Roth discuss Hitchcock’s influence on their own work, illuminating how his cinematic techniques have been embraced by directors to this day.
