Lovelace

In the early 1970s, Linda Boreman became Linda Lovelace, and the world’s first porn star was born. The infamous Deep Throat actress became a veritable legend for her, ahem, unique talent. What’s less often attached to her tale of stardom, though perhaps assumed, is the tragic abuse she suffered by the hand of both of her husbands. Rob Epstein and Jeffrey Friedman’s biopic Lovelace (August 9), starring Peter Sarsgaard, Hank Azaria, a cast of star-studded cameos, and Amanda Seyfried as the title character, tells the gritty, grimy story behind the making of the most groundbreaking porno that ever was.

Narco Cultura

To a growing number of Mexicans and Latinos in the Americas, narco traffickers have become iconic outlaws and the new models of fame and success. They represent a pathway out of the ghetto – a new form of the American Dream, fueled by the war on drugs. NARCO CULTURA looks at this explosive phenomenon from within; cycles of addiction to money, drugs and violence that are rapidly gaining strength on both sides of the US/Mexican border.
