Billy Bob Thornton returns to star as criminal Santa impersonator Willie Stokes in this festive black comedy sequel. Still the same drunken, greedy guy, Willie and his sidekick Marcus (Tony Cox) conspire to make a big score this Christmas, by robbing a Chicago charity. This time they have some help, even if it is a little unwelcome, from Willie's mother, Sunny (Kathy Bates). She is as ambitious as she is crass, so she ought to fit right in. But things might get even more complex thanks to the involvement of the bombshell who runs the charity, Diane (Christina Hendricks). With a pure heart and a less than pure mind, Willie is smitten with her. The cast also features Brett Kelly and Ryan Hansen.
This is the first new translation in over forty years of Sade's
novel Justine. It is also the first ever critical edition, based on
the original 1791 version of the story, which is the most
accessible and artistically successful of the three versions. The
novel tells the story of the beautiful and devout Justine, whose
steadfast faith and naive trust destine her from the outset for
sexual exploitation and martyrdom. The unending catalog of
disasters that befall her, during which she is subject to any
number of perverse practices, illustrate Sade's belief in the
primacy of Nature over civilization. Virtue is no match for vice,
and as criminality and violence triumph, Justine is doomed to
suffer. Indeed, the novel mounts a ferocious physical and
intellectual assault on absolute notions of good and evil.
Book & CD. John Philip Sousa was the Beatles of his day -- America's first big superstar: conductor of over 14,000 concerts, composer of a hundred hit tunes, and author of three Broadway musicalsrunning at the same time! In 1900, he was the best-known musician in the world, living among presidents, corporate giants, and movie stars. Even today, millions hear and love his music. Schools, stages, highways, statues, and events are named after him. "The Stars and Stripes Forever" is the National March of the United States of America. Yet there was also a mystery about him: although he was the first to attempt a world tour with a 65-piece band, he never spoke to his audience. Just who was John Philip Sousa? This book tells the story about what made Sousa, SOUSA -- a story that his great-grandson John Philip Sousa IV is uniquely qualified to tell. This intimate portrait brings Sousa to life -- who he was, why he was driven to succeed, his love of country -- and explores his life and times through hundreds of photos, cartoons, short stories, news clippings, quotes, sheet music covers, and magazine ads, collected in family scrapbooks, the Sousa Archive in the Library of Congress, and U.S. Marines archives. This book also includes a bonus compact disc recording featuring The March King's most beloved works performed by his successors with "The President's Own" U.S. Marine Band and a rare archival track of Sousa's own voice, introducing his band and playing his beloved "The Stars and Stripes Forever". The book reveals a quintessentially American story: It is the story of being born to poor immigrant parents and through immeasurable hard work, talent, and self-motivated drive, succeeding beyond dreams. But it is also a very personal story of a man with a vision: a man who saw great music ultimately as being from the heart and who sought to bring this music -- not just his own -- to the world. This is a compelling portrait of a great American: a heartfelt story that will resonate for generations to come.

Placing Robbe-Grillet's filmic oeuvre in the related contexts of both his novelistic work and the different historical and cultural periods in which his films were made, from the early 1960s to the present, the book traces lines of influence and continuity throughout his work which is shown to exhibit a consistent preoccupation with an identifiable body of themes, motifs and structures. Close readings of all the films are skilfully combined with a thematic approach, ranging across the entire filmic corpus. The book also exceptionally contains chapters on cinematography and technique. Ultimately, this lucid, comprehensive and fascinating study shows Robbe-Grillet's contribution to the evolution of the cinematic art both in France and internationally to have been considerably more important than previously acknowledged.
