Starts Friday, October 18 at the Ken Cinema

I Am Trying to Break Your Heart chronicles the controversy surrounding the creation and release of "Yankee Hotel Foxtrot," the acclaimed new album from alt-country turned experimental rock band Wilco. Initially planning to follow the band's collaborative process, filmmaker Sam Jones soon had unexpected human drama and corporate intrigue to contend with when the band started breaking apart and the new album was rejected by their label.

Bowling for Columbine
Starts Friday, October 25 at the Hillcrest Cinemas

With his trademark charm and biting wit, filmmaker Michael Moore (director of Roger and Me and author of Stupid White Men) delivers an alternately humorous and horrifying view of firearms abuse in the United States. From a look at the Columbine High School security camera tapes, to a visit with NRA President Charlton Heston, to a young man who makes homemade napalm with The Anarchist's Cookbook, Moore's new film will resonate with anyone dreading—but expecting—the next breaking news report about a homegrown assassin.
