    'Superheroes': A Look at the Lives of Real-Life Caped Crusaders

    On HBO, looks interesting, missed the first airing, but set the DVR for later/
    Review: ‘Superheroes’ An Intriguing But Unquestioning Look At Real Life Crimefighters > The Playlist

    Running a little under ninety minutes, and despite its approach which leaves you wishing the film were another half hour longer, “Superheroes” is nonetheless a compelling overview at a fast growing underground effort that is beginning to make a mainstream impression. But it’s the story of husband and wife team Zetaman and Apocalypse Meow (awesome name) that will linger with you. The former suddenly announced one day he was going to hit the streets in an effort to affect change and the latter proposed an ultimatum: take her along or don’t go at all. The result? Together they put together and deliver packages with their own money with basic essentials for the homeless and disenfranchised in their town. It’s something many of the heroes we meet during the film begin to realize—that simple acts of humanity are just as meaningful (and in some cases more so) as trying to catch a master criminal. As a viewer you’ll realize this is something you can do too. And you know what? You don’t even need a mask. [B-]

    Watch: 3 Powerful Clips & New Photos From Werner Herzog’s Death Row Documentary ‘Into The Abyss’ > The Playlist

    TIFF has unveiled three clips from the film and they are powerful, compelling peeks at the upcoming film. The documentary will delve into the lives of a pretty hardened bunch, focusing on two men convicted of triple murder, another who killed his girlfriend and her two mentally retarded sons, and a woman—one of only 10 on Texas’ death row—charged with abducting a newborn baby and killing the child’s mother. But it’s not just the perpetrators of the crimes getting face time with Herzog as he also reaches out to their families as well as the victims in what promises to be a unique and mesmerizing portrait of the ripple effects of crime and punishment.

    Really want to see this.

    Was watching this @ 5:42 am and was completely absorbed. This is must watch stuff, really. If you have DirecTv you can probably get it offa on demand already. Highly recommend, if for nothing else than to make you feel better about your life. Good double feature with Confessions of a Superhero which should be on Netflix by now.

    Emma Thompson Signs On As Another Narrator For Terrence Malick’s ‘Voyage Of Time’ Documentary

    It’s the first we’ve heard of multiple narrators for the project, with Brad Pitt already expected to lend his voice to the film and it will be Thompson’s first time working with the director.

    Last we heard about the film—that was ambitiously planned to be concurrently released with “The Tree Of Life”—Malick was planning to utilize footage obtained during the production of “The Tree Of Life” in addition to shooting new footage for the project. The scope of the film will be massive, with the film said to encompass “the first signs of life, bacteria, cellular pioneers, first love, consciousness, the ascent of humanity, life and death and the end of the universe.” We’d guess that a different narrator will be utilized to voice each section of the documentary, so perhaps a few more names will come into the mix in the next little while.
