This stir-it-upper from director Davis Guggenheim is basically a lecture by Al Gore about global warming, including a multimedia slide show and shots of the former veep on the road, giving speeches and plugging thoughts into his Apple computer on environmental issues that have obsessed him for two decades. Dull? Not a bit. It grabs you like a thriller with an ending that will haunt your dreams. Gore keeps us riveted by being charming, literate and profoundly persuasive on a topic that's scarier than anything in a dozen Japanese horror flicks. Vote Gore on this one.

    “Madame George”

    Van Morrison | 1968

    One of the first stream-of-consciousness epics to make it onto a Van Morrison record, his drawn-out farewell to the eccentric "Madame George" lasted nearly 10 minutes, combining ingredients from folk, jazz and classical music. The character that gave the song its title provoked speculation that it was about a drag queen, though Morrison denied this in Rolling Stone. "If you see it as a male or a female or whatever, it's your trip," he remarked. "I see it as a ... a Swiss cheese sandwich. Something like that."
