It looks like a documentary, but filmmakers Huck Botko and Andrew Gurland are hunting something fierce and darkly funny in this story of an overweight doorman (the comically inventive Adrian Martinez) who orders an Asian bride (Eugenia Yuan) to cook, clean and act as his sex slave, and gets a scary surprise. Don't let anyone tell you more.

    “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."
