"Film is Lasagne" - rich metaphors from three Italian auteurs at the New York Documentary Film Festi

But the most magical moments and memorable quotes of the festival were so refreshingly funny that I nearly fell off my chair. Like the best of Italian cinema, the three distinguished Italian directors featured in tribute at the festival ...

Director: Helga Landauer.
The 20th Century begins. Carefree people roam from one attraction to another, laughing, flirting, renting boats and carriages, betting, smoking, playing with sand, changing clothes, flirting.

Big Mike Craft and the Meyer Lansky Plot To Kill Trudeau of Canada and Castro of Cuba

user
It was 1974 and Mr. Lansky was still pissed off at the World for not letting him buy it. I had been with Meyer since 1968, in my own world, in upstate N.Y. My mentor was my father, who worked for Meyer and Doc Farone, an old ally and bootlegger with Meyer. Doc was the first legitimate Molsen Beer Distributer in America. I learned in 68 that he had just used Molsen as a front to ship moonshine back into Canada. Doc would put me on errands with money to Ray Patriarca in Providence, R.I. and giv...
