Directed by Samantha Peters.
A shy Jewish boy from Brooklyn, New York goes through a life-long quest to discover himself through his music.
Back in 2010 BBC Two produced a 60 minute documentary about an American songwriter who did not truly discover his own voice until he began recording and performing his own music; the individual in question is Neil Diamond who has experienced a bumpy road personally and professionally on the way to selling over 125 million records worldwide.
Fascinating is the family home movie taken in 1941 which shows proud parents Rose and Akeeba "Kieve" Diamond leaving the hospital with baby Neil in their arms. A fun moment occurs when a demo tape is played over the footage of the Puerto Rico Day Parade in New York City where Neil Diamond recruits his »
There've been complaints that last night's American Idol, themed around the hits and performances of past Idol winners, was old-fashioned and schmaltzy. Hey, morons: That's why I watchAmerican Idol. I want ancient, Wayne Newton-y performances from Mormon teenagers in pain. I want the new Rosemary Clooney to woo me in a collared denim dress that her great-grandmother weaved.

From 1966 comes Sting of Death, South Florida b-movie maestro William Grefe’s outrageous Creature from the Black Lagoon Everglades-style about an uptight scientist and partying teens being terrorized by a half-man/half-jellyfish.
To be more specific, the monster is a were-jellyfish!
The bullied Igor-like assistant to a swamp scientist in love with his boss’ daughter develops a means by which to transform himself into a jellyfish man - that looks suspiciously like a decorated wetsuit with an inflated plastic bag mask - by dunking his head in a computerized fish tank. Trust me; it doesn’t make »
