1. The Schlocky Horror Picture Show (2007 TV Series)
Episode: Wild Women of Wongo (1958) (2010)
by James Wolcott starring Jean Hawkshaw and Adrienne Bourbeau. The Wild Women Of Wongo was made by a cast and crew of unknowns who stayed that way. It was filmed in Florida and set on a tropical island circa 8,000 BC. The occupants are tragically primitive in some ways, yet surprisingly modern in others, which is a generous way of saying 'anachronisms abound'. What passes for a plot in this movie is a silly social engineering experiment conducted by Mother Nature and Father Time. Many people regard these two entities as being very wise, but according to the evidence in this film of this film, they are both idiots, unfit to be guiding our precious lives or having anything to do with the creation of screenplays. At least the Wild Women themselves are very watchable. Not for their great acting abilities or for providing profound insights into the human condition, but for reasons that will soon become apparent.
2. Operation Libertad (2012)
In April 1978, members of "Groupe Autonome Révolutionnaire" (GAR) rob a major bank in Zurich with the aim of bringing to light the covert ties between the Swiss financial system and dictatorships in Latin American. Wanting to secure concrete evidence, they film the entire operation. Although the bank director confesses to GAR, the Paraguayan mediator refuses to cooperate, confronting the members of GAR with difficult issues: Should they liquidate this lieutenant-colonel of the dictatorial regime's secret service? Or take him as a hostage? What should they do with the millions they have stolen from the bank? And the agonizing, recurring question: Does the end really justify the means? Thirty years later, the videotapes of this operation resurface, thus raising a new question: How did the affair actually end at that time?
They are four young men and four young women, from different backgrounds, united in their conviction that society must change. Revolted by the political situation in those troubled 1970s, they decide to mount a spectacular action to expose the complicity of Swiss banks in the crimes of a heinous South-American dictatorship. Vehicles, weapons, safe houses: "Operation Libertad" is prepared carefully. In a shrewd move, a member of the group is equipped with a portable camera; he will film the operation as it unfolds, producing material that will boost its impact in the mass media. When the day arrives, everything goes exactly as planned -- till hitting a snag. The first in a series of disconcerting hitches that throw the group increasingly off balance...
In 1978, the members of a small revolutionary group break into a Swiss bank near Zurich. They film the entirety of the action so as to prove the collusion between the Swiss financial system and dictators.

The woman received the package herself, opened it in his presence, but found only bits of blank paper, instead of the bonds she had expected. At first she suspected the broker, but he clearly proved that, in the presence of two witnesses, he had placed the bonds in an envelope, and carefully sealed them up. The messenger boy protested his innocence, but the woman and the broker both insisted the he be prosecuted, and the weeping child was locked in a cell. His sister pleaded with his accuser, but in vain, and for several days the case against the boy was dark. One morning while joining film the girl happened to glance with extra care at one scene. She thought she recognized her brother, and close examination under a microscope proved to her she was correct.

Two detectives accompanied her back to the plant, and saw a scene of a play thrown upon the screen. It revealed the messenger boy, a package in his hand, coming around the corner, whistling merrily. A man close behind him ran into and upset the child, deftly substituted a package he held, for the one the boy had dropped, and then walking down the street, so rapidly that he did not notice the camera. "Don't you know that man?" screamed the girl. "He is the broker who had my brother sent to prison." The broker was arrested, and when the evidence of the film was displayed to him, he broke down and confessed. He had hoped by throwing the blame upon the boy to keep the bonds for himself.
