Filmmaker Davis Guggenheim follows Al Gore on the lecture circuit, as the former presidential candidate campaigns to raise public awareness of the dangers of global warming and calls for immediate action to curb its destructive effects on the environment.
A look at tightrope walker Philippe Petit's daring, but illegal, high-wire routine performed between New York City's World Trade Center's twin towers in 1974, what some consider, "the artistic crime of the century".
Jean François Heckel,
The story of the life and career of the legendary rhythm and blues musician Ray Charles, from his humble beginnings in the South, where he went blind at age seven, to his meteoric rise to stardom during the 1950s and 1960s.
Biopic of the iconic French singer Édith Piaf. Raised by her grandmother in a brothel, she was discovered while singing on a street corner at the age of 19. Despite her success, Piaf's life was filled with tragedy.
A documentary on the threat that climate change poses to the Earth - it's causes, effects and history and potential solutions to it. Presented by Al Gore through a lecture that he has given to audiences across the globe, plus through more introspective moments.Written by

When Al Gore shows the slide of the ice core graph at the beginning of the movie (about 20 minutes in), the numbers on the y-axis are wrong - the average is at 0.5, and the negative numbers are flipped. This graph is correct in the book; the slide is wrong and therefore misleading. See more »
You look at that river gently flowing by. You notice the leaves rustling with the wind. You hear the birds; you hear the tree frogs. In the distance you hear a cow. You feel the grass. The mud gives a little bit on the river bank. It's quiet; it's peaceful. And all of a sudden, it's a gear shift inside you. And it's like taking a deep breath and going, "Oh yeah, I forgot about this."

How can you guys believe that global warming is true? That humans can cause the earth to warm like this? Did you know that a single volcanic eruption puts almost as much pollutants into the air that would cause this "global warming" than we humans have throughout our existence? Yeah, I bet not. Also, that the average temperature of the earth has only raised .01 percent in the last 100 years still means we are in a global warming? Yeah...right, and I invented the internet. The earth goes into cycles of warming up and cooling down, these are things called like the ice age. Yeah, ice age...bet you've heard of that. Well, we are about 1,000 years late for this planets next ice age, and the earth actually does get warmer right before an ice age...Al Gore is an idiot and should not be taken seriously. This movie is almost as bad as any of Michael Moore's. My god people, I wish natural selection was still in existence with humans.
