FYC: "2001 - A Peckham Odyssey" - Kenneth Anger's swan-song was also his most bizarre and excrutiating film to date.

FYC: "How It Crumbles" - Thriller in the vein of The Parallax View starring Vin Diesel as an intrepid New York Post journalist, Francois "Frank" Le Sida, who discovers that American consumer financial sentiment, and therefore the entire economy of the world, is being manipulated by a sinister Taiwanese baking consortium through its selection of semi-coherent messages in fortune cookies.
