Welcome, Welcome, Welcome to the 1st Episode of The New Year. Rick Ramos comes out of the corner throwing haymakers to the head and body. On this edition of WatchThis Rick dishes on the beginning of the New Year. He discusses Mark Wahlberg's new film THE GAMBLER, as well as a recent screening of the BACK TO THE FUTURE TRILOGY. Then the Jack Daniels kicks in and Ramos gets down talking about his favorite documentaries of recent years: JODOROWSKY'S DUNE (Director Frank Pavich) detailing the failed science fiction project that Jodorowsky speaks so passionately about some thirty years later. He also goes over Keith Fulton & Luis Pepe's LOST IN LA MANCHA, a heartbreaking behind-the-scenes account of one of the tragic losses of cinema, Terry Gilliam's almost quarter century effort to adapt Cervantes' DON QUIXOTE. This one will break your heart. Finally, he finishes with Molly Bernstein & Alan Edelstein’s incredible biography, DECEPTIVE PRACTICES: THE MYSTERIES AND MENTORS OF RICKY JAY, easily one of Ramos' favorite films of the last ten years. Enjoy the Show and Thanks for Listening.
