I Am Maris: Portrait of a Young Yogi (2018)

Genre: Documentary
Director: Laura Vanzee Taylor
Cast: Maris Degener

This documentary takes a look at a 17-year-old yoga teacher, writer, and survivor of an eating disorder and other mental conditions. It looks at her story and how she’s moving forward with her life.

The star of the documentary is currently partaking in a Reddit AMA this evening which already includes some great questions and answers.

Snatch (2000)

Genre: Comedy, Crime
Director: Guy Ritchie
Cast: Benicio Del Toro, Dennis Farina, Vinnie Jones, Brad Pitt
Runtime: 102 min

Although this movie didn’t score well with critics when it first released it’s now a cultural phenomenon. It’s about a bunch of London gangsters who get involved with Irish boxers, violent bookmakers and gangsters from either side of the Atlantic.

It’s got a huge cast and if you haven’t ever had the chance to watch this. Take the opportunity now.

All the President’s Men (1976)

Genre: Biography, Drama, History, Thriller
Director: Alan J. Pakula
Cast: Dustin Hoffman, Robert Redford, Jack Warden, Martin Balsam
Runtime: 138 min

There were a few Oscar-winning movies today but All the President’s Men scored the highest with four under its belt. The movie follows two Washington Post reporters Bob Woodward and Carl Bernstein who uncover the Watergate scandal.

Death and Nightingales (Season 1)

Genre: Drama
Cast: Matthew Rhys, Ann Skelly, Jamie Dornan, Valene Kane
Language: English

This BBC limited drama was a favorite when it released in Britain last year. The three-part series is an epic tale of love, betrayal, and revenge set in 1885 in the Irish countryside.

This was the only BBC addition today but we did see 26 BBC series depart both today and yesterday plus other various titles too.

The Fifth Element (1997)

Genre: Action, Adventure, Sci-Fi
Director: Luc Besson
Cast: Bruce Willis, Gary Oldman, Ian Holm, Milla Jovovich
Runtime: 126 min

Much like Snatch, The Fifth Element has also aged like a fine wine and become a massive fan-favorite. Written and directed by Luc Besson, the movie is set far into the future and is about a taxi driver who stumbles upon a new element who just happens to be a woman. Also multi-pass.

There are just a few picks now onto the full list of new releases for today.
