From KFOR-TV comes this cautionary tale of knowing how much is too much.
Possibly too much? When allegations include vomiting in the limo,
passing out, then punching the lady paramedic trying to help you.

Thriller Rod Lott
For very different reasons, I'll watch any movie with Vincent Price,
Bill Murray, Jackie Chan or Carla Gugino. Falling into the first
category is 1962's Confessions of an Opium Eater, a rare Price vehicle rare no more, thanks to a DVD debut from Warner Archive.
Drama Rod Lott
Vanguard director Takashi Miike is not one to repeat himself, and in Hara-Kiri: Death of a Samurai, he hasn't — not really. Yes, the film is the Japanese filmmaker's follow-up to 2010's 13 Assassins;
yes, both are remakes and focused on samurais. But they approach the
genre from such varying ways that other than excellence, the
similarities end there.
Documentary Rod Lott
Don’t feel stupid: I didn’t know who Ralph Zavadil was, either. After
all, we can’t be faulted for living in Oklahoma City instead of Ontario,
Canada. Ultimately, it makes no difference, because Beauty Day,
the documentary about the man, is a fun viewing nonetheless. That’s
because there’s something about watching stunts of bodily harm that
holds universal appeal.
