Successful Alcoholics: A Sadly Tragic View of Titular Boozers

Successful Alcoholics: A Sadly Tragic View of Titular Boozers

Successful Alcoholics is a funny, yet very dark short film from director Jordan Vogt-Roberts, which was an audience hit at Sundance and SXSW last year.  After playing at Sundance, SXSW, AFI and over 30 other festivals, this is the first time this short film is available online. In the film, a financially-successful young co-dependent couple is drowning in booze and yet still clinging to well-paying jobs. At first their antics seem hilarious, but ultimately their story becomes really heartbreaking.

Dock Ellis: A Heavenly Flamboyant Psychedelic Comeback!

Dock Ellis: A Heavenly Flamboyant Psychedelic Comeback!

The Sundance Film Festival has announced its 2010 Jury Prizes, and James Blagden’s Dock Ellis and the LSD No-No was awarded an Honorable Mention in Short Filmmaking.  Blagden created an animated short film that tells a hilarious, meandering story about the former major league pitcher Dock Ellis, which leads him to one of his greatest moments in the sport.  It provides a  magical narration of his infamous no-hitter for the Pittsburgh Pirates against the San Diego Padres in 1970 while he was “high as a Georgia pie,” or specifically under the influence of LSD.  After retiring, he later worked as a drug counselor before passing away last December.
