  • The Slow Hustle, directed by Sonja Sohn, follows Detective Suitor’s widow and local investigative reporters as they work to get answers in the Suiter case and hold the Baltimore Police Department and City Hall accountable. The conflicting theories on his death speak to stark divisions between the involved parties – an independent review board ruled his death a suicide, a theory that the Suiter family strongly resists. As new evidence emerges, the mystery deepens. It is revealed that Suiter had been summoned to testify in the now infamous Gun Trace Task Force trial, an elite police unit that proved to be one of the dirtiest in Baltimore’s recent history. Was his death a calculated effort to keep him silent, or was Suiter himself a cop under scrutiny with a past he couldn’t face?”

Music Box: Mr. Saturday Night, Documentary Premiere (HBO)

  • “Brimming with the sights and sounds of the era and hearing from many of the key players at the time, Mr. Saturday Night details Robert Stigwood’s rise on the music scene in Britain in the 60s, and his years of cultural dominance in America as a manager, producer and taste-making genius. His crowning achievement was optioning a gritty New York Magazine article by Nik Cohn titled ‘Tribal Rites of the New Saturday Night’ and taking on the leadership of Paramount Pictures who never quite believed in the ‘little disco movie.’ In a prescient coup, he signed TV actor John Travolta and married the rhythmic dance music of the Bee Gees to the resulting movie. While often remembered as a beat-happy story of disco dancing, ‘Saturday Night Fever’ captured the zeitgeist of disaffected youth struggling to break free of their milieu.”
