NEW SHORT DOCUMENTARY: “The Doctor in One Flew Over The Cuckoo’s Nest”

Posted on by Admin in Documentaries | Comments Off

DR-DEAN-BROOKS-TN-02

Joe Pantoliano interviews Dr. Dean Brooks, the former Superintendent of the Oregon State Hospital from 1955 to 1981. Brooks participated in the film One Flew Over The Cuckoo’s Nest when the producers cast him as Dr. Spivey and shot the film at the hospital in Salem, Oregon during the mid-1970′s. Brooks talks about how he started in psychiatry, became involved with the film, and what he learned about acting from Jack Nicholson.

No Kidding? Me Too! (NKM2), founded by Joe Pantoliano, is a non-profit organization who’s main purpose is to stomp the stigma that surrounds brain disease.

Childhood friends, and both from Hoboken, Joey Pantoliano (Joey Pants) and Rich Pèpe often sat around the kitchen table with their large Italian families. Over a bowl of macaroni, they’d talk of ways to become successful, and “live the American dream” just like their immigrant grandparents sought when they came to America from Southern Italy.

Fast forward to today, and we find that Joey and Pèpe have both realized their respective dreams. Joey is a respected Emmy award winning actor and Pèpe is a successful chef and restaurateur. Once again, over a bowl of macaroni, the lifelong friends concluded that the one thing they did well together was to make a great pasta sauce (or is it gravy?). So, forty years later, they have teamed up to offer you their family recipes that came over “on the boat” with their grandparents.

But these “Two Guys from Hoboken” didn’t stop in the kitchen; they decided to donate a portion of the net proceeds to support NO KIDDING, ME TOO, a celebrity advocated charity devoted to bringing awareness and compassion to mental health issues.

Pèpe & Pants Pasta Sauce is touted as the next Newman’s Own. With five sauces to choose from, online recipes to download, and a cookbook in the works, Pèpe & Pants Pasta Sauce is fast becoming one of the most popular pasta sauces in America today.

Asylum: Hollywood Tales from My Great Depression: Brain Dis-Ease, Recovery, and Being My Mother’s Son

Overview
In this deeply moving and resourceful memoir, beloved actor-director and New York Times bestselling author Joe Pantoliano takes aim at the stigma attached to what he calls “brain dis-ease” by writing candidly and humorously about his own journey through clinical depression and addiction. Most people know Joe Pantoliano from his memorable roles in such blockbuster movies as The Matrix, Risky Business, The Fugitive, and Memento, or from his Emmy-winning performance on The Sopranos. But despite all this success, the actor, known as “Joey Pants,” struggled with what he later found out was clinical depression—or brain dis-ease, as he calls it. Asylum is the story of Joe’s quest for the Hollywood success he was sure would cure him, and the painful downhill spiral into depression and addiction that followed his success. Weaving deeply personal experience together with informative discourse, this memoir creates an unflinchingly honest portrayal of the true nature of the disease, as well as Joe’s own eventual diagnosis, recovery, and ongoing efforts to educate others and remove the stigma from mental illness.
