Blood into Wine: Here’s something I don’t know anything about: apparently the lead-singer of TOOL (yes, Tool), decided to quit being a hard rocker in the mid-90s in order to start his own WINERY (yes, winery). This doc follows Maynard James Keenan around his Verde Valley vineyard to see if he actually succeeds. Do I like Tool? No. But this thing looks too good to pass up.

Casino Jack and the United States of Money: Alex Gibney calls out Washington lobbyist Jack Abramoff for messing with US politics so he can make boatloads of money for himself. Sounds like something that will make me angry, but also important and interesting enough to check out.

America: The Story of Us: Am I automatically biased because Liev Schrieber is narrating this massive documentary about American history? Absolutely. I could listen to that guy read the phone book—but I digress. I’d like a fresh look at the American Revolution, the Civil War, the lunar landing and more. How ‘bout you?
