These are some of the best movies that can be found in the “independent” section; none have received a wide theatrical release.
This movie is ridiculous. Seriously, you will be left scratching your head for days at the myriad plot twists and the rapid–fire dialogue laden with retro pop culture references. What other film can boast a mad axe murderer, time travel, teen romance and Dane Cook? It’s a treat for all occasions.
This hazily–shot film will appeal to the voyeur in all of us as it gives us a behind–the–scenes look at the making of one of our culture’s most taboo icons: the porn star. Ashley Hinshaw is beautiful and ingenuous throughout her journey to the dark side, and it’s a special thrill to see the beloved “Roller Girl” from “Boogie Nights,” Heather Graham, flip the script as Hinshaw’s mentor and maker.
Just released on iTunes, this festival darling is a riveting character study of an estranged family caught in various love triangles. A project from the mind of Lena Dunham (“Girls”), the film perceptively captures the quiet, unspoken moments of desire and heartbreak, and the charisma of John Krasinski and Olivia Thirlby is endlessly watchable.
