Disconnect

Log on for drama.


Drama

Rod Lott
Its technology will be dated hopelessly within a few years, but for now, Disconnect stands as an accurate parable on the dangers of the Internet.

At Any Price

A gifted filmmaker takes a detour with a farmland melodrama.


Drama

Phil Bacharach
Ramin Bahrani has directed three extraordinary, independently produced films about characters living on the margins on society. That trio — Man Push Cart (2005), Chop Shop (2007) and Goodbye Solo (2008) — rightly earned him scads of critical acclaim and excitement about his future projects.

Love Is All You Need

When brokenhearted, middle-aged people assemble for a wedding in Italy, that’s amore.


Drama

Rod Lott
On paper — or computer screen — Love Is All You Need sounds like an overdose of saccharine. Even swallowing just a few plot keywords could trigger symptoms: “widower,” “wedding” and “breast cancer.”

The East

For an indie thriller with as much intelligence as intrigue, just head to ‘The East.’ No compass needed.


Thriller

Rod Lott
Across her three films as an actress/writer/producer (2011’s Another Earth, 2012’s Sound of My Voice and now The East), Brit Marling has explored the subjects of cults, symbols, duplicates, identity and family. Remarkably, despite these recurring themes and a tonal similarity, each experience seems anew.

Fill the Void

Love and marriage don’t always go together like a horse and carriage, as this Hebrew-language drama shows.


Drama

Aimee Williams
From the first scene, it’s clear Fill the Void is a rare, if not voyeuristic look into the concealed lives of a seemingly impermeable religious community.
