The Cold Lands

This intense and poignant drama from writer-director Tom Gilroy is about a young man whose world is suddenly turned upside-down; it's a throwback to 1990s American indie films that were more about atmosphere, characterization and regional detail than gimmicks.

Veronica Mars

I can't imagine anyone who liked the show not enjoying this movie, even though the first half is stronger than the second. All in all the movie delivers what you expect but not in the way that you expect it.

Jimmy P.

Benecio del Toro stars as a Blackfoot Indian and World War II veteran seeking treatment for headaches and catatonia with help from a French psychoanalyst (Mathieu Amalric). Meandering and peculiar but highly original, this is a psychodrama unlike any you've seen.
