The Final Member
There are few movies this year where you'll see a man get the stars and stripes of the American flag tattooed on the head of his penis. But then again, there are few documentaries like "The Final Member," a warm look at a quirky subject that gets to the human story behind it.

The Double
In just under a month, Richard Ayoade's "The Double" will take you into a retro-future-punk world where there are two Jesse Eisenberg's and yet no one manages to confuse the two. In fact, one is smooth and confident, while the other is meek and anonymous, and the actor gets great mileage out of both parts in the film that hilarious and wonderfully put together. And now you can find out how it was all done.

Game Of Thrones
SPOILERS AHEAD. Ding dong, the witch king is dead. Last Sunday's episode of "Game Of Thrones" (recap here) turned everything on its head by killing off Joffrey, one of the most shocking moments the show has seen since, well, The Red Wedding. It was so surprising in fact, that HBO waited until mid-week to drop their usual array of behind-the-scenes material for the episode. They don't disappoint.

Ballet 422
While Darren Aronofsky provided audiences with a nightmarish vision of what it means to be dancer in "Black Swan," in real life, ballet is a mix of collaboration, dedication and lots of sweat. And viewers will see all of that come together in the documentary "Ballet 422," premiering at the Tribeca Film Festival.

Mad Men
It might not be the pop culture phenomenon that it once was (the grabbier, faster likes of “True Detective” and “Game Of Thrones” having surpassed it at the nation’s watercoolers), but last Sunday saw the return of “Mad Men,” and if the seventh season premiere was anything to go by, it’s as good as it ever was. Matthew Weiner’s show, about the lives of the employees of a Madison Avenue ad agency in the 1960s (and in particular, the alienated, self-reinventing golden boy Don Draper, played to star-making effect by Jon Hamm, and Elisabeth Moss’s secretary-turned-high-flyer Peggy Olsen) has been a critical favorite since it launched in 2007 and almost singlehandedly made AMC a serious home for prestige drama (paving the way for network-mates “Breaking Bad” and “The Walking Dead” in the process).

Guardians Of The Galaxy/Avengers
Everyone wants a spin-off. That’s the talk du jour. It’s not enough to just have a franchise, you need solo films to keep that franchise going and going. It’s the new black: release a movie every other year while the main mothership has its flagship super-movie every two or three years, right? Fox hopes to do the same with the “X-Men: Days Of Future Past” series and Mystique (a mooted spin-off while the super-hero team carries on every other few years). And Marvel obviously already has this plan in place: an “Avengers” movie ever few years and in between them they have their solo character movies, “Captain America: The Winter Soldier,” “Ant-Man,” “Thor: The Dark World” etc.

They don't make 'em like this anymore. Well, more accurately, they don't make 'em like this anymore, but Jim Mickle still does. The director behind "Stake Land" and "We Are What We Are" returns with another genre exercise with "Cold In July," and the first trailer has arrived.

Abdellatif Kechiche
Following his critically acclaimed "Blue Is The Warmest Color," director Abdellatif Kechiche toyed with a few ideas for this follow-up. He talked about an extended cut of his lesbian romance film, a potential biopic of '70s porn star Marilyn Chambers, and a film about Héloïse & Abélard. But now he's decided on his next film and....it's none of those.
