While it's coming on five years since "Inland Empire" with no word yet of another feature, it's not like David Lynch hasn't been keeping busy. He's been selling coffee, doing weather reports, shooting a campaign for Lady Dior with Marion Cotillard and releasing music (more on that in a second), but his next project is a bit of an eyebrow raiser.

A sterile basement, untouched by tainted hands. A small coalition of the willing, clean, bright-eyed and brimming with a mixture of fear and optimism. A beautiful woman with a secret, clad in white, attached to a breathing apparatus, telling an outlandish story. Like the listeners, you hang onto every word, you cling to every hidden meaning. This is the world of “Sound Of My Voice.”

We hope you're sitting down for this, because the premise may topple you over in paroxysms of laughter (intentional or not).

With only four film deep into his career, filmmaker Neil Burger has been amassing a varied body of work. So far he's done mystical period drama ("The Illusionist"), a pseudo docum-drama about who killed JFK ("Interview With The Assassin"), an post Iraq War indie drama ("The Lucky Ones"), and now his most ambitious work, "Limitless," a New York-set self-improvement, power-and-influence drama set within the confines of reality-based sci-fi.

It doesn't get more high profile than Brad Pitt and Natalie Portman attaching themselves to star and produce a film, but when both actors put their names to the adaptation of Leanne Shapton's "Important Artifacts and Personal Property From the Collection of Lenore Doolan and Harold Morris, Including Books, Street Fashion and Jewelry," it's no surprise that the project became a hot property.

For months now we've been bombarded with trailers for Zack Snyder's "Sucker Punch." These trailers have been elliptical, at least from a story point of view. Visually, they've been somewhat staggering – quick fire clips of attractive young girls in costumes that border on high-end fetish gear, battling all sorts of mythological or supernatural elements. They dive in between robots, zip underneath monstrous samurais, and face off against towering, fire-breathing dragons.

In the immortal words of C&C Music Factory, "Hesher," a dark comedy/drama concoction from co-writer/director Spencer Susser, is very much a thing that makes you go "hmmmm." This might not be a bad thing (to tell you the truth we're still parsing through our thoughts on the film), but it certainly exists – it's the kind of movie you're thinking about days after you've seen it, whether you want to or not.
