The Overnighters
“Everyone deserves a chance, this is America” says one of the many men looking for hope featured in the fantastic Jesse Moss-helmed documentary “The Overnighters” —it’s on our list of the Best Documentaries of 2014 So Far. It’s a line that can also act as a sort of mission statement for Pastor Jay Reinke, who risks a lot to help men with troubled pasts, men that his community would rather see gone. The film’s first trailer has arrived online, indicating the dilemmas at the heart of this film.

Amiable if overlong, "The Price of Fame," the new film from festival circuit fixture Xavier Beauvois, whose last film “Of Gods and Men” won the Grand Prix in Cannes 2010, is a serviceable addition to the surprisingly well-defined subgenre of the graverobbing comedy. Based on the true story of an inept plot to steal Charlie Chaplin’s grave and hold it for ransom, the film suffers from the same uneven tone that can often hound this sort of shaggy dog story,

It's too long (almost three years) since we had a new film from David Fincher, the director having spent time away with TV series "House Of Cards," and with his frustrating and ultimately unfulfilled quest to make "20,000 Leagues Under The Sea." But the wait is almost over: it's just a few weeks before "Gone Girl" premieres at the New York Film Festival.

Imitation Game
We're well underway on festival season: the Venice Film Festival is going into its second day, and as we speak, our intrepid correspondent is mid-air on the way to the Telluride International Film Festival, which kicks off tomorrow. An increasingly crucial Oscar launch pad as well as a nicely curated festival, Telluride also differs from other festivals in that it only announces its lineup at the last minute. And by the last minute, we mean just now.

Hill Of Freedom
South Korean director and festival regular Hong Sang-Soo’s latest film “Hill of Freedom” is slated to screen at three of the major fall-season festivals —the Venice Film Festival, which kicked off yesterday, the Toronto International Film Festival, starting next week, and the New York International Film Festival in late September. The filmmaker, who typically specializes in intimate portraits of confused, lovelorn souls, sticks to his wheelhouse here, telling the story of a young Japanese man who travels to South Korea to find a woman he loves who won’t answer his letters.

His next film, the long-gestating spy picture "The Man From U.N.C.L.E," having recently been pushed back to next August, "Sherlock Holmes" helmer Guy Ritchie is already gearing up for his next project. The director's long been developing a new take on the legend of King Arthur, Camelot and the Knights of the Round Table. The script is penned by "Awake" writer and "Edge Of Tomorrow" producer Joby Harold, and Ritchie landed his first cast member a few weeks back in the shape of the ever-awesome Idris Elba.

2015 may be over-saturated with costly tentpoles, but we have release date news of at least two films that appear to be aiming at an older crowd: we suspect each will be worlds apart in tone once all is said and done,

Among the competing shows is "Red Oaks," from director David Gordon Green.

The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby
The story of Ned Benson's "The Disappearance Of Eleanor Rigby: Them" has ben told over and over by now. A condensed version of his two part project,"The Disappearance Of Eleanor Rigby: His" and "The Disappearance Of Eleanor Rigby: Hers" (which will also be opening this fall, if you want the full film), it tracks the arc of a relationship turned upside down by tragedy. And while there has been plenty of ink spilled regarding the structure of the movie and some trailers, the first two clips, below, provide the best context yet for the film.
