I Origins
Dir. Mike Cahill, USA | Fox Searchlight

Read our interview with Mike Cahill



Mood Indigo
Dir. Michel Gondry, France | Drafthouse Films
Cast: Audrey Tautou, Romain Duris, Omar Sy, Aissa Maiga
54% Fresh | New York Magazine: "An elaborate, endless clown-car of whirligig contraptions and unreal images, with little bursts of romantic melancholy peeking out here and there."

Wish I Was Here
Dir. Zach Braff, USA | Focus Features
Cast: Zach Braff, Kate Hudson, Mandy Patinkin, Josh Gad
36% Fresh | Salon.com: "It is sometimes maudlin, sometimes trivial and sometimes very moving, but never less than achingly sincere."

Aftermath
Dir. Peter Engert, USA | Image Entertainment
Cast: Edward Furlong, Monica Keena, Andre Royo
46% Fresh | New York Times: "Essentially, we're watching dead people refuse to lie down, yet the acting isn't terrible, and Scott Winig's photography is satisfyingly bleak and grimy." (Also available on VOD)

The Purge: Anarchy
Dir. James DeMonaco, USA | Universal
Cast: Frank Grillo, Kiele Sanchez, Michael K. Williams, Zach Gilford
56% Fresh | Village Voice: "Grillo's performance will make you wonder why he didn't start headlining movies like this before turning 50."


Alive Inside
Dir. Michael Rossato-Bennett, USA | BOND/360
62% Fresh | Village Voice: "Compellingly conveys how music - so intimately wedded to our emotions, and experiences - can help the severely ill elderly reconnect with themselves."
