Arthouse Audit: 'Restrepo' Sequel 'Korengal' Tops Specialty Box Office; Kelly Reichardt's 'Night Moves' Takes Second

An eclectic group of new releases failed to provide any films with more than niche potential in upcoming weeks. The standout is "Korengal" (Saboteur), a sequel of sorts to the Oscar-nominated documentary feature "Restrepo," which had a New York opening in the range of its predecessor. "Night Moves" (Cinedigm), the latest film from indie auteur Kelly Reichardt, had a decent if not spectacular two-theater bicoastal start.

Though critics are pooh-poohing the tawdry, toilet-humor antics of Seth MacFarlane's "Million Ways to Die in the West," Angelina Jolie in "Maleficent" promises to be a fun family time-suck, while the weekend's indies offer something more to chew on.

Review: Kelly Reichardt's Eco Suspense Thriller 'Night Moves'

Three radical environmentalists blow up a hydro-electric dam in Oregon, and then face the consequences of their extreme actions in Kelly Reichardt's meditative, observational suspense-drama. Already beloved by many for her minimalist chronicles of American malaise "Wendy and Lucy" and "Meek's Cutoff," Reichardt's fifth feature is strongest in its set-up before becoming a tad perplexing and taking a baffling wrong turn at its inconclusive ending.

TIFF, Day Four: Egoyan's 'Devil's Knot,' Hendrix Biopic 'All Is By My Side,' Jonze and Reichardt Q&A and More

I forgot to mention one of yesterday's highlights: while Maureen O'Donnell and I were waiting in line for the excellent documentary "Finding Vivian Maier," we were stunned to see a long phalanx of orange-t-shirted volunteers with linked arms making a human shield on either side of Susan Sarandon, protecting her from the hoi polloi as she left the first public screening of "The Last of Robin Hood."
