Dead Awake

Nick Stahl’s other indie premiere this week, this one tells of another unsolved fatality, albeit our star and his friends know what happened that night—and are now faced to confront their demons in the form of the frightening re-appearance of the man who died years ago.

Applaus (Applause)

Danish actress Paprika Steen delivers a powerful and award-worthy performance in this film from that country about a middle-aged, alcoholic mother whose drinking continues to push her life into an increasingly downward-spiraling mess.

Rare Exports: A Christmas Tale

This ‘unique’ (to say the least…) Finland import spins a yarn of found buried-treasure, small town secrets, and murder—all at the hands of jolly ol’ Saint Nick; what appears to be a genuinely disturbed premise might just fall flat because of an otherwise ludicrous plot.

Rent It!! just in case—for when you get tired of the usual holiday cinema fare!

I Love You Phillip Morris

Jim Carrey and Ewan McGregor are a pair of flamboyantly homosexual lovers who meet in prison in this independent comedy that presents Carrey as real-life recently out-of-the-closet petty thief Steven Jay Russell whose shenanigans land him in the pen—only to meet his seemingly destined partner Phillip (McGregor).
