Bellflower

When Bellflower — a live-wire drama about an unassuming man who needs to construct his personal post-apocalyptic muscle automobile — premiered at SXSW in 2011, the Alamo Drafthouse held an afterparty in a car parking zone that concerned a cricket consuming contest. If I keep in mind accurately, no less than one of many filmmakers in attendance participated. It was an actual choose-your-own-apocalypse kind of social gathering and everybody had a good time. That’s much less of a purpose to observe the movie and extra of a enjoyable anecdote, however possibly now you’re curious and it is best to watch Bellflower. (Neil Miller)

Buzzard

Buzzard

Centered on a small-time con man wielding a Nintendo Power Glove normal to resemble Freddy Krueger’s razor-sharp claws, Buzzard is dementedly hilarious with a sharply assured imaginative and prescient from Michigan director Joel Potrykus.

(Jacob Trussell)


Coherence

Coherence

Coherence is the kind of shoestring-budget, huge concept sci-fi story that followers of Shane Carruth (PrimerUpstream Color) or Justin Benson and Aaron Moorhead (The EndlessSpring) shouldn’t miss. The movie manages to show a easy feast into an existentially terrifying endeavor with a cerebral idea and a few deeply trippy prospers. Initially, the film’s home made aesthetic units us relaxed (how scary can a flick be if, as director James Ward Byrkit has said, it had no actual script or set?), however because the enigmatic plot unfolds — a rarely-seen comet passes close to Earth and begins to impression our world in unusual methods — an uneasy sense of dread and intrigue takes over. Cool, creepy, and surprisingly fast-moving for a one-roomer, Coherence is a worthy entry into the indie mindfuck canon. (Valerie Ettenhofer)

With a lot on the market able to tearing individuals aside, the movie serves as a reminder that we must always by no means cease coming collectively to share laughs, smiles, and hugs as a result of sometime all that continues to be might be recollections.
