Penumbra

Unlike the filmmakers’ previous thriller, you won’t break a ‘Sweat.’


Thriller

Rod Lott
Penumbra is Spanish for "partly in the shadows," which is how we first find the fourth-floor apartment that Margarita Sanchez (Cristina Brondo, Dario Argento's Do You Like Hitchcock?) shows to Jorge Kepler (Berta Muñiz), representative for a prospective renter willing to pay four times the going rate, and for a full year in advance.

Area 407

The found-footage film travels to Jurassic Park.


Horror

Rod Lott
Found-footage movies are no longer novel, but they're cheap to make, so expect to see many, many more shoot out Hollywood's pipeline. As long as concepts are tweaked, however, surprises like Chronicle can occur.

Peace, Love & Misunderstanding

You'll want to punch a hippie.


Drama

Phil Bacharach
Nothing can bring out one’s inner Richard Nixon like a flight of baby-boomer whimsy that rubs your nose in 1960s nostalgia. Peace, Love & Misunderstanding, a gentle-minded paean to the Woodstock generation, might just make you want to punch a hippie.

Rites of Spring

A well-seasoned thriller.


Horror

Rod Lott
For a quarter of a century, Rites of Spring tells us in its opening titles, teenage girls have gone missing, and their bodies never recovered. The two young women abducted from their car in the indie horror film’s first act are sure to be the latest. Sure enough, they’re soon hanging by their bound wrists in a dirty old barn.

Sleepwalk with Me

From A to Zzzz, comedian Mike Birbiglia’s account of his noctural disorder is a sleeper hit.


Comedy

Rod Lott
Early in Sleepwalk with Me, protagonist Matt Pandamiglio (comedian Mike Birbiglia, more or less playing himself) addresses via narration the feelings his character holds for his live-in girlfriend, Abby (Lauren Ambrose, Wanderlust) with the lines, “I think falling in love for the first time is such a transcendent feeling. It's like pizza-flavored ice cream: Your brain can't even process that level of joy.”

Why Stop Now

Don’t even start.


Comedy

Rod Lott
Why Stop Now is a comedy that tries too hard to be a comedy. C’mon, you know the kind: Although grounded in reality, the film presents characters so quirky, they may as well come with signs around their neck to signal their stock roles, i.e. “Precocious Sibling” and “Black Sidekick.” Incidentally, this one fronts both of those examples.
