Monsters University

The college-set Disney/Pixar prequel graduates without honors.


Children's

Phil Bacharach
If Monsters University is any indication of what children think college is like, maybe it’s no wonder that increasing numbers of young people are forgoing higher education. The follow-up to Disney/Pixar 2001’s Monsters, Inc. imagines university life as a suffocating place ruled by mean-spirited cliques and droning professors.

Much Ado About Nothing

Great Shakes!


Comedy

Aimee Williams
Testing the adaptability of a literary and theater masterpiece, Josh Whedon’s Much Ado About Nothing obliterates all of the pomp and ceremony typically associated with a Shakespeare production, bringing it down to earth in Southern California.

The East

For an indie thriller with as much intelligence as intrigue, just head to ‘The East.’ No compass needed.


Thriller

Rod Lott
Across her three films as an actress/writer/producer (2011’s Another Earth, 2012’s Sound of My Voice and now The East), Brit Marling has explored the subjects of cults, symbols, duplicates, identity and family. Remarkably, despite these recurring themes and a tonal similarity, each experience seems anew.

Fill the Void

Love and marriage don’t always go together like a horse and carriage, as this Hebrew-language drama shows.


Drama

Aimee Williams
From the first scene, it’s clear Fill the Void is a rare, if not voyeuristic look into the concealed lives of a seemingly impermeable religious community.

The To Do List

Even if it only has S-E-X on its mind, this isn’t your ordinary gross-out comedy.


Comedy

Aimee Williams
Let’s talk about sex. Specifically, how absurd sex can be.

Em and the MotherSuperiors — Churches into Theaters


Rock

Joshua Boydston
As titles go, Churches into Theaters is an apt descriptor for the debut album from Oklahoma City rockers Em and the MotherSuperiors. It’s a reverential record, one that shares the gospel of classic rock, blues and soul but embraces the need to refashion it for modern times, channeling The Dead Weather, Grace Potter and Cage the Elephant along the way.
