Daddy Longlegs (August 16)

Mining the psychological sense memories of their own fractured youths, Josh and Benny Safdie craft a by turns compassionate and disquieting picture of adult dysfunction poised in between strong love and scary irresponsibility. Manic Manhattan movie theater projectionist Lenny (cowriter and long time Safdie partner Ronald Bronstein) is maybe the last individual who must be raising kids, yet here he is, attempting (and stopping working) to keep it together as his life unwinds over the 2 whirlwind weeks that he has custody of his young kids (real-life bros Sage and Frey Ranaldo), with an unscripted journey, a sleeping-pill accident, and a night in prison all part of the mayhem.

Frownland (August 16)

A headache transmission from the grungiest depths of the New york city indie underground, the visceral, darkly amusing, and absolutely sui generis launching function from Ronald Bronstein is a dread-inducing vision of misfit alienation at its unhinged extreme.

As caught in the dirty expressionist grain of Sean Cost Williams’s claustrophobic electronic camera work, Frownland is do it yourself movie theater at its most brave, uncompromising, and extraordinary.

Dollar and the Preacher (August 23)

With his rousingly amusing directorial launching, Sidney Poitier assisted reword the history of the western, bringing Black heroes to a category in which they had actually constantly been sorely underrepresented.
