MARCEL THE SHELL WITH SHOES ON

612
How can a film as disarmingly simple as this inspire deep feelings about loss, connection, and the meaning of family? I’m not sure I have the answer; all I know is that I was fighting back tears at the…

ANOTHER INDIE SLEEPER: CHA CHA REAL SMOOTH

827
I wasn’t sure what to make of a movie called Cha Cha Real Smooth, but when I learned that it won the Audience Award at this year’s Sundance Film Festival it earned my attention. Now I’m a proselytizer for the…
