Indie Snapshot: <i>Take This Waltz</i>

A slow weekend at the multiplex gives you time to catch up with some of the indie features -- like Sarah Polley's Take This Waltz -- currently playing at an art house or video on demand service near you.

Indie Snapshot: <i>Beasts of the Southern Wild</i>

By far the most buzzed-about movie at this year's Sundance Film Festival (and one of the first to get snapped up for distribution), Benh Zeitlin's Beasts of the Southern Wild is an altogether striking debut feature. Filmed on location in the bayous of Southern Louisiana, the film offers a "through a child's eyes" portrait of an impoverished rural community that's tinged with fantasy yet still firmly rooted in a compelling reality.

Indie Snapshot: <i>Seeking a Friend For the End of the World</i>

Like an unholy cross between Melancholia and Little Miss Sunshine, Lorene Scafaria's debut feature is a quirky road comedy set against the backdrop of the looming apocalypse. This particular end-of-the-world scenario involves an enormous asteroid that will reduce Earth to a cinder when it smashes into the planet in 21 days. But it's a sign of just how deeply annoying the movie is that you long for this planet-destroying space rock to arrive in half the time so that everyone onscreen will die sooner.

A period comedy about the invention of the vibrator? What will those Brits think of next?

Indie Snapshot: Damsels in Distress

Indie Snapshot: <I>Damsels in Distress</i> In Damsels in Distress, three college girls set out to revolutionize their East Coast university through the power of intellect and dance. The film is Whit Stillman's first picture in 14 years (his last being 1998's The Last Days of Disco) and is far too coy to be successful. But I'm getting ahead of myself.
