Two strangers indulge in wild impulses and become entangled in an unexpected relationship in Wild Grass, a critically acclaimed, award-winning French film from renowned director Alain Resnais (Hiroshima Mon Amour). "Like its would-be lovers," writes Stephen Holden in NY Times, "Wild Grass chases itself in circles as it scrambles genres, examining seeing, thinking, remembering and imagining with a zany awareness. In Georges's words: "After the cinema nothing surprises you. Everything is possible."

Horror auteur Ti West is back with another slow-burning throwback film sustaining the quality of his very successful previous effort, The House of the Devil. Slant writes, "The classic haunted-house story is probably the mustiest in the book, and West sets out to subvert it while also identifying how essential such conventions are to the form. His work has always been heavily referential, but it stands apart presently in the sense that those references are never handled ironically."
