November trailer

If a folklorist drank an entire bottle of cough syrup, passed out and had their fever dreams somehow captured on film, the result might look something like November. This gorgeous Estonian fantasy-drama-horror-something from director Rainer Sarnet defies classification, and must be seen to be believed. Feast your eyes on the visually stunning November trailer below.

The Road Movie review

The Road Movie is more of a YouTube compilation than a documentary.

If you’ve spent any time on the internet, you may have come across some of the many, many compilation videos of cars getting into accidents. What you may not know is that most of them come from Russian dashcam cameras. The Road Movie is nothing but 70 minutes of this footage, loosely tied together without much of a narrative string. For some viewers, that will be more than enough. A handpicked collection of some of the most extreme moments ever seen from a car? It’s intense in ways that no fictional film could ever be, and guaranteed to show you things you will (hopefully) never face. On the flipside, it’s an invasive look into people’s lives, making you a peeping tom giddy to see the next accident.

Martin Scorsese Silence streaming

(Welcome to Now Stream This, a column dedicated to the best movies streaming on Netflix, Amazon, Hulu, and every other streaming service out there.) 

Happy Holidays, I guess. As we wind down the clock on this garbage year, let us take time to appreciate the few good things in life: movies. Where would we be without movies? The answer, I think, is the grave. Or maybe I’m exaggerating. Either way, there’s something comforting about tuning out the world for two hours or so and engrossing yourself in a moving piece of entertainment (unless you’re one of those jerks who looks at their phone through an entire movie; stop that, kids).

If you’re looking for some streaming recommendations as the days grow shorter and winter arrives, look no further. I’ve assembled a hearty helping of films for you to sample. There’s a new Martin Scorsese masterpiece, a Shane Black comedy, a film about a ranting, raving president (no, not the current one), a suburban Western, and more! Here are the best movies streaming right now! So let’s get streaming.

The Road Movie trailer

Cool Posts From Around the Web:

New Blu-ray Releases

(Welcome to Not Dead Yet, a feature dedicated to what’s new on Blu-ray and what special features you should be excited about. Because yes, some of us still like to own physical copies of our movies.)

It’s time for another round-up of physical media. Are you like me – living in the past and unable to give up material possessions? If so, you prefer good old fashioned physical media like Blu-rays to just going digital. There’s something more special (at least in my broken brain) about displaying your Blu-ray collection on a shelf than just purchasing something digitally and then forgetting all about it. With the actual physical disc, it’s always there, in front of you. Or maybe I’m crazy!

This week’s Blu-ray roundup features one of the coolest action movies of the year, a somber, snowy drama, a five-film box set, and a documentary about cats. What more do you need, folks? Here are the new Blu-ray releases you should check out this week.

lost in paris trailer

Fiona Gordon‘s aunt lives in Paris and she’s trying to find her. Yes, that’s a La La Land joke, but the premise for Gordon and fellow director and co-star Dominique Abel‘s whimsical, candy-colored comedy Lost in Paris doesn’t do justice to the superb brand of physical comedy that the recently released trailer boasts.

‘Kedi’ Trailer: It’s a Feature-Length Cute Cat Video

Kedi trailer

While we at /Film love cats as much as anyone on the internet, we also consider ourselves a Super Duper Serious Movie Website. And sadly, that means we can’t just go around posting any cute cat video that strikes our fancy. But every once in a while, everything works out and our passion for cinema dovetails beautifully with our interest in adorable animals. Today is one of those days.

Oscilloscope Laboratories has released a new trailer for Kedi, Ceyda Torun‘s documentary about the cats of Istanbul. They’re technically strays, but this isn’t an ASPCA ad about sad abandoned pets — in fact, it kinda looks like these kitties own the place. Essentially, it’s a feature-length cat video, except shot way better and with some additional (human) musing about how great cats are. If you like cats at all, you will definitely want to watch the Kedi trailer below. Read More »

Always Shine trailer

Reconnecting with old friends can be a tricky proposition even under the best of circumstances, but the best frenemies at the heart of Always Shine aren’t in the best of circumstances. Mackenzie Davis and Caitlin FitzGerald lead Sophia Takal‘s psychological thriller as a pair of longtime pals who head up to Big Sur together in an effort to repair their bond. But the trip quickly turns toxic as the women are beset by jealousy and unhappiness, and begin to turn on each other.

Always Shine earned high praise at its Tribeca Film Festival world premiere, with Davis even scooped up a Best Actress award for her work. If you’ve ever watched Halt and Catch Fire or Masters of Sex and wished Davis and FitzGerald, respectively, had even more to do, this definitely looks like a movie worth checking out. Watch the Always Shine trailer below.  Read More »
