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.

Since it’s October, you’re bound to catch Stanley Kubrick‘s psychological horror masterpiece The Shining at some point (hopefully not ruined by being cut for time and content on television). Of course, even though the movie is perfect for Halloween, it’s really the kind of twisted thriller that can be watched anytime. One of the film’s biggest fans is Mythbusters co-host Adam Savage, and he recently showed just how much love he has for the classic when heundertook quite the massive project for Tested.
Adam Savage has created an intricate model of the terrifying Overlook Hotel maze from the movie. It’s a beautiful, incredibly detailed piece of work that is impressive even when compared to everything else Adam Savage has done before.

This weekend brings Gavin O’Connor‘s action thriller The Accountant to theaters, giving us a second round of Ben Affleck action following his debut as the Dark Knight in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.
