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 »

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 »

The holiday movie season is typically defined by family-friendly fare, stuff that you and mom and dad and grandma and grandpa and your cousins and nephews and nieces can go enjoy together. But what about the lonely cynics who spend the season alone and would like to let some darkness into their hearts every December?
Don’t worry. Hollywood has got you covered. This year’s holiday counter-programming looks to be Body, the newest release from the folks at Oscilloscope, and it looks like the kind of anti-Christmas thriller that will help keep your dark, shrunken heart at appropriate Grinch levels. Don’t let the greeting card companies win!
Watch the Body trailer after the jump.

You definitely know actor David Dastmalchian from ominous turns in films such as Prisoners and The Dark Knight, but he gets to explore much different territory in Animals. The film won the Special Jury Prize for Courage in Storytelling at SXSW in 2014, which has got to be pretty good for Dastmalcian, as he scripted the film in addition to starring in it.
Directed by Collin Schiffli, Animals features Dastmalchian as a guy who, with his partner Bobbie (played by Kim Shaw) deals with homelessness and addiction while carving out a tiny life in Chicago. Oscilloscope Laboratories will release the film later this season, and you can see the Animals trailer and poster below. Read More »
