If you’re looking for some entertainment this 4th of July weekend, Christopher Lloyd of The Film Yap has some movies new to digital/on-demand that you may want to check out. Here’s more from him:
New On Digital/Demand:
The Outpost — This true story of an Army outpost in an Afghanistan valley that held off an attack by hundreds of Taliban soldiers is turned into a grim, terrific war drama. With Scott Eastwood, Orlando Bloom and Caleb Landry Jones.
Skyman — Daniel Myrick, one of the guiding lights behind “The Blair Witch Project,” makes a faux-documentary in a similar vein about a man obsessed with his alien visitation 30 years earlier.
Cut Off — This uber-creepy German psychological thriller is about a coroner who discovers a note inside the skull of a cadaver that leads him on a chase of a killer, with his estranged daughter as one of his targets.
The Truth — Catherine Deneuve, Juliette Binoche, Ludivine Sagnier and Ethan Hawke star in this French drama about a legendary actress publishing her scathing memoirs, which leads to a clash with her daughters.
Black Magic for White Boys — This New York City slice-of-life fable involves a bottom-barrel magic act, the theater they’re about to lose, a predatory landlord and an unwanted pregnancy.
You Might Have Missed:
Minority Report — Steven Spielberg’s most un-Spielbergian film is a grim, dystopian vision of a future where you can be judged for crimes you haven’t yet committed.
