“I really like movies that are super-naturalistic. I studied film studies in college, but I slept through all the movies, and I love film but I don't have a lot to reference. And so I don't know what my influences are and I don't know where this came from at all.”

    ALL THE LIGHT IN THE SKY

    Joe Swanberg United States, 2012

    Joe Swanberg has quietly made one of the most prolific oeuvres of this young century and All the Light in the Sky is another modest yet affecting entry. Shot with minimal means, the naturalism achieved here is remarkable, and Jane Adams’s authentic turn gives the film a deeply resonant core.

    GABI ON THE ROOF IN JULY

    Lawrence Michael Levine United States, 2010

    Citing both John Cassavetes and Mike Leigh as influences, Lawrence Michael Levine’s film is thus naturally both a dramatic and structural experiment. Driven by an expansive cast of a who’s-who of New York’s independent filmmaking talent, Gabi on the Roof in July is unpredictable, alive, and true.

    UNCLE KENT 2

    Todd Rohal United States, 2015

    We know what you’re thinking, “but I haven’t seen the first Uncle Kent” (or perhaps “what is Uncle Kent?”), but don’t fret—this is an entirely standalone film. A happily egregious sequel to end all sequels, Todd Rohal’s film is a welcome cocktail of sincere absurdity and filmmaking as playfulness.

    THE ZONE

    Joe Swanberg United States, 2011

    A mysterious visitor spends the night at an apartment belonging to a young engaged couple and their friend. Over the course of the night and the following day he sleeps with all three roommates and then disappears, leading to conversations about God, life and filmmaking.
