We've written about the plans to drill in the Marcellus Shale but Josh Fox's award-winning documentary makes the case against unregulated natural gas drilling with extraordinary skill and no small amount of art. Release date not announced.

Multiple Sarcasms
Set in 1979 NYC, the movie traces the arc of an unhappy architect (Timothy Hutton) who writes a play about his own life, leading to many unexpected paths of self-discovery. With Mira Sorvino, Dana Delany, and Stockard Channing. Release date not announced.

A documentary by Henry Joost and Upper West Sider Ariel Schulman that follows the latter's photographer brother, Nev, from New York to Michigan after a young girl contacts him about one of his images. A Sundance hit in part because of the debate about how authentic the documentary is. However you look at it, you're going to be talking about this one. Release date not announced.
