Your Must See New Releases of the Week
Ulrich Seidl’s Paradise: Love, which debuted in competition at Cannes last year and is the first part of Seidl’s Paradise trilogy, is likely the best choice for new movies this week.
The few review that have come in for Jonas Mekas’ Out-Takes from the Life of a Happy Man are even more enthusiastic, but you’ll have a hard time finding it since it’s an avant-garde film.
