After a peculiar incident involving the disappearance of a young boy (Noah Schnapp), a chain of mysterious events tear at the fabric of an otherwise peaceful community.
Some have labeled Dazed and Confused as one of the greatest hangout movies of all-time. It’s a movie you watch not only for its artistic qualities and good banter, but also as a genuinely fun experience spending time with its enjoyable characters.
Inspiration can come from a variety of sources, but film can be a particularly powerful medium to learn from. Opening this Friday is Captain Fantastic, an exceptional film that offers much knowledge about the world, most notably navigating the rocky terrains of parenting.

Jeff Nichols has become one of those filmmakers who makes you stand up and take notice with each new feature.

I mainly clicked “repeat” just to see Andy Samberg embrace and poke fun at the ridiculousness of celebrity culture. Whether he’s buying things he doesn’t need or muttering Kanye-like lines like “It takes a village to make me look dope,” it’s hysterical.
When it comes to watching movies, very little is worse than being disappointed by one. I’m talking about those movies that leave you eager with anticipation, counting down the days and reserving your tickets in advance, only to discover that everything you imagined in your head didn’t quite make it on screen.
A small audience at the University of North Texas’ Lyceum Theater got a first look at North Texas-based director Brett Bentman’s new independent film "Pale" on Saturday night.
