On the eve of the 2016 U.S. presidential election, and on its final night before closing, a Las Vegas dive bar becomes a stage where its employees and barflies commiserate one last time. Filmmaking brothers Bill and Turner Ross train their keenly observed quasi-fiction on the lived-in atmosphere of a haunt, whose massed warmth and love conceal its patron’s worries—at least for a little while. Bloody Nose, Empty Pockets is a carefully constructed yet oddly affecting record of an American sensibility at once straining to survive and ready for the end.

Before STRANGER THINGS combined science fiction, Spielbergian touches and ‘80s nostalgia to much acclaim, Richard Kelly set the high-water mark with this debut feature. Arguably the first cult classic of the new millennium this 4 K restoration is as eerie as ever. Donnie is a troubled high school student: in therapy, prone to sleepwalking and in possession of an imaginary friend, a six-foot rabbit named Frank, who tells him the world is going to end in 28 days 06 hours 42 minutes and 12 seconds.

Powered by fantastic performances similar to Deniz Gamze Ergüven's film Mustang of a few years back Rocks focuses on the friendship of a group of young black 15-year-old girls from Hackney growing up in London’s East End. Honest poignant and raucous this is the best film you will see this year. From food fights to real fights to jubilant moments such as the girls dancing around on a roof top belting Tina Turner at the top of their lungs Rocks whips up a heartfelt refreshing coming of age tale.
