Okay folks, let's get to it. Here are five independent features opening theatrically this August in the U.S. that just may be worth your attention and dollars. Two of the films I have seen, and the other three I am fairly eager or else very psyched to see. In addition, I've got a fascinating short documentary to share, plus a rundown of most of the other indie releases this month. If you live outside the U.S., what are the local titles you're most anticipating?           

PRINCE AVALANCHE (August 9th)

Could it be? A film by David Gordon Green that doesn't feature Seth Rogen and James Franco acting like dopes?

By no means does Prince Avalanche look to be in form with DGG's still much beloved debut George Washington, but it does have Paul Rudd and Emile Hirsch as two highway road workers who are at each others throats. It looks rather melancholy, which is usually a good thing, and it's also based on an Icelandic film --which makes sense on the melancholy front. So considering all of that, it seems to be worth checking out.
