Anderson's "Master" case study on the culture of Scientology, cults and scoundrels, an Omnibus Horror Anthology, an overlooked American indie, and a Michael Haneke classic. Onward!

Ard Vijn, Niels Matthijs and Ryland Aldrich contributed to this story.


Found footage from space. This well received, but certainly not perfect film, picked up some fans (and detractors) on the festival circuit this year. Sharlto Copley seems to be making a name for himself in the genre, however.

Our own festival editor, Ryland Aldrich wrote: "Director Sebastián Cordero brings a well-tuned human element to this space exploration drama that succeeds on the strength of the performances and interactions between characters. Though the storytelling gets more than a bit mushy in the editing room, ultimately Europa Report gets it right and provides a very enjoyable sci-fi ride. "
