Spring 2014 Preview - 26 Films to Watch This Season

As we enter into Spring, we leave behind the Blockbuster season and get into some of the smaller indie releases, long delayed foreign language titles and potentially some awards contenders.

I am going to be away for most of September, but I have seen a lot of the films released that month as it is. I can highly recommend Boyhood, What We Do In The Shadows, Night Moves, The Immigrant, Jodorowsky's Dune and The Skeleton Twins. 

But before I list the 26 films I suggest keeping an eye out for, here's a recap of the films I viewed over the last three months.
