Saturday Night Movie Recommendations with Abe

Welcome back to a weekly feature here at Movies With Abe. I'm going to be providing a handy guide to a few choice movies currently playing in theatres as well as several films newly released on DVD and Netflix. I invite you to add in your thoughts on any films I haven’t seen in the comments below.

Now Playing in Theatres

1985 (recommended): This black-and-white film tells an affecting story of a young man returning to his childhood home where he struggles to be able to come out to the conservative family he hasn’t seen for years. Now playing at the Quad Cinema. Read my review from yesterday.

New to DVD

I Think We’re Alone Now (recommended): Peter Dinklage and Elle Fanning star in a post-apocalyptic drama from “The Handmaid’s Tale” director Reed Morano that’s slower and more contemplative than other dystopias but still manages to be effective and worthwhile.

Sorry to Bother You (mixed bag): This trippy comedy starring Lakeith Stanfield as a telemarketer who soars to incredible heights using his “white voice” is unapologetically strange and occasionally effective in its own individualistic way.
