Furiosa: A Mad Max Saga

As the world fell, young Furiosa is snatched from the Green Place of Many Mothers and falls into the hands of a great Biker Horde led by the Warlord Dementus. Sweeping through the Wasteland, they come across the Citadel presided over by The Immortan Joe. While the two Tyrants war for dominance, Furiosa must survive many trials as she puts together the means to find her way home.

La Chimera

Set in the 1980s, in the former Etruscian landscape of rural Italy, Arthur, a vagabond-type character, is mourning the loss of his love. A local ragtag group of graverobbers make use of his archaeological skills to find ancient tombs filled with artefacts, but Arthur uses the digs to search for a door to the afterlife, of which myths speak, where he imagines reuniting with her.

Hit Man

Oscar-nominated director Richard Linklater's sunlit neo-noir stars Glen Powell as strait-laced professor Gary Johnson, who moonlights as a fake hit man for the New Orleans Police Department. Preternaturally gifted at inhabiting different guises and personalities to catch hapless people hoping to bump off their enemies, Gary descends into morally dubious territory when he finds himself attracted to one of those potential criminals, a beautiful young woman named Madison (Adria Arjona). As Madison falls for one of Gary's hit man personas -- the mysteriously sexy Ron -- their steamy affair sets off a chain reaction of play acting, deception, and escalating stakes.

The Fall Guy

He’s a stuntman, and like everyone in the stunt community, he gets blown up, shot, crashed, thrown through windows and dropped from the highest of heights, all for our entertainment. And now, fresh off an almost career-ending accident, this working-class hero has to track down a missing movie star, solve a conspiracy and try to win back the love of his life while still doing his day job. What could possibly go right?

Jellied Reels: Schizopolis

Created as a guerilla project by Steven Soderbergh (Sex, Lies and Videotape; Ocean's Trilogy; Magic Mike) with himself as writer, director and star, Schizopolis leaps into uncharted territories of the absurd. Shot on a micro-budget in a self-imposed exile in his Louisiana hometown, and also starring his real ex-wife, Soderbergh's departure from his previous mainstream success is more than worth a curious glance. A deranged comedy of confused identity, doublespeak, and white-knuckled 90s corporate intrigue, Schizopolis reinforced Soderbergh's status as one of America?s most daring, unpredictable, and frankly, bizarre filmmakers. "...all attempts at synopzing the film have ended in failure and hospitalization" - Steven Soderbergh "...an experimental movie with the emphasis on the mental" - Total Film "a riotous Möbius strip of deranged word games and doppelgänger metaphysics, a scalding allegory of professional and personal disappointment" - Dennis Lim Jellied Reels serves up screenings of the best films you've never tried (and won't find on streaming)...
