Sound City
Dave Grohl’s rock-doc about legendary California recording studio Sound City, where Fleetwood Mac, Neil Young, Rick Springfield, Tom Petty, Metallica, Nirvana and hundreds more laid down analog tracks. Not available on 8mm. (Variance)

When a perma-drunk schoolteacher (Mary Elizabeth Winstead) is forced to sober up and join AA, she discovers dealing with her husband (Aaron Paul), family and co-workers is a pain in the ass. Alternate film title: Duh! (Sony Pictures Classics)

Casting Couch
Six “college” dudes who appear to be in their 30s cast a fake movie in order to get girls naked and use them for sex and/or floatation devices. Scoff all you want—Argo won Oscars and Golden Globes with essentially the same premise. (Screen Media)

In Their Skin
A city couple (Selma Blair and Joshua Close) move to the countryside, only to discover that their new neighbors are violent nutjobs; the usual Funny Games tension and moral refrains ensue. Lesson: Stay away from the countryside. (IFC Films)

This Must Be the Place
