Margin Call 

NANTUCKET FILM FESTIVAL | June 22–26

If you miss Vera Farmiga at Provincetown, just book a ferry ride to Nantucket, where she is also being honored — receiving the festival's Compass Rose Acting Award. (Way to go, Vera!) Plus she's screening her directorial debut, Higher Ground, in which she also stars. The festival also acknowledges the underrated art of the screenplay, presenting its annual Screenwriting Tribute to Oscar winner Paul Haggis (Crash; The Next Three Days) and its New Voices in Screenwriting award to Ben Queen, who wrote Cars 2, the festival's opening-night film. Not very indie, perhaps, but other offerings are less mainstream, like Margin Call, J.C. Chandor's dramatization of the 2008 economic meltdown. And be sure to drop in on Ben Stiller's annual, ever-popular "All Star Comedy Roundtable," not to mention his mother Anne Meara's "Late Night Storytelling" session with special guest, Emmy-nominated Mike O'Malley from Glee.

    In Roman Coppola's sophomoric second feature (his 2001 debut CQ was promising), Charlie Sheen shows restraint as the titular asshole, a dissolute ad designer and solipsistic whiner who's mooning over the loss of his latest love.
  •   REVIEW: UPSIDE DOWN  |  March 14, 2013
    Had Ed Wood Jr. directed Fritz Lang's Metropolis , he couldn't have achieved the earnest dopiness of Juan Solanas's sci-fi allegory — nor the striking images.
