Digging For Fire

September 02, 2015 8:00 PM - September 03, 2015 8:00 PM

The latest film from prolific independent director Joe Swanberg (Drinking Buddies, Happy Christmas, V/H/S) follows a married couple caught in the havoc of raising a small child. Tim (Jake Johnson) and Lee (Rosemarie DeWitt) take a break from each other to gain some breathing room: Lee takes their son to visit her family while Tim stays back to reminisce with old friends. Lee, disappointed in the stagnancy of her life with Tim, quickly begins to question the life waiting for her at home, while Tim finds his curiosity piqued by an old bone and antique gun he discovers in the yard. Thanks to the prodding of his wild companions, he becomes convinced that with a little digging, they could unearth the rest of the mystery. Both husband and wife find themselves trapped in a web of temptation and impulse as each try to stay true to the type of people they believe themselves to be.

Steve Jobs: The Man in the Machine

September 04, 2015 8:00 PM - September 10, 2015 8:00 PM

Quick on the heels of his successful documentary on the inner workings of the Church of Scientology, Alex Gibney turns on one of the most well-known minds of our time with Steve Jobs: the Man in the Machine, acting as an insight into the true nature of what it meant to be the visionary behind Apple's successes. Delivering a scathing review of Jobs' victories as well as his failures, Gibney examines everything from the character of the early computing scene to the deeply personal connection Apple consumers seemed to feel for Jobs, even after his death in 2011. Through interviews with colleagues, family, and consumers, The Man in the Machine illustrates just how much influence one mind can have on an entire generation.

The Mend

September 11, 2015 8:00 PM - September 17, 2015 8:00 PM

A blisteringly funny cavalcade of rage, self-doubt, lust, frustrated masculinity, and other brotherly-hand-me-downs, The Mend is an impressive debut comedy about the frenetic fraternal discord between brothers Mat (Josh Lucas) and Alan (Stephen Plunkett). When his relationship suddenly flames out, an unhinged Mat plunks down on Alan's couch just as Alan prepares for a carefully planned getaway with his girlfriend (Mickey Sumner). Soon, a despondent Alan returns by his lonesome, and the brothers barrel through a downward spiral of muted madness and harbored aggression. Deliriously battling against electricity outages, broken bathroom doors, bed bug threats, and an annoyingly evasive ice cream truck, the brothers wrestle with each others' existence and their own demons.

The more things change, the more they stay the same. The immersive documentary The Black Panthers: Vanguard of the Revolution recalls conditions and injustices that bear a stark similarity to more current headlines. Objectively and deftly told by director Stanley Nelson, this is a chronicle of the revolutionaries who fought for racial justice when it was downright dangerous.

Puget Soundtrack: Tim Held Presents Predator

September 19, 2015 8:00 PM

Just east of North Bend on Interstate-90 there is a large exposed rock face that is covered in some sort of neon-green slime. It is likely moss or some sort of botanical organism, but there is an outside chance that my darkest childhood fears are true and it is actually the Predator's blood.
