Bitter Feast Bitter Feast

Peter Grey’s culinary career is quickly coming to an end. When ruthless food blogger J.T. Franks pans Grey’s restaurant, the furious chef devises the ultimate cooking lesson. Chained in the basement of Grey’s remote country home, Franks is taught, in exceedingly sadistic ways, just how hard it is to satisfy his own standards. Featuring a cameo performance by superstar chef Mario Batali, this deliciously fiendish film pits artist against critic, presenting its own very well done concoction of a culinary monster.

Black Field Black Field

In 17th-century Greece, a wounded slave-soldier takes refuge at a cliffside convent, forever changing the life of Anthi, a convent resident. Quiet and solemn, even for a nun, Anthi is not all she seems to be. Rooted within the epic scope of historical Greece during the Great Turkish War, Black Field elegantly focuses on the near-mythic love story between Anthi and the soldier, using remarkable, eerie visuals to chronicle Anthi’s path to freedom and self-discovery.

Love Life of a Gentle Coward Love Life of a Gentle Coward

The titular coward in this whimsical comedy is a gentle man, in the most unfortunate sense of the term. His ex-wife taunts him, his child ignores him, and his boss berates him; but his extreme meekness renders him unable to speak out against this harsh treatment. When he finally gets in touch with his inner alpha male after meeting Ines, a pretty and opinionated masseuse, he finds that speaking his mind carries its own brand of trouble.
