The Top 10 Indies to Watch on VOD This February

"Sound City" (February 1)

Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl makes a stellar filmmaking debut with "Sound City," a documentary that recently premiered to great notices at Sundance. The film tracks Grohl's journey to resurrect Sound City, a legendary recording studio that opened in 1969 in the San Fernando Valley, only to close with the advent of the digital age. Together with some of his musically-inclined friends who used to frequent the studio (Steve Nicks, Neil Young, Tom Petty, Trent Reznor, Rick Springfield and Paul McCartney), Grohl sets out to create a one-of-a-kind album on the historic soundboard.

First-Time Director Dave Grohl Admits: 'I haven't the slightest idea how this sh*t works'

Where to Find: iTunes, Amazon, Charter, Comcast, Google Play, DirecTV, Playstation, SuddenLink, Time Warner, Verizon FIOS, Vudu and XBOX.


 

"Would You Rather" (February 8)

A truly twisted take on the eponymous party game, "Would You Rather" stars Brittany Snow as Iris, a young woman who'll do anything to save her terminally ill younger brother. She can't refuse when an aristocrat 'philanthropist' invites her to his dinner party to compete in a sadistic game of money, desperation, and torture. Suffice to say, the stakes are deadly.

Where to Find: iTunes, Amazon, Charter, Comcast, Google Play, DirecTV, Playstation, SuddenLink, Time Warner, Verizon FIOS, Vudu and XBOX.


 

"Wrong" (Feburary 1)

With total disregard for Hollywood convention, odd-ball writer-director-musician Quentin Dupieux ("Rubber") brings another eccentric vision to the screen with "Wrong," a story about one man's journey to find his missing dog. Mind-bending and absurd in all the right ways, Jack Plotnick and the fantastic William Fichtner star in this illogical love letter to pets everywhere.

Were to Find: iTunes, Amazon, Charter, Comcast, Google Play, DirecTV, Playstation, SuddenLink, Time Warner, Verizon FIOS, Vudu and XBOX.


 

"Versaille '73: American Runway Revolution" (February 12)

When a group of top African American models boarded a plane to Paris in 1973, they had no idea they would pull off fashion’s biggest coup. Pitting the crème de la crème of French couture fashion -- Givenchy, Dior, Ungaro, Yves Saint Laurent and Pierre Cardin against upstart American designers Halston, Oscar de la Renta, Anne Klein, Stephen Burrows and Bill Blass, the 1973 Grand Divertissement at Versailles was not only the first time French and American designers battled on the runway, but smashed the glass ceiling irrevocably for ethnic models in high fashion across the globe. This entertaining doc is the closest you'll come to reliving the legendary fashion standoff.

Where to Find: iTunes, Amazon, YouTube, Playstation, Vudu, and XBOX.
