Indiewire has weeded through the films hitting VOD this month to bring you 10 to look out for. Variety was key in selection, so you'll find everything from a gore fest set in a mental asylum, to a documentary on the world of poker, to Robert Pattinson's latest non-"Twilight" flick. Here are the ten films to watch on VOD this May, in alphabetical order:  

"Take This Waltz" (May 25)

Fans of Sarah Polley's stellar directorial debut "Away From Her" have been itching for a follow-up, and for good reason: That film came out in 2006. The Canadian actress/writer/director is finally back with her anticipated second feature, "Take This Waltz," starring Michelle Williams, Seth Rogen and Sarah Silverman. The romantic dramedy, which debuted to acclaim at last year's Toronto International Film Festival, centers on Margot (Williams), a happily married aspiring writer who begins taking a fancy to her neighbor (Luke Kirby) with disastrous results. See it on VOD before it opens this summer via Magnolia Pictures.

"With Great Power: The Stan Lee Story" (May 8)

With "The Avengers" opening this weekend in the US, there's never been a better time to get to know the man behind it all, the legendary comic-book icon Stan Lee. This comprehensive and star-studded love letter to Lee explores the life and imagination of the man behind "Spider-Man," "Iron Man," "X-Men" and "The Avengers."
