The Top 10 Indies to Watch on VOD This May

"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."

    Netflix is like pay tv - these movies will end up there after theatrical/vod (that is if the distributor doesn't have a pay tv deal in which case it will go there first after theatrical/vod/dvd)- in terms of Fandor I have never heard of any of their "recent" movies nor have I seen anything there that isn't a silent movie in the public domain - in terms of MUBI they don't show new movies - they are a Netflix for film geeks IF you live in a country outside of the US - they have very few films worthwhile watching here in the US

    I realize I'm a dumb ass, but just to define terms, what constitutes VOD, exactly? Is it just cable? None of these movies are available on Netflix or MUBI. I found "All In" on VUDU, but I can't seem to find "Take This Waltz" anywhere. Made a quick search for a couple on Fandor and came up empty. I don't want to give plugs to random services, but is there one that might have most of these movies?

    That Kathleen Turner movie is a piece of trash and she is a has-been, hack actress.

    What's the matter between you and Kathleen Turner dude.

    Is your comment based on her outward appearance or her acting ability?
