Indiewire has weeded through the films hitting VOD this month to bring you the ten to look out for. You'll find everything from an ensemble globe spanning drama, to a Danish sex comedy, to a documentary that gets to the bottom of what it means to be a man in the 21st century. Here are the ten films to watch on VOD this July, in alphabetical order:
1

"Last Ride" (July 1)

Hugo Weaving gives a commanting turn in "Last Ride," a road movie set in the South Australian outback that centers on ex-jailbird fugitive father Kev (Weaing), who is on the run from the law with his 10-year old son Chook (newcomer Tom Russell) in tow. The film marks the directorial debut of Australian filmmaker Glendyn Ivin, whose short "Cracker Bag" won the Palme d'Or for Best Short at the 2003 Cannes Film Festival.

"Man in the Glass: The Dale Brown Story" (July 1)

Former Louisiana State University Head Men's Basketball Coach Dale Brown gets profiled in this entertaining expose that shows how he took what was a fledging team, and turned them into one of the most feared in the country. Patrick Sheenan enlists the help of Matthew McConaughey, Shaquille O'Neal and John Wooden to craft a full portrait of the man who garnered both fans and detractors for his unorthodox behavior during his run as Coach.

"Mansome" (July 17)

Morgan Spurlock is back at it again with this raucous and entertaining documentary produced by Will Arnett, Jason Bateman and Ben Silverman, that takes a light hearted look at what it means to be a man in the 21st century. Traveling to traditional barbershops and trend-savvy salons across the country and attending an international beard contest in Austria, Spurlock shows us the art of being a man -- and it's a lot of work! Arnett, Bateman, Paul Rudd and Zach Galifianakis all make appearances.

"She Monkeys" (July 17)

Audience Award Winner at the 2011 Tribeca Film Festival, the Swedish drama "She Monkeys" explores the competitive relationship between two teenage girls engaged in equestrian vaulting (aka gymnastics on horseback). If that sounds intense, it is. The film marks a very promising directorial debut for Lisa Aschan.
