    Review: Lynn Shelton's 'Touchy Feely' Starring Rosemarie DeWitt, Ellen Page & Josh Pais

    There's a strange and opaque energy coursing through the veins of Lynn Shelton's languid fifth feature-length effort, "Touchy Feely." It's a little mysterious, to the film’s moody credit, and it’s a little unavailable and removed, to its detriment. Lead actress Rosemarie DeWitt admitted, "I didn't r...

But -- Tomatometer be damned -- Hannah Fidell's indie "A Teacher" is nonetheless a must-see, anchored by a startlingly complex performance from Lindsay Burdge as a high school teacher whose illicit affair with one of her st...

    Interview: 'Touchy Feely' Director Lynn Shelton Talks Her Meditative Film, Cronenbergian Deleted Scenes & More

    A different form of improvisation is felt in “Touchy Feely,” the fifth feature from Lynn Shelton; instead of the loose outlines and dialogue of the director’s recent films (“Your Sister’s Sister,” “Humpday”), it’s the film’s subjective and technical experience that feels crafted on the spot and ceme...
