Each year, the Sundance Film Festival premieres a wealth of movies, and some—like this year’s Oscar contenders “Whiplash” and “Boyhood“—explode into bigger and better things. Others, like the low-key “Memphis,” which hit Park City in January last year, need a bit more space to find their groove. If you missed the indie drama at your local arthouse last year, it arrives on home video this week and we’ve got some copies for a few lucky readers.
Starring musician Willis Earl Beal, and written and directed by Tim Sutton (“Pavilion“), the fragmentary film follows a talented musician drifting through the titular city, opting for self-discovery instead of recording music. It’s film with a unique vibe all its own, and those looking for something a little bit under the radar, and a little special, should seek this out. So, how do you win?
