Flavorwire’s Guide to Indie Movies You Need to See in September

September is a weird, weird time at the movies. The summer is over, and the studios have buried the movies they don’t want to deal with in mid-to-late August (hi there, We Are Your Friends). In theory, the fall movie season is underway — but the serious awards contenders are being held for the big festivals (Toronto, Telluride, and New York), which means the mainstream releases are an odd brew of movies the studios think grown-ups will like, but aren’t willing to bank on. And the art house has a similar timing issue, but there, we have an upside: an eclectic mix of ace documentaries and offbeat surprises.
