Something has to fill up the 24-hour news cycle. If it’s not the generic panel shows that manufacture news in real-time, it’s the gas-bag pundits that perpetuate fear and manipulate the public’s perceptions. Gone Girl revels in satirizing the media circus as it overwhelms a suburban Missouri town when a wealthy woman goes missing.

They Came Together is a zany pastiche of romantic comedies; where predictable moments are appended by zany and out-of-context jokes.

Medeas is told not as a conventional narrative with formalist film grammar, but as a series of vignettes with Neorealist tendencies, placing a spotlight on the psycho-dramatic conflicts within each family member. As a character study, there is no delineation between protagonists and antagonists. The family is struggling economically, emotionally, and dynamically, both from natural human development and with reactive human emotion.

Tripods may have been too expensive for the production of Sand Castles, a film that also features a handful of scenes where the camera jerks around excessively, abusing the senses. Although that is not entirely fair, the film does sneak in a few sweeping crane shots during magic hour for that golden color bouncing off the cornfields. It’s a masturbatory shot meant to flex the filmmakers’ stylistic muscle, but instead firmly corners the film into an eye-rolling melodrama because these shots do not fit the scenes at all.

The art installation “Levitated Mass” is not about whether it is or is not art, or even about the artist’s intent. It is about the public and private sectors supporting a monument that defines a civilization and can deliver an abstract idea of that civilization thousands of years after its creation, like the Pyramids of Giza, the Sphinx, or Stonehenge. Perhaps long after the usefulness of the structure has passed. The documentary Levitated Mass chronicles the career of Michael Heizer and the judicious process to move a 340 ton boulder from a quarry 60 miles west of Los Angeles to the center of the Los Angeles County Museum of Art to be enshrined forever.
