What's it About?

An author meets a stranger and has his life changed forever.

Why Should You Care?

First of all, it's a stop-motion animated movie that's decidedly for adults, and luckily isn't a Team America: World Police sequel. Secondly, it's by Charlie Kaufman, who wrote Being John Malkovich, and Adaptation. (among others), and also directed Synecdoche, New York. His is a bizarre mind, and it's one that's always fun to enter. It also raised much of its budget on Kickstarter, used 3D printers to make its puppets, and was met with rave reviews from film festivals. It's likely going to be one of the top 2 or 3 animated films of 2015.

What's it About?

During an expedition in the cold of winter, a man is attacked by a bear and left for dead by his group. However, he survived, and the film follows his journey to both find them and get his revenge on them.

Why Should You Care?

This is the movie that will win Leonardo DiCaprio his highly sought-after Oscar. It is also a movie that has caused pre-screening audiences to walk out, citing its graphic violence. Its director is Alejandro G. Inarritu, who won Oscars for last year's Birdman. This isn't one to miss.
