Short list of the most interesting film titles on release in cinemas this September. As usual the choice is purely subjective, just my selection of flicks to take your mates and dates to. Most titles will be in nationwide distribution across US and will be available in most English speaking countries, although as you can see by some entries below – if a movie is in limited distribution but gives the right vibe – it ends up on the page anyway. As usual, if you have any notes or suggestions, please do not hesitate to submit them via comments feature at the bottom of the page. Type away. I do not byte.
