If September is known for one thing, it’s movies! (Well, that and Labor Day, changing seasons, state fairs, football, and going back to school.) But it’s the September movies we care most about, so that’s what we’re here to delve into. Check out what movies the SAGindie staff have added to their must-see lists for this month.
Honorable mention (already seen): Monsters and Men
Come on, who doesn’t want to see Robert Redford as an ol’ rapscallion bank robber in The Old Man & the Gun? Other than that, there’s a trio of documentaries about artists I greatly admire: Hal (Ashby), Love Gilda (Radner), and Bad Reuptation (Joan Jett). There’s Jennifer Garner doing an action movie(?!) in Peppermint (that title, though…). There’s the true story of White Boy Rick. There’s Reinaldo Marcus Green’s Monsters and Men. And finally, the very mysterious looking Hold the Dark, which marks the welcomed return of Jeremy Saulnier (this time working on Netflix’s dime).
