9. All These Sleepless Nights
Released: March 24
Director: Michal Marczak (F*ck for Forest)
Why it's great: Not so much an experience of the dream of youth but a dream of the experience of youth, Michal Marczak's film of two aimless, privileged 20-somethings floats through a year, mostly at night, as its subjects go to parties, drink, smoke, fall in and out of love, and fall in and out with each other. It is like a French New Wave film that isn't French nor as fun and just barely less fictional. It is the kind of documentary that many claim isn't really a documentary. Yes, there are scripted elements, but if you're looking for what's real and what isn't, you've overlooked the movie's real insight. Is anyone really real in their 20s anyway?
