    • Excerpt: ‘The Overnighters’ is the captivating story about a series of despondent men trying to turn their luck around in the North Dakota oil fields and the pastor risking everything to help them do it.
  • [New – 3/5/15] | Steven Greydanus @ Crux
    • Excerpt: An existentially probing documentary with more layers than a twisty Hollywood thriller, at turns inspiring, challenging, sobering, and finally devastating.
