MoviefiedNYC’s Opening this Weekend – January 24

24 Exposures – Simon Barrett

There are definitely some interesting films (Tim’s Vermeer, Like Father, Like Son, That Awkward Moment) opening this month but it just doesn’t compare to the the last quarter of 2013 where we have an over abundance of gems to pick from. I don’t know about you, but I’m still trying to catch up with all the big films (August Osage County, Her, Nebraska, etc) as awards season is already under way, not to mention all the documentaries I’m dying to see. (Cutie and the Boxer, Dirty Wars, etc). 
So, whether you choose to check out that indie you heard so much about or the latest big studio release, don’t forget to click on the movie title to view the trailer. We want to make sure you know what you are getting into before you head to the theater.

When one of Billy’s models winds up actually dead, depressed and romantically disillusioned investigator Michael (Simon Barrett), suffering through a crumbling relationship himself, knocks on his door and discovers a world he struggles to understand – in Billy’s art, as well as his apparent ease at juggling professional and intimate relationships with a committed girlfriend and various models.
