Take Shelter: In this beautifully modulated movie, a man considers sheltering his family from an apocalyptic storm that may just be in his head. Normalcy and abnormality fluidly coexist here, and it's sometimes a challenge for the viewer to know which is which.

Tiny Furniture: A recent college graduate (Lena Dunham) returns to Manhattan, moves back in with her family, pursues disastrous romances and generally flounders. Writer-director-star Dunham's low-budget, deceptively low-key comedy is perceptive and not a little sad.
