Quintessential ’00s indie from director Aaron Douglas Johnston (who’s up for an Independent Spirit Award for his latest effort, My Sister’s Quinceañera). A young woman from Amsterdam travels to a small American town (hence, “Bumblef**k”), armed with a video camera, to find out why her gay friend killed himself. She aims to paint a portrait of small-town gay life but ends up questioning her own sexual orientation in the process. Moody, slow, quiet, lots of shaky cam usage—if you like that kinda thing, you can find Bumblef**k on DVD, Vimeo, and using VOD services. Ariztical Entertainment (ariztical.com). —T.L.
