Five more with promise 

"American Animal"

dir. Matt D'Elia, 95 min.

Writer-director-editor Matt D'Elia also produced this narrative about a solipsistic, terminally ill man, also played by D'Elia, who lives with his best friend in a downtown L.A. apartment. Brent Renaud acknowledges that indies by multi-hyphenates are rarely good, but says this film heralds a major talent in D'Elia. 8:15 p.m. Fri., 3:20 p.m. Sat., Riverdale

"Fleurs du mal" ("Flowers of Evil")

dir. David Dusa, 98 min.

YouTube footage of the 2009 post-election protest in Iran informs the budding romance between a Parisian hotel clerk and a Tehrani college student exiled in Paris by overprotective parents in this buzz-y, experimental drama.

"Happy New Year"

dir. K. Lorrel Manning, 104 min.

A fiction film about a mentally and physically scarred veteran trying to find his way in the psychiatric ward of a Veterans Hospital that's earned comparisons to "One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest." 6 p.m. Thu., 3:20 p.m. Sat., Riverdale.

"Revenge of the Electric Car"

dir. Chris Paine, 90 min.

Chris Paine's sequel to his acclaimed "Who Killed the Electric Car?" follows the entrepreneurs and captains of industry as they furiously work to build affordable and normal-looking electric cars. 3:45 p.m. Fri., 11:15 a.m. Sat., Riverdale.

"Wrestling for Jesus: The Tale of T-Money"

dir. Nathan Clarke, 70 min.

How can you deny a documentary with a title like that? The plot's even better: Evangelical Christian Timothy Blackmon founds an amateur Christian wrestling league and has to deal with injuries, balancing time with family and a rival backyard wrestling crew called the Throne of Anguish. 8:45 p.m. Thu., 2:05 p.m. Sun., Riverdale.
