You won't see these trailers watching reruns of The Big Bang Theory. Most of America misses out on the largely independent slate of underrated flicks at the box office. They never come to small towns. You have to be Pulp Fiction, taking the world by storm to get any love in Rome NY or Jupiter, FL. 

But awareness is half the battle, and seeking out great movies makes you love them that much more. This month, Viggo Mortensen is at the center of an existential crisis in the middle of the Algerian War in Far From Men. Documentarian Amy Berg (West of Memphis) tries her hand at feature work with a child abduction thriller. One of the year's best documentaries, The Seven Five, tells the story of the dirtiest cop in New York. Quentin Dupieux (Rubber, Wrong) returns with another mind-bending comedy. And Computer Chess mastermind Andrew Bujalski's second film, Results, shows that he may have some Duplass brothers in him. See the trailers for these five promising movies below:
