New Movies on Showtime 

Mulholland Dr.

“A love story in the city of dreams,” is how director David Lynch would describe Mulholland Dr. After a woman (played by Laura Elena Harring) becomes an amnesiac after a car accident, she meets aspiring actress Betty Elms (played by Naomi Watts) and the two venture to find out what her true identity is. Although the meaning of this surrealist film is highly contested, one thing is for certain — Mulholland Dr. is a beautifully executed film that you should add to your watch list for the summer!


Fences is the film adaptation of the Pulitzer Prize-winning play Fences. It stars Denzel Washington and Viola Davis who play husband and wife Troy Maxson and Rose Maxson. Troy is a garbage collector living in Pittsburg who once dreamed of becoming a professional baseball player. However, Major League Baseball did not allow black athletes to play during his prime, so he was unable to achieve his dream. His bitterness over this causes him to disagree with his son’s dreams of becoming a football player, causing tension in his family. The film was chosen by the American Film Institute as one of the top ten films of 2016 and was praised for the actors’ emotional performances. It was also nominated for four Oscars with Viola Davis winning Best Supporting Actress


The seven deadly sins: envy, gluttony, greed, lust, pride, sloth, and wrath. Se7en follows two detectives William Somerset and David Mills who investigate a serial killer whose murders are inspired by the seven deadly sins. If you’re an amateur detective or looking for a twist that might haunt you, give Se7en a watch!
