Film Review: Peppermint
Opening on the heels of the lackluster Bruce Willis/Eli Roth remake of 'Death Wish,' this distaff revenge thriller has nothing new to say about vigilante justice.
Film Review: God Bless the Broken Road
A young widow struggles to raise her daughter amidst financial woes in this drama from the director of 'God's Not Dead.'
Film Review: White Boy Rick
Yann Demange tells the true story of a young Detroit convict with the same thrilling panache that informed his debut, '’71.' Despite certain structural gaffes, 'White Boy Rick' observantly portrays a family stuck in a cycle of despair.
Film Review: First Man
Technically marvelous, Damien Chazelle’s poetic moon-landing saga intimately portrays the thorny headspace of quiet American hero Neil Armstrong. Ryan Gosling gives a career-best performance.
Film Review: The Little Stranger
A classy, quiet, cryptically sculptured ghost story clever enough to retain its mystery, 'The Little Stranger' will trigger post-show discussions and cerebral hangovers.
Film Review: Kin
An admirable but low-impact mash-up.
Film Review: Operation Finale
Retribution thriller recounting the capture of Holocaust mastermind Adolph Eichmann has its moments but fails to deliver new insights.
Film Review: A.X.L.
Film Review: The Happytime Murders
Brian Henson goes for shock value in this noir-inspired tale of pervy puppets. The only thing shocking is how bad it manages to be.
Film Review: Papillon
Ambitious but emotionally hollow remake of the hit 1973 Steve McQueen/Dustin Hoffman starrer about the hellish ordeal of real-life Devil’s Island inmate and escapee Henri Charrière.
