Film Review: Southpaw
Jake Gyllenhaal’s intense lead performance elevates this boxing drama’s formulaic melodrama.
Film Review: Self/Less
Dull body-swapping drama that barely bothers to exploit its out-there premise for moral drama or outrageous thrills.
Film Review: A Murder in the Park
Bland nonfiction aesthetics can’t fully quell the outrage elicited by this documentary about the injustices surrounding a famed Chicago death-penalty case.
Film Review: Soaked in Bleach
Awkward docudrama that mixes nonfiction and fictionalized elements to make the unconvincing speculative case that Courtney Love was somehow responsible for Kurt Cobain’s death.
Film Review: Sunshine Superman
Gorgeous, thrilling bio-doc about the godfather of BASE jumping that’s energized by its subject’s personal peak-leaping movie footage.
Film Review: The Seven Five
A documentary about New York City’s most dishonorable cop, whose countless sordid stories fail to impart anything new about law-enforcement criminality.
Film Review: The Age of Adaline
A magic-realist fable that, save for a sturdy supporting turn from Harrison Ford, is as unoriginal as it is sluggish.
Film Review: Salad Days: A Decade of Punk in Washington, DC (1980-1990)
A portrait of the Washington, D.C. punk-rock scene that’s awash in affection but light on critical context.
Film Review: Child 44
A hopelessly convoluted serial-killer period piece that squanders its illustrious cast.
