Film Review: One of Us
An eye-opening, emotionally wrenching documentary from the directors of 'Jesus Camp' about three young people fighting to escape New York’s strict Hasidic community.
Film Review: Only the Brave
Knockout work from Josh Brolin and Miles Teller sturdily anchors this sometimes-wobbly firefighter saga based on the 2013 Yarnall Hill disaster.
Film Review: Human Flow
Ai Weiwei’s sprawling dispatch from the frontlines of the worldwide refugee catastrophe is an ambitious call to action that’s very nearly undone by its sometimes self-defeating beauty.
Film Review: Lucky
This spare character study of a wiry old loner facing his mortality pays occasionally surreal homage to the wiry gravitas of Harry Dean Stanton.
Film Review: Copwatch
This flawed documentary about Copwatch volunteers from three American community-police flashpoints—New York, St. Louis and Baltimore—is big on vivid portraiture but less attuned to the issues at hand.
Film Review: The Villainess
'Hardcore Henry' meets 'La Femme Nikita' in this blood-soaked South Korean assassin’s ball.
Film Review: The Dark Tower
This campy, stripped-down summary of or sequel to (it’s confusing) Stephen King’s cross-dimensional fantasy western is a late-summer bummer.
Film Review: Detroit
Kathryn Bigelow’s latest nerve-scraper is another journalistic war film, only this time set not in the Middle East but the race-riot-shattered streets of America, circa 1967.
Film Review: Person to Person
A grab-bag of slacker-ish New Yorkers bumble through a day’s worth of anxiety-producing errands and quests in this nicely textured but only somewhat amusing comedy.
Film Review: Landline
Flippant anxiety romantic comedy from the team behind 'Obvious Child' shows that you can get pretty far but not quite all the way on wink-wink 1990s references and Jenny Slate.
