The Boxtrolls Poster

The Boxtrolls

Review by Sheila O'Malley

"The Boxtrolls" is a beautiful example of the potential in LAIKA's stop-motion approach, and the images onscreen are tactile and layered. But, as always, it's the story that really matters, and the story told here is funny, ugly, poignant and…

The Equalizer Poster

The Equalizer

Review by Susan Wloszczyna

If "The Equalizer" lacks gravitas, it is fairly sturdy as far as pure entertainment goes—and the actor takes his stealth vigilante as seriously as he does his Oscar-nominated performances in "Flight" or "Malcolm X," pulling out that patented charm as…

Pride Poster

Pride

Review by Odie Henderson

Takes a formulaic approach but is ultimately very effective in its retelling of the fundraising activities of Lesbians and Gays Support the Miners. Would make a good musical.

Lilting Poster

Lilting

Review by Dan Callahan

Ben Whishaw is one of the few working actors that you really should see in everything, and though "Lilting" doesn't give him enough to play with, it does offer the pleasure of watching him in the full flower of his…

The Two Faces of January Poster

The Two Faces of January

Review by Odie Henderson

Viggo Mortensen is excellent in this twisty throwback to '60s thrillers. Based on a Patricia Highsmith book, so you know the characters are up to no damn good.

Good People Poster

Good People

Review by Glenn Kenny

"Good People" ends up in the kind of no-man's-land that no movie, least of all a genre picture, wants to be in: it's engaging enough while one is watching it, but not distinctive enough to make it special, or, in…

Jimi: All Is by My Side Poster

Jimi: All Is by My Side

Review by Christy Lemire

What's fascinating about "Jimi: All Is By My Side" is not only its decision to show us this particular chapter in Hendrix's life, but also the way it teases out the shadings in a famous figure we only think we…

The Song Poster

The Song

Review by Susan Wloszczyna

Treat "The Song" as a kind of guilty pleasure, a not particularly good movie that nonetheless entertains in spite of itself.

Two Night Stand Poster

Two Night Stand

Review by Glenn Kenny

Tipton and Teller, neither of whom is conventionally glamorous, mesh well together, and Nichols keeps their exchanges brisk and makes the most of the limited cinematic space the scenario demands he work with.
