Birdman Poster

Birdman

Review by Christy Lemire

One of the best times you'll have at the movies this year, and possibly the year's best film overall.

The Tale of Princess Kaguya Poster

The Tale of Princess Kaguya

Review by Glenn Kenny

"The Tale of Princess Kaguya" is both very simple and head-spinningly confounding, a thing of endless visual beauty that seems to partake in a kind of pictorial minimalism but finds staggering possibilities for beautiful variation within its ineluctable modality. It's…

Diplomacy Poster

Diplomacy

Review by Godfrey Cheshire

Essentially a two-hander even though it contains a number of minor characters, the film proves consistently absorbing thanks in large part to the adept, expertly calibrated work of its leads.

Fury Poster

Fury

Review by Peter Sobczynski

The trouble with "Fury" is that while stocking up on all the little details, Ayer has failed to provide much of a narrative for them to hang upon.

The Book of Life Poster

The Book of Life

Review by Susan Wloszczyna

Instead of being gaga for ghoulishness, this Mexican fiesta of animated splendor is packed with visual delights far more sunny than sinister as they burst forth as if flung from an over-packed piƱata.

Listen Up Philip Poster

Listen Up Philip

Review by Glenn Kenny

The terrific cast all delves into the material full-bore, which contributes to its peculiar resonance. Perry may hate everyone and everything, but in making a show of it, he's thoroughly entertaining.

Dear White People Poster

Dear White People

Review by Steven Boone

You could make a (film geek) party game out of guessing director Justin Simien's influences, but his vision seems to spring directly from what's up with his generation now.

Housebound Poster

Housebound

Review by Sheila O'Malley

Director Gerald Johnstone's humor seems to come from an acute sense of the absurd, and maintaining a tone of both horror and absurdity is one of his major accomplishments.

The Best of Me Poster

The Best of Me

Review by Susan Wloszczyna

"The Best of Me," the ninth Sparks-based film, falls squarely in the mediocre category and makes 2004's "The Notebook" seem like "Casablanca."

Young Ones Poster

Young Ones

Review by Glenn Kenny

Too bland to qualify as a really notable disaster, "Young Ones" finds young Paltrow still trying to find his voice. If he intends to continue on this career path, he'd best accelerate a bit, as he's almost 40.

Watchers of the Sky Poster

Watchers of the Sky

Review by Sheila O'Malley

While the film is not optimistic, and it does not provide "hope for the future" or anything equally as facile, it is a powerful reminder of the importance of the struggle itself.

Camp X-Ray Poster

Camp X-Ray

Review by Matt Zoller Seitz

This debut feature by writer-director Peter Sattler has cinematic and moral intelligence.

I Am Ali Poster

I Am Ali

Review by Matt Zoller Seitz

There's not much new information in this documentary about Muhammad Ali, but the never-before-seen footage and photos make it worth a look for completists.
