Kill the Messenger Poster

Kill the Messenger

Review by Glenn Kenny

The story of a crusading reporter's determined search for truth, "Kill The Messenger" gains its not-inconsiderable power by not being the kind of movie that particular description might lead you to expect.

St. Vincent Poster

St. Vincent

Review by Brian Tallerico

"St. Vincent" is a piece of very well-made cheese, a movie in which one can feel its manipulations and heart-string pulling, but the talented ensemble makes those critical talking points easy to dismiss.

Whiplash Poster

Whiplash

Review by Brian Tallerico

Carried by two electric performances, the tightest editing in a film this year and a daring screenplay that writes itself into a corner and then somehow finds an unexpected way out, "Whiplash" is one of this year's best films.

The Judge Poster

The Judge

Review by Susan Wloszczyna

Ultimately, it is the core father-son relationship that is put on trial, but you have to wait until the end before Dobkin unclenches his need to control and just allows Downey and Duvall to fearlessly go at it together at…

Dracula Untold Poster

Dracula Untold

Review by Simon Abrams

Evans is surprisingly good at smoldering, and special-effects-reliant shots of Vlad turning into a monster are usually pretty enticing. There's not much more to "Dracula Untold," but it does periodically throb with surface-deep tension.

Evolution of a Criminal Poster

Evolution of a Criminal

Review by Matt Zoller Seitz

In 1997, 17-year old Darius Clark Monroe robbed a bank and went to prison for it; then he went to film school and made this movie.

The Overnighters Poster

The Overnighters

Review by Godfrey Cheshire

While "The Overnighters" has the feel of an epic, given what an expansive slice of America's current economic experience it ponders, it's also a very intimate one.

One Chance Poster

One Chance

Review by Christy Lemire

It's a familiar British comedy that is winning nonetheless, mostly thanks to an irresistible lead performance from James Corden.

Autómata Poster

Autómata

Review by Odie Henderson

With its robots specializing in pleasure and pain, and its radioactive deserts, this should be a lot more fun than it is. Instead, it is an overly somber, confused slog.

Dead Snow 2: Red vs. Dead Poster

Dead Snow 2: Red vs. Dead

Review by Simon Abrams

Like so many other post-"Shaun of the Dead" horror-comedies, the execution of "Dead Snow 2" is rarely as funny as the concept.

The Blue Room Poster

The Blue Room

Review by Scout Tafoya

The subtle directionality of the compositions and the constant shifts from the present to the past, "The Blue Room" often feels like a work of cinematic futurism, not dissimilar to the films of Steven Soderbergh.
