The DUFF Poster

The DUFF

Review by Christy Lemire

Whitman displays flawless comic timing and consistently makes inspiring choices in terms of delivery, reaction, even the slightest facial expression. She shines confidently in a self-deprecating role, and it's irresistible.

McFarland USA Poster

McFarland USA

Review by Glenn Kenny

A feel-good movie that pretty much anyone can feel good about feeling good about. Particularly Costner fans.

Queen and Country Poster

Queen and Country

Review by Godfrey Cheshire

For cinephiles who've followed this 82-year-old British filmmaker's long and sometimes eccentric career with interest and admiration, Queen and Country will be a sure winner.

Hot Tub Time Machine 2 Poster

Hot Tub Time Machine 2

Review by Peter Sobczynski

Unless the idea of a half-naked Rob Coddry acting like the worst human being imaginable (a far cry from the occasionally sympathetic version of the character seen the first time around) for 90 minutes strikes you as comedic gold, Hot…

Wild Tales Poster

Wild Tales

Review by Godfrey Cheshire

Any of these tales separated from the whole could surely win prizes at short-film competitions. Together, their collective impact proves the synergistic effect of true artistic vision.

All the Wilderness Poster

All the Wilderness

Review by Susan Wloszczyna

It is odd and disappointing how Johnson gets almost everything right but fails when it comes to the undernourished script.

Drunktown's Finest Poster

Drunktown's Finest

Review by Mark Dujsik

Writer/director Sydney Freeland's debut feature displays considerable restraint in its finale, although that determination only comes after witnessing an onslaught of complications that pile upon the movie's trio of central characters.

Digging Up the Marrow Poster

Digging Up the Marrow

Review by Simon Abrams

Gett, the Trial of Viviane Amsalem Poster

Gett, the Trial of Viviane Amsalem

Review by Matt Zoller Seitz

Gett, the Trial of Vivane Amsalem is a quietly gripping courtroom drama in which a particular social problem (divorce in Israel) becomes a pretext for a parade of extraordinary characters.

Da Sweet Blood of Jesus Poster

Da Sweet Blood of Jesus

Review by Matt Zoller Seitz

Spike Lee's remake of the 1970s vampire romance "Ganja and Hess" is one of the director's strangest and most obsessive movies, but it casts a perverse spell.
