The 100-Year-Old Man Who Climbed Out the Window and Disappeared

Review by Glenn Kenny

This movie, as it happens, is a comedy, but it's a frequently grisly one, and one that makes rollicking fun of a lot of dark Swedish preoccupations.

Maggie

Review by Odie Henderson

Schwarzenegger gives his all, but the filmmakers let him down. Oh, Maggie, they couldn't have tried anymore.

The Seven Five Poster

The Seven Five

Review by Godfrey Cheshire

Both wrenching and enlightening, The Seven Five avoids sensationalism to provide a nuanced, thoughtful account of material that's at once sordid and instructive.

The D Train

Review by Glenn Kenny

Playing It Cool Poster

Playing It Cool

Review by Brian Tallerico

Films about writers are tough enough. Films about writers who think they're the smartest person in the room and too cool for the love story in which they're essentially starring are even more ill-advised.

Saint Laurent Poster

Saint Laurent

Review by Susan Wloszczyna

The movie is, at times, quite addictive—much like Opium, the controversial name of Saint Laurent's famous scent. As a diversion, it isn't exactly good for you but it does provide entertainment.

The Ocean of Helena Lee Poster

The Ocean of Helena Lee

Review by Peter Sobczynski

Bravetown Poster

Bravetown

Review by Godfrey Cheshire

A film for teenagers, especially those with a taste for teen-movie clich├ęs put across with plush production values and a complement of high-energy dance numbers. Older audiences are likely to find the film less amusing than risible.
