Alice Through the Looking Glass Poster

Alice Through the Looking Glass

Review by Matt Zoller Seitz

There is no magic, no wonder, just junk rehashed from a movie that was itself a rehash of Lewis Carroll, tricked out with physically unpersuasive characters and landscapes and "action scenes."

X-Men: Apocalypse

Review by Angelica Jade Bastien

X-Men: Apocalypse is a confused, bloated, mess of a film.

The Ones Below Poster

The Ones Below

Review by Christy Lemire

Takes the giddy, heady days of early motherhood—the frustration and isolation, the exhaustion and confusion—and mines them for creepy, paranoid thrills.

The Dresser Poster

The Dresser

Review by Peter Sobczynski

The Dresser may not live up to the reputation of the earlier film, it is still a reasonably entertaining work that offers the pleasure of seeing two great actors work together for the first time.

Chevalier Poster

Chevalier

Review by Glenn Kenny

Male vanity, a trait so widespread that it's rarely if ever acknowledged, gets a funny albeit ultimately not terribly consequential skewering in this dry comedy from Greece.

The Idol Poster

The Idol

Review by Christy Lemire

Director Hany Abu-Assad's choices make you wonder why the director didn't just go ahead and make a documentary instead.

Jia Zhangke, A Guy from Fenyang Poster

Jia Zhangke, A Guy from Fenyang

Review by Godfrey Cheshire

While Walter Salles' portrait gives a very incomplete account of the man and his art, it pays tribute to a filmmaker who remains among the medium's most fascinating creators.

Unlocking the Cage Poster

Unlocking the Cage

Review by Godfrey Cheshire

As its title suggests, Unlocking the Cage is a kind of advocacy journalism, not an attempt to weigh the cons as well as the pros of whether non-humans should have human-like rights.
