Keanu Poster

Keanu

Review by Angelica Jade Bastien

Keanu is fun, and even sometimes outright hilarious, but it doesn't live up to the skills of its central performers.

The Man Who Knew Infinity Poster

The Man Who Knew Infinity

Review by Susan Wloszczyna

An account of a remarkable person should strive to be as equally remarkable as its subject, not the timid and tidy boilerplate special of a biopic that The Man Who Knew Infinity too often resembles.

Mother's Day Poster

Mother's Day

Review by Peter Sobczynski

A film so awful that if one were to put up a list of the great movies celebrating motherhood, it would rank considerably lower than the Gus van Sant version of Psycho.

The Family Fang

Review by Glenn Kenny

Christopher Walken almost saves a pretty bad movie. But not quite.

The Wait Poster

The Wait

Review by Susan Wloszczyna

The Wait challenges you to stand in judgment while also acknowledging that there is no right or wrong way to cope with such a painful personal tragedy, even if others might get hurt.

Viva

Review by Glenn Kenny

Neither character talks all that much, but both actors project complex intelligence and consistent emotional acuity.

Special Correspondents Poster

Special Correspondents

Review by Brian Tallerico

Special Correspondents is one of those increasingly depressing affairs, like watching air come out of a balloon.

Papa: Hemingway in Cuba Poster

Papa: Hemingway in Cuba

Review by Matt Fagerholm

A perfunctory assemblage of biographical bullet points in which characters explain their lives rather than live them.

Sacrifice Poster

Sacrifice

Review by Nick Allen

Sacrifice only lacks a Tommy Wiseau or Neil Breen-esque lead performance to contextualize everything as misdirected vanity.

Dough Poster

Dough

Review by Sheila O'Malley

Everyone involved in Dough means well, and criticizing it feels like criticizing a poorly-written personal essay by an earnest middle-schooler.

Viktoria Poster

Viktoria

Review by Glenn Kenny

Viktoria is in many respects the kind of movie that will confirm the prejudices of anybody with a predisposition to dislike "art" films.

Precious Cargo Poster

Precious Cargo

Review by Peter Sobczynski

You will be hard-pressed to remember anything about it even only a few minutes after watching it, which should come as a relief to everyone involved with its production.
