Ghostbusters

Review by Susan Wloszczyna

I would have preferred that they simply had shut their naysayers down by producing a better movie.

The Infiltrator Poster

The Infiltrator

Review by Peter Sobczynski

Though this true story is fraught with intense peril beneath the surface, the film never quite demonstrates a similar degree of danger.

Café Society Poster

Café Society

Review by Glenn Kenny

It's the filmmaking around the writing that casts a particular spell. Particularly near the end, as Allen adds up the moral failings and squelched desires and doused dreams of all his characters.

Phantom Boy Poster

Phantom Boy

Review by Sheila O'Malley

This gorgeously animated film is sometimes smothered by the obligations of plot, but it's still original, extremely funny and sometimes very moving.

Outlaws and Angels Poster

Outlaws and Angels

How He Fell in Love Poster

How He Fell in Love

Review by Angelica Jade Bastien

Despite how much these characters go on and on about their lives and loves, the film itself has nothing to say.

Lucha Mexico Poster

Lucha Mexico

Review by Matt Fagerholm

It's difficult to get much enjoyment out of the theatrical machismo and unsettling masochism on display in this Mexican wrestling documentary, no matter how staged it may be.

Doc & Darryl Poster

Doc & Darryl

Review by Brian Tallerico

Doc & Darryl is careful not to place blame on anyone but the two men in its title and their addictions.
