The Accountant Poster

The Accountant

Review by Glenn Kenny

It goes very far south, with two plot reveals that are among the most ludicrous that I've experienced in quite some time.

Justin Timberlake + The Tennessee Kids Poster

Justin Timberlake + The Tennessee Kids

Review by Brian Tallerico

A piece of stellar filmmaking, a class in how to shoot a concert film in a way that doesn't just chronicle what happened on that chilly Las Vegas night but that matches its subject's personality.

Shin Godzilla

Review by Simon Abrams

A modern monster movie that isn't just the same ol', same 'ol.

Certain Women Poster

Certain Women

Review by Brian Tallerico

These are normal people, like you and me, and it's that relatability that makes Reichardt's work here so powerful.

Mascots Poster

Mascots

Review by Susan Wloszczyna

As hard as it is to admit, Guest's once-incisive satirical bite has grown dull in its familiarity. He doesn't seem to be having as much fun here and neither are we.

Aquarius Poster

Aquarius

Review by Christy Lemire

Aquarius is on the long side at nearly two and a half hours, and it may feel like it drags a bit in the middle, but it's got so many individual moments of grace that it rewards you for sticking…

Christine Poster

Christine

Review by Sheila O'Malley

There are questions of exploitation that nag throughout, as well as a queasy feeling that we the audience are participating in exploiting this troubled woman all over again.

Desierto Poster

Desierto

Review by Peter Sobczynski

What should have been a solid B-movie thriller with a premise torn from today's headlines is instead as arid and desolate as the land between the United States and Mexico in which it is set.

Miss Hokusai Poster

Miss Hokusai

Review by Brian Tallerico

It feels much longer than its 90 minutes, and I left it feeling like I didn't really learn much about its title character or her father.

Coming Through The Rye Poster

Coming Through The Rye

Review by Godfrey Cheshire

A warm-spirited romantic drama that benefits from James Sadwith's confident writing and direction, especially the appealing performances he gets from his two young leads.

Little Sister Poster

Little Sister

Review by Sheila O'Malley

A quiet and gentle film, emotional but not manipulatively sentimental, sad but not nihilistic, Marilyn Manson epigram and Goth-font chapter markers notwithstanding.

Voyage of Time: The IMAX Experience Poster

Voyage of Time: The IMAX Experience

Review by Simon Abrams

Malick's idiosyncratic marriage of spiritual speculation and nature photography is frequently amazing.
