Doctor Strange Poster

Doctor Strange

I Am the Pretty Thing That Lives in the House Poster

I Am the Pretty Thing That Lives in the House

Review by Brian Tallerico

An atmospheric take on the haunted house flick that works more with dread and the looming specter of death than the traditional tropes that often define the genre.

Hacksaw Ridge Poster

Hacksaw Ridge

Review by Matt Zoller Seitz

A film extolling the virtues of pacifism that seems hopelessly addicted to violence.

Loving

Review by Brian Tallerico

Trolls Poster

Trolls

Review by Susan Wloszczyna

Youngsters and more than a few adults probably won't care that this visual simulation of mindlessly munching an entire bowl full of Skittles and Starbursts in one sitting is basically hollow inside.

The Ivory Game Poster

The Ivory Game

Review by Christy Lemire

A documentary that plays with the gripping pacing and glossy production values of a suspenseful, international thriller.

Dog Eat Dog Poster

Dog Eat Dog

Review by Simon Abrams

Dog Eat Dog may be successfully alienating, but that doesn't mean it's entertaining, thoughtful or even successfully provocative.

Peter and the Farm Poster

Peter and the Farm

Review by Glenn Kenny

A very unusual and rare kind of movie: one that is good in spite of itself.

Off the Rails Poster

Off the Rails

My Dead Boyfriend Poster

My Dead Boyfriend

Review by Christy Lemire

A mixture of misplaced gallows humor, wildly over-the-top caricatures and a gimmicky use of animation.

Rainbow Time Poster

Rainbow Time

Review by Nick Allen

Trash Fire Poster

Trash Fire

Review by Brian Tallerico

It's kind of like "Meet the Parents" crossed with "Psycho" and it's a dark, nasty piece of work in most of the ways it should be.

Sacro GRA Poster

Sacro GRA
