Jackie Poster

Jackie

Review by Matt Zoller Seitz

There are two movies in "Jackie." One of these movies is just OK. The other is exceptional. The first one keeps undermining the second.

One More Time with Feeling Poster

One More Time with Feeling

Review by Simon Abrams

Nothing can give shape or closure to Cave—and that's OK. Watching him continue his ongoing search for existential answers is comfort enough.

Old Stone Poster

Old Stone

Review by Glenn Kenny

Writer/director Johnny Ma handles the conundrums with brisk assurance, shooting the drama with a documentary realism that he punctuates with enigmatic views of forests undulating in the wind.

Enlighten Us: The Rise and Fall of James Arthur Ray Poster

Enlighten Us: The Rise and Fall of James Arthur Ray

Review by Brian Tallerico

It's the complexity of this situation that makes for fascinating TV, along with Carchman's respect for all the players and a refusal to turn Enlighten Us into an answer movie.

Incarnate Poster

Incarnate

Review by Peter Sobczynski

Dunderheaded demonic possession saga Incarnate seems designed to defeat even the most meager expectations one might have towards a cheapo Exorcist knockoff.

Two Trains Runnin' Poster

Two Trains Runnin'

Review by Odie Henderson

A powerful meditation on the origins of an African-American musical genre and the painful reasons for its existence.

Man Down Poster

Man Down

Review by Brian Tallerico

Man Down is a bad film, but it's made even worse by the taste it will leave in your mouth regarding the silliness of its handling of a very serious issue.

SiREN Poster

SiREN

Review by Brian Tallerico

The centerpiece of SiREN needs to be a descent into Hell that the filmmakers here seem incapable of really taking, resulting in a film that's totally strange in concept but rather straightforward in execution.

Sky on Fire Poster

Sky on Fire

Review by Simon Abrams

The worst kind of bad action movie: the kind that half-assedly purports to be uplifting, but is actually only convincing when it's about explosions, car chases, and amorally spectacular violence.

Pet Poster

Pet

Review by Glenn Kenny

The rank, idiotic implausibilities continue to mount, including Seth's transformation from a wholly recessive personality into a kind of master of psychological manipulations.

Seasons Poster

Seasons

Review by Matt Fagerholm

As awe-inspiring as this footage is, it's every bit as amazing to envision how the filmmakers had to prepare for framing these moments with impeccable precision.

Best and Most Beautiful Things Poster

Best and Most Beautiful Things

Review by Nick Allen

A documentary with a subject that it achingly wants to share, but has little idea how to best talk about them.

Bobby Sands: 66 Days Poster

Bobby Sands: 66 Days

Review by Mark Dujsik

With this documentary, director Brendan Byrne doesn't try to find the man behind the iconic figure, so much as he attempts to uncover the reasons Sands became an icon.
