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.

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.
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.
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.
Review by Sheila O'Malley
Things to Come is the detailed tapestry of one woman's life, as she moves through an important transition.
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.
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 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.
It's not a bad film ... it just isn't all there.
Review by Godfrey Cheshire
The Duelist is a welcome indication of the current Russian cinema's commercial ambitions and potential.
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.
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.
The rank, idiotic implausibilities continue to mount, including Seth's transformation from a wholly recessive personality into a kind of master of psychological manipulations.
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.
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.
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.
