Rings Poster

Rings

Review by Peter Sobczynski

More wearying than frightening, Rings is a total non-starter.

The Space Between Us Poster

The Space Between Us

Review by Christy Lemire

Butterfield and Robertson (who's about 10 years too old to be playing a high-school student at this point) don't exactly get sparkling dialogue with which to convince us of their burgeoning love.

Mr. Gaga Poster

Mr. Gaga

Review by Sheila O'Malley

A superb dance documentary in its almost single-minded focus on process.

The Comedian

Review by Glenn Kenny

As for De Niro's work here, it is quite peculiar.

Journey to the West: The Demons Strike Back Poster

Journey to the West: The Demons Strike Back

Review by Scout Tafoya

Hark rightly sees nothing as an obstacle to his creativity, and the film feels appropriately monumental and boundless.

Trumped: Inside the Greatest Political Upset of All Time Poster

Trumped: Inside the Greatest Political Upset of All Time

Review by Brian Tallerico

We don't fully comprehend what happened in the Election Year of 2016 quite yet. There will be a great documentary about it eventually. This will do until then.

Don't Knock Twice Poster

Don't Knock Twice

Review by Simon Abrams

There's an interesting movie here, buried underneath a mountain of weak jump-scares and illogical twists.

Wheeler Poster

Wheeler

Review by Susan Wloszczyna

This attempt at pseudo cinema verite basically rests on Dorff's slim, plaid-shirted shoulders—and dang if he doesn't make this simple yet sincere saga hit more than a few high notes.

This Is Everything: Gigi Gorgeous Poster

This Is Everything: Gigi Gorgeous

Youth in Oregon

Review by Glenn Kenny

Is this all well-acted? It certainly is, especially by Langella.

American Violence Poster

American Violence

Review by Brian Tallerico

American Violence seems defiantly unconcerned with actually addressing the actual issues at play, delivering a generic crime thriller instead. And a bad one at that.

Dark Night Poster

Dark Night

Review by Matt Zoller Seitz

In theory, this is a look at American gun culture that takes the form of an experimental film, but it doesn't add up to much.

The Lure Poster

The Lure

Review by Simon Abrams

Watching The Lure is a bit like having manic depression: the thrilling high points are just as relentless as the crushing low-tide ebbs.
