The Mummy

Review by Glenn Kenny

Perhaps I'm becoming jaded in my old age, but I was more amused than appalled.

It Comes at Night Poster

It Comes at Night

Review by Brian Tallerico

There are no zombies in the streets, boogeymen in the basement or witches in the woods—and yet it is one of the most terrifying films in years.

Megan Leavey Poster

Megan Leavey

Review by Sheila O'Malley

The emotion in Megan Leavey is not forced. It flows, up and down the leash, just like it's supposed to.

Beatriz at Dinner Poster

Beatriz at Dinner

Review by Susan Wloszczyna

Hayek turns Beatriz into her own breed of wonder woman, Lithgow's Strutt is definitely a super villain of sorts and their head-to-head battle is clearly worth seeing even if, in real life, it has only begun.

The Hero Poster

The Hero

Review by Christy Lemire

Night School Poster

Night School

Review by Brian Tallerico

He merely chronicles three unforgettable people, the kind that are imminently easy to root for, and allows us to realize that they're not that different from us or the legions like them trying to better themselves.

Funeral Parade of Roses

Review by Simon Abrams

You may not directly identify with Eddie or his world, but you will walk away from Matsumoto's film with a newfound appreciation of what movies can be.

Family Life Poster

Family Life

Review by Mark Dujsik

For all of the work that the filmmakers do to help us understand Martín's motives for the deception (not to mention Becker, whose performance is quite good), there's an important piece missing.

Camera Obscura Poster

Camera Obscura

Review by Simon Abrams

The movie's psychologically realistic foundation quickly collapses, giving way to a banal stalk-and-slay horror narrative.

The Hunter's Prayer Poster

The Hunter's Prayer

Review by Nell Minow

The Hunter's Prayer is like a Luc Besson film put through a deflavorizing machine to remove any element that could be distinctive, energetic, or fun.
