Run All Night

Review by Brian Tallerico

Action star Liam Neeson and director Jaume Collet-Serra have crafted their most satisfying work to date by sticking to a tried-and-true crime movie template, and allowing a talented cast and tight production values to be the only high concept they…

It Follows Poster

It Follows

Review by Simon Abrams

It Follows both prolongs and heightens the potency of high school-age fears until they appear to be ancient existential terrors.

Cinderella Poster

Cinderella

Review by Susan Wloszczyna

Whether it's Dante Ferretti's sumptuous production designs in refreshing spring-like hues or Sandy Powell's eye-popping if anachronistic costumes, Cinderella offers an array of lavishly frosted eye pastry at every turn.

Going Clear: Scientology and the Prison of Belief Poster

Going Clear: Scientology and the Prison of Belief

Review by Brian Tallerico

That Gibney doesn't quite get all the answers to his questions isn't as material as it might be for other films. He's tackling them as no one else could.

Seymour: An Introduction Poster

Seymour: An Introduction

Review by Glenn Kenny

The movie kind of flits along pleasantly and informatively enough without ever lifting off until the last fifteen minutes or so.

Champs Poster

Champs

Review by Odie Henderson

Champs is a documentary that wants to say something sociological about the sweet science of boxing. It's like a thesis whose next draft would be destined for greatness.

The Cobbler Poster

The Cobbler

Review by Brian Tallerico

If one subscribes to the theory that you can learn as much from a bad movie as from a good one, this one's a master class in what not to do.

Cymbeline Poster

Cymbeline

Review by Peter Sobczynski

This is not one of the Bard's more frequently revived efforts and after watching Michael Almereyda's modern-day take on it, I can understand why.

It's wretched.

The Wrecking Crew Poster

The Wrecking Crew

Review by Christy Lemire

The Wrecking Crew is mostly about uplift, however—almost monotonously so.

The Lovers Poster

The Lovers

Review by Glenn Kenny

Not to get too inside-baseball, but sometimes there's a very good reason that certain movies get stealthy on-demand releases during what industry members frequently refer to as "dumping season."

3 Hearts Poster

3 Hearts

Review by Godfrey Cheshire

A curious, ultimately unsatisfying romantic comedy about two sisters in love with the same man.

Treading Water Poster

Treading Water

Review by Sheila O'Malley

The movie doesn't quite hold together at times, and some of the darker elements (like what it feels like to be shamed and shunned at every moment of your life) are soft-pedaled. But it has a strange charm nonetheless.
