Trainwreck Poster

Trainwreck

Review by Christy Lemire

The reversal of traditional on-screen gender roles—combined with Schumer and Hader's easy chemistry—makes Trainwreck feel new and fresh.

Ant-Man

Review by Glenn Kenny

Provides the most pure, uncomplicated fun, and even joy, of any Marvel picture I've seen.

Court

Review by Laya Maheshwari

Indian filmmaker Chaitanya Tamhane's first feature is a masterpiece, one of the best films of the year.

Tangerine Poster

Tangerine

Review by Matt Zoller Seitz

An independent film in every sense, Tangerine is a Christmas-set comedy about transgender prostitutes shot with an iPhone.

Irrational Man

Review by Matt Zoller Seitz

Woody Allen's latest would have to spend another year in the oven before you could call it half-baked.

The Look of Silence Poster

The Look of Silence

Review by Glenn Kenny

The events under consideration in these films are dispiriting reminders that human progress in this area has been meager at best.

Mr. Holmes Poster

Mr. Holmes

Review by Susan Wloszczyna

Actually, a certain placidity seeps into too much of the film, even if McKellen is consistently enjoyable and gets a chance to share a nice moment of interplay when a still-dapper Holmes and Kelmot eventually meet on a park bench.

A Hard Day Poster

A Hard Day

Review by Brian Tallerico

An effective thriller in which sheer propulsion is the artistic driving force.

Lila & Eve Poster

Lila & Eve

Review by Peter Sobczynski

Despite the film being simply awful through and through, the usually excellent Viola Davis (who also served as a co-producer) does her damnedest to make something of her character.

Alléluia Poster

Alléluia

Review by Simon Abrams

Sadly, there's nothing funny, or especially provocative about Alléluia since the film's impressionistic style is so shallow that one can't help but feel like you're watching a technically accomplished vision of love according to an especially angsty goth teenager.

Ardor Poster

Ardor

Review by Glenn Kenny

Gael Garcia Bernal and Alice Braga are certainly not wasted in "Ardor," a visually sumptuous kind of contemporary eco-Western from Argentine director Pablo Fendrik. But what chemical reaction they try to roil never accelerates to a really satisfactory level.

Safelight Poster

Safelight

Review by Brian Tallerico

To write off Safelight as just another generic romantic teen drama about wounded souls who find healing in each other's arms wouldn't do justice to its baffling ineptitude.

Joe Dirt 2: Beautiful Loser Poster

Joe Dirt 2: Beautiful Loser

Review by Brian Tallerico

Joe Dirt 2 is wildly inconsistent, often feeling like it was slapped together quickly before someone changed their mind and put a stop payment on the financing check.
