The Dog Poster

The Dog

Review by Matt Zoller Seitz

A great documentary is at least half a triumph of people-watching, and this account of the true story behind "Dog Day Afternoon" is filled with astonishing people.

The Hundred-Foot Journey Poster

The Hundred-Foot Journey

Review by Christy Lemire

This sweetly pleasing combination of ingredients would have been perfectly suitable if the film didn't take a wild and needless detour in the third act. That's when it becomes an even less interesting movie than it already was, in spite…

Into the Storm Poster

Into the Storm

Review by Brian Tallerico

Given our national interest in all things weather-related, "Into the Storm" feels like an inevitability, almost a cinematic obligation to the country's latest obsession, and it's about as creatively inspired as that description makes it out to be.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles

Review by Simon Abrams

"Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles" is an energy-sapping exercise in futility that will leave you begging for less.

What If Poster

What If

Review by Susan Wloszczyna

Everything about the romantic comedy "What If" is cute. Utterly cute. Undeniably cute. Uber–duber cute.

A Master Builder Poster

A Master Builder

Review by Peter Sobczynski

The third cinematic collaboration from theater veterans Andre Gregory and Wallace Shawn isn't as successful as the first two but contains performances strong enough to merit a look.

About Alex Poster

About Alex

Review by Brian Tallerico

I was pleasantly surprised by much of "About Alex," a film that features a stronger-than-average ensemble for this subgenre even if it too often succumbs to predictable, traditional turns of Screenwriting 101.

Fifi Howls from Happiness Poster

Fifi Howls from Happiness

Review by Godfrey Cheshire

As if to confirm how crucial timing is to documentaries, the artist gives the filmmaker a last performance that helps make her portrait of him as extraordinary as the man it portrays.

After Poster

After

Review by Glenn Kenny

Its conscientiousness is marred, I think, by a sentimentality that compels director Pieter Gasperz and writer Sabrina Gennerino to stretch a narrative metaphor way farther than could be reasonably tolerated.

Guardians of the Galaxy Poster

Guardians of the Galaxy

Review by Glenn Kenny

In many respects, "Guardians," directed and co-written by indie wit James Gunn, and starring buffed-up former schlub Chris Pratt and Really Big Sci-Fi Blockbuster vet Zoe Saldana (here dyed green as opposed to her "Avatar" blue), is a fun and…

Finding Fela Poster

Finding Fela

Review by Matt Zoller Seitz

Alex Gibney's "Finding Fela," about the legendary African pop star and political activist, feels like the rough draft of a very good movie.
