Logan Lucky Poster

Logan Lucky

Review by Matt Zoller Seitz

Watching it is like finding money in the pocket of a coat that you haven't worn in years.

The Wound

Review by Peter Sobczynski

A rough and unsparing film.

Patti Cake$ Poster

Patti Cake$

Review by Matt Zoller Seitz

The sense of place and uniformly superb performances make it worth seeing, and maybe ultimately singing along with.

The Hitman's Bodyguard Poster

The Hitman's Bodyguard

Review by Susan Wloszczyna

While no one is going to mistake The Hitman's Bodyguard for high art, it will please those in the mood for late-summer fun.

What Happened to Monday Poster

What Happened to Monday

Review by Brian Tallerico

Wirkola stages a few excellent set pieces and Rapace is fantastic, but the general lack of entertainment value has to be considered disappointing given the potential of the entire piece.

Lemon Poster

Lemon

Review by Sheila O'Malley

Has some legitimately peculiar traits, and moments that flash with true absurdity. But there's a flatness in the end-result. The quirky is utterly predictable.

Marjorie Prime Poster

Marjorie Prime

Review by Godfrey Cheshire

A movie that leaves viewers with so much to ponder.

Crown Heights Poster

Crown Heights

Review by Matt Zoller Seitz

A true story of miscarried justice, under-served by its filmmaking but full of excellent performances.

Shot Caller Poster

Shot Caller

Review by Vikram Murthi

A decent genre entry that often disturbs by what it leaves unsaid rather than what it chooses to underline.

The Adventurers Poster

The Adventurers

Review by Simon Abrams

A sleepy globe-trotting adventure.

Gook Poster

Gook

Review by Glenn Kenny

There's not much to take away from the movie besides its sound and fury.

In This Corner of the World Poster

In This Corner of the World

Review by Brian Tallerico

Even if In This Corner of the World ends on a note that imagination and hope can continue, it would serve our world leaders, two in particular right now, to watch this before allowing the horror of war to repeat…

Dave Made a Maze Poster

Dave Made a Maze

Review by Glenn Kenny

I was wondering who exactly this movie was made for, and how I could avoid them.

The Queen of Spain Poster

The Queen of Spain

Review by Nick Allen

The Queen of Spain can only offer scant entertainment for movie buffs and non-movie buffs alike.
