In Transit Albert Maysles's final documentary follows the lives of passengers on the Empire Builder, the Amtrak train that travels from Chicago to the West Coast.

Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales Movie Review

The latest - and with any luck last - movie in the "Pirates of the Caribbean" series is a noisy assault on the senses. We hope the foley crew made out like bandits on this one.

Baywatch Movie Review

I had always heard that the government didn't go after the banks after the 2008 crash. Turns out that they went after a tiny bank in NYC's Chinatown. This Steve James documentary examines the absurdity of it.

Afterimage Movie Review

Polish director Andrzej Witold Wajda's final film is a very powerful look at how a government can destroy opposition opinion. It's especially timely now.

Stefan Zweig: Farewell to Europe Movie Review
