Kill the Messenger Movie Review

An important story about truth and persistence and our ability to trust the integrity of our political and legal systems.

Dracula Untold Movie Review

This "Untold" origin story is better left that way. It just sucks time.

Gone Girl Movie Review

Director David Fincher's latest fails to match up to his best work. It's more soap opera/movie-of-th- week than fully realized filmmaking.

The Good Lie Movie Review

This complicated story filled with history, literary tropes, and a message about refugee crises is a surprisingly schmaltz-free consciousness raiser.

Pride Movie Review

In 1984, a group of young gays forms an alliance with a most unusual partner. The result is almost breathtaking in its jovial unlikeliness.

The Congress Movie Review

Ari Folman's follow-up to his ground-breaking "Waltz With Bashir" has even higher ambitions this time around but falls short in the execution.

This Is Where I Leave You Movie Review

A dysfunctional family takes pleasure in sadistic fun at the expense of those closest to them. It is intermittently funny, but the drama is contrived and clumsy.

Art and Craft Movie Review

A documentary that chronicles possibly the best forger of art of our time. What makes it special is that he is impossible not to love.

The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby: Them Movie Review

Ned Benson's view of a couple going through troubled times comes in three versions: Him, Her, and Them. I saw Them. Maybe Him and/or Her is/are better.

To Be Takei Movie Review

This biography of George Takei works, despite any real tension. It's a testimonial to the warmth of Mr. Takei and, surprisingly, that's enough.
