Beuys

The 20th century German sculptor and performance artist Joseph Beuys is profiled in this archival documentary.

The Dark Crystal

The Dark Crystal

Back in 1982, Muppet men Jim Henson and Frank Oz created this imaginative fantasy film and populated it with some of their most memorable puppeteering work. Everything takes place in a dark, ruined world ruled over by the evil, birdlike Skeksis. Naturally, a young orphan boy holds the key to stopping the bad guys and saving his planet. Misunderstood at the time, this scarier, more adult film has garnered a significant cult following in the years since. See also: Notable ’80s Jim Henson titles from the Netflix Watch Instantly world by Devin D. O’Leary (09/14/2010). 93 minutes PG. (Opens Sunday 2/25)

Like Me

In this transgressive and timely thriller, a sociopathic millennial (Addison Timlin from "StartUp") sets out on a mindless crime spree that she broadcasts on social media. Along the way she kidnaps an equally disaffected motel clerk (indie director/actor Larry Fessenden) and drags him along for the craziness. First-time filmmaker Robert Mockler directs this neon nightmare like a Michael Mann film on hallucinogens. 80 minutes Unrated. (Opens Monday 2/26)

Mary and the Witch's Flower

This anime feature directed by Hiromasa Yonebayashi (a key animator on such Studio Ghibli classics as Spirited Away, Princess Mononoke and Ponyo) is based on author Mary Stewart's kids' book The Little Broomstick. It tells the story of a little girl name Mary who finds a mysterious flower that grants her the power to become a witch—but only for one night. In Japanese with English subtitles. 102 minutes PG.

This Giant Papier Mache Boulder is Actually Really Heavy

From New Zealand comes this fan-made spoof about three best pals who go to a sci-fi convention and find themselves unexpectedly thrust into an alternate universe filled with low-budget, black-and-white, B-movie cheesiness. The space suits may be tinfoil and the laser guns may be hair dryers painted silver, but the danger is real in this intentionally chintzy, cliché-loving tribute to all things space age and silly. 112 minutes Unrated.

True Grit (1969)

John Wayne stars as drunken, hard-assed US Marshall Rooster Cogburn, who teams up with a Texas Ranger (Glen Campbell) to help a stubborn teenager (Kim Darby) hunt down her parents' murderers in the Wild West. Robert Duvall and Dennis Hopper are in there as well. A late-in-the-game classic of the Western genre. 128 minutes G. (Opens Sunday 2/25)

12 Strong

12 Strong

A team of Special Forces solders (Chris Hemsworth, Michael Shannon and Michael Peña among them) are sent into Afghanistan in the wake of 9/11. Their mission: team up with an Afghani warlord and take down a Taliban stronghold—in less than three weeks. Based on a true, declassified story, this simple war drama (on horseback, no less) captures some thrilling battle scenes. (Director Nicolai Fuglsig was an actual war photographer in Kosovo.) If only the story had more depth and drama to it. FULL REVIEW: Latest war movie proves Hollywood is still soldiering on by Devin D. O’Leary (1/18/2018). 130 minutes R.

The 15:17 to Paris

This dramatic thriller, directed by Clint Eastwood, is based on the true story of three American soldiers who tackled a gun-wielding terrorist on board a train in France. Curiously, Eastwood chose to cast Spencer Stone, Anthony Sadler and Alek Skarlatos, the actual soldiers who did the tackling, in the main roles. Comedians Jenna Fischer, Judy Greer, Thomas Lennon, Tony Hale and Jaleel White (Urkel!) round out the cast—for some reason. 94 minutes PG-13.

Black Panther

Prince T'Challa (Chadwick Boseman) returns to the high-tech African nation of Wakanda to ascend its throne in the wake of his father's death (as seen in Captain America: Civil War). But a usurper to the throne (Michael B. Jordan) and a bad guy with a sonic claw (Andy Serkis) stand in his way. Good thing our hero's got a vibranium-powered suit of armor to fall back on. Ryan Coogler (Fruitvale Station, Creed) directs this magnificently designed, Shakespearian-style superhero epic. FULL REVIEW: Afrofuturist epic takes superheroics in a fresh direction by Devin D.

Call Me By Your Name

Call Me By Your Name

Brit James Ivory (Howards End, Remains of the Day, A Room With a View) adapts the book from André Aciman, and Italian Luca Guadagnino (I Am Love) directs this lush, louche and incredibly languid coming-of-age love story. Teenage Elio (Timothée Chalamet) is an upper-upper middle-class Jewish-American kid lazing around his academic parents' Italian villa for the summer. Twentysomething Oliver (Armie Hammer) is the Adonis-like graduate student who shows up to push papers for Elio's dad. The two loll about the pool, eating ripe fruit and glaring at each other under hooded eyelids. After an hour or so of that, Elio gets around to confessing that he might be gay and might be attracted to Oliver. Lots of walks through the picturesque Italian countryside and a few incredibly academic debates ensue. Also, some sex. A tiny bit anyway. FULL REVIEW: Languid romance withers under the Tuscan sun by Devin D. O’Leary (1/11/2018). 132 minutes R.

Darkest Hour

Gary Oldman transforms himself for this historical biopic about British Prime Minister Winston Churchill. The film—directed by Joe Wright (Atonement, Pride & Prejudice, Anna Karenina)—covers much the same early World War II time period as Christopher Nolan's Dunkirk. Despite its wartime setting, the film is really a testament to the power of words and the ability of great speakers (not to mention great actors) to inspire others. 125 minutes PG-13.

Den of Thieves

This gritty crime saga alternately follows an elite unit of the LA County Sheriff's Dept. and the state's most successful bank robbery crew. While the outlaws plan a seemingly impossible heist on the Federal Reserve Bank, the cops close in on them. It really wants to be a Michael Mann film. But it ain't. Gerard Butler, O'Shea Jackson Jr. and 50 Cent star. 140 minutes R.

Dunkirk

Dunkirk

Writer-director Christopher Nolan (Interstellar, Inception, The Dark Knight trilogy) offers the finest film of his already impressive career with this epic yet intimate war story about the evacuation of Dunkirk, France during World War II. Nolan's ingenious script spins three stories at once, taking us to a week before the evacuation, a day before the evacuation and an hour before the evacuation. First, a terrified soldier tries to get off the bloody beach in France. Second, a fleet of ragtag private boats sets out from England to rescue the stranded army. Finally, a dedicated pilot runs a last-minute mission over the English Channel. As the time-fractured stories progress, they crash, successively, into one another. The result is a visceral, nerve-shredding and ultimately stirring portrait of the fear, chaos and heroism that surrounds war. FULL REVIEW: Christopher Nolan goes to war in a heart-pounding, historical drama about victory in the jaws of defeat by Devin D. O’Leary (7/20/2017). 106 minutes PG-13.

Early Man

From Aardman Animation (makers of Wallace & Gromit) comes this stop-motion-animated tale set at the dawn of man. In it an atypical prehistoric teen named Dug (Eddie Redmayne) unites his primitive caveman tribe in order to fight off the threat of an evil, Bronze Age king (Tom Hiddleston). Weirdly, it all leads to a winner-take-all soccer match. But the daffy British charm of Aardman is hard to ignore. 89 minutes PG.

Get Out

Get Out

Jordan Peele (of "Key and Peele" fame) writes and directs his first feature, a timely and rather subversive horror-comedy twist on The Stepford Wives. A young African-American man named Chris (Daniel Kaluuya, Sicario) visits his new Caucasian girlfriend's liberal parents (Bradley Whitford and Catherine Keener) in their upscale country estate. The family and their lily-white neighbors seem weirdly, condescendingly friendly. Is Chris being paranoid or is there something strange going on? Peele skillfully combines twisty thrills with savvy satire for a satisfying, action-packed genre mash-up.

The Great Buddha+

Writer-director Huang Hsin-Yao's ambling, pitch black comedy follows a couple of luckless losers named Belly Button ("Bamboo" Chen) and Pickle (Cres Chuang). Belly Button is an aimless trash collector and Pickle is a lazy night watchman, friends united in their shared failure and stupidity. Their only joy is gawking at the footage of couples in love hotels captured on the dashcam video of Pickle's boss' car. Unfortunately, they soon witness Pickle's boss (a local politician) doing something very bad. The resulting action is something like Alfred Hitchcock directing Beckett. Huang himself narrates the film with maximum irony and shoots the whole thing in seedy black-and-white. In Taiwanese with English subtitles. 104 minutes Unrated.

The Greatest Showman

Hugh Jackman, Michelle Williams, Zac Efron and Zendaya (Disney Channel fans, rejoice) star in this musical biopic about pioneering circus entrepreneur P.T. Barnum. Oddly enough, this one's not based on a stage musical, but features an original script by Jenny Bicks ("Men in Trees") and Joe Condon (Chicago). 105 minutes PG.

Have a Nice Day

Have a Nice Day

Underground Chinese animator Liu Jian contributes this arty cross between Quentin Tarantino and Adult Swim. In an industrial wasteland in southern China, a broke taxi driver steals a million yuan (about $150,000) from a local crime lord. He immediately loses the cash, but is pursued by a series of colorful characters, all looking to get their hands on the loot. The film's languid, deadpan comic pace is closer in tone to the ensemble cast films of Jim Jarmusch (Down By Law, Mystery Train), but there's a lot of cutting commentary about China's greed-driven economic climate. Liu's fastidious, ligne claire animation style imparts a gorgeously grubby reality to it all. In Mandarin with English subtitles. FULL REVIEW: Handcrafted crime film looks up at China from the animated gutter by Devin D. O’Leary (2/15/2018). 77 minutes Unrated.

Hostiles

In 1892—as the American West and the "Indian Wars" are dying off—a legendary Army captain (Christian Bale) agrees to escort a Cheyenne chief (Wes Studi) and his family through dangerous territory in this mournful, hard-hitting historical Western from writer-director Scott Cooper (Crazy Heart). As the hard journey wears on, the troupe adds a string of disparate new members, raising the danger and tension level. This dark, thoughtful Western has more than a few tonal echoes of Clint Eastwood's era-ending Unforgiven. 134 minutes R.

Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle

Only grown-up hipster nerds play board games now, so this belated sequel to 1995's Jumanji finds a bunch of teens discovering an ancient, mystical video game version of Jumanji. Naturally, they try it out and get transported inside the game itself. The joke this time around is that they end up in the "bodies" of some stereotypical video game avatars (played by Dwayne Johnson, Kevin Hart, Jack Black and Karen Gillan) and must use their three allotted lives to escape. 119 minutes PG-13.

Maze Runner: The Death Cure

The YA-literature-based Maze Runner films (2014's The Maze Runner, 2015's The Scorch Trials and this trilogy-ender) aren't exactly the most original in the "teenagers battle a fascist future government" genre. But they do have a zippy, action-packed vibe that teens and tweens seem to enjoy. Here, Thomas (Dylan O'Brien) and his pals (all of whom are immune to the "Flare virus" wiping out mankind) fight their way through the zombie-filled wasteland to the mythical "Last City." 142 minutes PG-13.

Peter Rabbit

If there's one thing Beatrix Potter's beloved children's books are known for it's nonstop, Home Alone-style slapstick violence. Or at least that's what the makers of this live-action/CGI adaptation seem to think. Peter Rabbit is now an edgy, bad-boy bunny (voiced by James Corden) who must battle Farmer McGregor's young nephew (Domhnall Gleeson) after his age-old nemesis drops dead from a heart attack. (No, really.) Hijinks, of course, ensue. Paddington 2 is much better. 93 minutes PG.

It's a pressure cooker of a literary thriller about hard journalism and value of the Fourth Estate in a democratic society that still imagines itself a Capra-esque game changer. 115 minutes PG-13.

The Shape of Water

The Shape of Water

Mexican horror auteur Guillermo del Toro (Cronos, The Devil's Backbone, Hellboy, Pan's Labyrinth) co-writes and directs this loving update of postwar monster movies. Sally Hawkins (Happy-Go-Lucky) stars as a mute cleaning woman working in a top-secret government lab, circa 1962. There, she meets a similarly voiceless amphibian man (played by famed man-in-a-rubber-suit actor Doug Jones). She befriends him, tries to free him and eventually falls in love with him. This adult-oriented, mid-century modern fairy tale about love and xenophobia is gorgeous, timely and filled with humid sexuality.

Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri

Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri

Martin McDonagh (who gave us the fine In Bruges) writes and directs this brilliant, bitter crime dramedy. Frances McDormand guarantees herself an Oscar nomination as Mildred, a permanently angry divorcée whose teenage daughter was raped and murdered. With no progress on the case in the last seven months, mom erects three billboards castigating the popular local police chief (Woody Harrelson) for his inaction. This sets off a chain of ugly repercussions in their tiny community. There are bursts of fine character-based humor (particularly from Sam Rockwell as a dimwitted police officer), but the overarching tone is one of ordinary, well-meaning people trying to do the right thing but doing the exact wrong thing. FULL REVIEW: Crime doesn’t pay and neither does justice in pitch perfect comedy-drama by Devin D. O’Leary (11/30/2017). 115 minutes R.

Insidious: The Last Key

It's a general rule of thumb: Beware any horror movie with the words "Last" or "Final" in the title. They're probably lying. In any case, here's the fourth film in the ghostly Insidious franchise. Chronologically speaking, this one takes place after Insidious 3, but before Insidious and Insidious 2. It concentrates on demonologist Elise Rainier (cult actress Lin Shaye) as she goes to New Mexico to investigate the haunted house she grew up in. 103 minutes PG-13.

Justice League

It's another incremental improvement in the DC/Warner Bros. brand, but it's punishingly frenetic, the CGI is on overload and everybody looks like an overdesigned basketball shoe. (This last one is particularly annoying in the wake of Thor: Raganrok, which embraced the hell out of legendary artist Jack Kirby's visual style. Justice League borrows a lot of Kirby characters and storylines, but none of his trademark look.) 121 minutes PG-13.
