It’s not truly a “heist” until disguises are involved.

American Animals

British documentary filmmaker Bart Layton (The Impostor) blends nonfiction with scripted material for this hybrid crime drama. It's based on the true story of several college kids in Kentucky who came up with the brilliantly dumb idea of stealing a $12 million Audubon book from their college library back in 2004. Evan Peters ("American Horror Story") and Barry Keoghan (Dunkirk) are the ringleaders, who end up cribbing most of their ideas from heist movies they've rented at Blockbuster. Most interestingly, Layton keeps interrupting the narrative for on-camera interviews with the actual people this story is about. Furthering the perception-vs.-reality theme is the fact that many of these interviews contradict one another, forcing the filmmakers to rewind and "remake" certain scenes. FULL REVIEW: Genre-bending crime thriller incorporates documentary techniques in its true(?)-life narrative by Devin D. O’Leary (6/21/2018). 116 minutes R. (Opens Friday 6/22)

Ava

Director Sadaf Foroughi bases this film on her own adolescent experiences coming of age to well-to-do parents in modern-day Tehran. Our fictionalized Ava (Mahour Jabbari) is a bright and focused teenager—until her mistrustful and overprotective mother grows increasingly concerned about her daughter's sexual activity, forcing the girl to rebel against her family's religious strictures. In Persian with English subtitles. 103 minutes Unrated. (Opens Friday 6/22)

Jennifer Grey and Patrick Swayze get (not very) dirty in this tune-filled flashback from 1987. 100 minutes PG-13. (Opens Sunday 6/24)

Drilling Mora County

This locally made documentary covers how Mora County, N.M., became the first county in the United States to enact a fracking ban. Interviews with attorneys, activists and elected officials show how the groundbreaking legislation was passed. The film's director, David Luis Leal Cortez, will be on hand for a post-film Q&A featuring some special guest speakers. 54 minutes Unrated. (Opens Saturday 6/23)

Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom

Seems that troubled Isla Nublar now has an additional problem (besides all those man-eating dinosaurs on the loose). Wouldn't you know it: The entire island has been sitting on a dormant volcano this entire time, and it's now exploding. Naturally, a mix of untrustworthy mercenaries and squabbling scientists (plus dinosaur trainer Chris Pratt and operations manager Bryce Dallas Howard) head back to the island to rescue a bunch of the giant lizards before, you know, lava. What could possibly go wrong? Oh, I don't know: The exact same crap that's gone wrong in the last four films? Don't get me wrong. This trope-filled sequel is extremely exciting for the most part. But it lacks the original's sense of wonder and gets increasingly dumb—somehow ending up as a haunted house story, but with dinosaurs instead of ghosts. 128 minutes PG-13. (Opens Thursday 6/21)

The Land Before Time

George Lucas and Steven Spielberg presented this enjoyable 1988 animated cartoon about dinosaurs from former Disney animator Don Bluth (The Secret of NIMH). Believe it or not, this thing spawned 13 sequels! (Last I checked, anyway.) 69 minutes G. (Opens Wednesday 6/27)

Mary Shelley

Elle Fanning (Super 8), Masie Williams ("Game of Thrones") and Bel Powley (The Diary of a Teenage Girl) star in this costumed biopic recounting the love affair between 18-year-old Mary Wollstonecraft Godwin (Fanning) and poet Percy Shelly (Douglas Booth, Jupiter Ascending)—which resulted in her writing a little yarn called Frankenstein. The production looks lush, and filmmaker Haifaa Al-Mansour (Wadja) aims for the appropriate level of feminist ire; but the script is lifeless and disjointed. 120 minutes PG-13. (Opens Friday 6/22)
Guild Cinema

The Misandrists

Canadian underground provocateur Bruce La Bruce (No Skin Off My Ass, The Raspberry Reich, Otto; or Up With Dead People, L.A. Zombie) vacillates between melodrama, camp and hardcore pornography in this typically "for the converted only" piece of self-conscious Eurotrash. Injured and hunted, a male leftist stumbles across a remote "school for wayward girls," which is secretly the stronghold of the all-lesbian Female Liberation Army. Feeling sorry for the fellow "criminal," one of the girls takes sympathy on the man and hides him in the basement. Naturally, this runs afoul of the domineering FLA leaders' rules—not to mention her plans to take over the world via lesbian porn. Perfect, if you're in the mood for a radical political screwball comedy with hardcore sex. 91 minutes Unrated. (Opens Tuesday 6/26)
Guild Cinema

Race 3

The Indian action series (weirdly, and very loosely, adapted from the 1999 Patricia Arquette/Dermot Mulroney neo-noir comedy Goodbye Lover) dumps the cast and storyline of its previous installments. This one stars Anil Kapoor (Tezaab, Janbaaz, Virasat) as the head of an Indian Mafia empire that's being fought over by his ruthless kids. In Hindi with English subtitles. 160 minutes Unrated. (Opens Thursday 6/21)

Revolting Rhymes

This collection of warped animated fairy tales (done in a sort of film noir style) is based on the book written by Roald Dahl and illustrated by Quentin Blake. Dominic West, Rob Brydon and Rose Leslie provide some of the voices. It's directed by the makers of The Gruffalo and was nominated for an Academy Award. 60 minutes PG. (Opens Tuesday 6/26)

Survivor's Guide to Prison

Danny Trejo, Susan Sarandon, Patricia Arquette, Danny Glover, Cynthia Nixon, Ice-T, Quincy Jones, Busta Rhymes, Russell Simmons and Macklemore are just some of the famous talking heads in this documentary about justice and prison reform. Ostensibly a rule book for dealing with corrupt, violent and/or racist cops, the film mostly reiterates filmmaker Matthew Cooke's thesis that the American justice system is broken. It makes some important points, but the aggro visual style really makes it look like an MTV promo video. There will be a Q&A after the screening featuring several local panelists. 102 minutes Unrated. (Opens Sunday 6/24)

West Side Story

Natalie Wood, Richard Beymer, Russ Tamblyn and Rita Moreno are among the singing and dancing cast of this 1961 Academy Award-winner (10 of 'em!). This classic musical take on the time-honored Romeo and Juliet theme takes our star-crossed lovers into gangland New York of the '50s. 152 minutes Unrated. (Opens Sunday 6/24)

Won't You Be My Neighbor?

This lovely and incredibly welcome documentary explores the life, lessons and legacy of iconic children's show host Fred Rogers—whose compassion, earnestness and fundamental "goodness" seem to be in desperately short supply in today's contentious world. Be prepared to get hit with a wave of nostalgia and emotion. It's OK to cry, even. Mr. Rogers said so. Morgan Neville (an Oscar winner for 20 Feet From Stardom) directs. 94 minutes PG-13.

Adrift

Shailene Woodley (the Divergent movies) and Sam Claflin (the Hunger Games movies) star in this "true" survival tale about a young couple who fall in love and decide to go on the adventure of a lifetime sailing across the Pacific Ocean. They quickly drift into "one of the most catastrophic hurricanes in recorded history" and struggle, wounded and without resources, to make their way to Hawaii. 120 minutes PG-13.

Avengers: Infinity War

Marvel Studios folds together characters from just about every comic book franchise it's got for one giant-sized, free-for-all brawl. When power-mad alien conquerer Thanos (Josh Brolin) tries to unite the six Infinity Gems, The Avengers, Black Panther, Doctor Strange, Spider-Man and the Guardians of the Galaxy must join forces to stop him from using them to wipe out half the life in the universe. Anything you can say about this counts as a spoiler. It's certainly not the best entry point for the Marvel Cinematic, relying on 10 years of backstory and setup. But it is a surprising, satisfying and shockingly dark capper to this second phase of the MCU. 149 minutes PG-13.

Here, an A-list group of seniors (Diane Keaton, Jane Fonda, Candice Bergen, Mary Steenburgen) reads 50 Shades of Grey at its monthly book club meeting, inspiring several comic sexual shenanigans. Relax, ladies, it's a terrible, terrible book. PG-13.

Deadpool 2

Deadpool 2

Foul-mouthed (and frequently ultraviolent) vigilante Deadpool (Ryan Reynolds) returns for another R-rated outing. This time around, stung by tragedy, our anti-hero decides he needs a family. He fast-tracks it by "adopting" a hot-headed young mutant kid (Julian Dennison from Hunt for the Wilderpeople), who is being hunted down by a pissed-off cyborg from the future (Josh Brolin). The plot is much less important than the wacky asides and rude jokes, which are amped up even from the 2016 original. FULL REVIEW: The Merc With a Mouth comes again by Devin D. O’Leary (5/17/2018). 119 minutes R.

First Reformed

Paul Schrader (Taxi Driver, Hardcore) writes and directs this ham-handed melodrama-cum-thriller which remixes the "angry white man" vibe of his previous films to odd effect. Ethan Hawke is a conflicted, drunken priest at a historic church in upstate New York. More of a guide to tourists than a spiritual advisor to his shrinking congregation, he jumps at the chance to help a young parishioner (Amanda Seyfried, Mamma Mia!) with a troubled husband. Turns out the hubby's a gung-ho environmental activist who wants very much to blow something up. Weirdly, our priest listens to all the internet-derived global warming statistics and decides maybe he should blow something up. Conveniently, the person paying for his church's upcoming 200th anniversary celebration owns one of the most polluting companies in America. Also, the priest is dying of cancer. Subtle this ain't. 113 minutes R.

Gotti

John Travolta gobs on the makeup to play infamous mob boss John Gotti in this long-delayed, made-for-TV-movie-esque biopic for director Kevin Connolly (better known as Eric on "Entourage"). Go watch The Godfather for the fifteeth time instead. 105 minutes R.

Hereditary

An overly emotional wife, mother and artist (Toni Collette, The Sixth Sense) dreams of getting out from under the thumb of her unstable, domineering mother. But when mom finally dies, our protagonist finds her family (distracted teenage son, seemingly autistic daughter and confused hubby Gabriel Bryne) plagued by a string of horrific tragedies. Haunted by the ghosts of Sirk, Bergman, Tarkovsky, Greenaway and Lynch, first-time filmmaker Ari Aster displays a strong visual eye and a flair for the shocking in this art house thriller—which slowly transmogrifies from dark domestic drama to pitch-black, cosmic horror. 127 minutes R.

Yup, those are mountains, all right.

Mountain

Halfway between a high-altitude sports documentary and a Koyaanisqatsi-style image-and-music meditation, this arty film is directed by Australian filmmaker Jennifer Peedom and narrated by Willem Dafoe. Helicopter shots of towering mountain peaks and slow-motion footage of snowdrifts cascading off vertiginous peaks are punctuated by the Australian Symphony Orchestra's loudest timpanis and Dafoe's pseudo-poetic voiceover. ("The mountains we climb are not just make of rock and ice … but dreams and desires.") Occasionally we see some white guys scaling these mountaintops. The footage (shot by noted mountaineer and photographer Renan Ozturk) is frequently arresting. But the lack of information and purpose makes this outdoor doc rather vague. FULL REVIEW: This mountain is certainly high, but not very deep by Devin D. O’Leary (6/14/2018). 74 minutes PG.

Ocean's 8

In this "side-quel" to the previous Ocean's trilogy, Danny Ocean's sister (Sandra Bullock) gets out of jail and immediately plots an impossibly complex heist to steal a fortune in diamonds from the Met Gala. Naturally, this involves recruiting a team of (female) thieves, cons and scam artists to pull off. Kate Blanchett, Anne Hathaway, Mindy Kaling, Sarah Paulson, Helena Bonham Carter, Dakota Fanning and Rihanna are among the star-studded cast. 110 minutes PG-13.

Overboard

Anna Faris ("Mom") and Spanglish comedy star Eugenio Derbez (Instructions Not Included, How to Be a Latin Lover) star in this gender-flipped remake of the 1987 Goldie Hawn/Kurt Russell rom-com. This time around she's the poor, mistreated contractor and he's the spoiled rich yacht owner suffering from amnesia. That counts as clever in today's Hollywood. 112 minutes PG-13.

A Quiet Place

Normally comedic actor John Krasinski ("The Office") directs this emotional, eerily minimalist horror thriller (and stars in it alongside wife Emily Blunt). After the Earth is invaded and nearly decimated by creatures that hunt by sound, a tight-knit family is forced to live on the run (and in total silence). When mom gets pregnant, the terrified parents' (rather justified) overprotectiveness is tested to the limit. 90 minutes PG-13.

RBG

Much-admired Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg gets the biopic treatment with this look into her life and work. Not just a tribute to the energetic life of one tough, smart, even-tempered lady, the documentary also stands as a monument to her legacy of precedent-setting legal writing. 98 minutes PG.

Brady Jandreau in The Rider

The Rider

On the Pine Ridge Reservation in South Dakota, a young horse trainer and wannabe rodeo star suffers a life-threatening, career-ending brain injury. And yet, economic realities and the macho attitude of friends pressure him to get back in the saddle (literally and figuratively). This intimate, brutally honest drama is remarkable for the painful empathy it displays for its characters—and for the fact that star Brady Jandreau is a non-actor playing a role that is at least 60 percent inspired by his own true-life brush with death. See also: An interview with the writer-director and the star of The Rider by Devin D. O’Leary (5/10/2018). 104 minutes R.

The Seagull

Elisabeth Moss, Saoirse Ronan and Annette Bening headline this drama based on the Chekhov play. An aging actress (Bening) pays a visit to her brother's lakeside estate. She brings with her a successful and charismatic novelist (Corey Stoll from Ant-Man). He proceeds to seduce and reject an innocent neighbor girl (Ronan), much to the delight of his bitter host. Don't worry, there are plenty of other messy love affairs to go around. Although the script pares away much of Chekhov's weighty dialogue for modern audiences, the whole thing remains a stodgy and stagebound affair. 98 minutes

Solo: A Star Wars Story

Solo: A Star Wars Story

Here we are treated to the first solo (so to speak) origin story for a Star Wars character. Alden Ehrenreich (Stoker) stars as the cocky young flyboy Han Solo, meeting his future copilot Chewbacca and acquiring the Millennium Falcon from suave gambler Lando Calrissian (a perfectly cast Donald Glover). This tries to explain a lot of things that didn't really need explaining and can't possibly be all things to all fans—nevertheless, its an entertaining romp full of energy and action.

SuperFly

Evidently we're down to the "S"es on remakes. Here, the 1972 blaxploitation classic from Gordon Parks Jr. gets a modern-day update. (We got Shaft back in 2000.) Brought to life by noted hip hop music video guru "Director X," this one transfers the story of slick cocaine dealer Youngblood Priest (singer/dancer/actor Travis Jackson) from Harlem to Atlanta. Our antihero wants to make one last score before retiring to Montenegro with his two girlfriends—but we all know how that sort of thing works out. Go watch Scarface for the fifteenth time instead. 116 minutes R.

When a corporate mega-park opens nearby, jeopardizing his dream, our protagonist must rely on his estranged daughter and a bunch of misfit friends to save the day. No stranger to nut shots, Knoxville provided all his own stunts for this punishing slapstick comedy. 84 minutes R.

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.

Blockers

Three teenage girls make a pact to lose their virginity on prom night in what is essentially a reworking of every teen sex comedy since Porky's. However, by concentrating on the panicked parents (Leslie Mann, John Cena, Ike Barinholtz) scouring the town to prevent their daughters' deflowering, the film finds a fresh outlet for the raunchy outlandishness. There's all the usual sex, drugs and booze on display, but it's aimed sharply at the hypocritical (and mostly misplaced) Puritanism of the adults in the room. 102 minutes R.

I Can Only Imagine

This drama relates the "inspiring and unknown true story" behind the beloved, chart-topping song that I've totally never heard of. If you're a big listener of Christian rock radio, maybe you have. The "unknown" story behind the 1999 song is that it was written by the band MercyMe's lead vocalist, Bart Millard, after his father died. First time actor J. Michael Finley stars as Bart. Dennis Quaid stars as his dad. Who dies. The film is directed by Andrew and Jon Erwin, who gave us previous Jesus-based flicks October Baby, Woodlawn and Moms' Night Out. 110 minutes PG.

Ernest Cline's retro-minded sci-fi novel comes to life with no less than Steven Spielberg in the director's chair. In near future America, people spend most of their time living in the virtual reality world of The Oasis. But when the reclusive creator of the game dies, he leaves behind a series of clues. The first player to solve them will gain control of The Oasis. Now it's up to one impoverished teen (Tye Sheradan) and his pals to crack it. This computer-generated Willy Wonka riff was made by nerdy suburban white kids obsessed with '80s films, music and video games for nerdy suburban white kids obsessed with '80s films, music and video games. As such, I'm definitely catching what they're pitching. But even I'm forced to admit this is less a well-reasoned story and more a checklist of groovy pop culture references. 140 minutes PG-13.
