Dunkirk

Film Review

Dunkirk

Christopher Nolan goes to war in a heart-pounding, historical drama about victory in the jaws of defeat

Dunkirk expresses the panic, fear and sheer chaos of war better than just about any previous film.

The Little Hours

Film Review

The Little Hours

Alison Brie, Aubrey Plaza and Kate Micucci are naughty nuns in oddball literary adaptation

The Little Hours is a send-up of the absurd idea of sin and that human beings can actually give up their sins of the flesh, but Jeff Baena’s attentions are focused on the fact that cursing, drunken, fornicating nuns are funny as hell.

Baby Driver

Film Review

Baby Driver

Edgar Wright takes an eclectic cast on a high-speed joyride with the stereo cranked to 11

Baby Driver isn’t all testosterone-fueled explosions and physics-defying stunts. It’s a gritty, guns-and-bullets character study done with panache, skill and a slice of humor.

The Hero

Film Review

The Hero

Sam Elliott’s fictional career looks suspiciously like his real one in slow-going indie drama

In The Hero, what aims to be a self-referential, self-deprecating, late-career look back at regret ends up as a frustratingly predictable film with an overqualified, underutilized star standing front-and-center.

Cars 3

Film Review

Cars 3

Sentimental and scenic, trilogy-ending sports flick cruises to the finish line

Cars 3 is no ironclad Pixar classic but it is a well made film that delivers more or less the same sentimental moral as the original and Larry the Cable Guy is hardly in this one at all.

Paris Can Wait

Film Review

Paris Can Wait

Rambling romantic trip to Paris should have taken the bullet train

Paris Can Wait is exactly the sort of pretty, pseudo-exotic, post-menopausal romance you’d expect a wealthy, film-obsessed octogenarian to make in conjunction with Lifetime Films.

My Cousin Rachel

Film Review

My Cousin Rachel

Love, marriage and maybe murder in merry olde England

Between My Cousin Rachel's intriguing opening and its punchy ending, the nuanced script and subtle direction successfully elevate du Maurier’s self-consciously old-fashioned source material.
