      Fallen Leaves (2023) John Powers A sentimental tale saved from soppiness by its rigorously dry style.

      Maestro (2023) Anastasia Tsioulcas The film brims with energy from Bernstein's early years, cast in black and white, to the super color-saturated, drug-fueled 1980s. Its dazzling visuals match the music — and yes, somewhere in there, Maestro is also a movie about making music.

      Stamped From the Beginning (2023) Eric Deggans Won't necessarily surprise those who already know this history, but may still be tough to watch for those sensitive to stories about the exploitation of marginalized people.

      May December (2023) Justin Chang Haynes, working from a smart, layered script by Samy Burch, comes at this material from a fascinating angle.

      The Killer (2023) Justin Chang I'm not suggesting his story cries out for a sequel, but by the time this very dark comedy reaches its strangely sunny ending, you're curious to see what job this killer — and Fincher himself — might take on next.

      TAYLOR SWIFT | THE ERAS TOUR (2023) Bilal Qureshi It is wildly entertaining but it is also a curious product that speaks to the larger themes of our IP-based age of content – recycled, reused and repackaged spin-offs that find new, often exciting ways to extract consumers.

      Priscilla (2023) Aisha Harris Coppola's glistening and brooding dissection of Priscilla's life with Elvis reveals a clear-eyed vision for depicting the intoxication of fame and how easily it's wielded upon the young and impressionable.

      Jules (2023) Bob Mondello Director Marc Turtletaub keeps the mood light, though there's a poignant undertow to a story that's as much about being allowed to grow old with dignity as it is about an extraterrestrial.
      Posted Oct 25, 2023
      Killers of the Flower Moon (2023) Bob Mondello Along with sweeping vistas, rampant criminality and gaslit marital melodrama, the film is a gangster tale of greed, racism, lies and violence. It is, in short, American history.
      Posted Oct 20, 2023
      Anatomy of a Fall (2023) Justin Chang Anatomy of a Fall persuasively suggests that every marriage is ultimately something of a mystery.

      Dicks: The Musical (2023) Glen Weldon While Dicks: The Musical is a lot of dumb fun and the songs mostly work, the film is locked in a struggle with itself that's the inevitable result of its origins as a theatrical revue.
      Posted Oct 13, 2023
      The Creator (2023) Justin Chang Even the most strikingly beautiful images — like the one of high-tech laser beams shimmering over a beach at sunset — are tethered to a story and characters that never take on a life of their own.

      Bottoms (2023) Aisha Harris In the realm of black comedies unabashedly embracing teen nastiness, Heathers walked so Jawbreaker could run, Mean Girls could fly, and so Bottoms can now proudly land in outer space.

      Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Mutant Mayhem (2023) Stephen Thompson If you've stayed away from TMNT over the years — whether because of "Cowabunga!" or "Ninja Rap" or Michael Bay or whatever — don't be afraid to break out your swords, shout something that sounds cool and leap back into the fray.

      Barbie (2023) Aisha Harris It's a Barbie world you'll be more than happy to have visited, even as it confounds.
      Posted Jul 19, 2023
      Theater Camp (2023) Bob Mondello "Theater Camp" kind of has my name on it.
      Posted Jul 17, 2023
      Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny (2023) Bob Mondello Mangold's action sequences may not have the lightness Steven Spielberg gave the ones in Indy's four previous adventures, but they're still madcap and decently exciting.
      Posted Jul 01, 2023
      The Flash (2023) Glen Weldon Like its main hero, The Flash doesn't hide how hungry it is to be seen as worthy, even though it spends much of its time running on empty.

      The Blackening (2022) Aisha Harris Many Black viewers have yelled at the screen for the preposterous decisions made in countless movies like this one. The Blackening will be a different experience.

      Being Mary Tyler Moore (2023) David Bianculli Being Mary Tyler Moore helps you appreciate the show, and the actor, even more.

      The Little Mermaid (2023) Aisha Harris My nostalgia for the 1989 Little Mermaid, a movie I can quote by heart, has probably never been stronger than it is now. Neither has my wearied sense of déjà vu.

      Love to Love You, Donna Summer (2023) Eric Deggans Offers important context about her talent and lots of great performance footage. But like the artist herself, the film can also be maddeningly enigmatic, just when you want to know more.
      Posted May 18, 2023
      The Night of the 12th (2022) John Powers Focusing on a single, real-life murder investigation she covers, Moll has created a film that keeps looking like the conventional police procedural that it actually isn't.

      Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 (2023) Glen Weldon To watch Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 is to watch a filmmaker under the wildly mistaken belief that the best way to get you to absorb what he's saying is by screaming it directly into your ear.

      Are You There God? It's Me, Margaret. (2023) Linda Holmes The movie goes easy on a lot of the elements Fremon Craig could have dialed up, and it's to the story's benefit.

      Are You There God? It's Me, Margaret. (2023) Justin Chang More than 50 years later, it's been terrifically adapted to the big screen by the writer-director Kelly Fremon Craig, with nearly all its warmth, humor and wry wisdom intact.

      John Mulaney: Baby J (2023) Linda Holmes What works so well in Baby J is what works in a lot of good comedy: that combination of recognition and bafflement when you look at something that's true but seems impossible.

      How to Blow Up a Pipeline (2022) John Powers The abiding flaw of political movies is that the filmmakers are so busy promoting their beliefs they forget to make a good movie. How to Blow Up a Pipeline doesn't fall into that trap.

      Air (2023) Bob Mondello "Air" is effortlessly entertaining, but it wants to be about more than just the marketing triumph of an underdog shoe company.

      A Thousand and One (2023) Bob Mondello Character portraits just don't come sharper than "A Thousand And One."

      Air (2023) Aisha Harris A soulless dramatization of how a giant corporation convinced a promising NBA rookie to make its already wealthy and well-off board members, CEOs, and salespeople even wealthier and set for life.

      Dungeons & Dragons: Honor Among Thieves (2023) Glen Weldon Given how gleefully Dungeons & Dragons: Honor Among Thieves embraces and exults in its genre elements, it's interesting to note that it's all the stuff geared to making the film accessible to the mainstream that is the most dully generic thing about it.

      Rye Lane (2023) Aisha Harris The material strikes a balance between specificity and broad humor that fosters confidence and playfulness that's impossible to resist.

      A Thousand and One (2023) Justin Chang None of this comes off as didactic; Rockwell deftly weaves her commentary into a story that turns out to be less conventional and more surprising than it looks.

      Shazam! Fury of the Gods (2023) Glen Weldon It's apparent quite early that the narrative fuel mixture of Shazam: Fury of the Gods is off.

      Return to Seoul (2022) Teresa Xie Return to Seoul is a film that's easy to love: it has a killer soundtrack, a magnetic protagonist, and a gorgeous cinematic backdrop filled with rich colors and empty bottles of Soju.

      Ant-Man and The Wasp: Quantumania (2023) Glen Weldon As depicted here, Scott's entire personality, the whole of his character, is defined thus: "I love my daughter Cassie. Where is Cassie? What have you done with Cassie?"

      Magic Mike's Last Dance (2023) Bob Mondello As charming and gallant and appealing as Channing Tatum still is... there's a bit less magic this time from "Magic Mike."

      All That Breathes (2022) John Powers In an age when we're constantly reminded of all that's bad, All That Breathes celebrates good things it's easy to forget: the wonder of life, the virtues of compassion and the human capacity to make the world better.

      Saint Omer (2022) John Powers What makes the movie unforgettable are the scenes in the courtroom, every moment of them gripping.

      White Noise (2022) John Powers White Noise is bursting with fun things to watch. And though the story takes place in the 1980s, it tackles present day preoccupations: human-caused disaster, media saturation, drug addiction and consumerism.
      Posted Jan 06, 2023
      Living (2022) John Powers Rather than shake us to our core like Ikiru, Living teaches us a life lesson we can all agree on. It's like an Afterschool Special for grownups — a very good one, mind you.

      Women Talking (2022) Bob Mondello Anyone clear-eyed about the world today will recognize the truths that these women are talking.

      Babylon (2022) Bob Mondello It is too much and often, especially in call-outs to "Singin' In The Rain," a little on the nose. It is also clearly heartfelt and that counts.
      Posted Dec 26, 2022
      No Bears (2022) Justin Chang It's a fierce critique of small-town traditionalism and religious dogma. But while this is an angry and ultimately devastating movie, it's also a surprisingly playful and inventive one.

      Nanny (2022) Pilar Galvan The film is an experience for the senses; you'll hold your breath as you're consumed.

      EO (2022) John Powers EO is a thrillingly imaginative piece of filmmaking: a strange, haunting epic about a donkey that couldn't feel more of our moment.

      She Said (2022) Justin Chang As a lover of movies about journalism, I ate up every detail of the drama inside the Times building, even while knowing that I was watching a more polished and streamlined version of events.
