      The Trial of the Chicago 7 (2020) Adrian Hennigan Sorkin does a great job condensing a trial that lasted nearly five months and whose transcript totaled 22,000 pages into an engrossing two-hour movie.

      Enola Holmes (2020) Adrian Hennigan With its imaginative storytelling and visual inventiveness, "Enola Holmes" comes highly recommended for youngsters looking for a sassy heroine to rival the likes of Alex Ryder and other male screen heroes.

      The Swamp (2020) Adrian Hennigan Yet while I didn't come out of "The Swamp" with any more respect for Republican lawmakers than when I went in (okay, maybe a smidgen in a couple of cases), I did find the film and Gaetz equally fascinating.

      Showbiz Kids (2020) Adrian Hennigan A reminder that though it's a horribly precarious path, Hollywood would be a far poorer place without its preternaturally gifted young actors.

      John Lewis: Good Trouble (2020) Adrian Hennigan Not all monuments are made of stone or bronze. This documentary is a worthy tribute to the Democratic congressman and civil rights activist.

      Stockton on My Mind (2020) Adrian Hennigan It's not often I say this, but this film deserves a sequel in five or 10 years' time to see how things work out.

      Athlete A (2020) Adrian Hennigan I've always hated the phrase 'Not all heroes wear capes,' but it turns out in this case it's true: They actually wear shiny leotards.
      Posted Jul 09, 2020
      The Outpost (2019) Adrian Hennigan The best, most believable war movie I've seen in years. It's an Afghan Alamo, where everyone is too busy dodging bullets and RPGs to issue vainglorious speeches.

      Irresistible (2020) Adrian Hennigan Irresistible won't lead to the overthrow of America's political system. But it may put a smile on your face. For now, that will just have to do.

      Bully. Coward. Victim. The Story of Roy Cohn (2019) Adrian Hennigan Thanks to Trump, Cohn's amoral approach to life still haunts us today, making this documentary more vital than we could have imagined just a few short years ago.
      Posted Jun 16, 2020
      The King of Staten Island (2020) Adrian Hennigan But, as I may have mentioned, the film is almost as long as a Trump rally, and what follows is a redemption tale that feels horribly clichéd about salt-of-the-earth firefighters.
      Posted Jun 16, 2020
      Da 5 Bloods (2020) Adrian Hennigan It's another passionate, vital piece of cinema from Lee.
      Posted Jun 11, 2020
      Spelling the Dream (2020) Adrian Hennigan The film is also surprisingly funny, thanks largely to comedian Hari Kondabolu.
      Posted Jun 11, 2020
      Apollo 11 (2019) Adrian Hennigan "Apollo 11" is a documentary that deserves to be seen on the largest TV screen and with the best sound system.
      Posted May 18, 2020
      Badass Beauty Queen: The Story of Anastasia Lin (2017) Adrian Hennigan Yet Lin is such a fascinating subject that the film overcomes its modest storytelling qualities and obvious biases by sticking her front and center, and letting her tell her own story.
      Posted May 18, 2020
      Becoming (2020) Adrian Hennigan "Becoming" is still a quietly informative, uplifting film.
      Posted May 18, 2020
      Jerry Seinfeld: 23 Hours to Kill (2020) Adrian Hennigan Whether talking about food, cellphones, relationships or the U.S. Postal Service, this felt like a 1 percenter struggling to find anything new to say about life, because he won't truly address how much his life has changed since the mid-1990s.
      Posted May 07, 2020
      Extraction (2020) Adrian Hennigan Far superior to Netflix's previous attempts at a big-budget action movie... it turns out that "Extraction" is precisely the testosterone-fueled pic we needed until our beloved movie theaters can reopen for business.
      Posted May 04, 2020
      Bad Education (2019) Adrian Hennigan In making you care for all of the characters, no matter what they may or may not have done, "Bad Education" proves itself to be one class act.
      Posted May 04, 2020
      Beastie Boys Story (2020) Adrian Hennigan This is funny and ultimately very touching - just make sure you stay for the end credits and some star cameos.
      Posted May 04, 2020
      The Half of It (2020) Adrian Hennigan This is a beautifully perceptive movie about love, identity and taco sausages, with a killer set-piece that rivals "The Graduate" for showstopping church scenes.
      Posted May 04, 2020
      Planet of the Humans (2019) Adrian Hennigan This cri de coeur from... Gibbs may lack balance and counterarguments, but it convincingly makes the case that "less must be the new more" if humankind is to have any chance of not being wiped out due to overpopulation and overconsumption,
      Posted May 04, 2020
      Circus of Books (2019) Adrian Hennigan [A] really heart-warming tale.
      Posted Apr 27, 2020
      Dark Waters (2019) Adrian Hennigan Haynes' film is a more somber affair. That doesn't mean "Dark Waters" isn't worth watching: It is a very well-told, faithful recreation of the protracted series of events that occurred in West Virginia and Ohio between 1996 and 2017.
      Posted Feb 25, 2020
      The Farewell (2019) Uri Klein Wang's film simmers on a low flame, which is also the source of its charm and the empathy it stirs.
      Posted Feb 12, 2020
      Uncut Gems (2019) Adrian Hennigan This is filmmaking of the highest order.
      Posted Jan 30, 2020
      1917 (2019) Uri Klein The result is an unparalleled and impressive spectacle, to which the eyes are riveted.
      Posted Jan 07, 2020
      Bombshell (2019) Adrian Hennigan "Bombshell" really could have been an atonal disaster... Yet it succeeds, thanks to a combination of star power, smart script and the use of film conventions.
      Posted Dec 27, 2019
      The Two Popes (2019) Adrian Hennigan Warm, witty and surprisingly moving, this comedy-drama is the most unlikely bromance you will see all year.
      Posted Dec 16, 2019
      Marriage Story (2019) Adrian Hennigan "Marriage Story" is funny, sad, tragic, comic (if only there were a word to combine those emotions) and, ultimately, rather heartbreaking.
      Posted Dec 02, 2019
      The Laundromat (2019) Adrian Hennigan The film works spasmodically, but its scattershot approach to the storyline ultimately proves its undoing.
      Posted Oct 21, 2019
      A Rainy Day in New York (2019) Uri Klein If "A Rainy Day in New York" aspires to be a situation comedy, the situations lack any comical element. If it intends to be a romantic comedy, the blend of the comic and the romantic seems forced and lacks any stable basis in the script.
      Posted Oct 16, 2019
      After the Wedding (2019) Uri Klein This is the second time we've watched this cinematic wedding and followed its aftermath, and if Freundlich's film conveys a message of any sort, it's that twice is sometimes once too many.
      Posted Oct 07, 2019
      Downton Abbey (2019) Uri Klein It's not a disgrace compared to the series, but it doesn't empower the television version or add anything to it. It's superfluous.
      Posted Sep 17, 2019
      Pain and Glory (2019) Uri Klein "Pain and Glory" is a lovely, moving and compelling work, like every Almodovar picture.
      Posted Aug 13, 2019
      The Red Sea Diving Resort (2019) Adrian Hennigan There's no doubting the ripeness of this yarn; it's just a shame that most of the characters are so bland and forgettable.
      Posted Jul 29, 2019
      Yesterday (2019) Uri Klein [I]t all seems truly unnecessary.
      Posted Jul 05, 2019
      Knock Down the House (2019) Adrian Hennigan For anyone with even the slightest interest in the seismic changes occurring in American politics, this is a must-see film.
      Posted Jul 02, 2019
      A Whore Like Me (2019) Shany Littman The project succeeds in exemplary fashion. Not just in terms of the content, but cinematically too.
      Posted Jun 12, 2019
      Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile (2019) Uri Klein [The film] is not directed very skillfully. One problem is that Berlinger uses too many songs on the soundtrack, to represent the period of the narrative. Still, the film works as a kind of existential allegory centering on a monster who exudes charisma.
      Posted Jun 01, 2019
      The Favourite (2018) Uri Klein In short, for the first time, a Lanthimos film brought me sheer enjoyment.
      Posted Feb 08, 2019
      Green Book (2018) Uri Klein The occupation with racism in 1960s America is translated in the movie into simplistic, sentimental kitsch, which creates for present-day America a reactionary white fantasy.
      Posted Jan 29, 2019
      Fyre (2019) Adrian Hennigan Overall, the Netflix documentary is far stronger on the behind-the-scenes details.
      Posted Jan 28, 2019
      Fyre Fraud (2019) Adrian Hennigan The Hulu doc works harder to paint a bigger picture -- such as how McFarland was able to access large amounts of money to fund his schemes. However, its patronizing depiction of millennials may well alienate many of them.
      Posted Jan 28, 2019
      The Silent Revolution (2018) Uri Klein What is the source of the romanticization and nostalgia? ...It is a longing that is especially evident in mainstream films like "The Silent Revolution," for simpler days, when it was possible to distinguish between the good guys and the bad guys.
      Posted Jan 23, 2019
      Mary Poppins Returns (2018) Uri Klein "Mary Poppins Returns" is one of those contemporary films that attack us with weightiness instead of wrapping us in warmth.
      Posted Dec 21, 2018
      Roma (2018) Adrian Hennigan A film that deserves to be seen by anyone who cares about cinema.
      Posted Dec 21, 2018
      Bird Box (2018) Adrian Hennigan It wants to be A Disquieting Place - but fails.
      Posted Dec 21, 2018
      The Angel (2018) Adrian Hennigan The film can only scratch the surface of this amazing story, and by doing so actually makes it seem much less remarkable than it really is.
      Posted Nov 16, 2018
      22 July (2018) Adrian Hennigan Leaves you a little disconcerted by its almost feel-good message that democracy can defeat fascism if only the youth of the world make their voices heard.
