      Meet the Donors: Does Money Talk? (2016) Ed Bark Meet the Donors likely won't remedy a thing. But as an up-close look at some of the country's biggest political givers and takers, it's something of an instant post-convention classic...

      Chasing Trane: The John Coltrane Documentary (2016) Roger Catlin Working with the family of the musician, there are a lot of revealing home movie and archival footage and the words of Coltrane - from interviews or writings - are spoken with cool authority by Denzel Washington.

      Mission: Impossible (1996) David Bianculli De Palma's film has some stunning sequences... But the movie so betrayed the spirit of the original TV series, by betraying the spirit and integrity of a formerly unimpeachable character, that the entire project smelled of cynicism.

      Elvis Presley: The Searcher (2018) David Hinckley Little of this is new information. But when even the 1968 comeback is 50 years in the past, a solid refresher course, that frames Elvis's legacy in a respectful and truthful way, borders on being essential.

      Dolores (2017) David Hinckley It's a story that should be told, and the fact it's being told while Huerta is still among us makes it all the more satisfying.

      Into the Night: Portraits of Life and Death (2017) David Hinckley Into the Night isn't a program everyone's going to want to watch. It's valuable anyway, because this is a game in which everyone's number will eventually be called.

      Arthur Miller: Writer (2017) David Bianculli This film biography of one of America's greatest playwrights is an extremely personal, subjective, and candid one, and with good reason.

      Ricky Gervais: Humanity (2018) David Bianculli This is the first Ricky Gervais standup special in seven years... the ease with which he continues to command the stage, totally controlling the rhythms and reactions while seeming fully conversational, is even more astounding.

      Maigret Sets a Trap (2016) David Hinckley Atkinson himself does Maigret well enough so that a newcomer might be surprised to know he does comedy, too.

      Tell Them We Are Rising: The Story of Black Colleges and Universities (2017) David Hinckley ... [Director Stanley Nelson] makes a compelling case that whatever the flaws and however uncertain the future of many HBCUs, they have taken America further down the right road.

      Chris Rock: Tamborine (2018) David Bianculli Rock, in every TV special he's ever released, manages to touch on a topic in a way, and with a fervor and intelligence, I end up remembering long afterward.

      Eric Clapton: Life in 12 Bars (2017) David Hinckley 12 Bars, with the apparent full consent of its subject, gives us a man with feet of clay.

      In the Cloud (2017) David Bianculli It plays as derivatively as it sounds, but there is one reason, behind Byrne, to watch: One of his co-stars is Laura Fraser, who played Lydia the Stevia lover on Breaking Bad.

      Woodstock (1970) David Bianculli ... this four-hour expanded Director's Cut edition... wasn't released until 1994. And in this case, more is better and the strained, overwhelming size of the film just seems to mirror the subject itself.

      I Am Not Your Negro (2016) David Hinckley I Am Not Your Negro doesn't slam the door on the possibility of America ever getting it right. It does relay, powerfully, Baldwin's admonition that anyone who thinks we're close has not been following the race.

      Bright (2017) David Bianculli It's not as horrible as many early reviews would suggest, but this first effort, at least, doesn't come close to living up to the potential of the premise, or the budget of the movie.

      Panama's Animal Highway (2017) Roger Catlin There's enough activity on Panama to supply a whole series on Panama's Animal Highway. For now, enjoy what they've packed into an hour.

      Judd Apatow: The Return (2017) David Bianculli ... and Apatow's self-deprecating use of visual aids, especially his photos with former President Obama, is priceless.

      1922 (2017) David Bianculli 1922 plays like an extended episode of Tales from the Crypt - and if approached that way, is lots of fun.
