MOVIE REVIEWS
 

The Girl on the Train

This psychosexual thriller desperately wants to be the next "Gone Girl," but the audience will reach the final stop far ahead of the train.

The Birth of a Nation

A film of exquisite beauty exploring the ugliest chapter in the story of America. It is a chorus of rage, sung without malice but also without apology.

Demon

An intriguing premise that never builds much of a sense of dread, this Polish/Israeli horror/comedy is a better idea than movie.

Storks

Middle-of-the-road animation for kiddies with some humor thrown in for adults that doesn’t really click.

The Hollars

A great big warm, wet hug of a movie, this dramedy about a wayward kid going home is weighted with cliches but rings true and avoids tripping over pretensions.

Blair Witch

You can't recapture lightning in a bottle, but "Blair Witch" is thematically and aesthetically a true inheritor to the original game-changing film.

Complete Unknown

Splendidly acted by Rachel Weisz and Michael Shannon, "Complete Unknown" questions one woman’s false personas and the very concept of identity as a fixed point.

Sully

Though it chooses to cut its story thread in strange places, "Sully" is still an engrossing tale of an unremarkable man who did an extraordinary thing.
