Review: "The Matrix Resurrections"
How deep does the rabbit hole go? Deep enough, it turns out, to accommodate at least four movies, several videogames, a comic and countless pairs of sunglasses. In the 22 years since the "The Matrix" debuted, it has never left us — or depending on your pill of choice, we have never left it. Despite...

Review: Maggie Gyllenhaal Makes Directorial Debut With "The Lost Daughter"
Motherhood. It's such a rich subject for art to ponder, you'd think we'd have already seen every kind of mother onscreen. But actually we haven't. Sure, we've seen good moms, bad moms, crazy moms, selfish moms, generous moms, loving moms, cold moms. But what strikes home so vividly in "The Lost...

Review:  Guillermo del Toro's "Nightmare Alley"
A title like " Nightmare Alley," especially when paired with a filmmaker like Guillermo del Toro, suggests a certain kind of movie. Del Toro, the director of "The Shape of Water" and "Pan's Labyrinth," has a signature style after all. But "Nightmare Alley" is not about a haunted house or the...

Review: Director Jon Watts' "Spider-Man: No Way Home"
Spider-Man movies have come in such flurries over the last two decades that you could almost tell time by them. Who needs the long centuries of the Triassic, Jurassic and the Cretaceous, when, in the span of just one generation you can have the Tobey epoch, the Garfield era and the Tomozoic? The...

Review: Director Adam McKay's "Don't Look Up"
You know you're in deep doodoo when that planet-destroying comet on a collision course with Earth isn't your biggest problem. Your biggest problem: You're the scientist who discovered the darned thing but nobody has the patience or the bandwidth or the political will to believe it. And it's coming...

Review: Writer-Director Aaron Sorkin's "Being the Ricardos"
If things had gone according to plan, Lucille Ball would have been a major movie star. Instead, she had to settle for being the queen of television comedy for over 25 years. Not exactly a lousy alternative. But the new film "Being the Ricardos" does make one wonder if Ball may have had a few other...

Review: Steven Spielberg's "West Side Story"
We're so rife with reboots and remakes today that it can take a moment to gauge just what Steven Spielberg's "West Side Story" is. It isn't a papered-over modernizing or a thinly disguised retread. It's a feat of reconstruction. Spielberg, Tony Kushner and Steven Sondheim have taken the original...
