Review: Director Yates' "Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald"
Like the bottomless trunk totted by "magizoolologist" Newt Scamander, "Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald" is a mixed bag of wonders. Newt (Eddie Redmayne) can reach into his suitcase and, like Mary Poppins before him, pull out just about anything. And it sometimes feels as though J.K...

Review: Director Fede Alvarez's "The Girl in the Spider's Web"
No, "The Girl in the Spider's Web" isn't a Spider-man spinoff about a young woman ensnarled by Peter Parker. But you'd be forgiven for thinking the latest, revamped iteration of Stieg Larsson's thrillers has some superhero DNA. This, Lisbeth Salander's third big-screen incarnation in nine years,...

One DP got the opportunity to collaborate with a director he long admired, yielding a film which earned a six-minute standing ovation at this year’s Cannes Film Festival. Another two-time Oscar nominee lensed an ad campaign for a director which translated into their again teaming on a feature,...

Review: Jonah Hill Makes Directorial Debut With "Mid90s"
A year after Greta Gerwig's "Lady Bird" comes another actor-turned-director's memory-inspired California-set coming-of-age tale from the boutique film studio A24. This time, the time period has been dialed back a few years (from the early '00s to the mid-'90s), Dave Mathews Band has been traded for...

Review: Paul Dano Makes Directorial Debut With "Wildlife"
It's fall of 1960 in Montana when we meet the Brinson family in "Wildlife ," a carefully considered and deeply moving adaptation of a Richard Ford novel about a fracturing marriage and the teenage son witnessing it all. Things don't start out bad, or don't seem to be. Jerry Brinson (Jake Gyllenhaal...

Review: "The Conners" Shows Life After Roseanne
Can there be a "Roseanne" without Roseanne? The answer is yes, indeed. There can even be a pretty good sitcom. And you might not miss her that much. ABC on Tuesday night aired the first episode of "The Conners," a spinoff of "Roseanne" without Roseanne Barr. An overdose of pain pills may be the...

Review: Director Marielle Heller's "Can You Ever Forgive Me?"
The early 1990s New York of Marielle Heller's "Can You Ever Forgive Me?" isn't so long ago but it already feels staggeringly distant. It's a New York of publishing industry cocktail parties, of book stores, lots of them, and of scheming, foul-mouthed eccentrics. Lee Israel (Melissa McCarthy) and...

Review: Director George Tillman Jr.'s "The Hate U Give"
"The Hate U Give " begins with a scene at the family dinner table where a father is giving his young kids "the talk" — the one in which he explains to his 9-year-old daughter, Starr, and toddler son exactly what to do when they're pulled over by a police officer. Hands on the dashboard. No sudden...

Review: Director Damien Chazelle's "First Man"
Nearly a half-century has passed since the majestic moment when Neil Armstrong stepped carefully onto the lunar landscape, left foot first, taking that giant leap for mankind. Whether you were alive then and glued to the TV, or relived it later through that iconic, grainy NASA footage, what you...
