Review: Nat Faxon and Jim Rash's "Downhill"
The foreign-language film remake has never been the most esteemed sort of Hollywood production, but the timing of "Downhill," a remake of Ruben Östlund's 2014 Swedish film "Force Majeure," hasn't done it any favors. "Downhill" skies into theater just days after the historic Oscar victory for Bong...

"Honeyland" Makes Oscar History, Shatters Cultural Divide
Ljubomir Stefanov and Tamara Kotevska were in a hard-to-reach area of Northern Macedonia — about as far from the Oscars as possible — when they came upon the beekeeper who would be their subject in their acclaimed documentary "Honeyland." While working on a short video commissioned by a nature...

Movement Coach Taught De Niro, Pacino To Act Younger For "The Irishman"
Would you have the gumption to tell Al Pacino to act his age? That was the unique position Gary Tacon, the movement coach of "The Irishman," found himself in on the set of Martin Scorsese's crime epic. On Pacino's first day shooting, the scene called for the 79-year-old actor, playing a 40-...

Review: Director Ladj Ly's "Les Miserables"
Ladj Ly's muscular police procedural "Les Miserables" is much leaner than Victor Hugo's sprawling novel and shares little with it besides a suburban Paris setting. But they're united in their sympathy for — and belief in the formidable power of — the underclass. "Les Miserables," France's Oscar...

Review: Director Sam Mendes' "1917"
It's been a good time for World War I buffs — especially if they're also movie buffs. A year ago director Peter Jackson applied state-of-the-art technology to century-old war footage to bring the Great War alive with sudden, stunning immediacy in his documentary "They Shall Not Grow Old." And now,...

Review: Director Tom Hooper's "Cats"
There's apparently enough groundbreaking technology used in "Cats" for NASA to send a rocket to unexplored parts of the universe — perhaps to a far-off planet where cats sing, dance on two legs, and recite T.S. Eliot poetry in half-Cockney accents. But let's forget the much-discussed "digital fur...

Review: J.J. Abrams' "Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker"
Not much has caused a disturbance in the "Star Wars" galaxy quite like Rian Johnson's "The Last Jedi," an erratic but electric movie that, regardless of how you felt about it, was something worth arguing about. The same can't be said for J. J. Abrams' "Rise of Skywalker," a scattershot, impatiently...

Review: Writer-Director Greta Gerwig's "Little Women"
There is a wild urgency to Greta Gerwig's "Little Women" that hardly seems possible for a film based on a 150-year-old book. But such is the magic of combining Louisa May Alcott's enduring story of those four sisters with Gerwig's deliciously feisty, evocative and clear-eyed storytelling that makes...
