Review: Director Tim Burton's "Dumbo"
The original "Dumbo" was released in the summer of 1941 while Germany was spreading across Europe and war was breaking out in the Pacific. Crafted as a simpler Disney fable after the more extravagant "Fantasia" disappointed at the box office, "Dumbo" — only 64 minutes in length — took flight just...

Review: Director John Lee Hancock's "The Highwaymen"
It's hard to begin watching the Netflix movie "The Highwaymen" and not think about the way it will inevitably end — in a famous ambush and a hail of bullets. That's what happened to Bonnie Parker and Clyde Barrow on May 23, 1934, the day the law finally caught up to the couple who had spent years...

Review: Director David F. Sandberg's "Shazam!"
Holy superhero fatigue, Batman, "Shazam!" is actually good. OK, so it's basically "Big" with superheroes and villains instead of businesspeople and girlfriends, but director David F. Sandberg has infused his film with so much heart and charm that it hardly matters. Even the deficiencies, like the...

Review: Laure de Clermont-Tonnerre's "The Mustang"
We don't find out our protagonist's name for quite some time in "The Mustang," the feature debut of French writer-director Laure de Clermont-Tonnerre. All we know at first is what we see and what Belgian actor Matthias Schoenaerts projects. A psychologist played by Connie Britton, in a brief but...

Review: Director Vincent D'Onofrio's "The Kid"
"There's no such thing as the West anymore." That's actually not a line from "The Kid," Vincent D'Onofrio's new coming-of-age Western starring Ethan Hawke, Dane DeHaan and Chris Pratt. It's from Sam Shepard's play "True West," currently on Broadway — and also starring Hawke. In fact, can we talk...

Review: Director J.C. Chandor's "Triple Frontier"
Job opportunities seldom diverge as greatly as they do for the former special forces operatives of J.C. Chandor's "Triple Frontier." There is selling condos or taking contract work in an African warzone. There's stocking shelves at Walmart or taking down a South African drug lord. And you thought...

Review: Director Sebastian Lelio's "Gloria Bell"
Everyone is vanishing around Julianne Moore's title character in Sebastian Lelio's "Gloria Bell." The disappearances don't come with blood-curdling shrieks or thundering score cues, but with the humdrum ebb of middle age. People just move away or recede from view. Gloria is a divorced, fifty-...
