Review: Director Fernando Meirelles' " The Two Popes"
Believers of all religions can agree on one thing: the Vatican is an unlikely place for a bromance. The novelty of Fernando Meirelles' "The Two Popes" is right there in its title. There has only been one leader of the Roman Catholic Church going back centuries except in trying times of, you know,...

Review: Director Melina Matsoukas' Feature Debut, "Queen & Slim"
Rarely has a Tinder date ended so poorly than the one shown in "Queen & Slim." Even more rarely has a bad Tinder date produced such a great film. The remarkable "Queen & Slim" is a romance and a road movie, a film about outlaws on the run, two journeys of self-discovery and a nuanced social...

Review: Writer-Director Rian Johnson's "Knives Out"
Rian Johnson's "Knives Out" unravels not just a good old-fashioned murder mystery but the very fabric of the whodunit, pulling at loose threads until it has intricately, devilishly woven together something new and exceedingly delightful. For all the detective tales that dot television screens, the...

Review: Director Todd Haynes' "Dark Waters"
Todd Haynes' "Dark Waters," about the prolonged (and ongoing) legal fight to uncover the environmental damage of cancer-inducing "forever chemicals" and hold their corporate makers accountable, is a sober and ominous docudrama. On its surface, it's an unspectacular one. Its lead character, a...

Review: Director Marielle Heller's "A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood"
Director Marielle Heller frames “ A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood ” as if it were an episode of “Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood,” with miniature sets of cars and bridges to illustrate New York and Pittsburgh. Mr. Rogers, played with clear-eyed purpose by Tom Hanks, introduces the audience to the...

Review: "Frozen 2" From Directors Jennifer Lee, Chris Buck
Picture this: A princess is in distress. It looks bad. Her dashing young man rides up in the nick of time and says, “Here I am to save you, my dear!” Actually, he doesn’t. He just says, “I'm here.

Review: Director James Mangold's "Ford v Ferrari"
Cops might do well to position their speed traps near movie theaters wherever the new film "Ford v Ferrari" is playing. They might fund their whole year's budget busting speeders peeling out of the parking lots. This infectious and engrossing story of the 1966 showdown on a French racetrack between...

Review: Noah Baumbach's "Marriage Story"
Noah Baumbach is a keen observer of life's banalities. His films relish in the strange and wonderful and awkward things people say and do in the course of the day. But his real magic is turning ordinariness into cinema. He can take that feeling of post-graduate paralysis or middle-age stasis,...

Review: Director Alma Har'el's "Honey Boy"
"Honey Boy" will break your heart. It hardly matters if you've never given a second thought to the circumstances of Shia LaBeouf's life, his childhood or his rocky early adult years. But this is the kind of universally moving work that can only emerge from something immensely specific and personal...
