    'Star Wars: The Last Jedi' review: Rey and the Resistance prove irresistible

    Great fun, and a reminder that unpopular political leaders mock the Resistance in other galaxies, too, “Star Wars: The Last Jedi” boasts a bald-faced lie of a subtitle — sorry, folks, last Jedi, no more “Star Wars” movies! — and special guest appearances from some old, familiar faces. The oldest...

    'Una' review: Mara, Mendelsohn play victim, abuser at a crossroads

    "How did they ever make a film of 'Lolita'?" reads the tagline beside that famous red lollipop. The answer: They didn't. Back in 1962, the subject of pedophilia was far too controversial for Hollywood, as industry censors insisted that no one depict "any inference of sex perversion," nor the "deliberate...

    'Wonder Wheel' review: Woody Allen, enough. Enough.

    Set in 1950, which doesn’t stop one character from catching the 1933 movie “Flying Down to Rio” at the local bijou, Woody Allen’s “Wonder Wheel” is narrated by a budding dramatist working as a Coney Island lifeguard. Justin Timberlake plays our host, who sleeps with a needy, disillusioned clam...

    'Bill Nye: Science Guy' review: A happy warrior in the fight for science

    "Bill Nye: Science Guy" is an efficiently thought-provoking study of what it means to be a rational and analytical advocate for science in an age when deniers of evolution and climate change often seem to have higher profiles, deeper pockets and louder voices. But it's even more interesting as...

    'Gilbert' review: A portrait of the comedian he is today

    The voice! That high-pitched, kvetchy, caterwauling rasp — the sound of an angry Jewish uncle from 1940 shouting in your face. The sour squint of disapproval. The teeth so bulgy they look like dentures that want to bite you. And the jokes! Vulgar (and cheap) enough that they'd seem right at home...

  • 'The Future Perfect' review: A delightfully rich immigrant experience in Argentina

    'The Future Perfect' review: A delightfully rich immigrant experience in Argentina

    A sixty-five minute film is always a difficult commodity to place, yet "The Future Perfect" is such an unpretentious delight. By replicating the quasi-stilted dialogue and stiffness of language classes, which director/co-writer Nele Wohlatz has spill out of the classroom and into daily conversation,...

  • 'Sylvio' review: A 9-to-5 ape betrays his mild persona

    'Sylvio' review: A 9-to-5 ape betrays his mild persona

    Curios don't get much more curious than "Sylvio," which has the distinction of being both the weirdest, and most affecting, feature ever made starring a man in a monkey suit — or, to be more precise, a man in a monkey suit wearing a monkey suit. The story of a forlorn "ape" who has a 9-to-5 office...
