    'A Bag of Marbles' review: Children escape Nazis in war-torn France

    There's scarcely a scene in "A Bag of Marbles" that you haven't seen already — but those scenes have worked on most of us before, and if you can put up with the Nutella-thick styling of Christian Duguay's child's-eye Holocaust drama, they'll probably do so again. Based on Joseph Joffo's bestselling...

    'Souvenir' review: Isabelle Huppert's chanteuse aims for a comeback

    Isabelle Huppert as a has-been chanteuse is all a film fan should need to stoke the wanna-see factor for "Souvenir," and it probably doesn't hurt that there's a May-December romance as an extra incentive for devotees of the magnetic French superstar. But promise is all one's left with after Belgian...

    'I Feel Pretty' review: Amy Schumer's fable about fat-shaming is frankly depressing

    In a 2015 sketch aired on Comedy Central’s “Inside Amy Schumer,” the one called “New Body,” Schumer played a woman shopping for a wardrobe for the body she’s always wanted. The clothing store clerk, thin and deadpan, is the perfect foil for Schumer’s chipper, play-along reactions. With those two...

    'You Were Never Really Here' review: Joaquin Phoenix out-hammers Mike Hammer by several hammers

    When the Glasgow-born filmmaker Lynne Ramsay adapts a novel, she does what any responsive writer-director must. She listens to what speaks to her, personally, in the material, and creates colors, moods, images around a few key themes to support that selective interpretation. In her previous drama,...

    'Lean on Pete' review: A horse story of a different, darker color

    When we first see 15-year-old Charley Thompson, the human center of the devastating new film “Lean on Pete,” he’s jogging on the streets of Portland, Ore., a long way from the bohemian coffee bars and “Portlandia” cliches of popular culture. This is the other side of the tracks, the America all...

  • 'Chappaquiddick' review: Selling a tragedy, the Kennedy way

    'Chappaquiddick' review: Selling a tragedy, the Kennedy way

    A political biopic’s most difficult target lies in the elusive circle above character assassination and below hagiography. “Chappaquiddick” misses that target. But it’s a fairly intriguing mixture of strengths and weaknesses, a case of a sharp cast and a careful director toning up a script best...

  • 'Blockers' review: John Cena, Leslie Mann play parents out to stop a prom night sex pact

    'Blockers' review: John Cena, Leslie Mann play parents out to stop a prom night sex pact

    I went into “Blockers” cringing and came out smiling, which says more about me (double standard! They wouldn’t treat graduating high school males that way!) than it says about the movie. But that’s how moviegoing works. We’re pre-judgy that way. And “Blockers,” the feature directorial debut of...
