If You Were the Last

Zoë Chao and Anthony Mackie star in this twee indie about two astronauts who have been stranded on a spaceship for three years and now find themselves debating whether they should have sex with each other. (Pros and cons abound.) It plays a little like a light and fluffy version […]

The Pigeon Tunnel

The latest from documentarian Errol Morris is a deep dive into the mind of John Le Carré, arguably the world’s most acclaimed spy novelist. More than just a birth-to-death account of the author’s life, however, the film plays almost as a therapy session, as Morris uncovers Le Carré’s motivations, fears, […]

Old Dads

If you haven’t had your fill of tired and lazy boomer jokes lately, this Netflix original should be right up your alley. Written and directed by and starring comedian Bill Burr alongside Bobby Cannavale and Bokeem Woodbine, it’s a non-stop softball rant about the Gen X/Gen Z divide, stuffed with […]

Taylor Swift: The Eras Tour

It was (and continues to be) the concert event of the year (decade? ever?). Yes, it’s Taylor’s world right now, and the Eras Tour film cements that fact firmly in the pop culture zeitgeist. The almost three-hour experience showcases the singer as a true tour de force, from the hard-hitting […]

The Mill

Lil Rel Howery tackles what is essentially a one-man show in this sci-fi thriller about an employee who wakes up in a dirt and concrete cell and is made to push his own Sisyphus’ stone around in a circle repeatedly for unknown reasons. What might have actually worked as a […]

Last Stop Larrimah

Investigating the 2017 disappearance (and suspected murder) of a man and his dog from an 11-person town in the far reaches of Northern Territory, Australia, this documentary will suck you in from the start and just gets crazier from there.

Totally Killer

A super-fun mash-up of, say ‘Back to the Future’ and ‘Scream’, this horror-comedy from director Nahnatchka Khan (‘Always Be My Maybe’), is a virtual must-see for children of the Eighties (or anyone who can happily relate). Starring Kiernan Shipka as a modern-day teen who travels back to 1987 to try […]

Ballerina

This super-taut and lightning-fast action flick from South Korea is a worthy complement to ‘John Wick’, starring Jeon Jong-seo as a one-woman killing machine out to avenge the death of her best friend. Director Lee Chung-hyun has put together a present-day feast of eye and mind candy with a slick, […]

The Caine Mutiny Court Martial

The swan song of noted director William Friedkin is a fitting and memorable send-off from a man who loved telling stripped-down stories about complex people. Based on Herman Wouk’s famous play, the film is as bare-bones as can be—set entirely in one room with no frills and not a word […]

Reptile

What starts out as a promising film about a grim murder and the detective struggling to solve it doesn’t take long to become a somewhat tiresome effort from first-time director Grant Singer—who may have seen one too many David Fincher films and wanted (too much) to make something like them. […]
