MPAA Rating: "R" (Sexual Content, Profanity, Nudity)
Genre: Drama
Director: Emma Forrest
Cast: Jemima Kirke, Lola Kirke, Jamie Dornan, Ben Mendelsohn, Billy Crystal, Jennifer Grey, Alice Eve, Scott Caan

The screenwriter’s guiding hand is too obviously present and becomes an impediment to any appreciation of the characters’ evolutions.

Although the lead character’s arc is troubled and conflicted, the ending makes her seem more like a superhero than the material warrants.

MPAA Rating: "NR"
Genre: Thriller
Director: Charles Laughton

It's possible to recognize that film’s stylistic mastery while acknowledging that some aspects are artifacts of a bygone era.

MPAA Rating: "R" (Violence, Sexual Content, Profanity, Nudity)
Genre: Horror/Thriller
Director: Nicolas Pesce
Cast: Christopher Abbott, Mia Wasikowska, Laia Costa

The director’s macabre flourishes and garish visuals can’t completely camouflage the hollow space at the production’s core.

MPAA Rating: "G"
Genre: Drama
Director: Fred Zinnemann
Cast: Paul Scofield, Wendy Hiller, Leo McKern, Robert Shaw, Orson Welles, Susannah York, Nigel Davenport, John Hurt

Offers an engaging, if somewhat dry, history lesson leavened with low-key drollness and powerful acting.

Esoteric qualities don’t merit an unqualified recommendation for a production more apt to deliver frustration than gratification.

This fantasy-adventure inspired by Arthurian legends, although entertaining for children in the age 8-12 bracket, may be a bore and a chore for adults.

MPAA Rating: "NR"
Genre: Drama/War
Director: Jean Renoir
Cast: Jean Gabin, Marcel Dalio, Pierre Fresnay, Erich von Stroheim, Dita Parlo

Renoir’s vision, themes, and implementation are as strong today as when he committed them to celluloid more than 80 years ago.

MPAA Rating: "NR" (Extreme Violence, Gore, Profanity)
Genre: Action/Thriller
Director: Vicky Jewson
Cast: Noomi Rapace, Sophie Nelisse, Indira Varma

Disposable action entertainment – a throw-away title that’s not bad enough to turn off but not good enough to seek out.

There are times when the movie seems quirky for quirkiness’ sake and the lead character comes across as an assemblage of tics and traits.
