"Ingrid Goes West" is part comedy, part tragedy, part horror/thriller, and part social commentary.
Works not only as a portal into what happened 37 years ago but as an understanding of the difficulties of handling hostage situations.
Exactly what the average movie-goer would expect from something with this title and these actors and, judged on that basis, it rarely misfires.

While "Logan Lucky" is 3/4ths of a very good movie, the final half-hour becomes narratively unfocused as it strives to tie up some loose ends.
Weird without being off-putting and offers a different kind of experience than most films.
Eye-opening and humanizing, this is as atypical an animated feature as one is likely to find washing ashore in the United States.

"Detroit" functions as much as a dramatization of things that happened as a cautionary tale of where we could be headed.
Brash, energetic, and exhilarating, any points it loses because of a lack of originality are gained back as a result of Theron’s dedication.
"Cars 3" has saved the best for last and will deflect the concerns of those who think this series has taken too many extra laps.
