An offbeat and strangely engaging motion picture, "Once Upon a Time, Cinema" is worth a look for those with an interest in the history of Iranian cinema.

A poorly-designed heist leads to a surprisingly lackluster experience, unless you’re on hand primarily for the fun of seeing eight talented actresses interacting.

Invested in audiences buying these two as a mismatched couple but the lack of a connection between Faris and Derbez makes it an unwise venture.

MPAA Rating: "R" (Violence, Profanity, Sexual Content, Nudity)
Genre: Thriller
Director: Brad Silberling
Cast: Ben Kingsley, Hera Hilmar, Peter Serafinowicz

Compensates for narrative hiccups by offering an effective performance by Ben Kingsley and a story that goes to places many similar films would avoid.

Although probably a little too long, the film succeeds in being both emotionally forceful and dramatically satisfying.

Director: Shane Abbess
Cast: Daniel MacPherson, Kellan Lutz, Teagan Croft, Temeura Morrison, Rachel Griffiths, Isabel Lucas, Luke Ford

As far as it goes, the first film is an enjoyable space opera but, as a stand-alone, it doesn’t work.

This epic documentary explores the rise and fall of one of football’s iconic players, the status of race relations in America, and the impact of celebrity-worship on modern culture.

Works as a fantasy, an adventure, a dark comedy, a story of love between a girl and her pet, and a vicious satire.

MPAA Rating: "R" (Profanity)
Genre: Drama/Comedy
Director: David Gordon Green
Cast: Sandra Bullock, Billy Bob Thornton, Anthony Mackie, Joaquim de Almeida, Ann Dowd, Scoot McNairy, Zoe Kazan

For the filmmakers, one tone-deaf mistake at the end doesn’t undo this compelling behind-the-scenes peek at how buffoons get elected and men of substance become political roadkill.

"The Overnight" is short enough not to overstay its welcome but too short to effectively develop the characters and their situations.
