MPAA Rating: "NR" (Sexual Content, Nudity, Violence, Profanity)
Genre: Thriller
Director: Chan-wook Park
Cast: Min-hee Kim, Tae-Ri Kim, Jung-woo Ha, Jin-woong Cho

One of the best neo-Hitchcockian mystery/thrillers to have emerged from any country in any language during the last few years, if not longer.

Run Time: 1:41
U.S. Release Date: 2016-10-21
MPAA Rating: "PG-13" (Violence, Profanity, Sexual Content)
Genre: Comedy/Thriller
Director: Greg Mottola
Cast: Zach Galifianakis, Isla Fisher, Jon Hamm, Gal Gadot, Patton Oswalt

A paint-by-numbers, creatively bankrupt “comedy” emerging from a studio system that has largely forgotten what it means to be genuinely funny.

Another in a long line of movie adaptations of revered novels that lose something significant in their translation from page to screen.

Provides a solid starting place for a series or, if the box office doesn’t warrant a continuation, an engaging stand-alone thriller.

It’s strangely refreshing to watch a courtroom drama where theatricality doesn’t trump meticulous examination.

You probably don’t need a review to know whether this film will work for you.

"The Girl on the Train" doesn’t derail but it’s not the smoothest of rides.

Harrowing, compelling cinema - perhaps not as wrenching as "12 Years a Slave" but not far removed.
