"Living" is not quite as good as "Ikiru" (of which it is a remake), but it is a damn good re-interpretation.

Unlike some adaptations of classic novels, this one does not feel like a chore to sit through: an impressively mounted production that is emotionally true to the characters and their era.

It features enough eye candy to keep most kids engaged and boasts just enough heft that adults won’t spend 100 minutes looking at their watches.

It’s passably sweet entertainment but, just as it’s unlikely to stick in the craw, it won’t hold a place in one’s memory, either.

Uses tone, location, and a string of expert performances to leave an impression, even if the story itself is unremarkable.

Sweet and romantic with plenty of offbeat quirks and unexpected beats while never becoming saccharine or artificial.

Because "Last Night in Soho" starts out so strongly, it makes the lackluster final act all the more discouraging.

MPAA Rating: "R" (Violence, Sexual Content)
Genre: Drama/Adventure
Director: Ridley Scott
Cast: Matt Damon, Adam Driver, Jodie Comer, Ben Affleck, Harriet Walter, Alex Lawther

Scott transforms "The Last Duel" into a deconstruction of chivalry and an exploration of the ugliest aspects of misogyny in the late Middle Ages.

"Lamb" is very much a visual experience, relying on tone to buttress narrative weaknesses.

U.S. Release Date: 2014-01-17
MPAA Rating: "NR" (Violence)
Genre: Documentary
Director: Rory Kennedy
Cast: Henry Kissinger, Richard Armitage, Frank Snepp, Stuart Herrington, Terry McNamara

This isn’t a “big picture” movie in that doesn’t seek to answer questions that are beyond its limited scope but, within the parameters established by director Rory Kennedy, it leaves few stones unturned.
