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.

Run Time: 1:36
U.S. Release Date: 2021-06-18
MPAA Rating: "PG"
Genre: Animated
Director: Enrico Casarosa
Cast: Jacob Tremblay, Jack Dylan Grazer, Emma Berman, Marco Barricelli, Saverino Raimondo, Maya Rudolph, Jim Gaffigan

The message is laudable and Luca’s heart is in the right place but its sledgehammer tactics make parts of the movie feel more like a homily than summer entertainment.

Run Time: 1:43
U.S. Release Date: 2021-04-30
MPAA Rating: "R" (Profanity)
Genre: Drama/Comedy
Director: Ben Sharrock
Cast: Amir El-Masry, Vikash Bhai, Kais Nashif

What starts out as an exercise in absurdist and surreal comedy turns into a serious examination of the artificial boundaries that divide humanity in the name of nationalism.

Run Time: 1:30
U.S. Home Release Date: 2021-05-11
MPAA Rating: "PG-13" (Profanity, Adult Situations, Partial Nudity)
Genre: Drama
Director: Robin Wright
Cast: Robin Wright, Demian Bichir, Sarah Dawn Pledge, Kim Dickens

Both a tribute to the triumph of the human spirit and an examination of the difficulties of setting aside modern conveniences for primitive survival.

Works when viewed through the narrow lens of one character’s personal redemption rather than through a wider portal.

Run Time: 1:52
U.S. Release Date: 2020-12-11
MPAA Rating: "R" (Profanity)
Genre: Drama
Director: Steven Soderbergh
Cast: Meryl Streep, Dianne Wiest, Candice Bergen, Lucas Hedges, Gemma Chan, Dan Algrant

As with almost everything directed by Steven Soderbergh, there’s a compulsive watchability to the proceedings.

Run Time: 1:58
U.S. Home Release Date: 2021-02-23
MPAA Rating: "R" (Violence, Profanity, Nudity)
Genre: Thriller/Drama
Director: Dan Friedkin
Cast: Guy Pearce, Claes Bang, Vicky Krieps, Roland Moller, August Diehl, Olivia Grant

Something of an old-fashioned courtroom melodrama, complete with impassioned speeches, a sneering prosecutor, an antagonistic judge, and a last-minute gotcha!

Run Time: 1:54
U.S. Home Release Date: 2021-02-02
MPAA Rating: "R" (Violence, Profanity)
Genre: Thriller
Director: Thomas Bezucha
Cast: Kevin Costner, Diane Lane, Lesley Manville, Kayli Carter, Jeffrey Donovan, Will Brittain, Booboo Stewart

The second half, when the thriller elements kick into high gear, is considerably better than the dour, meandering first half.

Run Time: 1:37
U.S. Release Date: 2020-10-06
MPAA Rating: "R" (Profanity, Violence, Sexual Content)
Genre: Thriller
Director: Veena Sud
Cast: Peter Sarsgaard, Joey King, Mireille Enos, Cas Anvar, Devery Jacobs

Exemplifies Blumhouse at its worst and it’s not hard to see why this failed Hitchcock wannabe was never released theatrically. Even at the attractive price of “free,” it’s not worth it.

Run Time: 1:37
U.S. Release Date: 2020-09-18
MPAA Rating: "R" (Sexual Content, Nudity, Profanity)
Genre: Drama
Director: William Olsson
Cast: Alexandra Daddario, Takehiro Hira, Carice van Houten, Andrew Rothney, Misuzu Kanno

The film suffers from an overly-familiar narrative – other films have told with greater power similar stories of lost, self-destructive souls.
