MPAA Rating: "R" (Sexual Content)
Genre: Drama
Director: Pedro Almodovar
Cast: Penelope Cruz, Milena Smit, Rossy De Palma, Aitana Sánchez-Gijón, Israel Elejalde

Thoroughly conventional by the director’s standards, the central narrative is accessible and offers a wrenching emotional experience.

MPAA Rating: "R" (Sexual Content, Disturbing Images, Nudity)
Genre: Western/Drama
Director: Jane Campion
Cast: Benedict Cumberbatch, Kirsten Dunst, Jesse Plemons, Kodi Smit-McPhee

Perhaps not as powerful or wrenching as Campion intended for it to be but "The Power of the Dog" remains an unsettling piece of cinema.

If someone was to watch clips, they might be amused (or at least entertained) but it’s a different matter to sit through the entirety of Ed Wood’s opus of ineptitude.

MPAA Rating: "PG-13" (Profanity, Sexual Content, Racism)
Genre: Drama/Thriller
Director: Rebecca Hall

Genre: Thriller
Director: Timur Bekmambetov

Cast: Vanessa Kirby, Shia LaBeouf, Ellen Burstyn, Iliza Shlesinger, Benny Safdie, Sarah Snook

Not for those who crave light, uplifting entertainment but for anyone who wants a precise, visceral experience from a motion picture.

Although there are times when some of the tonal shifts can be jarring, the production as a whole feels rambunctious – a perfect concoction for the #meToo era.

Despite its awkward and uneven elements, "The Prom" offers enough high-energy moments to be seen as a passable motion picture adaptation of the stage play.

As science fiction, it's a little disappointing but as horror, it’s a rousing success – a shocking and disturbing gem.

By taking a different road, Iannucci has provided something that captures the essence of "David Copperfield" without being constrained by every detail.
