Quick Take: THE UNITED WAY
Very slickly made, with lots of interesting archive footage, but there’s an obvious downside.
Review: MARE OF EASTTOWN
This limited series is a thrilling and moving tale about community and grief.
Review: CITY LIGHTS
It is Charlie Chaplin’s last masterpiece, a box-office hit and a reminder in 1931 that silents still could impress.
Quick Take: DANCING QUEENS
A contrived and predictable story.
Quick Take: THE CONJURING: THE DEVIL MADE ME DO IT
The third chapter in this series is no better than all the spin-offs the first movie inspired.
Quick Take: ARMY OF THE DEAD
It looks like Zack Snyder is having more fun than when he’s making superhero movies; there’s even a zombie tiger here.
Quick Take: TOVE
Alma Pöysti is fine, but the film can’t seem to find an intriguing way to connect Tove Jansson to her wildly creative Moomin books and comic strips.
Review: HIROSHIMA, MON AMOUR
It often feels like we’re invited into the lovers’ private bubble, with the real world going on outside.
