A gritty crime saga which follows the lives of an elite unit of the LA County Sheriff's Dept. and the state's most successful bank robbery crew as the outlaws plan a seemingly impossible heist on the Federal Reserve Bank. A traumatized veteran, unafraid of violence, tracks down missing girls for a living.

A crime-drama, about the cultural aversion of a group of punk rockers in a conservative Texas town. Ballerina Dominika Egorova is recruited to 'Sparrow School,' a Russian intelligence service where she is forced to use her body as a weapon. Their ongoing battle with a rival, more-affluent clique leads to a controversial hate crime that questions the morality of American justice. In 1892, after nearly two decades of fighting the Cheyenne, the Apache, and the Comanche natives, the United States Cavalry Captain and war hero, Joseph Blocker, is ordered to escort the ailing Cheyenne chief, Yellow Hawk--his most despised enemy--to his ancestral home in Montana's Valley of the Bears. Nauseated with a baleful anger, Joseph's unwelcome final assignment in the feral American landscape is further complicated, when the widowed settler, Rosalie Quaid, is taken in by the band of soldiers, as aggressive packs of marauding Comanches who are still on the warpath, are thirsty for blood.
Feb 28, 2018. Film Review 'Lowlife'. The time is certainly right — in fact, it couldn't be more overdue — for a drama that digs into the brave new world of college in the age of identity politics, micro-aggressions, and campus sex codes. Yes, that world is no longer so new, but it would be hard to name one good movie that. The first two scenes of Hostiles, Scott Cooper’s harsh and uncompromising western, depict a familiar cycle of cruelty. In the first, a white family living deep in New Mexico Territory are attacked by a Comanche war party, with only the mother, Rosalie (Rosamund Pike), surviving. In the second, the hard-faced Captain Joseph Blocker (Christian Bale) rounds up an Apache family and drags them to an American fort, where other Native Americans have been imprisoned for years without trial. Both sequences are gory, tough to watch, and short on dialogue, with Cooper intent on showing a world severely lacking in empathy. Hostiles is a classic revisionist western, stripping away the traditional notions of good guys and bad guys on the American frontier and instead digging into the poisonous effect of decades of colonial warfare against the continent’s indigenous peoples. But though the film seeks to avoid many of the genre’s cliches, it nonetheless ends up slipping into some well-worn and dull dynamics of noble Indians teaching important lessons to their American occupiers. And since this is a movie directed by Scott Cooper (Black Mass, Crazy Heart, Out of the Furnace), the best way for everyone to learn those lessons is through scenes of gritty violence. The film is set in 1892, and Blocker is a veteran of America’s ongoing wars in the newly settled West.
Reel Film Reviews. 4/5, A Quiet Place, "This may be a sci-fi fantasy about giant man-eating bugs, but it's grounded in human facts and folly. Little here is safe. Nothing is predictable." Posted Apr 3, 2018 AM UTC. Stephen Whitty · New York Daily News. 4/5, Thoroughbreds, "Remember the name Corey Finley. Throughout the history of its cinematic universe, Marvel Studios has excelled at creating engaging, entertaining diversions, bringing dozens of characters to life in a string of blockbusters that feed into one another, like a cinematic perpetual-motion machine. What it hasn’t done is make movies that feel glanced upon the idea of selling out privacy and freedom in the name of security. But more often than not, the studio’s films are primarily concerned with keeping all the narrative plates spinning on the long march toward the Thanos showdown that will finally start in is different. Not only is it a long-overdue embrace of diversity and representation, it’s a film that actually has something to say — and it’s able to do so without stepping away from the superhero dynamics that make the larger franchise work. It’s gripping, funny, and full of spectacle, but it also feels like a turning point, one where the studio has finally recognized that its movies can be about more than just selling the next installment. In the process, the studio has ended up with one of the most enthralling entries in its entire universe. , where audiences were first introduced to Chadwick Boseman’s Prince T’Challa and his superhero alter ego Black Panther. In the wake of his father’s death, T’Challa returns home to the country of Wakanda, where he will take his father’s place as king. It’s an incredibly advanced country filled with fantastic technological wizardry, but those advancements come courtesy of vibranium, a rare ore found almost exclusively in Wakanda.
The simple setup of this teen-centric comedy, directed by Kay Cannon, yields clever and hearty complications. Three suburban girls—friends since first grade, now high-school seniors—make a pact to Read More. IFC Center, March 30-31, and streaming. Set in a dilapidated Veterans Administration hospital, Article 99 may be the first medical melodrama that isn’t about dedicated physicians performing life-saving acts of valor. It’s about dedicated physicians not performing life- saving acts of valor: Their hands are tied by the crisis in veterans’ health care — the calamitous lack of funding, the red tape, the increasingly prevalent policy of refusing to cover conditions (such as heart problems) that aren’t directly related to military service. To function as doctors, the movie’s heroes have to become outlaws in their own hospital. Chief among the rebel healers is Leonard Sturgess (Ray Liotta), a crusading surgeon who’s an old hand at stealing supplies and forging documents. Kiefer Sutherland is the new kid on the block, a cautious yuppie intern who forms a sentimental attachment to an aging patient (Eli Wallach). With its crew of surgical hotshots issuing directives in hipster slang (”All quiet on the Western front — let’s zap him! Yet the movie, which has a live-wire surface energy and an urgent performance by Liotta, is a shallow, tabloid expose. The hospital here is a cartoon of bureaucratic inefficiency: It’s so badly run that the patients seem lucky if they can get an aspirin. I don’t mean to trivialize the crisis in veterans’ health care — it’s an outrage that has dragged on for years — but is more interested in tapping our collective adolescent self-righteousness than it is in showing us how a veterans’ hospital actually functions (or doesn’t function).

He relative lack of films directed by women in the 2017 Cannes line-up may not come as a huge surprise; the world’s most prestigious film festival has only ever awarded its top prize, the Palme d’Or, to one woman – Jane Campion for The Piano way back in 1993. Luckily, there’s a whole world of filmmaking outside of the male auteur-dominated festival circuit. From the return of Sofia Coppola to exciting newcomers such as Hope Dickson Leach, we’ve collected 25 upcoming works by female directors to look out for. The 2014 Somerset floods act as metaphorically rich backdrop for a woman returning to her farming family after the death of her brother. This is Hope Dickson Leach’s debut feature following her acclaimed shorts The Dawn Chorus and Morning Echo. Five old friends (played by Scarlett Johansson, Kate Mc Kinnon, Jillian Bell, Ilana Glazer, and Zoë Kravitz) reunite after 10 years for a wild party – and accidentally kill a male stripper. It would take a very special director to make a comedy out of a plot revolving around a dead sex worker, but considering Lucia Aniello earned her comedy chops directing episodes of Broad City, it might just work. Okay, so we weren’t exactly blown away by Amma Asante’s last film, A United Kingdom, but we’re still confident that she is a director who can deliver the goods.

"All in all, if you're a fan of David Lynch's more bizarre and atmosphere-driven works... and perhaps early David Cronenberg or just experimental film in general, I think you'll find How the Sky Will Melt interesting and thought-provoking." Posted Apr 4, 2018 PM UTC "[Yahya] Abdul-Mateen ll is excellent in the role of this self-serving, ill-equipped parent, but this movie belongs to [Elvire] Emanuelle, who is clearly a star in the making." Posted Apr 4, 2018 PM UTC "A tart, sharp, life-affirming dramedy, one that is slightly more edgy and far less predictable than it probably has any right to be. Celia Imrie and Imelda Staunton are magnificent." Posted Apr 4, 2018 PM UTC "It's a scorchingly polemic work that's also hilarious, tender and thoughtful, part of a scifi tradition that warns us about who we let have the power to re-configure the world." Posted Apr 4, 2018 PM UTC "It's one thing to say that the companies will sell us stuff we don't need to own us. It's far more powerful to portray it with humor and clever visuals. Worry Free does explicitly what real corporations do in secret."

The new series will be separate from the main episodic Skywalker saga that started with “Star Wars: A New Hope” and is slated to wrap up with 2019’s “Star Wars: Episode IX.” It will also exist independently from a Rian Johnson-helmed series that was announced last year. Weiss are going to write and produce a new series of “Star Wars” films, Disney announced on Tuesday. “David and Dan are some of the best storytellers working today,” said Kathleen Kennedy, president of Lucasfilm, in a statement. “Their command of complex characters, depth of story and richness of mythology will break new ground and boldly push Star Wars in ways I find incredibly exciting.” It also comes at a time of transition for Benioff and Weiss. Benioff and Weiss previously announced that they were developing another series for HBO called “Confederate.” However, that show generated a great deal of controversy over its plotline — it’s an alternate history series that imagines that the American Civil war ended in a stalemate and slavery remains legal — which some deemed insensitive. “Game of Thrones,” their sprawling fantasy epic, will end its run on HBO in 2019. HBO declined to comment on the future of that series.
Movie Reviews and Ratings by Film Critic Roger Ebert Roger Ebert. The marriage of a possession-driven horror film and a wedding comedy initially seems like an odd, opposites-attract union, especially when you add elements of the enduring legacy of the Holocaust in Poland. Theoretically, combining these elements shouldn’t work, leaving the audience in a state of whiplash as they’re thrown from one end of the genre spectrum to the other. But thanks to the talent of director Marcin Wrona, “Demon” combines these seemingly disparate threads to create an unsettling, oddly funny film with more to say than either the average horror film or comedy. Loosely based on Piotr Rowicki’s play “Adherence,” “Demon” quickly moves outside the confines of a stage production. It begins by traveling in a small town in Poland, where buildings and the bright yellow of a front loader are vivid against a backdrop of fog, the first evidence of the film’s fine cinematography from Pawel Flis. Piotr (Itay Tiran), called “Python” by his friends, comes from England to a small Polish island to meet his bride, Zaneta (Agnieszka Zulewska). They will be living in her family’s home, a country house that’s stood for decades and is now crumbling and in need of renovation. A front loader sits on the property, and some digging quickly unearths bones buried close to the house.
