Crime and Punishment

Crime and Punishment

Alfre Woodard, Aldis Hodge, Richard Schiff and the rest of a very strong cast put on an acting workshop that is both impressive and important in Clemency, an unrelentingly brutal look at the death penalty. Director Chinonye Chukwu’s film takes equally powerful looks at the people being put to death, and those employed to administer the tools of execution.

Wet and Wild

Kristen Stewart goes into badass movie star mode in Underwater, a long-delayed and surprisingly decent deep sea horror/thriller from director William Eubank. While it stands to be the second big budget box office disaster in a row for Stewart after Charlie’s Angels, it deserves a better fate. The movie is actually pretty good.

Into the Trenches

1917 stands as a worthy and late addition to my Top 10 for 2019, which was published last week.

Little Wonder

Now comes the umpteenth adaptation of the classic Louisa May Alcott novel and it’s safe to say this one is in the running for best adaptation of the story, ever.

Grimm TIdings

We asked movie critic Bob Grimm to share his favorite movies from 2019—and to balance things out, he also shared notes on the worst movies he saw. (Why Avengers: Endgame didn’t end up in the No. 1 spot is mystifying, but he’s entitled to his opinion, even if he’s wrong.)

A Spent Force

Star Wars: The Rise of skywalker is a disastrous, soulless squandering of the goodwill built up by The Force Awakens and The Last Jedi.

Movies coming to your local indie theaters.

Striking It Rich

With Uncut Gems, Adam Sandler joins forces with directors Benny and Josh Safdie (makers of the excellent Robert Pattinson vehicle Good Times) and delivers the kind of dramatic performance (that being fully committed and thoroughly proficient) that he’s hinted at in the past with strong efforts in Punch-Drunk Love and The Meyerowitz Stories.

There's plenty of holiday movies going on.

Chemical Lawfare

The real-life horrors of the Parkersburg, West Virginia water crisis get a strong cinematic treatment from director Todd Haynes with Dark Waters, an earnest legal drama that spares us lengthy courtroom sequences in favor of in-depth looks at those affected on all sides of the case.

Here's the best indie and cult movies playing this week.

Split Personalities

Adam Driver and Scarlett Johansson are incredible in writer/director Noah Baumbach’s best movie yet, an alternately searing, touching and hilarious look at a marriage’s end times.
