Out of the Past

The rosy-hued vision we often have of that always-intangible past is a fitting subject for Woody Allen, a director with a large segment of fans who pine for the kind of movies he made during his own vaguely defined “golden age.” His new picture, Midnight in Paris, is about a man with a similarly frustrated relationship with the present, and despite its handful of problems, it ranks among his most easily...

This will one day be recognized as “patient zero” in the disease pandemic known as “cinematic superhero fatigue.” In honor of its dogged devotion to a yawn-inspiring storytelling formula, here’s an algorithm: Four writers (Greg Berlanti, Michael Green, Marc Guggenheim and Michael Goldenberg) minus one original idea, plus one...

The Look of Silence

A companion piece to The Act of Killing, this makes a one-two punch as good as any documentary in history.


The Visit

A middling found footage horror-comedy that counts as a triumph for this director.


The Stanford Prison Experiment

A recreation of the actual experiment that chills but has little new to say.

On DVD: Mad Max: Fury Road

It's basically "Smash the Patriarchy: The Movie" with really awesome cars.


No Escape

Don't go to Malaysia. You'll probably die.
