The Little launches ‘Virtual Little’ streaming and YouTube channel

CITY’s Adam Lubitow previews “And Then We Danced,” the first of The Virtual Little’s films to stream.

A very bland adventure

"Wendy" never entirely earns the emotions at its core, leeching any resonance it does have through whatever attachment the viewer might have to the original "Peter Pan" story.

Film preview: 'Greed'

British filmmaker Michael Winterbottom re-teams with comedian Steve Coogan for “Greed,” a barbed but frequently uneven comedy taking aim at the fast fashion industry.

Burning desire

Anchored by two exquisite performances from Noémie Merlant and Adèle Haenel, "Portrait of a Lady on Fire" is a simmering love story about desire, the female gaze, and the enduring beauty of art.

Whisper to a scream

It’s impossible not to think of Harvey Weinstein while watching “The Assistant.” Though the disgraced movie mogul never appears on screen, nor is he mentioned by name, his presence haunts Kitty Green’s piercing look at systemic abuses of power in the workplace.

Hazardous terrain ahead

As is often the case with English-language remakes, “Downhill” ends up smoothing out the rough edges of the source material, removing some of the potent ambiguity at the heart of the original’s examination of masculinity, family dynamics, and gender roles.

Film preview: 'Color Out of Space'

An adaptation of an H.P. Lovecraft short story, “Color Out of Space” centers on the Gardner family, who’ve recently relocated from the city to a remote farmhouse in rural Massachusetts. With its mix of straight-up horror, gooey makeup effects, and performances that dance along the edges of camp, the film is the platonic ideal of a midnight movie.
