Film review: 'Greta'

The real reason to see Neil Jordan’s new dark comedy is Isabelle Huppert’s deliciously looney performance. She’s fabulous enough that you start to think being the object of her obsessive attention might actually be pretty fantastic.

Film review: 'Everybody Knows'

The mysteries of "Everybody Knows" are ultimately fairly obvious, though the film takes its time revealing them. Director Farhadi is far more concerned with the effect the crime has on the relationships between his characters, as class and familial resentments begin to rear their heads.

Film review: 'Isn't It Romantic?'

This charming comedy pokes a bit of gentle fun at rom-coms while also functioning as an entirely earnest example of the genre it’s sending up. Which makes it perfect for viewers who have a love-hate relationship with those type of movies.

Film review: 'The LEGO Movie 2'

The sequel maintains the first film's central core of sweetness, and though it doesn't feel as effortless this time around, it manages to juggle a number of potent ideas beneath its bright and candy-colored exterior.

Film review: 'Cold War'

Set against the ruins of post-WWII Poland, the story revolves around a couple separated by political, geographical, and psychological divides. It examines the toll of a life in exile and the hardships of living under a totalitarian regime.
