Danny Collins Poster

Danny Collins

Review by Matt Zoller Seitz

"Danny Collins," starring Al Pacino as an old pop singer trying rediscover meaning and purpose in life, is an appealing comedy with a streak of melodrama, and a great lead performance.

Spring Poster

Spring

Review by Simon Abrams

The film sacrifices its charming sense of immediacy and warmth, and becomes far more blunt and convoluted than it needs to be.

The Gunman Poster

The Gunman

Review by Peter Sobczynski

The kind of throughly anonymous and undistinguished film that barely would have passed muster as a mid-2000s DTV project top-lining a third-tier TV star.

Accidental Love Poster

Accidental Love

Review by Susan Wloszczyna

Do You Believe? Poster

Do You Believe?

Review by Peter Sobczynski

While it may not be as convulsively awful as its predecessor, it is certainly a more schizophrenic moviegoing experience

Backcountry Poster

Backcountry

Review by Glenn Kenny

It's all pretty effective but in the end, somehow empty.

Insurgent Poster

Insurgent

Review by Susan Wloszczyna

Shailene Woodley almost singlehandedly saves these films from being just another overwrought dystopian nightmare.

Kumiko, the Treasure Hunter Poster

Kumiko, the Treasure Hunter

Review by Glenn Kenny

It plays out as a deliberate, somber character study that semi-eerily morphs into comedy of middle-American manners and then into something else again.

Amour fou Poster

Amour fou

Review by Scout Tafoya
