New movie reviews: Critics' picks

Hiroshima Mon Amour

  • Rated as: 5/5

Visually, the movie is almost preternaturally perfect

Nightcrawler

  • Rated as: 5/5

Writer-director Dan Gilroy's supercharged Nightcrawler is a viciously funny film

Rome, Open City

  • Rated as: 5/5

Much is devastating—but Roberto Rossellini finds room for the humor and warmth of everyday life

Citizenfour

  • Rated as: 4/5

Even if you know Edward Snowden’s story, it’s doubly striking when heard here, straight from the horse’s mouth

Birdman

  • Rated as: 5/5

Savagely funny, strangely sweet, sad and utterly brilliant

Dear White People

  • Rated as: 4/5

A title like that needs balls of brass to back it up

Listen Up Philip

  • Rated as: 4/5

A subtly riotous comedy—a smart, anachronistic takedown of ego

Whiplash

  • Rated as: 4/5

Part of the joy of watching dramas like this must be a masochistic thrill in seeing young punks suffer

New movie releases

Before I Go to Sleep

  • Rated as: 3/5

As a thriller, it's perfectly effective, but Nicole Kidman’s blank, frosty performance is unconvincing

Horns

  • Rated as: 3/5

This patchy supernatural black comedy is Daniel Radcliffe's least successful shot at putting distance between himself and the boy wizard

Happy New Year

  • Rated as: 3/5

Bollywood’s big Diwali release is an unashamedly overblown piece of mindless entertainment

John Wick

  • Rated as: 3/5

John Wick feels like action manna for its cleanly designed gun-fu sequences and brutal takedowns

Ouija

  • Rated as: 2/5

What’s left for the dead to say? Not much, it turns out

The Best of Me

  • Rated as: 3/5

The latest three-hanky slushfest from the pen of Nicholas Sparks is everything you feared and hoped it would be

Fury

  • Rated as: 3/5

Brad Pitt pulls along this gutsy, old-fashioned WWII epic by the sheer brute force of his charisma

St. Vincent

  • Rated as: 3/5

Why not just call it St. Bill and get it over with?
