New movie reviews: Critics' picks

Locke

  • Rated as: 4/5
  • Critics choice

Unmuzzled by his Bane mask from The Dark Knight Rises, Tom Hardy carries an entire drama by himself, as a driver grappling with shifting moods and multiple calls.

Othello

  • Rated as: 5/5
  • Critics choice

This is one of the finest cinematic incarnations of William Shakespeare’s tragedy, starring a commanding Orson Welles (who also directed) as the Moor of Venice.

Fading Gigolo

  • Rated as: 4/5
  • Critics choice

The hook is Woody Allen as a pimp (har), but the real appeal here is John Turturro—writing, directing and acting in a romantic comedy that takes women’s needs seriously.

Manakamana

  • Rated as: 5/5
  • Critics choice

This sublime experimental documentary is comprised of gorgeous and probing one-shots of passengers traveling to a Nepalese temple via cable car. It’s a journey worth taking.

The Young Girls of Rochefort

  • Rated as: 5/5
  • Critics choice

Don’t miss the restored rerelease of this glorious Jacques Demy musical that includes Catherine Deneuve and Gene Kelly among its singing and dancing lovers.

Only Lovers Left Alive

  • Rated as: 5/5
  • Critics choice

Tilda Swinton and Tom Hiddleston star in a swoonworthy vampire movie from Jim Jarmusch that’s the epitome of cool.

Captain America: The Winter Soldier

  • Rated as: 4/5
  • Critics choice

Chris Evans continues to prove his worth, but the bigger surprise is how paranoid Marvel’s latest superhero movie is.

Under the Skin

  • Rated as: 5/5
  • Critics choice

This hypnotic stunner from Jonathan Glazer (Birth) shows off a dazzling complexity in Scarlett Johansson, playing an alien awakening to human contact.

Young & Beautiful

  • Rated as: 2/5

The teenage heroine of François Ozon’s seasonal French melodrama is very interested in pushing limits.

Blue Ruin

  • Rated as: 3/5

This can’t quite decide if it wants to be a full-throttle redneck revenge flick or something closer to Winter’s Bone.

The Girl and Death

  • Rated as: 3/5

There is indeed a girl (and death) in Jos Stelling’s lovely-looking, somewhat laborious 19th-century period melodrama.

For No Good Reason

  • Rated as: 2/5

When a documentary feels the urge to shout about its celebrity cast, could it be making up for shortcomings elsewhere?

Last Passenger

  • Rated as: 3/5

This low-budget, London-set thriller about a runaway train stays on the rails, thanks to strong performances.

Transcendence

  • Rated as: 2/5

Shouldn’t a future America ruled by a disembodied Johnny Depp be a lot zanier than this dull-as-computer-code thriller?

Proxy

  • Rated as: 3/5

An impressive level of tension is maintained through the first hour of this initially riveting, finally ludicrous thriller.

Joe

  • Rated as: 3/5

A moody, melancholic throwback to the regional dramas that first gained director David Gordon Green attention.
