New movie reviews: Critics' picks

Level Five

  • Rated as: 5/5
  • Critics choice

Celebrating the work of France’s one-of-a-kind cine-diarist Chris Marker, BAM highlights the director’s 1997 curiosity, a heady swirl of computer games, WWII history and thoughtful sci-fi.

The Trip to Italy

  • Rated as: 4/5
  • Critics choice

If you want dueling Michael Caine impressions, Steve Coogan and Rob Brydon are back, in an enjoyably tart-tongued sequel to 2010’s The Trip that ups the middle-age malaise.

Abuse of Weakness

  • Rated as: 4/5
  • Critics choice

French provocateur Catherine Breillat delves into her own history with a scam artist in her difficult but rewarding latest.

Jealousy

  • Rated as: 4/5
  • Critics choice

An actor wrecks his family’s stasis with an affair in Philippe Garrel’s domestic drama, a b&w mood piece in which the title emotion flows freely.

Dinosaur 13

  • Rated as: 4/5
  • Critics choice

The discovery of a nearly complete Tyrannosaurus rex is only the beginning: This unusually tragic legal drama unpacks the interests of testy parties jockeying for ownership.

Moebius

  • Rated as: 4/5
  • Critics choice

Not a word is spoken in this brutal black comedy that features a vengeful wife turning the sin of her wayward husband on their teenage son. Dark, violent, unforgettable.

The Dog

  • Rated as: 4/5
  • Critics choice

The full story of real-life bungling bank robber John Wojtowicz makes for a compelling documentary sequel to Dog Day Afternoon.

Fifi Howls From Happiness

  • Rated as: 5/5
  • Critics choice

A stunningly multifaceted documentary follows an alternately infuriating and infectious artist in exile.

New movie releases

The Expendables 3

  • Rated as: 2/5

This time, Sylvester Stallone and his band of pumped-up ’80s-era mercenaries are taking on the international arms trade.

Let's Be Cops

  • Rated as: 1/5

You’d think gun-happy police would have enough PR problems these days—now they must contend with lame August comedies.

Life After Beth

  • Rated as: 3/5

Aubrey Plaza’s deadpan stare, already a giveaway of ulterior motives (if not appetites), makes her perfect to play a zombie.

Frank

  • Rated as: 3/5

Dazzlingly strange art rock pours out of the title character, a singer who always wears an unblinking false head onstage.

Into the Storm

  • Rated as: 2/5

When badass cyclones muscle into town, the film can be fairly fun to watch, but everything else about it is a disaster.

What If

  • Rated as: 3/5

It’s easy to joke about Daniel Radcliffe, but we’ll all have to stop now, because Harry Potter is all grown-up—and he can act.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles

  • Rated as: 2/5

Utterly inessential, this cheap-looking reboot of the Turtles franchise is too tame even for the kids who make up the target audience.

The Hundred-Foot Journey

  • Rated as: 3/5

This middlebrow culture-clash foodie fable, barely reaches a low simmer. They should have jacked up the heat.
