New movie reviews: Critics' picks

20,000 Days on Earth

  • Rated as: 5/5
  • Critics choice

Who exactly is rock star Nick Cave? You’ll get the facts but also something stranger and more compelling in this day-in-the-life profile.

The Guest

  • Rated as: 4/5
  • Critics choice

With Downton Abbey behind him, actor Dan Stevens swaps high-born domestic drama for an electrifying John Carpenter–esque thriller. We love the career change-up.

Stray Dogs

  • Rated as: 4/5
  • Critics choice

From greatest-hits package to pure greatness: Taiwan’s Tsai Ming-liang returns to familiar territory, or so it initially seems.

Last Days In Vietnam

  • Rated as: 4/5
  • Critics choice

The endgame to the Vietnam War, tinged with guilt and panic, is well explored in Rory Kennedy’s tense documentary, which sifts through the chaotic mess left behind in Saigon.

The Congress

  • Rated as: 4/5
  • Critics choice

Robin Wright plays herself (in both human and animated form) in this thrillingly ambitious fantasy from Waltz with Bashir director Ari Folman.

The Conformist

  • Rated as: 5/5
  • Critics choice

Bernardo Bertolucci's achingly perfect bold stroke predicted the entire inward sweep of the 1970s.

Love Is Strange

  • Rated as: 5/5
  • Critics choice

Playing a longtime New York couple suddenly without a home, Alfred Molina and John Lithgow commit to one of the year’s best dramas, a story of ill-fated unraveling.

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.

New movie releases

No Good Deed

  • Rated as: 2/5

This predictable home-invasion drama could have benefitted from a few more viewings of David Fincher's Panic Room.

Tusk

  • Rated as: 3/5

One imagines the scariest thing to Kevin Smith would be the inability to speak—and that's what he explores in this bizarre horror-comedy.

The Zero Theorem

  • Rated as: 3/5

The stars still come out for the director of Brazil, including a totally bald Christoph Waltz, playing an IT drone who’s lost his soul.

A Walk Among the Tombstones

  • Rated as: 2/5

Well-paced and fairly watchable, but shouldn’t Liam Neeson be making better movies than this dour, exploitative crime story?

Hector and the Search for Happiness

  • Rated as: 2/5

Simon Pegg plays the world’s most unconvincing psychiatrist in this fluffy, irritating Brit comedy.

This Is Where I Leave You

  • Rated as: 1/5

Probably the biggest sin in a movie filled with many is turning Jane Fonda into a nymphomaniacal sight gag.

The Drop

  • Rated as: 3/5

A dingy-looking Brooklyn crime drama features fine work from Tom Hardy and the late James Gandolfini, but putters along dozily.

The Skeleton Twins

  • Rated as: 3/5

Two ex–TV stars get a pair of roles that allow them to stretch into unexplored dramatic territory.
