New movie reviews: Critics' picks

Godzilla

  • Rated as: 4/5
  • Critics choice

The granddaddy of Japanese monster movies returns in a 60th-anniversary restoration that will knock you back like its title character’s nuclear breath.

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.

Nymphomaniac: Volume II

  • Rated as: 4/5
  • Critics choice

Lars von Trier’s saga continues: weirder, rougher and deeper into scary psychosexual terrain (a place where Charlotte Gainsbourg excels).

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.

Cuban Fury

  • Rated as: 3/5

Nick Frost and Rashida Jones play salsa-mad coworkers in a film that's cute in concept, but short on clear punch lines.

Rio 2

  • Rated as: 3/5

Though a touch calculated, this sequel's characterizations are feisty, its song-and-dance sequences intricate.

Perfect Sisters

  • Rated as: 3/5

Give credit to director Stan Brooks for allowing his two former child stars some real meat to sink their chops into.

Oculus

  • Rated as: 3/5

Mirror, mirror on the wall, who’s the deadest of them all? That’s the sort of rhetorical query facing siblings Kaylie (Karen Gillan) and Tim (Brenton Thwaites), who reunite after a decade to take

Dom Hemingway

  • Rated as: 2/5

There are only so many scenes anyone can take of Jude Law (still not suited to middle age) strutting down the street shooting his mouth off.

Alan Partridge

  • Rated as: 3/5

If you had sky-high hopes for the big-screen outing of Alan Partridge, Steve Coogan’s smarmy chat-show journalist, now’s the time to moderate them.
