New movie reviews: Critics' picks

Love Is Strange

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.

To Be Takei

  • Rated as: 4/5
  • Critics choice

You know him as Star Trek’s Sulu—and one of Facebook’s finest practical jokers. But George Takei has an incredible life story, always toward a higher state of selfhood.

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

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.

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.
