New movie reviews: Critics' picks

Gone Girl

  • Rated as: 5/5
  • Critics choice

Transformed into the kind of wickedly confident Hollywood thriller you pray to see once in a decade, David Fincher's latest emerges as the stealthiest comedy since American Psycho.

The Two Faces of January

  • Rated as: 4/5
  • Critics choice

Viggo Mortensen, Kirsten Dunst and Inside Llewyn Davis’s Oscar Isaac star in a tourists-in-trouble scam story that will have you smiling at the virtues of old-school

Pride

  • Rated as: 5/5
  • Critics choice

In early-’80s Wales, gay activists and on-strike mine workers form a touching, unlikely alliance in this irrepressibly funny drama, thrumming with a spirit of kinship

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.

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.

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

Jimi: All Is by My Side

  • Rated as: 3/5

An admirable though unrelentingly gloomy and unauthorized chronicle of the great Jimi Hendrix.

The Boxtrolls

  • Rated as: 3/5

This digitally animated adventure from the producers of Coraline and ParaNorman is an ooky, spooky affair.

Lilting

  • Rated as: 3/5

A quiet, thoughtful London-set study of love, grief and cultural differences from a Cambodian-born filmmaker.

The Equalizer

  • Rated as: 1/5

There’s some sad math happening when Hollywood tries to equalize one of its sharpest leading men with generic action parts.

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?
