Nas: Time Is Illmatic

  • Rated as: 4/5
  • Critics choice

Springing out of Queens and some unconventional parenting, Nasir bin Olu Dara Jones became the rapper Nas and released Illmatic in 1994 at age 20. This is that story.

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 suspense.

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.

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

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.

New movie releases

Men, Women & Children

  • Rated as: 2/5

Ominous and panicky, it's the first Jason Reitman film to make the 36-year-old director seem about 400 years old.

The Good Lie

  • Rated as: 3/5

Thankfully, it's not The Blind Side Goes to the Dark Continent, but a years-spanning tale of Sudanese refugees.

The Blue Room

  • Rated as: 3/5

The pieces are more intriguing than the whole picture in Mathieu Amalric’s jaggedly alluring murder thriller.

The Decent One

  • Rated as: 3/5

Irony alert: There’s nothing decent about the doc's subject: Heinrich Himmler, one of the Nazi regime’s unapologetic architects.

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.

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.

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.
