Beloved Sisters

The kind of finely etched family drama that fans of Downton Abbey will flip for, Dominik Graf’s gripping German saga turns an 18th-century ménage à trois into a psychological feast.

The Interview

A compelling and genuinely radical feature, Seth Rogen's comedy fashions The Great Dictator and Inglourious Basterds into a cross joint and then lights it from both ends.

Selma

Ava DuVernay’s masterfully controlled portrait of the fight for civil rights would be a landmark even without the timeliness of its story or the urgency of its unassailable values.

Two Days, One Night

A star like Marion Cotillard might seem like an odd fit for the Dardenne brothers’ brand of social realism, but this story of a woman campaigning to keep her job is as honest as it gets.

Game of Thrones is coming to IMAX

How huge is Game of Thrones? Huge enough to merit a gargantuan screen, bigger than your wall-spanning flat screen. Yesterday came the news that the makers of the beloved HBO series are booking 150 IMAX theaters nationwide in advance of the April premiere of the fifth season. The one-week theatrical engagement starts January 23. At these screenings, you'll be able to re-experience the final two episodes from the prior season (including the action-packed Neil Marshall-directed "The Watchers on the Wall), as well as take an exclusive taste of the upcoming run. Tickets and specific locations aren't available yet—"in the coming days" is what we've heard—so we suggest checking in at this Fandango link for updates. The significance of an IMAX engagement for a TV program (the first ever) is yet to be determined, but Game of Thrones certainly lends itself to the experiment. The canvas is epic and violent, and we'll have a hard time passing up the opportunity to hear that awesome theme song blaring out at us in Surround Sound.

Inherent Vice-inspired art at Ace Hotel

Paul Thomas Anderson's Inherent Vice has been widely described as the ultimate stoner noir, but that (accurate) summation doesn't do justice to how the movie doubles as a time machine. The first big-screen adaptation of a Thomas Pynchon novel and one of our favorite movies of 2014, Inherent Vice so completely transports you back to the doped-up patchouli bonfire that was Gordita Beach, California, circa 1970, that it doesn't even matter that Gordita Beach isn't a real place. So it makes a certain kind of sense that Warner Bros., the studio distributing Inherent Vice, has found a way to keep the high going beyond the movie theater—without the risk of a cop kicking down your door. Starting tonight and running through January 11, Ace Hotel will be hosting an immersive gallery exhibition that celebrates the unique flavor of PTA's film. Hosted at the hotel's Liberty Hall and put together by artists Jonah Freeman and Justin Lowe, the show is set to feature a variety of vintage and found objects (bongs?), ephemera (bongs?), art (drawings of bongs?) and props (bongs). The mind reels trying to imagine the kind of things this movie might inspire them to put on display, but the sample they've shown promises that they'll be no shortage of sights to see. There's no word yet on snacks, but we've got our fingers crossed for some chocolate-covered bananas. And just to sweeten the pot, anyone who books a room at the hotel between now and Sunday will receive a limited edition vinyl of Jonny

The 20 most pirated movies of 2014 prove that teen boys still run Hollywood

Every year it grows just a little bit clearer that box office grosses aren't telling the whole story when it comes to measuring the audience that a film has found. Studios still don't bother to share the receipts tallied from VOD and iTunes sales. Moreover, piracy—now a more troubling and more tolerated problem than ever before—accounts for an ever-increasing percentage of how a film is seen. Variety is reporting the most-pirated titles of 2014 as well as the number of times they've been downloaded, and the totals are staggering (for a less-troubling list, check out our rundown of the 20 best films of 2014). While the obvious takeaway is that a whole bunch of people are down to watch movies for free if it's simple enough to do so, the list offers plenty of insight into the current nature of Hollywood's connection with its consumers.  In a list that's invariably packed with franchise blockbusters, it's somewhat surprising that Martin Scorsese's The Wolf of Wall Street took the No. 1 spot, registering more than 30 million downloads. That a hedonistic epic about sex, drugs and money tops a collection of movies that is otherwise dominated by superhero stuff like Captain America: The Winter Soldier and X-Men: Days of Future Past reaffirms the idea that Hollywood is run by the appetites of teenage boys who can't buy tickets to anything rated R (though if they continue to steal movies instead of paying for them, that might not be the case for much longer). Having said that, the fa
