Let the Right One In

Critics' pick

Let the Right One In: Theater review by David Cote This stage version of the 2004 Swedish horror novel and screenplay (both by John Ajvide Lindqvist) pulls off three rarities in the theater: presenting vampires as fully believable (not laughable) monsters, casting adult actors as plausible teens and scaring the bejesus out of an audience.

Dropkick Murphys + The Mahones + Blood or Whiskey

Critics' pick

Boston's Dropkick Murphys play a besotted blend of lunkheaded but stirring Irish-influenced pub rock, as on their 2013 disc, Signed and Sealed in Blood. Live, they're a riot (sometimes quite literally).

Wild Canaries

A contemporary Cobble Hill riff on Manhattan Murder Mystery, Lawrence Michael Levine’s Wild Canaries may fly along a familiar path, but it’s sexier, smarter and a hell of a lot more fun.

Queen and Country

A direct sequel to 1987’s Hope and Glory—and the best thing that John Boorman has made since—Queen and Country begins where that film leaves off, continuing the director’s autobiographical account of his relationship with war and the collateral effect it has on the people at its periphery.

Wild Tales

Comedy seldom travels well from one culture to another, but to judge from the first episode of this engaging if uneven satire highlighting humanity's more basic instincts, it's clear that young Argentine writer-director Damián Szifron has a knack for latching on to ideas with a humorous dimension that's pretty universal.

What have you done with this feature? It used to be a readable roundup. Now it's just an assortment of links that I have to open in a million different tabs. As someone who refers to these weekend roundups quite a bit, I respectfully request that you bring back the old format.
