Beauty and the Beast

The virtue of courage is high up on the list of Disney princess must-haves. So three cheers for Dreamgirls director Bill Condon and star Emma Watson for having the courage to make a live-action musical adaptation of Disney's adored Beauty and the Beast with 2017 gender politics and a diverse cast.

It's Only the End of the World

At what point do we stop referring to prolific Quebecois director-writer-actor Xavier Dolan as a wunderkind? He's still only 27, but with six feature films under his belt, he already feels like a veteran. His latest, It's Only the End of the World, is unfortunately his worst by a wide margin, talky and unsatisfying.

The Last Face

You begin to suspect The Last Face might be bad when the muddled intro text links the suffering of Liberia and South Sudan with a "common romance."

Kong: Skull Island

Kong: Skull Island

It’s 1973 and his character, a government-funded conspiracy nut, is talking about weather-shrouded Skull Island, deep in the South Pacific and only recently discovered by satellite.

American Pastoral

American Pastoral

“That's how we know we're alive—we're wrong,” a character observes in Philip Roth’s 1997 Pulitzer-winning novel American Pastoral. Based on that piece of insight, actor-turned-director Ewan McGregor’s movie version is very much alive.

Logan

It’s 2029 and mutants have been all but wiped out thanks to a combination of shady government interference and Charles's own inability to control his powers. But when Logan is tasked with looking after young Laura (Dafne Keen), the first mutant child born in decades, he's forced to make a decision: Stay in relative hiding, or gear up for one final stand?

The Space Between Us

Forget Matt Damon and his shitty potatoes: the latest Martian castaway aching for Earth is a lanky teenage oddball played by British actor Asa Butterfield (Hugo) in this good-natured but crushingly bland romantic melodrama.

Hidden Figures

Hidden Figures

As inspiring as rockets’ red glare heading into space, this huge-hearted crowd-pleaser has a sophisticated idea running through it: By and large, busy scientists don’t have time for racism or sexism.

Elle

Elle

Adapted by David Birke from the novel by Philippe Djian, Elle has an ace up its sleeve in the form of Isabelle Huppert, who gives a fierce performance as Michele, a video-game–company founder living in Paris. Those midcoital moans we heard? Michele is being raped in her living room by a ski-masked assailant.

The Salesman

The Iranian writer-director Asghar Farhadi won an Oscar for 2011's A Separation. After making 2013's The Past in Paris, he returns to Tehran for this charged, intelligent but not entirely satisfying drama about a youngish couple, Rana (Taraneh Alidoosti) and Emad (Shahab Hosseini).
