King Arthur: Legend of the Sword

Guy Ritchie’s way-over-the-top, frenzied spin on the legend of King Arthur, with a leaden Charlie Hunnam as the streetwise monarch-to-be and a much more fun Jude Law as his preening evil uncle King Vortigern, offers wall-to-wall testosterone, digital effects, fights and supernatural freak-outs.

Song to Song

The world’s most impossibly gorgeous actors lounge through exclusive parts of Austin, Texas—high-end homes, sprawling bedrooms and roped-off concert VIP areas—in Song to Song, a movie so deeply in need of a plot, a clue, anything at all, that you’ll wish writer-director Terrence Malick was a bit more of a recluse.

The Zookeeper's Wife

The Zookeeper’s Wife is the moment when Chastain’s Streep gets the better of her. She goes full Sophie’s Choice as the Polish keeper of a Warsaw zoo during WWII.

Personal Shopper

An haute-couture clothes buyer and general gofer to an insufferable A-list celebrity (shades of Sils Maria, though Assayas is on a very different thematic path), practicing medium Maureen is haunted, in all senses, by the recent death of her twin brother.

Recommended

The Shack

Adapted from William P. Young’s 2007 bestseller, this 132-minute-long piece of moral exploitation follows Mack Phillips (Avatar’s Sam Worthington, objectionably serious in an especially gruff voice), an outdoorsy, church-going Midwesterner. He’s happily married to the wholesome Nan (Radha Mitchell) with three beautiful kids. But after a tragedy claims the life of his youngest daughter, Mack falls into depression and a deep crisis of faith, until a mysterious note appears in his mailbox, inviting him to the shack linked to his child’s murder.

Bitter Harvest

If you’ve ever thought to yourself ‘Making a film: how hard can it be?’, then watch this awkward and inauthentic romance, in which a solid cast of mostly British actors give shaky performances as Ukrainians (not speaking with heavy accents, small mercies). It’s set in the early 1930s, during the Holodomor (or ‘death by hunger’), when Stalin crushed the Ukrainian people with mass starvation that left millions dead. Max Irons plays a gifted young painter separated from his childhood sweetheart (Samantha Barks) after leaving the family farm to work in a factory in the capital Kiev. They play their parts earnestly as the movie lumbers on, but this forgotten chapter of history deserves to be better told.
