Film Review: ‘Wonder’
Auggie Pullman (Jacob Tremblay), the central character in Stephen Chbosky’s “Wonder,” is a brainy 10-year-old boy with a sweet high voice and a congenital facial deformity, whom numerous corrective surgeries have left looking like a cherub after a car accident. His left eye tugs downward as if a teardrop were falling from it; his ears […]

‘Band’s Visit’ shines with Tony Shalhoub and Katrina Lenk: review
“The Band’s Visit” takes place in the desert and, like a mirage, it shimmers. But better. It’s real. And really beautiful.

Film Review: ‘Amanda & Jack Go Glamping’
It was London everywoman Bridget Jones, in her most recent screen outing, who skeptically gave us cinema’s definitive verdict on “glamping,” that irksome term for upmarket camping in a fixed, fashionably furnished tent: “Calling him Gladolf Hitler,” she opined, “wouldn’t suddenly make us forget all the unpleasantness.” It’s not a view that is challenged, nor […]

Film Review: ‘Bad Match’
It’s a sign of how little most movies channel contemporary experience that the manners and habits and attitudes of the age of Tinder have remained a relatively off-screen topic. This past January, the Sundance drama “Newness,” directed by Drake Doremus (it has yet to be released), was a designer soap opera that had a few […]

Film Review: ‘A Gray State’
Anyone who engages in online public discourse these days, even on the most mainstream news sites, has become accustomed to an ever-growing trend: People introducing conspiracy theories as if they were agreed-upon fact. The end of the Obama presidency has done nothing to soften the absolute certainty of many that he was “born in Kenya,” […]

TV Review: ‘Damnation’ on USA
The second episode of “Damnation” pivots on a striking scene: A group of shabby farmers walk into a small Iowa town, carrying handmade signs and chanting slogans. The signs demand unity, a living wage, a compassionate economy: “UNITED WE STAND,” “GROW YOUR OWN FOOD,” “WE NEED FAIR PRICES.” It’s a showstopping set piece, set to […]

Broadway Review: Ayad Akhtar’s ‘Junk’
Maybe, someday, we can live down the 1980s. But not any day soon, if Ayad Akhtar has anything to do with it. The Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright (“Disgraced”) returns with poisoned pen and sharpened knives to that era of wretched excess in “Junk,” a rehash of the inside trading, hostile takeovers, junk bond sales, and other […]

Tokyo Film Review: ‘Someone From Nowhere’
An injured man turns up in a woman’s apartment and claims he’s its real owner in “Someone from Nowhere,” a gripping existential psychodrama by multitalented Thai filmmaker Prabda Yoon. In a stylistic backflip from his flashy, trashy and occasionally inspired debut feature “Motel Mist,” Yoon delivers a precision-tooled two-hander that begins as a home invasion […]

Film Review: ‘Frank Serpico’
“Frank Serpico” is a finely etched and fascinating documentary. Directed by Antonino D’Ambrosio, it’s a portrait of the legendary Brooklyn-born Italian-American cop who blew the whistle on New York police corruption in the late ’60s and early ’70s — and, of course, it’s a movie you can hardly watch without comparing it to “Serpico,” the […]

Some prisoners go out of their minds when confined to the 23-hour isolation wing of Rikers Island prison. In the Signature Theater revival of Stephen Adly Guirgis’ “Jesus Hopped the A Train,” Angel Cruz, played in a painfully sensitive performance by Sean Carvajal, tries his best to pray. But the words escape him, and his […]

Toronto Film Review: Dark Is the Night
The casualties of being guilty before proven innocent come across loud and clear in “Dark Is the Night,” veteran independent filmmaker Adolfo Alix Jr.’s condemnation of Philippines President Rodrigo Duterte’s war on drugs. Initially predictable, showing nothing that the news hasn’t already reported, the film gains credibility as it demonstrates how drugs permeate ordinary lives in the […]

‘Star Trek: Discovery’ Review: ‘Lethe’ Keeps the Series in the Trenches
This week on Star Trek: Discovery, we got back into Vulcan territory with “Lethe.” Michael (and Tilly and Ash) had to save a stranded Sarek in a remote nebula, thanks to a “logic extremist” (read: Vulcan terrorist) who was against Sarek’s love for humanity. We got some much-needed backstory on Michael and Sarek’s relationship, but […]
