The Most Hated Woman in America

“My mother pissed off a lot of people, especially those she was close to.” There’s an undeniable wealth of storytelling to be culled from the life of Madalyn Murray O’Hair, a talk show regular and fighter for religious freedom who was kidnapped in the ‘90s and held for ransom. Show More Summary

Dig Two Graves

In a way, it makes sense that “Dig Two Graves” takes place mostly in 1977. Granted, it isn’t specifically tied to that date—people aren’t seen going to “Star Wars” while listening to Pink Floyd’s “Animals” and talking about the previous...Show More Summary

I Called Him Morgan

The jazz trumpeter Lee Morgan made exuberant music. Sufficiently exuberant and catchy that he achieved that rarity, getting a post-bop tune on the pop charts at the near-height of U.S. Beatlemania. The 1964 tune was called “The Sidewinder”...Show More Summary

Prevenge

The makers of "Prevenge," a British horror-comedy about an expectant mother whose unborn child encourages her to go on a killing spree, only pick the softest targets: ugly caricatures of insensitive adults who have written off single mother Ruth (writer/director Alice Lowe) simply because she's eight months pregnant. Show More Summary

Bokeh

Like the recent Chris Pratt/Jennifer Lawrence vehicle “Passengers” sans its giant spaceship or mortifying ethics, “Bokeh” takes that romantic sensation of feeling like the only two people in the world and challenges it with a literal interpretation. Show More Summary

American Anarchist

Charlie Siskel’s “American Anarchist” is an intriguing film about an infuriating man. Like Errol Morris’ “The Fog of War,” the documentary centers on an individual who essentially launched a weapon of mass destruction and had to live with the consequences. Show More Summary

Life

Life doesn't commit enough to its scares or set pieces to truly excel, but its gung-ho cast, tight plotting, slick visuals, and gripping conclusion mean it's entertaining, just not memorable.

CHIPS

Throughout the film, it's hard to pin down the exact intention of what's coming across, and save for a few bright spots, it culminates as a mess.

Wilson

Wilson is glaringly uneven, but when Woody Harrelson is in such commanding form, you're willing to forgive, forget, and just enjoy being in his presence.
