Matthew Robbins Old people and aliens partner to fight gentrification for the crowd-pleasing win! John Scheinfeld Those old and new to John Coltrane will find something to appreciate in this vivid, albeit effusive, tribute to the jazz legend.
Filmmaker John Scheinfeld dips in and out of the music—too much so, it turns out, and with too little insight into the specifics of his gifts.
Still, the overarching salvation Trane found in music resonates with such joy. Martin Luther King Jr. Cornel West describes Coltrane as a thermostat, not a thermometer, of the times, an instrument personified that adapted rather than just measured.
In its best moments, Chasing Trane succeeds in that as well. Na Hong-jin The U. You may not leave the film scared, but you will leave it scarred, which is by far a more substantive response than naked fear. The brilliance of this Antonio Campos drama is that it tries to answer that question while still respecting the enormity and unknowability of such a violent, tragic act.
Rebecca Hall is momentous as Christine, a deeply unhappy woman whose ambition has never matched her talent, and the actress is incredibly sympathetic in the part. The visual rendering is as lush and rich as its subtext, and the music is everything one hopes from Lin-Manuel Miranda.

Ava DuVernay Director Ava DuVernay has successfully made a documentary that challenges and even dismantles our collective understanding of one of the most dangerous notions of our time: It is a deftly woven and defiant look at how clauses within those amendments specifically the lauded 13th and the language of our political system both veil and reveal a profound and devastating truth about America: Slavery was never abolished here, DuVernay and the participants in the film argue.
It was simply amended, and it continues to be amended inwith the constant evolution of the criminal justice system. Still, if all Barras is trying to say is that human beings are essentially good—contrary to popular opinion at the moment—then that should be enough. I Called Him Morgan Director: Documentarian Kasper Collin—who previously made My Name Is Albert Ayler, also about a jazz musician—looks at the difficult, abbreviated life of trumpeter Lee Morgan, who was shot dead in the winter of in New York.
Throughout the film, you feel the slow, grim pull of inevitable tragedy set against a lush visual palette. And then there are the interview subjects and the milieu.
Collin understands that his film is about people, not art, but his deft storytelling—and the endless sadness that comes from his tale—flexes its own nimbleness and beauty.
Keith Maitland The University of Texas clock tower shooting ought to be a footnote in American history and not a reference point for contemporary national woes. It was 50 years ago this past August that Charles Whitman ascended the university tower with a cache of guns, killed three people inside, and went on to kill another 11 plus an unborn baby over the course of an hour and a half.
Back in those days, a public act of violence on this level was an anomaly piercing the veil of our sense of security. Young people trek out into the wilderness for fun and recreation, young people incur the wrath of hostile forces, young people get dead, easy as you please.
XX stands apart from other horror films because it invites its audience to feel a range of emotions aside from just fright.

Unlike Let the Right One In, The Transfiguration may not be a vampire movie at all, but a movie about a lonesome kid with an unhealthy fixation on gothic legends.
Nothing at home happens with action-packed aplomb though the director sets up tense red herrings to lure the audience into a sense of uneaseand yet the stakes are painfully real. James Wan Let it be known: James Wan is, in any fair estimation, an above average director of horror films at the very least.
The progenitor of big money series such as Saw and Insidious has a knack for crafting populist horror that still carries a streak of his own artistic identity, a Spielbergian gift for what speaks to the multiplex audience without entirely sacrificing characterization.
Reminding me of the experience of first seeing Paranormal Activity in a crowded multiplex, The Conjuring has a way of subverting when and where you expect the scares to arrive.
Its intensity, effects work and unrelenting nature set it several tiers above the PG horror against which it was primarily competing.
