A strange new world greeted America this week, but at theaters, it's another weekend of new releases.

The documentary Harry & Snowman  takes a true-live underdog story and loses track of the dynamics that make it most interesting. King Cobra dramatizes a sordid true-crime tale in the world of gay porn  while pretending it's about something more.

Eric D. Snider says that the science-fiction drama Arrival (pictured) turns an alien visitation into a poignant, personal story of humanity at its worst and best.

In this weeks' feature review, Moonlight beautifully examines the intersection of race, sexuality and masculinity.

Also opening this week, but not screened for press: a dysfunctional family gathers for the holidays in Almost Christmas; and a mother and her disabled son try to escape a possible home invasion by a ghost in Shut In.
