Movie Reviews: New Releases for Nov. 23

The Fabelmans, Glass Onion, Strange World, Devotion, Bones and All
Bones and All **1/2 The central conceit in director Luca Guadagnino’s film—adapted by David Kajganich from Camille DeAngelis’s 2015 novel—is clearly an allegory for something; the question of what that something might be keeps this tale from being truly effective. Maren Yearly (Taylor Russell), a teenager living with her single father (André Holland), has a secret: She has an appetite for human flesh.

Movie Reviews: New Releases for Nov. 17-18

Disenchanted, Guillermo Del Toro's Pinocchio, She Said, The Menu and more
Bardo, False Chronicle of a Handful of Truths ** Plenty of classic films have been steeped in dream-logic imagery; Alejandro González Iñárritu takes that notion to a level that sometimes just doesn’t know when to take the simpler route. Broadly speaking, it’s the story of Silverio Gama (Daniel Jiménez Cacho), a Mexican born TV journalist-turned-documentary filmmaker about to receive a major award in his adopted home of Los Angeles.

Movie Reviews: New Releases for Nov. 11

Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, Spirited, My Father's Dragon, Aftersun and more
Aftersun *** There’s a difference between understanding intellectually what a narrative is trying to deliver, and feeling the thing that it’s trying to deliver—and writer/director Charlotte Wells’ debut feature, for this viewer, remains just shy of the latter. The veil of memory is clear from the outset as we follow Scottish dad Callum (Paul Mescal) and his 11-year-old daughter Sophie (Frankie Corio) on a summer vacation together in Turkey, likely in some unspecified late-1990s/early 2000s year.

Theater Reviews: Plan-B Theatre Co.'s MY BROTHER WAS A VAMPIRE and Pygmalion Productions' MOTHER, MOTHER: THE MANY MOTHERS OF MAUDE

Leo Tolstoy’s now-ubiquitous quote about every unhappy family being unhappy in its own way might have become a cliché, but clichés get that way for a reason: We feel that they’re true.

Movie Reviews: New Releases for Nov. 4

Armageddon Time, Causeway, The Banshees of Inisherin, Weird: The Al Yankovic Story and more
Armageddon Time **1/2 Over the course of nearly 30 years as a filmmaker, one of James Gray’s undeniable gifts has been creating a rich sense of place for his stories; they’re scometimes less compelling when he gets too explicit about the thematic subtext he inserts into those places. This coming-of-age tale set in pre-Reagan 1980 Queens, New York follows sixth-grader Paul Graff (Banks Repeta) as he begins learning hard truths about the world, particularly when he befriends Black classmate Johnny (Jaylin Webb).
