Movie reviews from RollingStone

A wise man once said that all you need to make a movie is a girl and a gun. British filmmaker Ben Wheatley doesn't let his entry in the tough-guy canon tweak that formula per se – he just ups the ante substantially on the second part. Set in a Seventies Boston of mile-wide lapels and John Denver 8-tracks, this high-concept, high-caliber crime thriller maneuvers a

Unforgettable is definitely the wrong title for a movie you want to erase from your memory the second it ends. Times are hard for women filmmakers, so it's troubling news when talented producer Denise Di Novi (Heathers, Edward Scissorhands, Crazy Stupid Love) chooses to make her directing debut with a film that recycles every Psycho Barbie cliché in the Hollywood

There are two movies fighting for control of Terry George's attempt at a "topical" historical epic. The first, a scalding dramatization of the Ottoman Empire's 1915 genocidal annihilation of its Armenian citizens, is everything you expect from the heartfelt committed director behind films like Hotel Rwanda and Some Mother's Son. The second – the one that reduces

The Furious 8 crowd is advised to run for the hills. Terence Davies is a poet of cinema, of images, sounds and rhythms that define a life. Davies films move at a pace demanded by the material, not fidgety audiences. His remarkable debut features –

James Gray makes films like an explorer, digging for the details that define character and art. The Lost City of Z doesn't look like Gray's other movies. Little Odessa, The Yards, We Own the Night, Two Lovers and The Immigrant mostly investigated the corners of his native New York. The Lost City of Z, set in Ireland, England and the Amazonian jungle at the start of

It's party time for action junkies and auto-erotics. The Fate of the Furious, a.k.a. Furious 8, is a bolt of greased lightning that never lets up on the shake, rattle and hum. Is it as killer good as 2015's Furious 7? Don't get greedy. That thunderously exciting and surprisingly touching blockbuster would have made the ideal capper to the Fast and the Furious

The subtitle for this compulsively watchable film is The Moderate Rise and Tragic Fall of a New York Fixer. It’s a mouthful. But Norman, written and directed by American-born Israeli Joseph Cedar (Footnote) in his first English-language film, is a spellbinder that features Richard Gere in one of his best performances ever.

If you want to hang with a trio of old-coot charmers, you could do worse than Going in Style, a comic softball that, for the price of a movie ticket, puts you in the pleasurable company of Morgan Freeman, 79, Alan Arkin, 83, and Michael Caine, 84. The movie is no bargain, but the actors keep delivering dividends.

To director Cristian Mungiu, Romania is not just a country – it's a state of mind. The 48-year-old filmmaker grew up in a post-communist society, one where citizens still feel the boot of Soviet rule that ended nearly three decades ago with the overthrow of Stalinist dictator Nicolae Ceausescu. His latest, Graduation, isn't quite on the landmark level of his searing 2007

A Godzilla-like monster is on the loose in South Korea ... and he seems to be mimicing the drunken gyrations of a New York party girl. Wait, what? Colossal, the brilliantly bizarro brainchild of Spanish writer-director Nacho Vigalondo, is a giant-creature-run-amuck fantasy that takes satiric aim at thirtysomethings who think the world revolves around them. But damned if this
