alt "The '60s -- 1968 in particular -- are so encrusted with legend, nostalgia and pop-historical cliche that it may seem unlikely for a new movie to yield much insight. But those dreading 50th-anniversary greatest-hits medleys will find solace, enlightenment and surprise in Joao Moreira Salles's 'In the Intense Now,' a bittersweet, ruminative documentary essay composed of footage from the era accompanied by thoughtful, disarmingly personal voice-over narration."
-- A.O. Scott, The New York Times

Documentary/history; Portuguese; 127 minutes; 2018

"'In the Intense Now' surveys Paris 1968 and the revolution that almost was."

alt From the raucous dual imaginations of fantasy laureate Neil Gaiman ("American Gods", "Coraline") and glam-rock multi-hyphenate John Cameron Mitchell ("Hedwig and the Angry Itch", "Shortbus") comes the electrifying and singular pop extravaganza film, "How To Talk To Girls At Parties". Enn (Alex Sharp) is a shy suburban London teenager in 1977, sneaking out with his best friends to after-hours punk parties. One night they stumble upon a bizarre gathering of sexy teenagers who seem like they are from another planet. In fact, they are from another planet.

Comedy/music/romance; In English; 102 minutes; 2018

"A wondrously bizarre affair, an exercise in kitsch and high camp that combines inspired moments with scenes that make you want to curl up in acute embarrassment."
-- Independent (UK)

Directed by John Cameron Mitchell
Starring Elle Fanning, Nicole Kidman, Alex Sharp. Ruth Wilson

alt "CHARGED AND POIGNANT.
It was tragedy, not triumph, that made the Chapecoense football club world-famous. The small-city team's Cinderella story came to a calamitous halt in November 2016, when their charter flight to the Copa Sudamericana finals in Colombia crashed into a mountain...
Filmmakers Michael and Jeff Zimbalist and their co-director, Julian Duque, have made a gripping sports film that requires no knowledge of the sport."

alt ROTTEN TOMATOES: "96% FRESH"

"For the many generations that grew up with Rogers' friendly face as their guide, 'Won't You Be My Neighbor?' is like peering into the past with renewed clarity and wishing his civility had caught on."

-- Eric Kohn, IndieWire

Documentary; In English; 94 minutes; 2018

"In this gentle way, 'Won't You Be My Neighbor?' turns from feel-good bio-doc to a beguiling battle cry. In a time where it seems conflict and division is everywhere and unavoidable, a reminder of the love, decency, and respect of Mister Rogers is sorely needed. And it's up to all of us to bring it back."
-- Kristy Puchko, Riot Material

-- Brian Tallerico, RogerEbert.com

"For fans of the director's 'Winter's Bone'... this unconventional family portrait shares many qualities, including profound empathy for backwoods characters and the discovery of yet another young talent in Thomasin Harcourt McKenzie."
-- Peter Debruge, Variety

alt "Joaquin Phoenix delivers a profoundly impressive turn as famed cartoonist John Callahan."
-- Gregory Ellwood, The Playlist

Biography/comedy/drama; In English; 113 minutes; 2018

"The director and screenwriter is Gus Van Sant, who makes movies that conform to no recognizable templates, and Joaquin Phoenix (who plays Callahan) is one among the most thrillingly unpredictable film actors alive...when his high-wire emotional arc suits the movie, there are few who can touch him."
-- David Edelstein, New York Magazine

Directed by Gus Van Sant
Starring Joaquin Phoenix, Jonah Hill, Rooney Mara, Jack Black
