Puzzle ★★★ 1/2 Scottish actress Kelly Macdonald gives a moving performance in Marc Turtletaub’s Puzzle Read more >>

The Spy Who Dumped Me ★★ “Director and co-writer Susanna Fogel’s The Spy Who Dumped Me probably looked OK on paper, but even if you enjoyed Mila Kunis’ turns in movies like Bad Moms, her Audrey and McKinnon’s Morgan are about as believable as best friends as Donald Trump and Barack Obama would be.” Read more >>

The Third Murder ★★★ 1/2 “The opening moments of this first of two dramas we’ll be seeing this year from masterful Japanese filmmaker Hirokazu Kore-eda find a middle-aged man bludgeoning another with a wrench, before he pours gasoline on the body and sets it ablaze in an empty field late at night.
