NEW MOVIES!  OCTOBER 31 - NOVEMBER 6, 2017

THE DARK TOWER (USA, PG-13) - Here's a film for nobody. Fans of the books don't like what they changed and people who haven't read the books have no idea what's going on. But it does have two very tall stars.
DIRECTED BY: Nikolaj Arcel
STARRING: Idris Elba, Matthew McConaughey, Tom Taylor, Claudia Kim, Fran Kranz, Abbey Lee, Katheryn Winnick, Jackie Earle Haley
METASCORE: 34, based on 46 Critics
KIDNAP (USA, R) - I think America is getting tired of the "aging star goes vigilante" genre. Good luck on that DEATH WISH remake, Bruce.
DIRECTED BY: Luis Prieto
STARRING: Halle Berry, Lew Temple, Sage Correa, Chris McGinn
METASCORE: 44, based on 26 Critics
AN INCONVENIENT SEQUEL: TRUTH TO POWER (USA, PG) - Conveniently timed to coincide with our vehemently anti-green current administration...
DIRECTED BY: Bonni Cohen / Jon Shenk
METASCORE: 68, based on 36 Critics
THE MIDWIFE (France, Not Rated) - It's a French-fried movie about affairs and whatnot - but with these stars, it's probably pretty good. A midwife meets her father's former mistress and, despite being total opposites, they become friends, of sorts.
DIRECTED BY: Martin Provost
STARRING: Catherine Deneuve, Catherine Frot, Olivier Gourmet, Quentin Dolmaire
METASCORE: 66, based on 24 Critics
^HERMIA & HELENA (Argentina, Not Rated) - If you know your Shakespeare, the names in the title are from A MIDSUMMER NIGHT'S DREAM. If you know your current art cinema, you'll know that Argentine director Pineiro makes movies that are a bit Rohmer, a bit Rivette, and definitely worth a look if you follow Hong Sang-soo's work.
DIRECTED BY: Matias Pineiro
STARRING: Agustina Muñoz, Mati Diop, Julián Larquier Tellarini
METASCORE: 79, based on 12 Critics
*PERSON TO PERSON (USA, Not Rated) - Mumblecore is alive and kicking in this ode to New York City and the oddballs who live there.
DIRECTED BY: Dustin Guy Defa
STARRING: Abbi Jacobson, Michael Cera, Tavi Gevinson, Bene Coopersmith, George Sample III, Philip Baker Hall
METASCORE: 53, based on 16 Critics
HARMONIUM (Japan, Not Rated) - A man fresh out of a decade in prison for murder takes a job with a old friend at his home metalwork business. He seems to be a changed man, but what's he really after?
DIRECTED BY: Koji Fukada
STARRING: Tadanobu Asano, Mariko Tsutsui, Kanji Furutachi
METASCORE: 84, based on 16 Critics
$DAWSON CITY: FROZEN TIME (USA, Not Rated) - A treasure trove of lost silent films is discovered in an excavation of a Yukon Gold Rush town. This documentary uses some of the footage to reveal the town's history and loads of other early 20th Century events.
DIRECTED BY: Bill Morrison
METASCORE: 85, based on 14 Critics
PLANETARIUM (France, Not Rated) - Natalie Portman and Johnny Depp's daughter play sisters in this pretty but confusing story of performing spiritual mediums in France.
DIRECTED BY: Rebecca Zlotowski
STARRING: Natalie Portman, Lily-Rose Depp, Amira Casar
METASCORE: 44, based on 13 Critics
ABUNDANT ACREAGE AVAILABLE (USA, Not Rated) - A family crisis makes the future of the family farm uncertain. Look out for some strong acting in this low-key indie.
DIRECTED BY: Angus MacLachlan
STARRING: Amy Ryan, Terry Kinney, Max Gail, Francis Guinan, Steve Coulter
METASCORE: 68, based on 10 Critics
HAROLD AND LILLIAN: A HOLLYWOOD LOVE STORY (USA, Not Rated) - It's a documentary about storyboard artist Harold Michelson and film researcher Lillian Michelson and their true love that spanned the ages. Plus, you wouldn't believe how crucial these two were in the making of so many classic Hollywood films.
DIRECTED BY: Daniel Raim
METASCORE: 75, based on 9 Critics
