    You may not agree with every observation in Michael Singh’s documentary Valentino’s Ghost. But this engrossing examination of American perceptions of Arabs and the Arab world gets you thinking.

    It takes Sean Ellis’s World War II thriller Anthropoid a while to build steam, but once it does, hang on.

    Breezy, intelligent, diffuse but uncluttered, Fredrik Gertten’s documentary Bikes vs Cars could be called a tale of congestion-plagued cities.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 90 Andy Webster
    A record of a man’s tormented youth, his broad artistic impulses and the price he paid for following them.

    This film — the second from the Soskas, and shot in their hometown, Vancouver, British Columbia — combines gore, quiet dread, feminist conviction and a visual classicism, often using a red palette, with impressive, unbelabored dexterity.

    The ideas in this densely packed but enlightening film can be challenging, but must be heard.

    The variety of physical perspectives lends a vivid you-are-there aspect to this record of the Zuccotti Park protest in New York in 2011.

    Trapped is not a balanced analysis of the abortion debate; it makes its sympathies clear. But it is a powerful and persuasive rendering of a corner of women’s health care under siege.

    [A] fascinating documentary.

    Quiet, graceful, stately and infused with slow tension, Dana Rotberg’s White Lies unfolds with inexorable weight.

    This is a movie that drops quotations from Faulkner and Einstein, but it rarely feels pedantic or platitudinous, thanks to the breezy, assured delivery of Mr. Khan.

    The movie revels in multiple film stocks (with hairs or threads often on the camera lens) and self-conscious “Last Movie” flourishes (long intervals between credits, “scene missing” title cards, a version of “Me and Bobby McGee”) while maintaining its blithe humor.

    German Kral’s documentary Our Last Tango is a combination of things, all fascinating.
    • 68 Metascore

    Many of the passages in this gentle film may be universal, but the love here is extraordinary.

    Ms. Kendrick — whether playing daffy, amorous, insightful or indignant — carries the movie. And her surprising shades of grit don’t hurt, either.

    One notion underlying Shalini Kantayya’s winning documentary, Catching the Sun, is that solar power is not only a cleaner alternative to fossil fuels but can also effectively curtail unemployment.

    A re-creation of the night, with an actress playing the screaming victim while Mr. Genovese observes, is harrowing.

    Like many tragic visionaries, Kirk Hanna lives on through his ideas long after his death.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 80 Andy Webster
    This winning movie — directed by Daniel Ribeiro, making his feature debut — dexterously weaves the social challenges of adolescence into a story of broader self-discovery.

    The luminaries in “21” pay deserving tribute to Mr. Linklater. Soon, perhaps, so will the Academy

    Ms. Turner captures the intimacy of solemn, heartfelt moments, and salutes a man who honors their value.

    There are heroic adults here.... There is also deft editing, artful camerawork and effective music in abundance.

    In Antonio Banderas, Mr. Hudson has a winning de Sautuola of personal modesty, scientific integrity and paternal warmth.

    In its allegiance to detail, the film is too long and perhaps overstates its case in claiming that later generations have lost an understanding of common courage, as depicted by these two artists. Their work endures, and so does what they stood for.
