    Meet the Patels is a tidy, easygoing documentary in which peripheral players prove more intriguing than its central focus.

    To its benefit, it has rich roles for, and splendid performances by, its three principal actresses. To its detriment, their characters are each in their own way pining for the same man, whose simple actions in life seem undeserving of their considerable exertions after his demise.

    [A] slight exercise, which, for all its modesty, generates a measure of dread.

    The Japanese have a term for a certain type of character in manga (comic books) and anime: bishonen — pubescent in appearance, devoid of facial hair, sensitive, unthreatening. That would be Mr. Espinosa.

    Some movies about making movies (Truffaut’s “Day for Night,” for one) are charming. The self-references here, while intriguing, approach a comic navel-gaze. Actor Martinez has a saving grace, however: Ms. Burdge.

    Anne Hathaway made a splash in Disney’s “The Princess Diaries,” and the rangy Ms. Kapoor (who descends from a Bollywood dynasty) shares some of her early incandescence, along with a Julia Roberts-like smile.

    This film nimbly straddles biography and “Trek” valentine (Adam is a longtime television director), but also recounts the fraught if ultimately devoted ties between Adam and Leonard.

    Though Mr. Ryoo’s taste for heightened theatricality threatens his story’s credibility at times, there is no denying his skill with a large-scale action set piece.

    Mr. Peng has charisma, though his moves are less convincing than those of an earlier Fei.... But “Legend” does offer the hefty authority of Mr. Hung, who at 64 can still — almost — hit, kick and do wire work with the best of them.
    • 65 Metascore
    • 60 Andy Webster
    Mr. Hosoda is skilled with fight scenes, and his settings — the pastel-hued Jutengai and the drab Shibuya, evoked at times with surveillance-camera perspectives and crowd-paranoia angles — are impressive. But the characterizations and conflicts here are strictly generic

    The pieces don’t entirely cohere, but Ms. Smith has a promising sensibility.
    • 56 Metascore
    • 60 Andy Webster
    Mr. Irons handily hits the emotional beats, as does Mr. Patel.
    • 48 Metascore
    • 60 Andy Webster
    The ending to this fable misses the opportunity for broader metaphorical resonance, but getting there has its own unnerving rewards.

    We are largely left with the images, which take us far, if not far enough.
    • 60 Metascore

    Mr. Klein is well served by his actors, who exude conviction, charisma and palpable ardor.
    • 48 Metascore
    • 60 Andy Webster
    Almost every image in this movie — from webcams, websites and laptop cameras — appears on a monitor. Scenes pulse with the Internet’s speed and sprawl, aided by clever editing that pops. The effect is insular, off-putting and disconcertingly familiar.
    • 49 Metascore
    • 60 Andy Webster
    Narrative depth may be in short supply, but the energy, invention and humor are bracing.
    • 66 Metascore
    • 60 Andy Webster
    Mr. Gilady, a documentarian making his fiction feature debut as a writer and director, over-stacks the deck with this belabored if artfully shot story.
    • 42 Metascore
    • 60 Andy Webster
    An investigation among the attendees grants Mr. Andò the opportunity to pursue pithy, discursive exchanges about power, austerity and capitalism amid high-end accommodations and a tasteful classical soundtrack.
    • 32 Metascore

    The movie benefits greatly from Mr. Amoedo’s largely steady direction and the uniform acting skills of its Chilean cast (performing in English).
    • 49 Metascore
    • 60 Andy Webster
    [A] modest, proficient thriller.

    The film may leave you hungry for deeper insight into some its most renowned purveyors.

    Mr. Chi, making his feature debut with Tentacle 8, lavishes attention on his characters at the expense of the through line binding them.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 60 Andy Webster
    The actors are uniformly impressive, and Mr. Wheatley’s longtime cinematographer, Laurie Rose, shooting in black and white, combines stunning pastoral compositions with bursts of graphic violence punctuated by blazing flintlocks.
    • 54 Metascore
    • 60 Andy Webster
    A savvy exercise in inspirational feel-good cinema lightly seasoned with grit.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 60 Andy Webster
    The director, Joey Kuhn, making his feature debut from his own script, has created fairly credible and sympathetic characters, despite the 1-percenter milieu.
    • 53 Metascore
    • 60 Andy Webster
    Though the script tilts to the didactic, the performances are absolutely delicious, with Mr. Meaney droll and understated and Mr. Spall fiery and derisive, yet not above a joke.

    Mr. Payet, who is one of the film’s directors and screenwriters, is a comedy star in France, and this movie is facile with its comic rhythms and dramatic flow.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 60 Andy Webster
    There’s much sympathy but little tension in P J Raval’s new documentary.

    A kaleidoscopic travelogue depicting demonstrations of faith worldwide.
