    Young director Marek Najbrt, commendably, is not interested in wringing easy tears from the European experience of World War II. In the handsome drama Protektor, he brings a cool, noirish slant to a story of Czech artists and intellectuals as they accommodate and to a lesser extent resist the German occupiers.

    Cameron Crowe's feature documentary is among his most effective and deeply felt work.
    • 69 Metascore

    Captures a reunion between them that speaks volumes about the intense connections, complicated and big-hearted, that have fueled an extraordinary musical collaboration.

    The low gore quotient and emphasis on young love might disappoint genre purists, but for those open to the idea of a gently goofy mash-up, the film is strong on atmosphere and offers likably low-key, if somewhat bland, charms.

    Meryl Streep narrates a heartwarming documentary for an up close look at Arctic wildlife.
    • 37 Metascore

    The movie is, by and large, smarter than the gross-out tactics that pass for hilarity in many mainstream adult comedies.
    • 57 Metascore
    • 70 Sheri Linden
    The script excels at character-driven laughs, cerebral yet goofy, without resorting to sitcom stereotypes or genitalia-focused stupidity.

    The documentary Stolen Seas is not just a high-energy chronicle of a ship's hijacking; Thymaya Payne's bold debut feature steps back for a view of Somali piracy that's both broader and more incisive than most mainstream news coverage.

    Bahrani sometimes pushes too hard as he reaches for big drama. But when the story works, it has a dark power that draws shrewdly upon his two leads' screen charisma.
    • 61 Metascore
    • 70 Sheri Linden
    Its restraint is its strength. The focus on a woman's passionate hard work without need of marital-status back story is refreshing.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 70 Sheri Linden
    Lynch's film is a work of steady chronological progression. Without straining for big-picture significance, it provides a composed look into the revolutionary spirit.
    • 80 Metascore

    Writer-director Peter Strickland...uses atmosphere as others would use plot, and knows how to provoke comic shudders. But he tends to repeat himself, and he doesn't quite find a satisfying denouement for the inventive premise.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 70 Sheri Linden
    Barbara Sukowa's performance in the title role is the kind that reverberates long after the screen goes black.
    • 65 Metascore
    • 70 Sheri Linden
    Megumi Sasaki's follow-up to her first documentary, 2008's Herb & Dorothy, is as engaging and unpretentious as its subjects.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 70 Sheri Linden
    Policy wonk Robert Reich’s analysis of today’s parallels to the Great Depression is both statistics-driven and impassioned.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 70 Sheri Linden
    In Chadwick Boseman, it has a galvanic core, a performance that transcends impersonation and reverberates long after the screen goes dark.
    • 70 Metascore

    Jillian Schlesinger’s first feature, made in collaboration with Dekker and composed largely of footage that the hardy adventurer shot herself, is both low-key and lyrical as it focuses on the mundane and the magnificent.
    • 70 Metascore
    • 70 Sheri Linden
    A compellingly unconventional, elliptical sports documentary that explores the mysterious realm of might-have-been.
    • 47 Metascore
    • 70 Sheri Linden
    Unfocused lapses aside, though, the film is intriguing and discomforting in equal measure, using its brief running time to frame thoughtful, boundary-pushing questions.
    • 72 Metascore
    • 70 Sheri Linden
    Australian writer-director Kim Mordaunt doesn't always succeed at balancing the sentimental, the political and the ethnographic, but at its strongest the story is a seamless melding of history's dark undertow and a child's indefatigable optimism.
    • 60 Metascore
    • 70 Sheri Linden
    It's the loosely connected encounters of the early sequences that are remarkable in their poignancy and humor.
    • 63 Metascore
    • 70 Sheri Linden
    A delightfully unforced comedy with a sure grasp of character and setting.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 70 Sheri Linden
    With its grasp of suspense and character, it hits the mark as a portrait of openhearted determination that's devoid of desperation.
    • 59 Metascore
    • 70 Sheri Linden
    Audiences will find themselves face to face with their own prejudices, assumptions and, perhaps, squeamishness.
    • 50 Metascore
    • 70 Sheri Linden
    Keener's performance riveting.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 70 Sheri Linden
    Hicks' unabashed love letter is, above all, a stirring picture of communion between artists.
    • 64 Metascore
    • 70 Sheri Linden
    Written by Amy Lowe Starbin and directed by Jen McGowan, both first-timers, the feature is alive with interactions that feel spontaneous.
    • 67 Metascore

    For all their layered complexity, the songs can slip into a musical and rhetorical sameness. But the concert's aesthetic power is undeniable. The swirl of sound and motion burns with a bright intensity, not unlike like the onstage Tesla coils that have been reconfigured as instruments.

    Though it hasn't the sweep to be greater than the sum of its parts, the movie offers an absorbing mix of melodrama and historical detail.
