“The Hunt” is social satire made for (and maybe even by) folks who get their news via shared Facebook posts. It’s a monochromatic stab at political edginess, with dialogue written like memes … more

“The Hunt” is social satire made for (and maybe even by) folks who get their news via shared Facebook posts. It’s a monochromatic stab at political edginess, with dialogue written like memes and characters stereotypes as broad as a 1940s Disney cartoon.

More “Lord of the Flies” than “Peter Pan,” “Wendy” appeals to folks who wish their charming childhood fiction had more strange creatures and feral children in it. Writer-director Benh Zeitlin waited eight years to make a follow-up feature to “Beasts of the Southern Wild,” and he kinda ended up making a sequel. more
The film speaks to those who have lost their fathers and struggle with the complicated family dynamics that often follow. But that message gets diluted in this medieval morass that lurches along until a denouement that ends where it began and thus feels like it goes nowhere (more unintended allegory). more
The “Hoosiers”-esque story arc of director Gavin O’Connor’s “The Way Back” feels instantly familiar. The tropes are recognizable and not especially compelling. But “The Way Back” isn’t a basketball movie serviced by colorful characters. It’s a character portrait in which basketball is the plaintive backdrop. more
