The 8 Best Movies to Buy or Stream This Week: ‘High Flying Bird,’ ‘At Eternity’s Gate’

This week’s big new streaming release is a Netflix original from one of our favorite directors; Amazon Prime, meanwhile, has added a sleeper you might’ve missed from a Girls co-star.

The 7 Best Movies to Buy or Stream This Week: ‘Velvet Buzzsaw,’ ‘Widows’

Good news, folks: there’s a little something for everyone in this week’s new release line-up: a new and classic foreign film, a couple of fall prestige pictures, a nutso new satirical thriller, an overlooked ‘70s gem, and even (since we’re so inclusive around here) one for the kids. ON NETFLIX Velvet Buzzsaw: In retrospect, it’s […]

The Best and Worst Movies of the 2019 Sundance Film Festival

The Sundance Film Festival closed up shop yesterday, ending 11 days of premieres, competition, and deal-making — and leaving festival-goers and critics to contemplate the independent, foreign, and documentary films that will likely dominate those landscapes for the months to come. Your film editor was among them, and I came away with a strange sense […]

The 5 Best Movies to Buy or Stream This Week: ‘Suspiria,’ ‘Boy Erased’

Two fall sorta-indies land on disc this week; both were met with mixed reactions from critics and audiences, but are well worth (at the very least) a rental. A ‘60s classic also lands on Blu this week, via Criterion, as does a first-rate new documentary on a ‘70s icon. And a superhero movie with a […]

The 6 Best Movies to Buy or Stream This Week: ‘Fyre,’ ‘First Man’

This week’s big movie to watch at home is, wonderfully enough, a documentary (well, two of them).

Off we go: ON NETFLIX Fyre: Director Chris Smith (American Movie) digs deep […]

The 5 Best Movies to Buy or Stream This Week: ‘Halloween,’ ‘The Old Man and the Gun’

Fresh starring roles for familiar faces are in the new release spotlight this week, and though the vehicles vary — a new entry in a horror franchise and a modest, indie character drama — the results are just as pleasing. We’ve also got a controversial new documentary, a horror drama that you might’ve slept on, […]

The 5 Best Movies to Buy or Stream This Week: ‘The Oath,’ ‘Annihilation’

This week’s best new releases couldn’t be further apart: a breakneck political satire on one hand, the meditative final film from an Iranian master on the other. And on your streaming services, we have one of last year’s best movies, a classic comedy, and a shoulda-been-a-classic as well. Let’s dive in: ON NETFLIX Monty Python […]

The 5 Best Movies to Buy or Stream This Week: ‘Bad Times at the El Royale,’ ‘Bad Reputation’

We’re kicking off the new year with a nice, strong new release Tuesday, featuring two engaging bio-documentaries and two fall features that should’ve made more noise than they did. Oh, and one of 2016’s Best Picture nominees is back on the Netflix. Check it out: ON NETFLIX Hell or High Water: Jeff Bridges, Chris Pine, […]
