Survive the Game, directed by James Cullen Bressack, is the worst kind of bad movie. It’s not bad enough to be unintentionally funny or bad enough to make one lament the waste of talent involved. It’s a lazy, inept movie that barely has a reason for existing. The filmmakers, including first-…

MONA LISA (The Criterion Collection): Bob Hoskins was a great actor, a latter-day Edward G. Robinson who played heroes and villains with equal force and nuance. Even better, his versatility knew few bounds. This exquisite 1986 crime drama, as emotionally layered as it is noir-ish, earned him…

Originally titled Den blomstertid nu kommer, The Unthinkable was completed in 2018. That it took three years to reach these shores in no way reflects the film’s quality — or lack thereof. But global circumstances brought an unexpected, even remarkable timeliness to the story, and it’s no sur…
