  • Urbania

    As hypnotic as director John Shear’s feature debut often is, it’s also a jumble that doesn’t quite add up to a satisfying whole. Yet it encapsulates the fear that something wild is lurking just beneath a city’s urbane facade, and that safety is merely a cruel illusion.

  • Girlfight

    Boxing movies traditionally focus on an underdog getting a shot at something better, and while director Karyn Kusama doesn’t stray far from this conventional story line, her film is radical and not because the pugilist is female. Here’s a sports movie that isn’t about winning.

  • The Exorcist
  • The Exorcist
