Comedy

Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri

Revenge is served in many ways, all violently, in this comedy of crime and culpability.

Lemon

An aggressively quirky, misanthropic film focusing on a singularly unpleasant human being.

Brave New Jersey

Martians are apparently landing and taking over the world. One small New Jersey town panics and prepares for the invasion.

Whisky Galore!

Due to World War II rationing, a small Scottish island runs dry of its beloved drink, and the entire population nearly goes mad.

Colossal

The movie is odd as hell, which is welcome, at least at first.

Table 19

The comedy works best when, instead of advancing plot, the six core cast members bounce off each other at the titular table.

Slash

Slash stands out as this year’s film for the true teenage outcast.

The Brand New Testament

Exploring other worlds, this film inhabits a Terry Gilliam or Michel Gondry zone with a wide-open heart and a supple spring in its step.

In a Valley of Violence

Director Ty West takes his inspiration from the spate of second-rate Hollywood and third-rate Italian spaghetti westerns of the early- to mid-’70s.
