Crime

Sweet Virginia

This is Christopher Abbott’s show. He stars as an an aw-shucks, sweet professional killer.

Logan Lucky

The Nile Hilton Incident

So overflowing with atmosphere, this aspiring thriller can’t quite live up to the richness of its setting, Cairo, right before the Arab Spring.

Nocturama

Nocturama’s detached treatment of adolescent nihilism echoes modish turns by directors like Larry Clark and Michael Haneke—filmmakers love teens on a rampage.

Good Time

What Mean Streets and Taxi Driver did for 1970s Manhattan, Good Time does for Queens of the 2010s.

Santoalla

Featuring a quiet village, bad blood between neighbors, and an unsolved disappearance, this documentary has the makings of a classic crime tale.

O.J.: Made in America

A thorough look at O.J. Simpson the man rather than the defendant, and what emerges isn’t an over-the-top chronicle of the so-called trial of the century but the trajectory of a seminal American figure.

Old Stone

A tightly wound gem of a movie that wastes none of its brisk 80 minutes.

Dog Eat Dog

A fleabag of a crime movie and pure, unadulterated, hard-R-don’t-give-a-damn Paul Schrader.
