A Ciambra (2017)

It’s not surprising to find that kids in the Amato clan (ably portrayed here by a real-life family of Amatos) are eager — perhaps even desperate — to grow up, because they don’t have much of anything that could be called a childhood. Their play is the play of adults ... (NR)

Alanis (2017)

A young prostitute (with child in tow) is bounced from her “house” by the same law enforcement officers sworn to help keep her off the streets.

Alien: Covenant (2017)

Ridley Scott finishes what he started in Prometheus: the story of David (Michael Fassbender), a sentient creation who discovers that his creator is laughably inferior, but still potentially useful.

All Eyez on Me (2017)

A lumbering, illustrated hagiography of the slain rap phenom Tupac Shakur that, in its efforts to exalt and exonerate the man, reduces him to a strangely passive figure: a sweet, goodhearted, brilliant kid to whom bad things keep happening. The structure leans heavily on reporters — whether conducting interviews, appearing ... (R)

American Assassin (2017)

Over the past three years, Michael Keaton has created memorable characters in Birdman, Spotlight, The Founder, and even Spider-Man: Homecoming. So maybe he’s earned the right to bluster and snarl his way through this creaky, clichéd thriller about nuclear-minded terrorists, the secretly soulful killing machines who must hunt them down, ...

American Made (2017)

Tom Cruise breaks out his best shit-eating grin (and accompanying bad-boyisms, mooning included) to play Great American Barry Seal for director Doug Liman. Good thing, too, since he winds up eating an awful lot of it: a lil’ cigar-smuggling while working as a commercial pilot leads to the CIA hooking ... (R)
