Everyone might be talking about “Toy Story 4,” but one of life’s few certainties is that the influx of indie reviews never stops. This week’s films ran the entire spectrum of quality, from a great Martin Scorsese documentary to the big-budget franchise disaster that everybody saw coming. Plus we have a gangster film from Cannes, and on the TV side a Boston show from Ben Affleck and Matt Damon, and HBO’s first original Spanish-language series. Keep reading for all those reviews, and everything in between:
Scorsese’s revisionist “No Direction Home” followup is as delightfully weird as the tour that inspired it, says David Ehrlich.
Jarmusch’s latest is heavy-handed, and lethargic even by his standards, according to David Ehrlich.
The reboot that nobody asked for is an unfocused, expensive mess, writes Eric Kohn.
David Ehrlich praises the film for its awareness of its own predictability, and the character choices that allow it to rise above standard gangster fare.
Despite the last film’s seemingly definitive ending, Woody’s latest adventure has even more to say, thanks to an unexpected new character.
This rough outing proves Adam Sandler isn’t even trying anymore, writes David Ehrlich.
The new series from Ben Affleck and Matt Damon is a standard cop show with impeccable attention to detail, writes Ben Travers.
The six-episode first season provides plenty of laughs because it knows exactly what it is, according to Ben Travers.
The second season of Ryan Murphy’s hit ups the glamour, ups the Billy Porter, and provides a more complete picture of ballroom culture writes Hanh Nguyen.
After three excellent years, Hanh Nguyen thinks the clown comedy is setting up its grand finale.
