  • Slow West

    9:00pm

    Slow West
    • Director: John Maclean
    • Genre(s): Action, Thriller, Western
    • Rating: R
    • Running Time: 84 min.
    "A dark, but spirited fable about the pitilessness of the West, the meaning of home on the range and the worthwhile qualities of wicked, seemingly irredeemable men, “Slow West” is a terrific little parable, and a strong debut by John Maclean worth treasuring. "
    - Rodrigo Perez, The Playlist
    "Slow West often feels like the Coen brothers’ rendition of True Grit, if they’d brought Wes Anderson in as a collaborator. It’s a shaggy-dog story full of colorful characters and aimless but diverting narrative byways, all delivered with Andersonian solemnity, against a backdrop of deeply saturated colors and meticulously dressed sets. "
    - Tasha Robinson, The Dissolve
    "Slow West isn’t a grand epic of that genre. It’s more like “McCabe & Mrs. Miller,” “Dead Man” or the recent “The Homesman,” using familiar signposts to tell a simple, compelling, terrific story. "
    - Joe Neumaier, New York Daily News
  • Roar

    6:00pm

    Roar
    • Starring: Tippi Hedren, Noel Marshall, Melanie Griffith
    • Director: Noel Marshall
    • Genre(s): Adventure, Thriller
    • Rating: PG
    • Running Time: 102 min.
    "Something this bad can’t help but be good. "
    - Steve Davis, Austin Chronicle
    "There’s really not much going on with Roar storywise. But then you take a step back and think about what it is that you’re watching. My viewing of Roar was set to a soundtrack of “Oh my God!” and “Holy crap!”, all of my own making. "
    - Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian
    "I’m giving this an “A” letter grade because I find it utterly absorbing, start to finish. I don’t know if I think it’s a good film, but it is a powerfully compelling film. Perhaps my favorite kind of strange or insane film is the personal passion project, and “Roar” is one of the most remarkable examples of this. "
    - Drew McWeeny, HitFix
  • Far from the Madding Crowd

    6:30pm, 8:15pm

    Far from the Madding Crowd
    • Starring: Carey Mulligan, Juno Temple, Matthias Schoenaerts, Michael Sheen, Tom Sturridge
    • Director: Thomas Vinterberg
    • Genre(s): Drama
    • Rating: PG-13
    • Running Time: 119 mins.
    "He (Vinterberg) has accomplished something that is both extremely simple and extremely difficult: This is a gorgeous literary adaptation true to its period and its source material in almost every respect, largely shot in the “Hardy country” along the south coast of England. It’s also a film that feels charged with life and hunger and romantic-erotic energy. "
    - Andrew O'Hehir, Salon.com
    "Director Thomas Vinterberg’s romantic rollercoaster honors Hardy’s rustic vibe. Remarkably, too, he’s made a thoroughly modern film anyone can relate to — it’s like a “what a woman wants” discussion set in Victorian times. It’s also an instant classic. "
    - Joe Neumaier, New York Daily News
    "The latest version of Hardy’s 1874 classic works on all levels. Foremost, it is brilliantly directed by Thomas Vinterberg,who also made two other masterful dramas, 2012’s “The Huntand” 1998’s “The Celebration.” "
    - Claudia Puig, USA Today
    "With a steely resilience burning beneath her delicate, creamy complexion, Carey Mulligan brings remarkable nuance and a rich inner life to the role of Bathsheba Everdene. "
    - Chris Nashawaty, Entertainment Weekly
    "The movie is as quietly assured as its heroine, Bathsheba Everdene, gracefully played by Carey Mulligan. "
    - Steve Persall, Tampa Bay Times
    "Vinterberg’s Far From the Madding Crowd is a wondrous feat: at turns tender, dramatic, fragile and bold, it’s the definitive adaptation. "
    - Allie Gemmil, CineVue
    "Far From the Madding Crowd is a Masterpiece Theatre version of Thomas Hardy’s 1874 novel, shot with sumptuous taste and care, rife with emotions repressed and unbound, and featuring expertly nuanced performances from a tony, mostly British cast. It will greatly please discerning audiences while causing Hardy to spin discreetly in his grave. That’s a fair trade-off, especially if the movie sends you back to the book. "
    - Ty Burr, Boston Globe
