    • Running Time: 118 min.
    "A mesmerizing, realistic and often hilarious look at the politics of power and the power of ideas. "
    - Peter Howell, Toronto Star
    "No succeeds, wonderfully, because it knows how to sell itself. It is cool, witty, technically dazzling in a low-key and convincing way. "
    - Michael Phillips, Chicago Tribune
    "The film becomes a sort of boxing match, getting more intense with each round, building to an exciting finish. "
    - Omer M. Mozaffar, Chicago Sun-Times
    "It’s the rare political satire that can sound the depths of irony as No does and still end on a note of ambivalent hope. "
    - Dana Stevens, Slate
    "A troubling, exhilarating and ingeniously realized film that’s part stirring political drama and part devilish media satire. "
    - Andrew O'Hehir, Salon
    "A political drama, a personal drama, a sharp-eyed study of how the media manipulate us from all sides, No reels and ricochets with emotional force. "
    - Steven Rea, Philadelphia Inquirer
    "If there are fewer white-knuckle showdowns than in a Hollywood movie, the trade-off is a cool, ironic intelligence that ripples off the screen and up the years to where we live. "
    - Ty Burr, Boston Globe
    "Nominated by the Academy as the year’s best foreign-language film, No grabs you hard, no mercy, and keeps you riveted. "
    - Peter Travers, Rolling Stone
    "Explores the power of popular dissent, and the coordinated persuasions of media, marketing, and targeted advertising in shaping the word no to invigorate a populace pessimistically conditioned to think that nothing will ever change for the good. "
    - Lisa Schwarzbaum, Entertainment Weekly
    "Take the backroom political machinations of “Lincoln,” add in the showbiz sleight of hand of “Argo,” and you’ll get something like No, a cunning and richly enjoyable combination of high-stakes drama and media satire. "
    - Liam Lacey, The Globe and Mail (Toronto
    "Marshall McLuhan called advertising the greatest art form of the 20th century. In No, Pablo Larraín’s sly, smart, fictionalized tale about the art of the sell during a fraught period in Chilean history, advertising isn’t only an art; it’s also a way of life. "
    - Manohla Dargis, The New York Times
  • Woman at War

    3:15pm, 7:30pm

    Woman at War
    • Starring: Halldóra Geirharðsdóttir, Jóhann Sigurðarson, Juan Camillo Roman Estrada
    • Director: Benedikt Erlingsson
    • Languages: Icelandic, English, Spanish, Ukrainian
    • Genre(s): Action, Drama, Thriller
    • Rating: NR
    • Running Time: 101 min.
    "Offbeat, poignant and visually exquisite. "
    - Jordan Mintzer, Hollywood Reporter
    "Cinematically and philosophically rewarding from start to finish. "
    - Tomris Laffly, RogerEbert.com
    "A wry, idiosyncratic comedy that communicates important topical messages while never being less than a joy to watch. "
    - Brad Wheeler, Globe and Mail
    "With a masterful melding of the serious, the comic, the ridiculous and the musical, Woman at War is joyful to experience though difficult to sum up. "
    - Kenneth Turan, Los Angeles Times
    "Approaching weighty themes with a very light touch, Benedikt Erlingsson’s Woman at War is an environmental drama wrapped in whimsical comedy and tied with a bow of midlife soul-searching. "
    - Jeannette Catsoulis, The New York Times
    "Filmmaker Erlingsson has an eye for detail, a flair for the absurd – a sousaphone-based trio pops up here and there – and a deft touch with social commentary and political satire. "
    - Brad Wheeler, The Globe and Mail (Toronto)
    "An artful fable that examines what it really means to save the world, Benedikt Erlingsson’s “Woman at War” is the rarest of things: A crowd-pleaser about climate change. "
    - David Ehrlich, indieWire
    "Approaching weighty themes with a very light touch, Benedikt Erlingsson’s “Woman at War” is an environmental drama wrapped in whimsical comedy and tied with a bow of midlife soul-searching. "
    - Jeannette Catsoulis, New York Times
    "Beneath the playful surfaces - musical interludes, quirky neighbors, happy smiley eco-terrorists, Rube Goldbergian sabotage attempts - lie some uncomfortable truths about citizenship, family, and privilege. "
    - Bilge Ebiri, Village Voice
    "Erlingsson’s genius lies in how he puts it all together with such witty intelligence, arranging beautifully shot picaresque episodes around a central figure who lives the ideals of the heroes she has hanging on her wall, Mahatma Gandhi and Nelson Mandela. "
    - Jay Weissberg, Variety
    "Woman at War takes its tone not from von Trier but deadpan pranksters like the Finnish Aki Kaurismaki, whose absurdities have an undercurrent of tragedy. Erlingsson has a magnetic heroine in Geirharðsdóttir, who’s lithe and athletic without being a show off, and underplays as a good soldier would. "
    - David Edelstein, New York Magazine (Vulture)
  • Diane

    5:30pm

    Diane
    • Starring: Mary Kay Place, Jake Lacy, Estelle Parsons
    • Director: Kent Jones
    • Genre(s): Drama
    • Rating: NR
    • Running Time: 95 min.
    "Every moment in Jones’s film is so precisely textured that it becomes fantastical. "
    - Chuck Bowen, Slant Magazine
    "[A] naturalistic portrait of service and self-sacrifice by way of a quietly astonishing title performance by Mary Kay Place. "
    - Ann Hornaday, Washington Post
    "The movie is populated by people we seldom see in mainstream films, so seldom that we may not remember the pleasure we’ve been missing. "
    - Joe Morgenstern, Wall Street Journal
    "The more adventurous or open-hearted may step into this film and find a kind of translucent everyday poetry. "
    - Ty Burr, Boston Globe
    "Mary Kay Place delivers one of the year’s best performances in this shattering character study from writer-director Kent Jones in a narrative feature debut that sneaks up and floors you. "
    - Peter Travers, Rolling Stone
    "Kent has assembled a superb group of character actors here, who tell lived-in stories with extraordinary sensitivity and grace. It is a great pleasure to see actors who know how to use every bit of their real, unfixed faces to show the subtlest details of thought and emotion. "
    - Nell Minow, RogerEbert.com
    "Jones makes both narrative and formalistic leaps, which won’t be spoiled here, that initially are jarring in comparison to the lo-fi aesthetic that precedes it, but truly open the film up to broader implications about how we hold onto the past events and how they constantly resurface. "
    - Christian Gallichio, The Playlist
    "It’s a tender, wrenching, and beautifully made movie, and part of what’s revelatory about it is that it’s a story of boomers who are confronting the ravages of old age (disease and death, the waning of dreams), yet they’re doing it with a stubborn echo of the hopes and desires they had when they were younger. "
    - Owen Gleiberman, Variety
  • Gloria Bell

    6:00pm

    Gloria Bell
    • Starring: Julianne Moore, John Turturro, Jeanne Tripplehorn, Michael Cera, Rita Wilson
    • Director: Sebastián Lelio
    • Genre(s): Drama, Romance
    • Rating: R
    • Running Time: 102 min.
    "Sebastián Lelio’s remake of his 2013 Chilean movie ‘Gloria’ is, indeed, a glorious celebration of Julianne Moore at her peak. "
    - Sara Stewart, New York Post
    "This is a quiet film, moving at its own pace, reflecting life with such realism it’s as if we’re invisible guests in Gloria Bell’s life. And yet there’s something thrilling about watching such a great actress hitting all the right notes every step of the way. "
    - Richard Roeper, Chicago Sun-Times
    "A movie that says the stories of average women deserve to be told, as do the stories of people who grapple with big challenges but still face each day with hope and wonder. "
    - Chris Hewitt, Minneapolis Star Tribune
    "It really should be a Marvel-level event that Gloria Bell sees Moore adding to her L.A. pantheon in a major way. Don’t let the movie’s deceptively banal title fool you — this is as complete and full-bodied a performance as you’re likely to see all year. "
    - Joshua Rothkopf, Time Out
    "Chilean director Sebastián Lelio scores with his own English-language remake of his 2013 hit and Julianne Moore and John Turturro light up the screen as two fiftysomethings finding themselves on the L.A. dance-club scene. "
    - Peter Travers, Rolling Stone
    "Playing a divorcé who refuses to go quietly into the invisibility of middle age, Moore dances her way through this intimate dramedy like the queen her character is. "
    - Sara Stewart, New York Post
    "Extraordinary in its ordinariness, it’s an empathetic portrait of a life that women around the world are living every day but rarely get to see on screen. "
    - Katie Rife, AV Club
    "It’s a remarkably enjoyable movie, downright cathartic in its presentation of a three-dimensional character. "
    - Brian Tallerico, RogerEbert.com
  • The Mustang

    4:00pm, 8:15pm

    The Mustang
    • Starring: Connie Britton, Josh Stewart, Matthias Schoenaerts
    • Director: Laure de Clermont-Tonnerre
    • Genre(s): Drama
    • Rating: R
    • Running Time: 96 min.
    "You can’t help but be swept up by the sincerity here — that and the sight of a hard man softening to a sympathetic nuzzle. "
    - Joshua Rothkopf, Time Out
    "The director has a good eye for semidocumentary detail, and the performances… all have the sharp tang of authenticity. "
    - Peter Rainer, Christian Science Monitor
    "Whatever language he works in, Schoenaerts is a singular talent who can convincingly convey danger and menace as naturally as he breathes. "
    - Kenneth Turan, Los Angeles Times
    "It’s Schoenaerts, one of this generation’s finest actors, who makes “The Mustang” a moving look at human potential for redemption and rehabilitation. "
    - Sara Stewart, New York Post
    "It’s a touching and original piece of bare-bones sentimental humanism, and Schoenaerts is terrific in it. "
    - Owen Gleiberman, Variety
    "De Clermont-Tonnerre shows admirable restraint, knowing that, in her carefully constructed frames, it can be enough just to get Roman’s newly compassionate eyes into a close-up with the expressionless eye of a horse. "
    - John DeFore, Hollywood Reporter
    "Matthias Schoenaerts and a wild stallion try to tame each other in this stirring and poetic prison drama about a man and his horse. "
    - David Ehrlich, indieWire
    "This film was developed at Robert Redford’s Sundance Institute lab for emerging talent; he certainly found one in French actress Laure de Clermont-Tonnerre, here making an impressive feature directorial debut. "
    - Andrea Gronvall, Chicago Reader
    "That sophistication in filmmaking and storytelling wins out in the end. The answers don’t come easy, and when they do they’re more than a little heartbreaking. “The Mustang” is all the better for it. "
    - Barbara VanDenburgh, Arizona Republic
    "A testament to the worthy stories yet to be told about the healing, unbreakable bonds between tormented people and the misunderstood animals that come to their rescue. "
    - Tomris Laffly, RogerEbert.com
    "Filmmaker Laure de Clermont-Tonnerre’s story of a troubled convict (an incendiary, indelible Matthias Schoenaerts) bonding with a wild mustang is a striking debut. Each time you think you have this movie pegged, it’ll knock you for a loop. "
    - Peter Travers, Rolling Stone
    "First-time feature filmmaker Laure de Clermont-Tonnerre brings a gorgeous, wide-open sparseness to her visual storytelling (it makes sense that Robert Redford, the original Sundance Kid, is listed as an executive producer), but it’s largely Schoenaerts’ movie to carry. "
    - Leah Greenblatt, Entertainment Weekly
  • Staff Picks: Gosford Park (2001)

    12:30pm

    Staff Picks: Gosford Park (2001)
    • Starring: Maggie Smith, Ryan Phillippe, Michael Gambon, Kristin Scott Thomas
    • Director: Robert Altman
    • Genre(s): Drama, Mystery, Comedy
    • Rating: R
    • Running Time: 137 min.
    "Ranks among Robert Altman’s best work ever. "
    - Jonathan Foreman, New York Post
    "Robert Altman and a ridiculously talented group of English actors have crafted an upstairs-downstairs comedy of true originality — a British costume film that’s funny but not at all fusty. "
    - Carla Meyer, San Francisco Chronicle
    "Opulently designed, meticulously directed, cleverly written and wittily acted by a cast as polished as the floors. "
    - Rex Reed, Observer
    "A virtuoso ensemble piece to rival the director’s “Nashville” and “Short Cuts” in its masterly interweaving of multiple characters and subplots. "
    - Stephen Holden, New York Times
    "A love affair between performer and filmmaker. The director shows off his ardor by eliciting from his actors aspects of their gifts that they themselves may not have known they had. "
    - Peter Rainer, New York Magazine

Staff Picks: Zodiac (2007)

starts May 31

Staff Picks Series
Every month a member of the Moxie staff picks a film that impacted their lives and we put it up on the big screen.
May’s pick was made by Lindsey Hansen.
“I love this film because I am a bit of a true crime junkie. I feel like this film just kind of sucks you in and doesn’t let go. The suspense is present throughout the whole film. David Fincher executed this film beautifully, which is why I would love for people to get a chance to see it on a big screen if they weren’t able to previously.”

Free for Members

Summary: Based on the actual case files of one of the most intriguing unsolved crimes in the nation’s history, Zodiac is a thriller from David Fincher, director of “Seven” and “Fight Club.” As a serial killer terrifies the San Francisco Bay Area and taunts police with his ciphers and letters, investigators in four jurisdictions search for the murderer. The case will become an obsession for four men as their lives and careers are built and destroyed by the endless trail of clues. [Paramount Pictures]

Flash-forward to 1962: Jane (Bette Davis), decked out in garish chalk-white makeup, still lives with the invalid Blanche (Joan Crawford) in their decaying L.A. mansion. When Jane isn’t tormenting the helpless Blanche by serving her dead rats for breakfast, she is plotting and planning her showbiz comeback. Convinced that her days are numbered if she remains in the house with her addlepated sister, Blanche desperately tries to get away, but all avenues of escape are cut off by the deranged Jane.
