Allied (War thriller, R, 2 hrs. 4 min., 2016)

A taut, tense thriller for its first half, this World War II film starring Brad Pitt and Marion Cotillard later becomes a weird hybrid of domestic drama and wartime intrigue that sometimes stretches credulity and veers close to unintentional humor. The highs are so impressive and the lows are so ... weird.


Moonlight (Drama, R, 1 hr. 50 min., 2016)

Gorgeous and yet bleak, uplifting and yet sobering, writer-director Barry Jenkins’ modern masterpiece chronicles pivotal periods in boyhood, adolescence and adulthood in the life and times of one person played by three skilled actors. This is a film brimming with memorable work.
