A New Day Dawns

Hello! This week at NOW, we’re inaugurating a comprehensive rundown of the week’s releases, not unlike the thing I’ve been doing here for the last twelve years.

In fact, it’s exactly what I’ve been doing here for the last twelve years, so you can read it there … or you can stick around and we can play the six-word game here.

The Death (and Life) of Carl Naardlinger: Mildly existential comedy, made right here!

Filmworker: Kubrick’s factotum finally gets the spotlight.

Gauguin: Master painter creeps on young girl.

Hotel Transylvania 3: Drac is back! Your kids care.

The King: All of America, in Elvis’ car.

Luk’Luk’I: The short films were much sharper.

Mary Shelley: A biopic less interesting than Frankenstein. [Susan]

Skyscraper: Die Hard is a masterpiece. Don’t.

Sorry to Bother You: Holy shitballs, you guys. Holy shitballs.

Three Identical Strangers: A story much stranger than fiction. [Jose]

Whitney: The family’s approval makes things muddier. [Chris]

Oh, and come back on Sunday for something else. I would tell you what it is, but technically I’m not even allowed to acknowledge it exists! Aren’t embargoes fun?
