​'The Ferryman': Ephemeral Ideas, Eternal Tragedies

Staggeringly multi-layered, dangerously fast-paced and rich in characterizations, dialogue and context, Jez Butterworth's new hit about a family during the time of Ireland's the Troubles leaves the audience breathless, sweaty and tearful, in a nightmarish, dry-heaving haze.

Away We Go

Another movie about and/or aimed at educated, self-aware 20-and-30-somethings, a certain portion of which, of course, hate nothing more than a movie trying to entertain them or depict them in any way.

Various Artists: Away We Go

For those who have been following Alexi Murdoch, Away We Go is essentially his debut album repackaged with some other songs thrown in. For everyone else: It's a wonderful, breezy collection of big-hearted singer-songwriter numbers.

Away We Go

Away We Go is breezy and summer-appropriate -- but its central couple still has problems.

Away We Go: Home Sweet Wherever

A finely pedigreed comic road film that, when all is said and done, is too finely-tooled for the NPR set to have much life left in it.

Jarhead (2005)

Jarhead doesn't lose sight of this basic truth of war. More effective weapons only deepen its despair.

Road to Perdition (2002)

The perfectly grim surface evokes eons of pain, as well as a highly stylized contemporary sensibility, not so much cynical as skeptical and self-aware.
