This Week, Part 2 (Dec. 25-27, 2015)

Because of embargoes, a lot of our critics aren’t able to share links with you until release day. Here are some last-minute reviews for this weekend’s upcoming films. We’ve kept in all the reviews posted yesterday as well so you can have more help in deciding what to see (if you haven’t already).

Our critics have been hard at work reviewing the latest films. Here is a look at what’s coming out this weekend (in select cities, check your local listings) and what else may be in theaters right now.

Dilwale

Kathy Gibson @ Access Bollywood

Dreamcatcher

Matthew McKernan @ FilmWhinge

  • Excerpt: It is an urgent and thoroughly moving film that bears witness and gives hope. Find it and see it.

Dreams Rewired

Jason Bailey @ Flavorwire

  • Excerpt: Bound by the sprung rhythms of Swinton’s intonations, they end up with a brief history of communication, technology, fantasy, and propaganda, by tracing the vehicles of those ideas: the film strip, the phonograph, the radio, the telegraph, the telephone, the television, and, ultimately, the computer. It’s a marvel of montage, charming and bizarre and frequently funny, thanks in no small part to the good humor of our narrator.

Extraction

Sarah Gopaul @ Digital Journal

  • Excerpt: ‘Extraction’ is a conventional rogue agent narrative in which a son searches for his M.I.A. father with the help of a more noteworthy female operative.

Mojin: The Lost Legend

Mark Dujsik @ RogerEbert.com

  • Excerpt: Come for the murky action, and stay for the shudder-inducing feeling of nostalgia for Mao’s Cultural Revolution. It’s a very odd movie, indeed.

Nasty Baby

Laura Clifford @ Reeling Reviews

  • Excerpt: as in his criminally underseen “Magic, Magic,” there is a strong sense of foreboding all along, Silva littering his story with clues that this just may be an unholy alliance.
