DARK RIVER ★★½☆☆
D: Clio Barnard (The Selfish Giant, The Arbor).
S: Ruth Wilson, Mark Stanley, Joe Dempsie, Sean Bean.

Disappointing from the director of THE ARBOR and THE SELFISH GIANT. Pales in comparison to TYRANNOSAUR.

TRAGEDY GIRLS ★★★½☆
D: Tyler MacIntyre.
S: Brianna Hildebrand, Alexandra Shipp, Craig Robinson, Josh Hutcherson, Nicky Whelan, Jack Quaid, Kevin Durand.

In an ocean of mediocre horror flicks, this largely shows how it can be done.

THE VILLAINESS ★★½☆☆
D: Byung-gil Jung.
S: Ok-bin Kim, Ha-kyun Shin, Jun Sung, Seo-hyeong Kim.

What a mess of an action movie.

WALKING OUT ★★½☆☆
Ds: Alex Smith, Adam Smith (The Slaughter Rule).
S: Matt Bomer, Josh Wiggins, Bill Pullman, Alex Neustaedter, Lily Gladstone.

A slightly hokey TV movie of the week, fathers and sons melodrama, set in the wilderness.

68 KILL ★★★½☆
D: Trent Haaga.
S: Matthew Gray Gubler, AnnaLynne McCord, Alisha Boe, Sheila Vand, Sam Eidson, David Maldonado, Eric Podnar, Hallie Grace Bradley.

Refreshing role reversal and hilarious mayhem.

INSYRIATED ★★★☆☆
D: Philippe Van Leeuw.

The war in Syria from the perspective of a house under siege.

CROWN HEIGHTS ★★★½☆
D: Matt Ruskin.
S: Lakeith Stanfield, Nnamdi Asomugha, Natalie Paul, Bill Camp, Nestor Carbonell, Amari Cheatom, Josh Pais, Bryan Tyree Henry.

Catalogues a rotten justice system, but uncomfortably condenses decades into 94 minutes.

BUSHWICK ★★☆☆☆
Ds: Cary Murnion, Jonathan Millot (Cooties).
S: Dave Bautista, Brittany Snow, Angelic Zambrana, Jeremie Harris, Myra Lucretia Taylor, Arturo Castro.

This would be a pretty dope action movie, if not for the weird racial stuff going on.

BITCH ★★½☆☆
D: Marianna Palka (Always Worthy, Good Dick).
S: Jason Ritter, Jaime King, Marianna Palka, Sol Rodriguez, Roger Guenveur Smith.

Looks at the frustrations many women face in family life, but does so in a heavy-handed way.

PATTI CAKE$ ★★★☆☆
D: Geremy Jasper.
S: Danielle Macdonald, Siddharth Dhananjay, Mamoudou Athie, Bridget Everett, Cathy Moriarty.

Aspirational, multi-cultural and socially conscious. A shame then that the plot is too formulaic.
