    Eternals

    ★★★★★

    A contemporary epic built both on the myths of its audience and the stories of its own universe, Chloé Zhao's "Eternals" is a sumptuously crafted and thrilling piece of blockbuster filmmaking. Vastly entertaining and meaningful, Zhao's film instantly earns of place in the uppermost tier of its canon and lands as one of the year's best.

    Elvis

    ★★★★½

    Serving up the life and times of the King of Rock and Roll with vast, mythic vigor and surprising, immediate intimacy, Baz Luhrmann's "Elvis" is both a finger-snapping bolt of cinematic energy and a completely encompassing American tragedy. Deliciously executed and presented, Luhrmann provides his audience a high-gloss and human biography of a landmark star.

    Whipping through the life story of Elvis A. Presley, Luhrmann's film touches on the cultural, artistic, and political winds that moved the man who would…

  • A Stalker in the House

    A Stalker in the House

    ★★

    Selling out its plot with its title, "A Stalker in the House" is a cable-quality thriller about an online date that refuses to take no for an answer. The work is both overcooked and underdone, reaching to be trashy fun and coming within a whisker of success. The results are hollow, but the experience is not entirely empty.

    Inception

    ★★★★★

    "Inception," at its most basic, is two things. It is a heist film dressed in science fiction conventions; and it is a study of a man trying to free himself from a near-suffocating past. "Inception," at its more complex, is a cerebral pop-masterpiece. It is an enthralling combination of thought-provoking, layered story-telling and sumptuous aesthetics enhanced by near-flawless editing, sound design, effects, and musical score. Driven by a pitch-perfect cast and the confident directorial hand of Christopher Nolan, "Inception" is a brilliant and unrivaled piece of filmmaking.

  • A Clockwork Orange

    A Clockwork Orange

    ★★★★½

    An audacious blend of imagery and allegory, Stanley Kubrick's "A Clockwork Orange" is a film that may take multiple viewings to fully appreciate. On first viewing, however, the film bursts with colors, shapes, and a searing observation of the battle between youth culture and adult stolidity. Kubrick's film, based on the novel by Anthony Burgess, is a striking and layered piece of work.

    The plot of "A Clockwork Orange" revolves around Malcolm McDowell's Alex, the quintessential hooligan concerned with all…
