  • She's Gotta Have It

    She's Gotta Have It

    Likely for fans of: keeping it in the family, purposeful sex scenes, honest and varied depictions of non-Whites, feminism, The Wizard of Oz, mockumentaries, Spike Lee, older films that would still be controversial in today's social and political climate.

    Unlikely for: those who want more 'color' and less 'coloreds' in their films, the Alt-Right, expired Hostess snack cakes, erectile dysfunction-havers, those who might argue that this film is too much like an art project than a cohesive narrative.

    Rating: More than meets the eye.

  • New Nightmare

    New Nightmare

    Likely for fans of: the Nightmare series, Welch's Grape Juice, Scream 3, third-degree burns, plot holes, wooden acting, Wes Craven's house?, promising ideas weighed down with overall heavy-handedness or dropped completely, insomniac conspiracy theorists.

    Unlikely for: hard-to-scare skeptics, tyrannosaurus dolls, Jenga towers, those who prefer less bombastic soundtracks in their horror films, Princess Celestia, amputees, anyone unfamiliar with the Nightmare series' progression from straight horror to campy numnums.

    Rating: "Let Down" by Radiohead.

  • Me and You and Everyone We Know

    Me and You and Everyone We Know

    Likely for fans of: humanist ensemble films, nobody hurting each other, killer soundtracks, philosophy, Todd Solondz, awkward laughter and vivid tears, warm wet jimmy ha-has, realistic explorations of sexual topics by minors, Miranda July.

    Unlikely for: adrenaline junkies, killers of children, those allergic to pink, Donald Trump, all those who believe that a film title should not exceed five words unless it's a sequel or from a foreign country, corpses lacking the ability to reanimate themselves.

    Rating: #ChangeTheWorld.
