rated-thumbs-UP+DOWN_2
A sausage strives to discover the truth about his existence.

Summary: Life is good for all the food items that occupy the shelves at the local supermarket. Frank (Seth Rogen) the sausage, Brenda (Kristen Wiig) the hot dog bun, Teresa Taco and Sammy Bagel Jr. (Edward Norton) can’t wait to go home with a happy customer. Soon, their world comes crashing down as poor Frank learns the horrifying truth that he will eventually become a meal. After warning his pals about their similar fate, the panicked perishables devise a plan to escape from their human enemies.

Directors:

Greg Tiernan | Conrad Vernon

Stars:

Seth Rogen, Kristen Wiig, Jonah Hill, Alistair Abell

Watch Trailer:

USA Today
Brian Truitt
Packed with surprising depth as it utilizes complete lunacy and clever bites to cobble together something wholly different in the cartoon space, even though at times the wacky film does itself a disservice by aiming for shocks rather than smarts.

THE BUZZ: Every major studio has an actor and/or director who seems to be able to make whatever project they choose; Seth Rogen certainly has sway at Sony, where he and his screenwriting pals enlisted animation vets Greg Tiernan (“Thomas & Friends”) and Conrad Vernon (Shrek 2) to helm the R-rated comedy we didn’t realize we needed so badly in our lives.

Café Society (2016)

Café Society

  • Lionsgate

 rated-PG13   –   Comedy | Drama | Romance

rated-thumbs-UP+DOWN_2
In the 1930s, a young Bronx native moves to Hollywood where he falls in love with the secretary of his powerful uncle, an agent to the stars. After returning to New York, he is swept up in the vibrant world of high society nightclub life.

Summary: A young man (Jesse Eisenberg) arrives in Hollywood during the 1930s hoping to work in the film industry. There, he falls in love, and finds himself swept up in the vibrant café society that defined the spirit of the age.

Director:

Woody Allen

Stars:

Jesse Eisenberg, Kristen Stewart, Steve Carell, Blake Lively

Watch Trailer:

The Guardian
Peter Bradshaw
Woody Allen’s Café Society is a sweet, sad, insubstantial jeu d’ésprit, watchable, charming and beautifully shot by Vittorio Storaro – yet always freighted by a pedantic nostalgia for the 1930s golden age in both Hollywood and New York, nostalgia which the title itself rather coercively announces.

THE BUZZ: After the box-office disappointment that was Hail, Caesar!, let’s see if older audiences are in the mood for Woody Allen’s take on a period Hollywood comedy. Reportedly beautiful to look act, acting-wise, we hear Kristen Stewart walks away with the film (unsurprisingly). Though the real winner might be Blake Lively, who turns in a supporting role here while her thriller The Shallows becomes the sleeper hit of the season.

The 9th Life of Louis Drax (2016)

The 9th Life of Louis Drax

  • Miramax

 rated-R   –   Mystery | Thriller

 rated-thumbs-UP+DOWN_2
A psychologist who begins working with a young boy who has suffered a near-fatal fall finds himself drawn into a mystery that tests the boundaries of fantasy and reality.

Summary: After surviving eight near-death accidents throughout his unlucky life, Louis Drax (Aiden Longworth) plunges off a steep cliff on his ninth birthday. While police investigate the cause of Louis’ near-fatal fall and the whereabouts of his violent father Peter (Aaron Paul), acclaimed neurologist Dr. Allan Pascal (Jamie Dornan) uses unorthodox techniques to try to tap into the boy’s unconscious mind and reveal the truth about the events that led to his condition. But as he’s drawn deeper and deeper into the mystery of Louis’ seeming ability to cheat death, the doctor finds himself falling for Louis’ mother, Natalie (Sarah Gadon). As new clues emerge in the case, a shocking revelation changes the fates of Louis Drax and everyone around him.

Equity (2016)

Equity

  • Sony Pictures Classics

 rated-R   –   Drama

rated-thumbs-UP+DOWN_2
Senior investment banker Naomi Bishop is threatened by a financial scandal and must untangle a web of corruption.

Summary: When Senior investment banker Naomi Bishop (Anna Gunn) is passed over for a promotion at her firm, she fights for the opportunity to take a start-up public, hoping this promising IPO will secure her a place at the firm’s highest level. But when an employee at the start-up raises questions about a possible crack in the company’s walls, Naomi must decide whether to investigate rumors that may compromise the deal, or push forward with the confidence her superiors expect.

Director:

Meera Menon

Stars:

Anna Gunn, James Purefoy, Sarah Megan Thomas, Alysia Reiner

Watch Trailer:

Los Angeles Times
Sheri Linden
The screenplay by Amy Fox is mechanical, the plot more contrived than charged under Meera Menon’s lackluster direction. But as a study of endurance and self-preservation in the face of persistent double standards, the movie clicks.

THE BUZZ: In her first major role since “Breaking Bad” wrapped, Anna Gunn consumes and savors every line of dialogue in the promising trailer for this Wall Street thriller. Looks like Gunn will be psychosexually involved with James Purefoy (jealous) and cat-and-moused by the generally underutilized Alysia Reiner, who plays a state attorney and old friend of Gunn’s character.

Reiner, along with supporting actress Sarah Megan Thomas, are two of the principals in the recently formed production/distribution company Broad Street Pictures, adding some realness to these proceedings.

Naam Hai Akira (2016)

Naam Hai Akira

  • Fox STAR Studios

  –   Action | Crime | Drama

 rated-thumbs-UP+DOWN_2

rated-thumbs-UPA philosophy teacher soldiers through the death of her mother, getting fired from her job, and dealing with a husband who is cheating on her.
Director:

Mia Hansen-Løve

Stars:

Isabelle Huppert, André Marcon, Roman Kolinka, Edith Scob

Watch Trailer:

Guy Lodge
Huppert is such a persistently and prolifically rigorous performer that she risks being taken for granted in some of her vehicles, but this is major, many-shaded work even by her lofty standards.
