Critics’ choice

OCEANS EIGHTChanges things up with an all-female gang, but there’s a boyfriend angle, so even when women are running a multimillion-dollar con they have to make room for guy troubles, which is a drag. – Manohla Dargis, The NYTimesISLE OF DOGSWes Anderson’s ninth feature film (his second in stop-motion animation) is his wildest and waggiest yet, expanding his wondrous, inventive vision while retaining his meticulous compositions. – Jeffrey M Anderson, Common Sense MediaBRAVENBraven is a standard-order action/thriller with adequate performances, occasional bursts of tension, awful dialogue, and a minimal narrative. – James Berardinelli, ReelViewsON CHESIL BEACH
The material – playing with time, innocence, and sexuality – is strong, and the actors are game, but the movie is too long and relies on too much talk; it misses a chance to visualise the drama. – Jeffrey M Anderson, Common Sense Media
