OK, you’ve had your fun, at least some of you, with Baby Driver, so now it’s back to serious business. And here’s Al Gore picking up where he left off in Inconvenient Truth, connecting the dots–Zika, Hurricane Sandy, etc.—in this hard-hitting follow-up. Although Hollywood has produced scarier disaster epics, the novelty of this one is that it happens to be a documentary, and the shots of the Hudson River surging through Wall Street during Sandy and inundating the 9/11 memorial, as the Sequel’s predecessor predicted, are enough to make you reach for your life jacket.—Peter Biskind

Among “Spider-Man, a simian…and Charlize Theron as a sexy Cole War-era superspy, it says somethng that one of the most compelling characters is Al Gore.”—Ben Kenigsberg, New York Times

“The movie is a piece of advocacy, and it succeeds at that: The conclusive science presented is powerful evidence that there is only one side to this story.”—Charles Taylor, Newsweek

“…Gore’s workmanlike methods are both fascinating, encouraging, and, yes, even a little exciting.”—New York Magazine

Maudie is a true-life story based on the career of a Canadian outsider artist who achieved fame and fortune despite the juvenile arthritis that nearly cripples her hands. It is also an unlikely romance between two difficult and closed people, Maud and her employer, Ethan Hawke. Sally Hawkins plays Maud, and gives the year’s best performance by an actress.

“Maudie is a work of art.”—Calvin Wilson, St. Louis Post Dispatch

The movie’s “charm resides in the effortless grace with which Hawkins – giving one of the best performances of the year – takes to the character, playing every physical tic and emotional key with quiet intensity.”—Joey Nolfi, Entertainment Weekly

“A portrait of the artist as a hermit wife that overcomes some clunky early brushstrokes to achieve a genuine grace and considerable poignancy.”—Robert Abele, Los Angeles Times
