Deep Red


In Brief: Dario Argento may well be something of an acquired taste, but there's no better place to start for the uninitiated than his giallo masterpiece, 1973's Deep Red (Profondo Rosso). While it may not be as surrealistically inclined as some of Argento's later work, that makes for a more accessible narrative — and it's still…

In Brief: Buster Keaton's Our Hospitality (1923) may not be one of his best-known, but that doesn't mean it isn't one of his best.

Starring: Taraji P. Henson, Josh Brener, Erykah Badu, Aldis Hodge

Starring: Taylor Schilling, Jackson Robert Scott, Colm Feore, Brittany Allen, Peter Mooney

Miss Bala


The Story: A beauty pageant contestant is kidnapped by a Mexican drug cartel to move money and product across the border. The Lowdown: The rare remake that makes you wish the original had never existed.
