Annette Bening does Chekov, Melissa McCarthy goes back to college and DOXA offers up another gem

Or you could catch a colorful and bloody revenge thriller and a cryptic Alberta gothic

Finding help for a new mother, battling a rich creep and cruising the big issues in DOXA’s documentaries

The Avengers are still hogging the audience. That’s why there are only two new films to write about this week, and this unexpected plus: extra space to consider some of the documentaries playing at...

A whole mob of Avengers, a master horse handler and a look-ahead to DOXA and Harry Rankin

Also: Joan of Arc as you’ve never seen her before, unruly Caravaggio, creepy doings at a commune and an urgent call to save the earth

Joaquin’s raging revenge, Amy’s fight against body shaming and a different boy-and-horse yarn

Also surveillance in a love story, a speculation on a Canadian indigenous mystery, Supertroopers making jokes about Canada and a mistep into the spy genre by Wim Wenders

Another big one for The Rock, Jon Hamm’s dip into Middle Eastern strife and drama in and after residential schools

Also a calming visit to a Buddhist retreat, a legendary tennis match and seniors proclaiming “It’s never too late.”

Emily Blunt in a scary Quiet Place; Jason Clarke as hapless Ted Kennedy and soldiers turning bitter in World War I

Also bizarre encounters with an eccentric artist and reviving a girl’s volleyball team after tragedy

A dog lover’s cinematic delight, Spielberg’s dip back into the 1980s and another expose of a financial racket

Also the emotional life story of a BC slam poet, and three new films from France (one about the country our peacekeepers are going to)

Three very good films reviewed: The Death of Stalin, Foxtrot and Unsane

And good or bad, these others: Sherlock Gnomes, Pacific Rim Uprising, Young Karl Marx, Paradox, Madame. Plus two merely mentioned

Lara Croft tries the movies again, Russia takes a cinematic slap, Donald and Helen go RVing

Also a groundbreaking film for gay teens, a poignant East-West crossover, power in modern Europe and a legendary Israeli response to highjacking

Oprah graces A Wrinkle in Time, our city stars in Meditation Park and a sharp new director helms Thoroughbreds

Also Trump won’t like the Mexican criminals in Gringo; people will cower when The Strangers Prey at Night and few know anything about The Hurricane Heist
