Tom Hiddleston

Kong is big but unremarkable, Window Horses is diverse and whimsical and The Last Word welcomes back Shirley MacLaine

And notice especially the passionate defense of journalistic courage in All Governments Lie

The Boss is crass and Everybody Wants Some pleases but Hank Williams gets a bland bio pic

Also a thriller from Argentina, The Clan, a strange form of recovery from grief, Demolition, and a rigorous look at right-wing media, The Brainwashing of My Dad

New at the movies: cool vampires, harsh war memories, cold revenge and the Holocaust, too

Tilda Swinton, Colin Firth and the lesser-known Macon Blair star in the week’s most interesting fictional movies.
