The Old Man & the Gun (2018)

5 oldmanandgun blu jma 20th Century Fox

Robert Redford announced that this would be his final acting role; whether or not that statement turns out to be true, The Old Man & the Gun is one beautifully perfect final bow. He plays Forrest Tucker, a lifelong criminal who now robs banks with his fake mustache, hat, and his kind demeanor (his victims tell police he “seemed like a nice guy”).

Sissy Spacek plays his romantic interest (amazingly, it’s Spacek and Redford’s first film together, and they’re delightful), and Tom Waits and Danny Glover play his partners in crime. Writer/director David Lowery (Pete’s Dragon, A Ghost Story) crafts this true story with his trademark quiet, dreamy touch, nestling gently within moments rather than skimming over the surface.

The Sisters Brothers (2018)

6 sistersbrothers blu jma 20th Century Fox

John C. Reilly optioned the novel by Patrick DeWitt and cast himself as the pragmatic Eli Sisters, one of a pair of hired killers in the Western The Sisters Brothers. The other brother is the drunken, loose-cannon Charlie (Joaquin Phoenix). Their boss, the Commodore, hires them to catch an inventor named Hermann Warm (Riz Ahmed). At the same time, an educated investigator, John Morris (Jake Gyllenhaal), is also after Warm.

When they all meet and discover what it is that Warm has invented, they decide to team up. It’s a strange story, swinging from brutal violence to soft moments of men revealing their innermost hearts, but it’s unique and compelling. It’s the assured English-language debut by acclaimed French director Jacques Audiard (Read My Lips, A Prophet, Rust and Bone).

Suspiria (2018)

7 suspiria blu jma Lionsgate

This remake of Dario Argento’s 1977 horror classic goes on quite a bit longer and loses its way well before the end, but the 2018 version of Suspiria contains some powerful, startling imagery that’s hard to dismiss, or forget.

Tilda Swinton gives a truly amazing performance that more people ought to be talking about. The Oscar-nominated Luca Guadagnino (Call Me by Your Name) directs this story of a young dancer Susie Bannion (Dakota Johnson) who attends a prestigious dance academy in Berlin, where strange things are happening. Chloë Grace Moretz appears as a freaked-out dancer whose disappearance opens a slot for Susie.

Widows (2018)

8 widows blu jma 20th Century Fox

After three severe, mature films (Hunger, Shame, 12 Years a Slave), filmmaker Steve McQueen teams with crime writer Gillian Flynn for a lighter entertainment with Widows. Unfortunately, he’s unable to loosen up and have a little fun, and, despite scenes that could have been exhilarating or empowering, the movie is a bit glum. But it looks terrific and has a great, impressive cast.

Viola Davis, Michelle Rodriguez, and Elizabeth Debicki are the widows; their husbands were killed in a heist and now they owe $2 million to a shady politician and his murderous crew. Cynthia Erivo, Colin Farrell, Daniel Kaluuya, Jacki Weaver, Robert Duvall, Liam Neeson, and many others co-star.

The Wife (2018)

9 wife blu jma Sony Pictures

Glenn Close has won a batch of awards for her leading performance in The Wife, but was denied an Academy Award (Olivia Colman took the Oscar for her role as the Queen of England in The Favourite). Close plays Joan Castleman, the wife of novelist Joseph (Jonathan Pryce), who has just won the Nobel Prize for Literature. The family—including grown son and aspiring writer David (Max Irons)—are off to Stockholm for the ceremony, where Joan re-evaluates her life.

Based on a novel by Meg Wolitzer, the movie is a bit gimmicky and precious about the art of writing; it saves a “twist” for the midpoint, and uses younger actors in flashback, when a more direct approach might have been more intimate and revealing. Still, Close is excellent, and so is Christian Slater in a supporting role as a pesky biographer.
