Earlier this month, two climbers, Tommy Caldwell and Kevin Jorgeson, scaled El Capitan in Yosemite National Park. At 900 meters, these two free-climbers certainly needed a sure-footing. You'll see why when you check out this photo sphere taken during their climb!

Girlhood Poster

Girlhood

Review by Sheila O'Malley

What CĂ©line Sciamma is interested in is "moments." There are many moments that linger in the mind long after the film has ended.

Timbuktu Poster

Timbuktu

Review by Glenn Kenny

A work of almost breathtaking visual beauty that manages to ravish the heart while dazzling the eye simultaneously, neither at the expense of the other.

The Loft Poster

The Loft

Review by Peter Sobczynski

The Loft is a film that seems to have been designed specifically to appear in empty theaters in the dead of January.

Hard to Be a God Poster

Hard to Be a God

Review by Glenn Kenny

Hard To Be A God, the final film by the inspired Russian director Alexei German, is not only an unforgettable individual masterpiece but probably one of the capital-G Great Films.

Wild Card Poster

Wild Card

Review by Odie Henderson

Statham's fight scenes have their predictable, violent payoffs, but his rambling monologues are unexpectedly, gloriously entertaining.

The Devil's Violinist Poster

The Devil's Violinist

Review by Simon Abrams

The Devil's Violinist is the kind of movie that constantly threatens to blow up, but is just too holistically engaging to ever fall apart.

Project Almanac Poster

Project Almanac

Review by Susan Wloszczyna

The sci-fi flick does a convincing job as a reminder that the time has come to finally tell the found-footage genre to get lost. Just pick up your unsteady handheld camera and go already.

Amira & Sam Poster

Amira & Sam

Review by Mark Dujsik

When the eponymous couple is together, Amira & Sam is an earnest and considerate examination of two people falling in love, but the movie lacks certainty when handling these characters separately.

Black or White Poster

Black or White

Review by Matt Zoller Seitz

This racially charged domestic drama about a custody battle over a mixed-race child is painfully honest but also painful—and not in a good way.

Son of a Gun Poster

Son of a Gun

Review by Scout Tafoya

Avery's more than capable behind the camera, he just needs to be met halfway by his screenwriting, which dwells in overly familiar territory.
