The Last Word

Even if Ms. MacLaine should decide never to act again, this movie is a fitting tribute to her splendid career.

The LEGO Batman Movie

While it will likely challenge in other areas, this endearing little film could very well win next year’s Oscar in the animated film category.

Paterson

I loved Mr. Jarmusch’s romantic vampire film Only Lovers Left Alive (2013), and this one dances in the same category.
