New movie releases for the weekend of October 28
New releases: "Michael Moore in Trumpland"
Moore's October surprise arrived at the Gateway Film Center this week. The filmed version of his one-man-show, which took place earlier this month in Ohio, actually aims to bridge the divide of this election."Certain Women"
A story of three women (Kristen Stewart, Laura Dern, Michelle Williams) whose tales intersect in small-town America, this is the latest film from the superb Kelly Reichardt ("Meek's Cutoff").Limited screenings: "Halloween"
Honestly, what could be better than "Halloween" on Halloween? John Carpenter's 1978 slasher classic is still an all-time great. It screens at 9:30 p.m. on Monday, Oct. 31, at the GFC. Come early for a meetup of the horror aficionado group Killumbus.Alive recommends: "American Honey"
This coming-of-age tale is like "Kids" meets "Salesman." It clocks in at nearly three hours, but it has a flow all its own. Wildly original and one of the year's best. (4 stars)"The Girl on the Train"
The best-selling whodunit novel is elevated past its pulpy roots by a superb lead performance from Emily Blunt. Like "Gone Girl" gone good. (3 stars)Also in theaters: "Jack Reacher: Never Go Back"
Tom Cruise returns in this long-awaited (?) sequel to the 2012 actioner. This unseasonably warm weather is a pretty good setup for a summer blockbuster-esque popcorn flick like this."Keeping Up with the Joneses"
A suburban couple (Isla Fisher and Zach Galifianakis) gets caught up in international espionage when a debonair couple (Jon Hamm and Gal Gadot) moves into the neighborhood. Hilarity ensues."The Accountant"
Ben Affleck plays an autistic accountant who is also an action star in this bizarrely self-serious action flick. (2½ stars)
