Up To Date's Indie, Foreign & Doc Critics' 'Three To See,' July 3-6

'Dope' is on Cynthia Haines' list this week.

Whether you're in the mood for a senior citizen romance or set on a journey to the 17th century, Up to Date's indie, foreign and documentary film critics can help you navigate the many movie listings to find one that fits you.

Cynthia Haines

Wolfpack, R

  • The kinds of films he showed his kids was kind of strange since the reason he was keeping his kids locked up was to avoid the drugs and violence of New York City. My question was, "How much of this really was true?"

Dope, R

  • I’m really sad that the movie is rated R. This is a film for young teenagers, and they’re not allowed to see it. I think parents ought to go see it with their kids and ask questions afterwards.

Ex Machina, R

  • A computer programmer is hired to test a new form of artificial intelligence.

Steve Walker

I'll See You in My Dreams, PG-13

  • A luminous Blythe Danner reluctantly welcomes companionship.

A Little Chaos, R

  • Feminist landscape architect played by Kate Winslet shakes up, then beautifies, Louis XIV's Versailles

Me and Earl and the Dying Girl, PG-13

  • Affecting story of a teenage boy's visits to a classmate with leukemia

Our critics' guilty pleasure picks of the week:
Cynthia: Spy

Steve: Mad Max
