'Manchester by the Sea' is one of the year's best films

With “Manchester by the Sea,” writer-director Kenneth Lonergan (“You Can Count on Me”) confirms his status as a major American filmmaker. Lonergan made his reputation as a playwright, but he understands what works — and what doesn’t work — in film. His skill at delineating characters and placing them in situations that get to the essence of their dreams and disappointments is breathtaking, and he has a way of eliciting sheer brilliance from actors.

Affleck delivers his most compelling performance since his Oscar-nominated turn in “The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford.” And as Randi, Williams is poignantly memorable.

“Manchester by the Sea” is one of the best films of the year.

'Allied' is a stylish romantic thriller

An old-fashioned film that slyly nods to contemporary sensibilities, “Allied” is an engaging showcase for Pitt and Cotillard. Working from a screenplay by Steven Knight (“Eastern Promises”), director Robert Zemeckis (“Flight”) delivers a romantic thriller that’s reminiscent of those that were made during the period in which it’s set.

Pitt is fine as a guy who wants to do the right thing but wants Marianne even more. And Cotillard, who couldn’t be more perfectly cast as a femme fatale, brilliantly keeps us guessing about her character’s true motives.

Some moviegoers may find “Allied” too different from the usual multiplex fare. But those who are capable of appreciating the virtues of classic moviemaking will be swept away.
