Carlos (Criterion) — Olivier Assayas’s globetrotting Carlos is among the most in-depth, fully-realized character studies in recent years, and not just because of its marathon runtime of five-and-a-half hours. As the infamous title terrorist, Edgar Ramirez packs so many nuanced gestures—with his eyes, with his hands—into any given minute that we almost don’t need to hear him speak. And that’s just the beginning of Michael Nordine’s excellent review, the rest of which you can read right here. Available on DVD and Blu-ray.

Transformers: Dark of the Moon (Paramount) — Okay, who am I kidding. I have no desire to see this especially now that it would be on the small screen, but apparently Michael Bay is a misunderstood auteur genius so we should probably include him here, right?
