  • The Gallows
  • The Gallows (R)

    The fictitious high school play The Gallows isn't very good, judging from what we see of it during the real horror movie The Gallows. more...
  • Get Him to the Greek (R)

    When your parents saw this movie, it was called My Favorite Year (1982) and concerned a young TV writer in the 1950s who's ordered to chaperone a drunken, washed-up matinee idol (Peter O'Toole) through the rehearsal and live broadcast of a prime-time variety show. more...
  • Ghost World (R)

    Terry Zwigoff (Crumb) brilliantly negotiates the shift to fiction filmmaking in a very personal adaptation of the Daniel Clowes comic book, which either captures with uncanny precision what it's like to be a teenage girl in this country or fooled me utterly into thinking it does. more...
  • The Gift
  • The Gift (R)

    This cagey suspense film was originally called "Weirdo," but the ultimate release title, bland as it might seem, is actually closer to the mark: the story is like one of those gift-wrapped boxes with another box inside, and another inside that one. more...
  • The Girl From Monaco (R)

    A high-powered defense attorney (Fabrice Luchini) and the bodyguard assigned to him during a murder trial (Roschdy Zem) clash over a beautiful, salacious TV weather announcer (Louise Bourgoin) in this frequently hilarious bedroom comedy by the cagey French writer-director Anne Fontaine (How I Killed My Father). more...
  • Gleason
  • Gleason (R)

    Diagnosed with ALS in 2011, former NFL player Steve Gleason agreed to let filmmaker Clay Tweel document his battle with the disease, partly so his newborn son would have a record of him before he lost the ability to speak. more...
  • Gloria
  • Gloria (R)

    A giant white peacock fills the frame late in this superb Chilean comedy, startling the title character and aptly symbolizing the way director Sebastian Lelio has fanned her open as a personality. more...
  • The Godfather, Part II (R)

    Three hours and 20 minutes of Al Pacino suffering openly, Robert Duvall suffering silently, Diane Keaton suffering noisily, and (every so often) Robert De Niro suffering good-naturedly is almost too much, but Francis Ford Coppola pulls it off in grand style. more...
  • Going the Distance (R)

    A San Francisco journalism student (Drew Barrymore) captures the heart of a commitment-phobic New York record promoter (Justin Long), who's forced to choose between her and his male pals after their affair turns long-distance. more...
  • Good Kill
  • Good Kill (R)

    With such films as Gattaca (1997), S1m0ne (2002), and In Time (2011), writer-director Andrew Niccol has employed sci-fi premises to comment obliquely on contemporary issues; in this docudrama he provocatively depicts drone warfare as a real-life sci-fi horror. more...
  • The Good, the Bad and the Ugly (R)

    Sergio Leone's comic, cynical, inexplicably moving epic spaghetti western (1966), in which all human motivation has been reduced to greed—it's just a matter of degree between the Good (Clint Eastwood), the Bad (Lee Van Cleef), and the Ugly (Eli Wallach). more...
  • Goodbye Solo (R)

    Born in North Carolina to Iranian parents, Ramin Bahrani has carved out a peculiar space for himself with stories of immigrants living on the margins of American society: in Man Push Cart (2005) a former Pakistani pop singer peddles coffee and bagels on the streets of New York City, and in Chop Shop (2007) two Puerto Rican children hustle to get by in the scrap yards and auto shops near Shea Stadium. more...
  • GoodFellas (R)

    Martin Scorsese collaborated with Nicholas Pileggi on this 1990 adaptation of Wiseguy, Pileggi's nonfiction book about gangsters in Brooklyn, and in terms of narrative fluidity it may well be the most accomplished thing Scorsese's ever done. more...
