  • The Gold Rush (NR)

  • Golden Door

    Italian writer-director Emanuele Crialese is best known for the art-house piffle Respiro (2002), a sun-kissed fairy tale that didn't prepare me for the weight and solidity of this historical drama about a Sicilian peasant family immigrating to the U.S. The folkloric tone that seemed so pretentious in the earlier movie is powerfully effective here, as Crialese conveys the dark superstitions of the Old World and the family's absurd fantasies about the new one (lakes of fresh milk, vegetables as big as people). more...

  • Gomorrah (NR)

    This Italian crime saga opens with a Godfather-style set piece in which three hoods are assassinated in the gleaming blue light of a tanning salon, which culminates in serial close-ups of their purple-spattered corpses. more...
  • Gone Baby Gone

    “I always thought it was the things you don't choose that make you who you are,” declares the narrator at the opening of this powerful mystery, words that turn out to be hauntingly prophetic. more...
  • Gonzo: The Life and Work of Dr. Hunter S. Thompson

    Alex Gibney (Taxi to the Dark Side, Enron: The Smartest Guys in the Room) sets out to rescue gonzo journalist Hunter Thompson from his cartoonish persona, and this hugely entertaining documentary returns the focus to his writing in all its force, precision, and moral clarity. more...
