  • Blackhat (R)

    Michael Mann's latest crime saga involves the timely topic of cyberterrorism, but aside from the special-effects shots of data zipping around a silicon chip as if it were the Autobahn, this doesn't function much differently from any other cop thriller. more...
  • Black Mass
  • Black Mass (R)

    Based on a nonfiction book by Dick Lehr and Gerard O'Neill, this crime saga details the corrupt partnership between South Boston crime lord James "Whitey" Bulger (a balding, unrecognizable Johnny Depp) and FBI agent John Connolly (Joel Edgerton), an old pal who cultivated Bulger as an informant but may have done more to help his criminal empire than Bulger did to help the bureau. more...
  • Blue Caprice (R)

    A fictional treatment of the infamous 2002 Beltway snipers, this indie drama is long on ambience and mercifully short on violent action sequences. more...
  • The Bling Ring (R)

    The title refers to a clique of spoiled SoCal teenagers who reportedly spent more than a year, from October 2008 to August 2009, burglarizing the homes of Hollywood celebrities (Paris Hilton, Lindsay Lohan, Megan Fox, Orlando Bloom) and making off with their cash, clothes, jewelry, and other accoutrements of fame. more...
  • Bullet to the Head (R)

    Sylvester Stallone teams up with Walter Hill—whose early triumphs like The Warriors (1979) and Southern Comfort (1981) have long since given way to action vehicles for Mickey Rourke, Bruce Willis, and Wesley Snipes—for a routine crime picture along the lines of Hill’s big hit 48 Hours (1982). more...
  • Broken City (R)

    Solid but unambitious, this detective movie recalls a late-40s noir programmer in its brisk plotting and gritty but affectionate portrait of city life. more...
  • Bullhead (R)

    Nominated for an Oscar as best foreign film, this Belgian import about crime in the cattle business lays it on pretty thick with the bull metaphors: the protagonist (Matthias Schoenaerts), a tall and well-muscled cattle farmer, has been injecting himself with testosterone since he was a boy and a local bully beat his genitals to a pulp with a brick (just as his family have been injecting their stock with hormones for years). more...
  • Boy Wonder (R)

    Sometimes I think vigilante dramas would be more tolerable if they were pure violent payback, without all the moral grandstanding about our flawed criminal justice system. more...
  • The Boston Strangler (R)

    Richard Fleischer's professional efficiency tarts up a bit with dated 60s flashiness (multiple images, etc) and semidocumentary pretense in this 1968 feature about Boston sex murderer Albert De Salvo (Tony Curtis), brought to justice at last by police inspector Henry Fonda (Fleischer was shortly to tackle similar material in 10 Rillington Place, an account of the career of British serial slayer John Christie). more...
