Belle

Belle is a rarity in the summer movie season — it's smart.


Drama

Phil Bacharach
Belle is set in the 18th century, but its themes of race and class feel thoroughly contemporary. Don’t be fooled by the prevalence of bodices and powdered wigs. Like the best costume dramas, Belle has resonance for modern-day audiences, especially in a nation with a rapidly growing biracial population and an ever-widening gulf between the very rich and everyone else.

A Million Ways to Die in the West

The new comedy from Seth MacFarlane manages to tire despite exerting minimal effort.


Comedy

Zach Hale
There’s a moment toward the climax of A Million Ways to Die in the West that finds Seth MacFarlane — the film’s director, co-writer and lead actor — hiding among a sea of sheep. As he lays in the dirt, he looks up, and a male member of the herd proceeds to urinate on his face. This particular gag is, for lack of a better phrase, the entire movie in a nutshell.
