This Month’s Highlights

Available March 3

For an underrated gangster classic: Carlito’s Way

A little less celebrated than other Al Pacino classics like Scarface, Carlito’s Way nonetheless reunites director Brian De Palma with the iconic actor for a story about a mobster trying to go legit, and stymied at every turn — because once a gangster, always a gangster. Featuring brief, but memorable turns by Puerto Rican icons John Leguizamo and Luis Guzmán, Carlito’s Way may not have the sterling reputation of other movies in the mob canon, but it’s no less enjoyable. Available March 3.

Because M. Night Shyamalan is on the rebound: Unbreakable

M. Night Shyamalan’s best film hasn’t aged super well, but it’s still one of the most fascinating films in the superhero canon. And like a lot of the most interesting superhero movies out there, it was made before the modern ear brought about by the start of the modern cinematic universe. As David Dunn, a man who mysteriously walks away as the sole survivor of a ¸train crash, Bruce Willis gives an understated performance opposite Samuel L. Jackson’s charismatic Mr. Glass, and their meeting brings about one of the most fascinating morality plays to unfold in the genre. And not to spoil anything, but this movie is one you might want to revisit soonAvailable March 1.

Available September 20

For a smart YA drama: Before I Fall

A more tragic take on the Groundhog Day time loop, Before I Fall follows Samantha Kingston, a high school senior on the cusp of graduating, who finds herself forced to relive the same February day over and over again—and it always ends in a fatal car crash. A teen drama (based on the novel of the same name) that’s confidently directed by Ry Russo-Young, Before I Fall is the sort of YA drama that’s hard to find and easy to love. Available March 17.
