Larry Mantle and KPCC film critics Tim Cogshell and Claudia Puig review this weekend’s new movie releases.

Our FilmWeek critics have been curating personal lists of their favorite TV shows and movies to binge-watch during self-quarantine. You can see recommendations from each of the critics and where you can watch them here.

You may hear our FilmWeek critics review films on the show that are playing at indoor venues that have reopened in our listening area. FilmWeek and KPCC are not endorsing or encouraging anyone to see a movie at an indoor theater at this time. If you do decide to attend a showing at an indoor theater, please familiarize yourself with COVID-19 safety protocols from the CDC, your local public health agency, and the theater where you’re seeing the film.
