Weed the People

Buoyed by hopeful experiences with medical marijuana, physicians and parents of children with cancer call for more research of its healing potential.

Though the film seems pretty thoroughly convinced on this topic, its main argument should ring true even for skeptics: We won't know the answers if, thanks to the drug's Schedule I status in the US, scientists remain unable to study its effects.

Pose

In 1987 New York, LGBTQ ball fixture Blanca starts her own house, soon becoming mother to a gifted dancer and a sex worker in love with a yuppie client.

Pose is aspirational and celebratory - and in pursuit of that, a little anachronistic, importing to the New York of 30 years ago all the trans commitment of today. Never mind. This is, after all a study in the lives of the saints, set to disco.— Dave Sexton, London Evening Standard

The Wandering Earth

A looming collision with Jupiter threatens Earth as humans search for a new star. The planet's fate now lies in the hands of a few unexpected heroes.

 

I can't think of another recent computer-graphics-driven blockbuster that left me feeling this giddy because of its creators' consummate attention to detail and infectious can-do spirit.
