CRITICS’ CHOICE

PFC’s Limelight Cinema: Thurs. 3:30, 9 p.m.

Pickford Film Center: Thurs. 3:50, 8:45 p.m.

“The Witch” — Robert Eggers’ impressive debut feature sows suspicion into nearly every frame, so intent on a darkening mood that the stillness of trees at the edge of a wood, or a child’s face in demonic thrall, even an ambling goat, carries the same capacity to unnerve. (1:30) R.

Barkley Village 16: Fri.-Wed.: 7:50, 10:15 p.m.

“Zootopia” — Bursting with a rich blend of timely themes, superb voice work, wonderful visuals and laugh-out-loud wit, Walt Disney Animation Studios’ latest is quite simply a great time at the movies. (1:48) PG.

“The Divergent Series: Allegiant” — This next installment taken from the best-selling books is the kind of movie where when a character says “We’re gonna be OK,” you know their troubles are just beginning. Especially if that character’s name happens to be Tris Prior. (2:01) PG-13.

“Knight of Cups” — Beautiful yet unapproachable, opaque and occasionally incomprehensible, this drama, beautifully shot by Oscar-winner Emmanuel Lubezki, shares its personality with its self-absorbed Hollywood characters.

“London Has Fallen” — This by-the-numbers slog, which returns stars Gerard Butler and Aaron Eckhart, represents a geopolitical obliteration fantasy flushed from the mind of the angriest and dumbest and most conspiracy-minded among us. (1:39)
