recommended 10,000 KM (Spain)
She goes to LA, he stays in Barcelona, and Skype does what it can. Smart, bittersweet, and occasionally really hot (Game of Thrones' Natalia Tena is still not the slightest bit camera shy), with a genuine feel for how innocuous pillow talk can quickly turn serious and/or sour. ANDREW WRIGHT

recommended Belle and Sebastian (France)
Kids (and adults who can tolerate 'em) will love this movie about a French boy and a feral dog he befriends in the Nazi-occupied French Alps. The titular twee band makes no appearance. COURTNEY FERGUSON

recommended Electric Boogaloo: The Wild, Untold Story of Cannon Films (Australia)
If you grew up watching low-budget '80s action flicks on VHS, Electric Boogaloo is an indispensably entertaining doc. True anecdotes about Mssrs. Golan and Globus, the enthusiastic but undiscerning Israeli entrepreneurs who funneled hundreds of schlocky titles like American Ninja and Bloodsport into cinemas, are better than most of the movies. ERIC D. SNIDER

Horse Money (Portugal)
Pedro Costa's latest plays like a feed from the mind of its lead character as he pores over his tortured past on his deathbed. Though hauntingly beautiful, the film is a slow slog and, without some knowledge of Portuguese politics, often confusing. ROBERT HAM

recommended In Order of Disappearance (Norway)
In Order of Disappearance reunites Stellan Skarsgård with his A Somewhat Gentle Man director, Hans Petter Moland, for a darkly comic Norwegian revenge thriller about an ordinary snowplow driver (the native title translates as "Powerful Idiot") bumping off the mobsters who killed his son. It's bloody, violent fun that's somehow tasteful in spite of itself. ERIC D. SNIDER

Today (Iran)
A character study of a stoic taxi driver who takes a desperate unwed pregnant woman to the hospital. Single mothers don't fare well in Tehran... so there's your first clue this is going to be depressing. COURTNEY FERGUSON

Arresting Power: Resisting Police Violence in Portland, Oregon
Making good use of rare archival footage from the Oregon Historical Society, local documentary Arresting Power is at its strongest when telling the origin story of Portland's police accountability movement—providing potent evidence that the marches and demands for change that have erupted post-Ferguson are part of a decades-long tradition started by our city's African American community. DENIS C. THERIAULT Hollywood Theatre.

recommended Bonnie and Clyde
A fun, sexy, groundbreaking movie marred by a performance so irritating and unbearable that you will want to gouge your ears out. Estelle Parsons is the offender here, a shrieky, whiny, moany counterpoint to Warren Beatty, Gene Hackman, and Faye Dunaway, all of whom are effortlessly cool. NED LANNAMANN Academy Theater.
