Before You Know It
This documentary will break your heart. Filmmaker PJ Raval documents the lives of three elderly gay men in the U.S. In Harlem, Ty talks about the number of friends lost to the AIDS epidemic; it's a devastating list. In Portland, Dennis, in his late 70s, talks about his wife dying, his depression, and his family's indifference. Many of the men's biological family members either ignore them or merely tolerate them. In light of this, they've created their own circles—in Texas, Robert runs a bar where his patrons are like close family. It's not without happy moments, but Before You Know It is a tearjerker that leaves you feeling a little hopeless. JENNA LECHNER Clinton Street Theater.

recommended Edge of Tomorrow
A fun, funny action movie with science-fiction smarts, deft satire, a nail-biter of a plot, and lots of cool explosions. If you see a better popcorn movie this summer, it's going to be a very good summer indeed. NED LANNAMANN Various Theaters.

The Fault in Our Stars
John Green's The Fault in Our Stars is one of the most popular young adult novels of the last several years, and one of the rare YA titles to make serious headway with adults as well. Through the lens of two love-struck teenagers—both of whom happen to have cancer—the novel addresses mortality and illness with clarity, humor, and depth. So it's understandable that in adapting Green's novel for the screen, director Josh Boone and screenwriters Scott Neustadter and Michael H. Weber hewed closely to it. In some regards, their respect for the novel pays off; other elements of the book probably should've stayed on the page. ALISON HALLETT Various Theaters.

recommended How to Train Your Dragon 2
How do you train your dragon? With love. That was the message of a certain unexpectedly magnificent cartoon from 2010, and the let's-all-try-to-get-along vibe is continued in How to Train Your Dragon 2, a worthy follow-up with all the heart and humor of its predecessor. Set five years after gawky teen Hiccup (voiced by Jay Baruchel) helped his Viking village turn dragons from enemies into friends, the sequel has him and his proud father (Gerard Butler) disagreeing on how to handle Drago Bloodfist (!), a fearsome warrior who's assembling a dragon army. Thematically, it's "people can change" vs. "no they can't" as writer/director Dean DeBlois expands the story's mythology and ups the emotional stakes by reuniting Hiccup with his long-lost mother (Cate Blanchett). One more rousing success like this and How to Train Your Dragon will be the second-best animated trilogy in history. (Nothing's gonna touch Toy Story, sorry.) ERIC D. SNIDER Various Theaters.

recommended Night Moves
Kelly Reichardt isn't a traditional storyteller. Her films, written in collaboration with Portland writer Jonathan Raymond (Old Joy, Wendy and Lucy, Meek's Cutoff), are like enlarged fragments of longer narratives: We meet characters with little context, and when we part ways with them, it's most often without a clear sense of resolution. But in Night Moves, Reichardt engages more than ever with... well, plot. Genre, even. Night Moves is her most easily classifiable work to date; thankfully, Reichardt keeps herself at enough of a remove from traditions that she retains her identity as a purveyor of the unanswered.

recommended Under the Skin
Filmmakers—male filmmakers, especially—have a tendency to exploit Scarlett Johansson as a kind of blank, beautiful object—a weird kind of emotional prop favored by long silences and longing glances. She's implemented as this beautiful, otherworldly thing—a vague, cipher-like canvas whose surface vividly reflects whatever meaning other people project upon it. It's an unseemly kind of mishandling that Jonathan Glazer upends to marvelous effect in the sensually stunning Under the Skin. ZAC PENNINGTON Academy Theater, Laurelhurst Theater.
