LABOR DAY The look on Kate Winslets face = the look of everyone who watches Labor Day.

Ugh. Is January over yet?

LABOR DAY Alison says Jason Reitman "is clearly making a bid for Serious Director status with this one, but Labor Day is a bland, tedious misfire."

THE PAST Marjorie says the latest from Asghar Farhadi further demonstrates his "uncanny ability to build deep investment in his audience by calmly stacking small, private, even trivial elements into an unexpectedly curious whole."

THAT AWKWARD MOMENT Elinor says the latest Zac Efron movie is about "bottom-feeding jerkoffs." Whee!

There's more, as ever, in Film Shorts, including this year's Oscar-nominated short films and the Portland Black Film Festival, as well as repertory screenings of Wong Kar-wai's In the Mood for Love and Ridley Scott's Alien. Good luck watching Alien without suffering from Prometheus flashbacks!

ALIEN A spirited young woman ventures into the great unknown to find adventure and romance!
