A ’70s Horror-Porn Homage, a Mind-Bending Anime, and Every Other Movie You Can See in Theaters This Week

Oh and I guess the movie with Channing Tatum and the dog is still around.

A decent crop of new movies in theaters this week, by the standards of the March doldrums—Graham Moore’s stylishly claustrophobic gangster pic The Outfit, Mariama Diallo’s supernatural (or is it?) thriller Master, and Ti West’s return with the sleazy, gory X. And if you do want to see Satoshi Kon’s wild Paprika at the Trylon, hop to it—Sunday’s screening is already sold out.
