Consensus Comparison: Lucy, A Most Wanted Man July 26, 2014

Seven movies covered in the column this week, starting with Lucy, which still only has one negative review out of eight. The Elaine Stritch documentary at the bottom is not a new release. I regret not covering it back when it opened this past February, but I’m fixing that mistake now.
