Wolves, R

Typical sports movie clichés are superseded by a strong script, director, and cast (headed by Michael Shannon) telling a gritty story about a high school basketball phenom and his alcoholic, gambler father and enabling mother.

Kedi, Unrated

The documentary about the stray cats of Istanbul, Turkey demonstrates — in vignettes both moving, and yes, even to a dog person, adorable — why the city's residents feel like they are "on the same frequency" as their beloved felines.

I Am Not Your Negro, PG-13

A whip-smart documentary portrait of writer James Baldwin that combines archival footage of speeches and talk show appearances with passages from his unfinished book about Martin Luther King, Malcolm X, and Medgar Evers.
