These looks at what’s on the big screen in the coming week include reviews for “Drive My Car” and “Flee,” an animated doc joined by another boundary-pushing animated film, “Cryptozoo” at The Brattle, by the more traditional “Mitchells vs. the Machines” and more cinema from “Atlantis” to Taiwan.
These looks at what’s on the big screen and streaming in the coming week include reviews for “Scream,” “The Whaler Boy” and “Shattered,” as well as the gems coming to The Brattle and Somerville Theatre, from some of the best of 2021 to the new “Days,” “About Endlessness,” “In the Earth” and “Censor.”

The original “Matrix” broke ground in action filmmaking and intrigued with its plays on Eastern philosophies in essentially a simple story of war between humans and machines.
