Movie capsules: Short reviews of what’s in theaters

New releases

Black Rock You know actress-filmmaker Katie Aselton and her husband, Mark Duplass, from “The Puffy Chair” and TV’s “The League.” They’ve teamed for a backwoods survival thriller directed by Aselton and scripted by Duplass. A mumblecore version of “Deliverance”? Aselton, Lake Bell, and Kate Bosworth are girlfriends who get together for a camping weekend, only to wind up hunted by ex-soldiers. (81 min., R) (Tom Russo)

The Iceman The true story of Richard Kuklinski (Michael Shannon), a mob hitman who murdered hundreds while living a quiet family life in the ’burbs. Director Ariel Vromen doesn’t have the chops for more than sub-“Sopranos” crime conventions. (106 min., R) (Ty Burr)


½ Love Is All You Need What Danish director Susanne Bier’s rom-com needs is a less generic story and genuine characters. It’s a rehash of the trite tale of lonely souls who, despite initial friction, realize they’re made for each other. In English and Danish with subtitles. (110 min., R) (Peter Keough)

Sightseers From the talented Ben Wheatley (“Kill List”), a cheeky low-budget lark about a homicidal couple (Steve Oram and Alice Lowe) on vacation in England’s Lake District. (88 min., unrated) (Ty Burr)

½ Star Trek Into Darkness The new film just has to convince us that 2009’s “Star Trek” wasn’t a fluke. That it does so — expertly, exhilaratingly — is a mark of director J.J. Abrams’s uncanny ease with modern Hollywood formulas. (132 min., PG-13) (Ty Burr)

½ Stories We Tell Is it possible to be anything but subjective when it comes to our families and their stories? This is the endlessly complicated subject of Sarah Polley’s ingenious, multi-leveled meta-documentary. (108 min., PG-13) (Ty Burr)
