Our critics review “The Current War,”  about the race to bring electricity to American homes, starring Benedict Cumberbatch as Thomas Edison and Michael Shannon as George Westinghouse; “Black and Blue,” about a rookie police woman whose body camera catches bad cops shooting a civilian; “Countdown,” a horror movie about an app that tells you exactly when you die, and it might have something to do with your death too; “Frankie,” starring Isabelle Huppert as a woman on her deathbed.
