Our critics review “Dumbo,” a live-action remake of the 1941 animated classic by Disney; “The Highwaymen,” a Netflix original about the two Texas rangers who killed Bonnie and Clyde; “Diane,” a drama about an altruistic woman who takes care of her sick friends, volunteers at a soup kitchen, and tries to save her drug addicted son; and “Beach Bum,” a comedy starring Matthew McConaughey, Zac Efron, and Snoop Dogg.
