85% Pete's Dragon (2016) "More than anything, this is a slice-of-life tale, whisper-thin but still full of feeling and a generous sense of place. With the world's most adorable dragon at the center of it all. " ‐ Village Voice
Posted Jul 27, 2016
92% Gleason (2016) "There are moments of such raw, intimate anguish in this film that you can't help but turn away. " ‐ Village Voice
Posted Jul 27, 2016
56% Jason Bourne (2016) "There's a greatest-hits quality to the movie, only the band is tired and its heart isn't in it. " ‐ Village Voice
Posted Jul 26, 2016
94% The Seventh Fire (2016) "Riccobono films it all with intelligence, sensitivity and a feel for offhand poetry; his camera captures moments of intimacy and tension without ever quite intruding. " ‐ Village Voice
Posted Jul 21, 2016
83% Star Trek Beyond (2016) "While he may have seemed like a counterintuitive choice to take over a Star Trek movie, Lin is absolutely in his element whenever the film becomes about bodies and vehicles moving swiftly through space - which is often. " ‐ Village Voice
Posted Jul 15, 2016
71% Café Society (2016) "Lovely visuals, terrific performances, renewed ambition: There's enough good in Café Society to make it worth your while - and also to make you wish it were better. " ‐ Village Voice
Posted Jul 12, 2016
33% Equals (2016) "We keep waiting for the love story to go somewhere, for the characters' burgeoning awareness of their repression to result in...something. Anything, really. " ‐ Village Voice
Posted Jul 12, 2016
74% The Secret Life of Pets (2016) "The Secret Life of Pets is an ADD-addled mess of a movie - and that, amazingly, is its charm. " ‐ Village Voice
Posted Jul 1, 2016
70% Our Kind of Traitor (2016) "McGregor brings depth to the role. He beautifully portrays his character's thinking: His sharp, inquisitive eyes and thin lips seem forever caught between a smile and a grimace. " ‐ Village Voice
Posted Jul 1, 2016
54% The Purge: Election Year (2016) "The writer/director has a lot to say, but this neo-grindhouse framework isn't built for complexity. Still, the film is just bonkers enough to work. " ‐ Village Voice
Posted Jul 1, 2016
43% Free State of Jones (2016) "Diligent and informative but also fragmented and inert, it plays like a series of scenes and notes for a longer, more fleshed-out movie. " ‐ Village Voice
Posted Jun 22, 2016
68% Central Intelligence (2016) "Central Intelligence won't blow you out of the theater, but you might be surprised at how well it works - how genuinely funny it is - given the familiarity of this concept. " ‐ Village Voice
Posted Jun 17, 2016
94% Finding Dory (2016) "Finding Dory is one of the most devastating things Pixar has made - all while often being even bouncier than Finding Nemo. " ‐ Village Voice
Posted Jun 14, 2016
49% Genius (2016) "If you can get past the spectacle of British and Australian actors portraying some of the most important figures of 20th-century American literature, Genius is a good example of a prestige pic that is not only literate but surprisingly vibrant. " ‐ Village Voice
Posted Jun 8, 2016
95% De Palma (2016) "Garrulous and good-humored, De Palma presides over Paltrow and Baumbach's film, taking us through his life and career step by step, title by title, in chronological order. " ‐ Village Voice
Posted Jun 7, 2016
80% The Conjuring 2 (2016) "The streamlined elements of the first have now given way to mind-numbing clutter. " ‐ Village Voice
Posted Jun 3, 2016
97% The Fits (2016) "Holmer films the story as if it were a dance performance, one where differences in movement and posture say more than words ever could. " ‐ Village Voice
Posted May 31, 2016
81% The Idol (Ya Tayr El Tayer) (2016) "In presenting a somewhat fictionalized version of Assaf's journey, Palestinian director Hany Abu-Assad gets the most important thing right: The Idol treats this as a story, not as history. " ‐ Village Voice
Posted May 25, 2016
100% Hell or High Water (2016) "Sheridan's script - filled with quotable zingers, telling character details, and topical anger - comes to vivid, exciting life with that cast, in particular Bridges, who seems to have finally found another gruff, down-home type worthy of his talents. " ‐ Village Voice
Posted May 18, 2016
94% Aquarius "At the center of this emotional maelstrom is the 65-year-old Braga, herself a living legend and bridge to the past. In a long film of many turns, her performance - weathered, proud, sensuous, fragile - captivates and brings us into her world. " ‐ Village Voice
Posted May 18, 2016
67% Julieta "The brooding suspense of Julieta reflects the protagonist's sense of inchoate guilt: She always suspects that she's done something wrong, but she's never quite sure what. " ‐ Village Voice
Posted May 18, 2016
59% Personal Shopper "Personal Shopper descends into fragmentation and alienation, and not always rewardingly. It also doesn't help that Stewart's fidgety, mechanical performance indulges some of her worst acting tics. " ‐ Village Voice
Posted May 18, 2016
91% Loving (2016) "While Loving is intimate, it's not indulgent; it seems to have absorbed Richard Loving's eyes-on-the-road humility and his wife's down-home pragmatism. " ‐ Village Voice
Posted May 17, 2016
96% Weiner (2016) "Weiner is about as entertaining as a film about someone destroying a life and career can be. You can't turn away from the car wreck, and Weiner himself can't stop commenting on it. " ‐ Village Voice
Posted May 17, 2016
74% The BFG (2016) "Kids may well dig it. (Hell, my kid may well dig it.) But for me, The BFG was all anticipation of a different kind, leading to a massive letdown. " ‐ Village Voice
Posted May 16, 2016
89% A Monster With A Thousand Heads (Un Monstruo de Mil Cabezas) (2016) "Plá achieves a visual style that is ice-cold but also deeply human - a clever way to depict an all-powerful system that feeds on our lives and thrives on our fallibility. " ‐ Village Voice
Posted May 11, 2016
48% X-Men: Apocalypse (2016) "What makes X-Men: Apocalypse so exciting isn't really any one thing but rather its cohesion, its storytelling verve. " ‐ Village Voice
Posted May 9, 2016
77% Elstree 1976 (2016) "The most interesting part of Elstree 1976 comes when these actors express ambivalence about their odd celebrity. " ‐ Village Voice
Posted May 5, 2016
89% Dheepan (2016) "Audiard has always had the heart of a genre filmmaker tempered with the eyes of a behavioralist. He gets in close to his characters - focusing on their faces, their hands, their feet - so that we feel every blow and quiver, every scream and whisper. " ‐ Village Voice
Posted May 4, 2016
90% Captain America: Civil War (2016) "These films no longer have to delight and surprise us; no, their job now is to manage the brand, not screw anything up too royally, and keep us hooked for the next installment. Civil War pulls all that off mostly well. " ‐ Village Voice
Posted Apr 28, 2016
No Score Yet The Bomb "I enjoyed it. I'm still not sure if I was supposed to. " ‐ Village Voice
Posted Apr 27, 2016
75% Viktoria (2016) "An impressive display of stylistic control and directorial vision, even if it doesn't always hold together. " ‐ Village Voice
Posted Apr 27, 2016
63% The Man Who Knew Infinity (2016) "The filmmakers, by sticking to such a conventional structure, have deprived themselves of the tools to give us a real sense of Ramanujan's achievement. " ‐ Village Voice
Posted Apr 26, 2016
55% La Luna (1979) "Luna seduces and repels you at the same time. It's a film about the silences and cruelties between people, but it explodes with color, music, and movement. " ‐ Village Voice
Posted Apr 21, 2016
16% The Huntsman: Winter's War (2016) "There's nothing in Huntsman to hold its pieces together. Everybody's acting up a storm, but nobody expresses any urgency or aspiration or desire - and, what's worse, none of those great actors have been given any memorable lines. " ‐ Village Voice
Posted Apr 20, 2016
70% A Hologram for the King (2016) "It may start with a big burst of energy, but this is a sad, somber film about a world that's slowly, knowingly losing touch with the real. " ‐ Village Voice
Posted Apr 20, 2016
91% Green Room (2016) "Jeremy Saulnier's Green Room is an impeccably crafted cinematic torture machine - in the best possible way. " ‐ Village Voice
Posted Apr 14, 2016
94% The Jungle Book (2016) "If only all blockbusters could be this exciting, engrossing, and beautiful. " ‐ Village Voice
Posted Apr 12, 2016
53% Demolition (2016) "Amazingly, if awkwardly, the experiment works. " ‐ Village Voice
Posted Apr 8, 2016
69% Louder Than Bombs (2016) "A fractured film about a fractured family, Louder Than Bombs takes a potentially tired premise and reshapes it before our eyes. " ‐ Village Voice
Posted Apr 6, 2016
97% Sing Street (2016) "Though Sing Street is much more stylized and broad than Once, it remains true to Carney's fondness for grounded fantasy. " ‐ New York Magazine/Vulture
Posted Apr 5, 2016
81% Glassland (2016) "Glassland smartly plays off Jean's unhinged disintegration against John's tense, subdued control. In that contrast lies the power of this film. " ‐ New York Magazine/Vulture
Posted Mar 31, 2016
97% The Dark Horse (2016) "Combines several potentially tired subgenres - the inspirational-teacher drama, the mental illness drama, and the gang thriller - but, helped immeasurably by Curtis's performance, makes something new out of them. " ‐ Village Voice
Posted Mar 31, 2016
87% Everybody Wants Some!! (2016) "The experience of watching this film is one of reflective exuberance. It's a movie about people who arrive sure of themselves and depart in the quiet confidence that all they know is that they know nothing. " ‐ Village Voice
Posted Mar 29, 2016
27% Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice (2016) "The movie's not bad but it doubles down on its least-interesting and potent elements at the expense of those that actually work. " ‐ Village Voice
Posted Mar 23, 2016
29% My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2 (2016) "It's a nice movie. Not a good one, or a well-made one, or a smart one, but a nice one. " ‐ Village Voice
Posted Mar 22, 2016
13% The Divergent Series: Allegiant (2016) "These movies were never going to transform cinema, but watching Allegiant, it's hard not to feel as if someone has pulled the rug out from under an otherwise modestly entertaining franchise. " ‐ Village Voice
Posted Mar 18, 2016
83% Midnight Special (2016) "Midnight Special is exceptionally well acted and often quite gripping and sad. " ‐ Village Voice
Posted Mar 15, 2016
37% The Brothers Grimsby (2016) "Mostly, The Brothers Grimsby simply wants to make you laugh. And it will. " ‐ Village Voice
Posted Mar 15, 2016
50% Lolo (2016) "Lolo is a maternal horror film in the guise of a light romantic comedy, and therein lies much of its charm. " ‐ Village Voice
