Nocturnal Animals (2016)

Allied (2016)

"An old-fashioned film that slyly nods to contemporary sensibilities, "Allied" is an engaging showcase for Pitt and Cotillard." ‐St. Louis Post-Dispatch

Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them (2016)

"What might have been a cynical cash grab is a delightful romp through new but equally spellbinding territory." ‐St. Louis Post-Dispatch

Arrival (2016)

"Working from a screenplay by Eric Heisserer, director Denis Villeneuve creates a richly imagined world in which the theme of extraterrestrial outreach is addressed with a refreshing dignity." ‐St. Louis Post-Dispatch

Inferno (2016)

"In his third performance as Langdon, Hanks has little to do but look distressed, bewildered or flabbergasted. His greatest acting challenge may have been keeping a straight face." ‐St. Louis Post-Dispatch

Certain Women (2016)

""Certain Women" requires patience from the viewer and isn't for anyone, but it's a film of quiet and lingering beauty." ‐St. Louis Post-Dispatch

3/4 81%

American Honey (2016)

"Some may consider "American Honey" too long and more than a bit repetitive. But Arnold's not after a mere snapshot. Her aim is nothing less than a mural of contemporary American life." ‐St. Louis Post-Dispatch

Queen of Katwe (2016)

"What redeems "Queen of Katwe" is the performance of Oyelowo, who imbues Katende with an exhilarating blend of humor and humanity." ‐St. Louis Post-Dispatch

The Magnificent Seven (2016)

"Only when there's an opportunity to blow things up does Fuqua seem fully engaged." ‐St. Louis Post-Dispatch

Snowden (2016)

"Gordon-Levitt turns in an Oscar-worthy performance as a man who's all too aware of what he's letting himself in for. And Woodley skillfully balances a range of emotions as Lindsay." ‐St. Louis Post-Dispatch

Our Little Sister (Umimachi Diary) (2016)

"Rarely has a film more eloquently captured the universality of human experience." ‐St. Louis Post-Dispatch

Sully (2016)

""Sully" is the kind of film that may be described as old-fashioned and never goes out of style." ‐St. Louis Post-Dispatch
Posted Sep 8, 2016

Complete Unknown (2016)

"Despite its flaws, "Complete Unknown" raises provocative questions about the nature of identity and whether it's more a comfort or a trap." ‐St. Louis Post-Dispatch

Hands of Stone (2016)

""Hands of Stone" isn't a knockout of a film, but it's light on its feet and throws a lot of good punches." ‐St. Louis Post-Dispatch

Hell or High Water (2016)

"Much more than a genre piece, "Hell or High Water" takes you places that you thought the big screen had forgotten." ‐St. Louis Post-Dispatch

3/4 59%

War Dogs (2016)

"Working from a screenplay that he co-wrote with Stephen Chin and Jason Smilovic, Phillips delivers a film that raises provocative questions about the economic imperatives of war while masquerading as a buddy comedy." ‐St. Louis Post-Dispatch

Florence Foster Jenkins (2016)

"It's not necessary to be a classical-music buff to be charmed by this thoroughly entertaining film that never hits a false note." ‐St. Louis Post-Dispatch

3.5/4 56%

Jason Bourne (2016)

"Damon is terrific as the impressively skilled yet poignantly haunted Bourne. Jones is malevolence personified as Dewey. And Vikander lends a steely confidence to Lee." ‐St. Louis Post-Dispatch

3.5/4 82%

Captain Fantastic (2016)

"The film's title, suggesting a comic-book flick, will likely cause box-office confusion. But in a way, it's appropriate. "Captain Fantastic" is a truly heroic effort." ‐St. Louis Post-Dispatch

Star Trek Beyond (2016)

"Lin seems most concerned with keeping things moving, and on that score he succeeds." ‐St. Louis Post-Dispatch

Ghostbusters (2016)

"McCarthy, Wiig, McKinnon and Jones prove to be a relentlessly inventive comic ensemble. And Hemsworth is a revelation as a guy who's blissfully unaware of his sheer incompetence." ‐St. Louis Post-Dispatch

The Infiltrator (2016)

"Just because a story actually happened doesn't mean it will make for compelling cinema. This is a prime example." ‐St. Louis Post-Dispatch

Wiener-Dog (2016)

"At a time when even niche films are virtually scrubbed clean of any traces of eccentricity, Solondz's downbeat vision of humanity is downright refreshing." ‐St. Louis Post-Dispatch

Swiss Army Man (2016)

"If you've been looking for a film that puts a daringly surreal spin on "Cast Away," you'll be in paradise." ‐St. Louis Post-Dispatch

The BFG (2016)

"It's a film that casts a unique and often mesmerizing spell. But it's also a bit too talky, particularly in the early going, and Spielberg lets numerous opportunities for humor slip by." ‐St. Louis Post-Dispatch

Art Bastard (2016)

"Cenedella may never become a household name, but "Art Bastard" argues persuasively that fame is overrated." ‐St. Louis Post-Dispatch

Now You See Me 2 (2016)

"Chu is more craftsman than poet, but the charismatic ensemble cast engages in the trickery with style." ‐St. Louis Post-Dispatch

Dark Horse (2016)

"It's an old-fashioned tale of an individual overcoming the odds - only in this case, that individual happens to be a horse." ‐St. Louis Post-Dispatch

Popstar: Never Stop Never Stopping (2016)

"Although at slightly less than 90 minutes the film seems too long, it's an impressive showcase for Samberg's oddly endearing brand of comic cluelessness." ‐St. Louis Post-Dispatch

Sunset Song (2016)

""Sunset Song" is not without flaws, but it's an art film of uncommon beauty." ‐St. Louis Post-Dispatch
