100% O.J.: Made in America (2016) Edelman has crafted a structure that always seems to answer the viewer's next question without allowing the complicated themes or various narrative threads to become overwhelming.‐ The Verge

44% The Discovery (2017) An exceptional cast does their damnedest with what they have, but the lines hang dully in the air. It's like watching a high-school play starring a gaggle of anxious teens.‐ The Verge

98% The Big Sick (2017) A beautiful, somewhat traditional love story.‐ The Verge

77% The Little Hours (2017) Beneath all the bodily fluids and sex jokes, Baena and his actors show a deep fascination with the way we communicate our love, romantically and platonically.‐ The Verge

78% An Inconvenient Sequel: Truth To Power (2017) As a call to recruit and energize a new generation of environmentalists, no, it's not good.‐ The Verge

88% Wind River (2017) Better than the lion's share of action films and crime procedurals on film and television. The violence, in particular, is special.‐ The Verge

90% A Ghost Story (2017) The film has a good shot at burrowing into the brain of the viewer, where it will haunt them for much longer than its runtime.‐ The Verge

35% Kuso (2017) The copious gore, the cruel extended rape joke, the abortion sight-gags, and any number of other vomit-inducing pseudo-goofs are so distracting and disorienting that making sense of the film would require a repeat viewing.‐ The Verge

97% Hunt for the Wilderpeople (2016) The film would be thuddingly familiar if not for Waititi's willingness to grasp overused tropes and manipulate them into something new.‐ The Verge

96% Nuts! (2016) Like a great true crime story, it is impossible to look away from.‐ The Verge

91% Grease: Live! (2016) Grease: Live opted for a more cinematic approach, connecting the dots between the live-to-tape soap operas of the 1940s and the "live music videos" you see at contemporary MTV awards shows.‐ The Verge

95% Sing Street (2016) I say this with love, sincerity, and respect: Sing Street is Once: Kidz Bop Edition‐ The Verge

95% Manchester by the Sea (2016) With its cathartic score and Lonergan's habit of underplaying his most dramatic moments, what could be an excruciating journey has a disarming grace‐ The Verge

94% Lo and Behold, Reveries of the Connected World (2016) There's little refuting Herzog's gift as a documentarian. Even condensed, his interviews manage to squeeze fresh stories from people and technology exhaustively covered by books and media.‐ The Verge

88% Other People (2016) Acute, specific observations on life with cancer mostly elevate what could have been an overfamiliar tale of self-pity. Other People isn't perfect, but it's deeply personal.‐ The Verge
