Doctor Strange (2016)

"If "Doctor Strange" can be dispiritingly safe, it can also be just as impressively bold - an hallucinogenic trip along a very familiar path, watching the film is like adding a large dose of LSD to your morning commute." ‐indieWIRE

Nocturama (2016)

"Nocturama is enthralling until the bitter end, but it's so hard to distill its purpose that you can't tell if the film is opaque or if it simply offers nothing to see." ‐indieWIRE

Jack Reacher: Never Go Back (2016)

"Less of a movie than it is a monotonous two-hour supercut of Tom Cruise elbowing people in the face, Jack Reacher: Never Stop Never Reaching is a generic star vehicle that's been stripped down to nothing but an old engine and a rusty chassis." ‐indieWIRE

The Accountant (2016)

"Ben Affleck plays an ass-kicking autistic man who travels the globe under a series of aliases and performs elite maths for some of the world's most dangerous people - this is a real thing starring real people and made with real money." ‐indieWIRE

Danny Says (2016)

Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children (2016)

"Burton doesn't reinvent (or even reanimate) YA movies so much as he layers a Tim Burton Snapchat filter over them, as though a surplus of big eyes might compensate for a lack of big ideas." ‐indieWIRE

My Blind Brother (2016)

Trespass Against Us (2016)

"Even when Trespass Against Us slumps toward the same generational conflicts at the heart of so many recent indies, these actors refuse to reduce their characters into any recognizable archetypes. " ‐indieWIRE

Una (2016)

American Pastoral (2016)

"One of the most perceptive novels of the 20th century becomes one of the most ill-conceived movies of the 21st as Ewan McGregor tries his hand at directing with this ruinously streamlined adaptation of Philip Roth's 1997 masterpiece." ‐indieWIRE

The Lure (Córki dancingu) (2016)

"Try as she might to pretend otherwise, Smoczynska builds her story upon the foundation of a fairy tale, and all of her fantastically bonkers ornamentations are supported by the romance that blossoms between Silver and Mietek." ‐indieWIRE

White Girl (2016)

"Elizabeth Wood's fire-breathing debut is an adrenalized shot of ecstasy and entitlement, a fully committed cautionary tale that's able to follow through on its premise because t's unafraid of being utterly loathsome." ‐indieWIRE

Ben-Hur (2016)

Kingsglaive: Final Fantasy XV (2016)

Disorder (Maryland) (2016)

"Respectfully folding the symptoms of PTSD into a slick genre piece, Winocour's second film is more of a calling card than it is an arrival. " ‐indieWIRE

Anthropoid (2016)

"Despite the film's gripping final chapter, its heroic Czechoslovakian characters are completely disconnected from the rest of the country, much like their struggle has been omitted from the cinematic legacy of the war they helped to win." ‐indieWIRE

Equity (2016)

"What makes this such a vital feminist film, even when its other qualities are often few and far between, is how defiantly it internalizes the idea that strong female characters have nothing to do with decency, and everything to do with depth." ‐indieWIRE

Into The Forest (2016)

"Rozema doesn't push the future feminism angle to its full degree, the ideas baked into her script never becoming nearly as dynamic as the characters who are desperate to bring them to life." ‐indieWIRE
