Borderline (2016)

"The film is effective in drawing attention to what can be a seriously disabling problem. It's also entertaining, incisive and highly watchable." ‐Eye for Film

Finding Oscar (2016)

"Suffern has put together something that has widespread relevance and, critically, the ability to connect with viewers from all backgrounds. It's a superb piece of work." ‐Eye for Film

The Islands and the Whales (2016)

"The Islands And The Whales knows when to be small, and its intimate portraits of day to day life illustrate how the monumental intersects with the personal." ‐Eye for Film

100 Years (2016)

"Although this film lacks polish and doesn't have the dynamism one might hope for with a subject of this type, Cobell herself is a strong presence, and its historic importance is considerable." ‐Eye for Film

Chi-Raq (2015)

"Though not entirely successful, Lee's adaptation certainly has balls." ‐Eye for Film

Kickboxer: Vengeance (2016)

"Simply framed and refreshingly free of gimmicks, John Stockwell's film never gets distracted from the action - and there's plenty of that to enjoy." ‐Eye for Film

The Eyes of My Mother (2016)

"The Eyes Of My Mother is melancholy and poetic, a picture of loneliness, its suffocated passions escaping only in the thundering vocals that accompany the closing credits." ‐Eye for Film

The Birth of a Nation (2016)

The Academy of Muses (La academia de las musas) (2016)

"The Academy Of Muses is a rather hit and miss affair, suggesting that some strange malady has distracted Guerín's focus." ‐Eye for Film

The Wailing (Goksung) (2016)

"Overall, The Wailing is a deeply flawed but nonetheless compelling film which will cement Na's reputation as a force to be reckoned with." ‐Eye for Film

Denial (2016)

"This is a powerful and thoughtful piece of cinema. It properly depicts an important moment in legal history and it does so with a rare sensitivity." ‐Eye for Film

Don't Think Twice (2016)

"Don't Think Twice has quite a bit in common with these performances at a structural level. It's an intelligent film with a clear passion for its subject. It just doesn't quite hit the mark." ‐Eye for Film

Southwest of Salem: The Story of the San Antonio Four (2016)

"Bringing together interviews with the main players, court transcripts and archive footage from the time, Southwest Of Salem is detailed and comprehensive but never drags. It's difficult viewing for all the right reasons." ‐Eye for Film

Kaili Blues (Lu Bian Ye Can) (2015)

Jackie (2016)

"All those beautiful artificial vistas remind us that we are strangers here, that all we can do is watch; that the real Jackie, and her celebrated pain, are unknowable." ‐Eye for Film

Panic (2014)

"The film takes a refreshingly realistic approach to trafficking, expanding the narrative beyond rape, and the presence of Amy complicates its take on sex work. " ‐Eye for Film

The Noonday Witch (2016)

"The film's lyrical construction and intense central performance from Geislerová, well matched by newcomer Lipowská, do justice to the enduring power of the story,." ‐Eye for Film

Right Now, Wrong Then (2016)

"Ultimately, the whole suggests that Sang-soo is more interested in art for art's sake than in communicating with his audience." ‐Eye for Film

Do Not Resist (2016)

"Do Not Resist does a good job of summing up recent events and looking at the philosophies that have fed into them." ‐Eye for Film

Creepy (Kuripi: Itsuwari no rinjin) (2016)

"It is the nothingness of the other, rather than the brief scenes of violence and gore, that opens up the horror at the heart of this deceptively sophisticated film." ‐Eye for Film

The Neon Demon (2016)

"Its visual indulgence and frequent referencing of other films about celebrity... is entirely appropriate given its subject matter - and ultimately, there's nothing to be ashamed of about enjoying the beauty of a film." ‐Eye for Film

Nobody Walks in LA (2016)

"As a hymn to a beloved place, it is only partially successful, but as a study of the relationship between people and places it has a noteworthy contribution to make." ‐Eye for Film

A Street Cat Named Bob (2016)

"This is a feelgood film whose feline star proves every bit as charming on the big screen as he is on the small one, and his fans will love it. Beyond this, however, it struggles to find direction, so its ability to win over new fans may prove limited." ‐Eye for Film

Maya Angelou: And Still I Rise (2016)

"The large amount of original interview footage, with the woman herself as insightful as ever, will delight her fans, and anybody unfamiliar with her work will find this a fascinating place to start." ‐Eye for Film

In the Heat of the Night (1967)

"When critics of the film industry claim that films have no meaningful impact on the world, In The Heat Of The Night is one of the best examples you can use in counter-argument." ‐Eye for Film

Let's Be Evil (2016)

Kate Plays Christine (2016)

"It's easy to connect with Sheil's developing obsession, harder to walk the same path. In this way, Greene forces us to ask questions about ourselves as well." ‐Eye for Film

Borderline (1930)

Off the Rails (2016)

"It goes beyond its fascinating subject to ask all of us what value we put on our passions and if we might not reasonably expect the world to bend a little, just sometimes, to make room for those unreasonable things that keep it interesting." ‐Eye for Film

Sharktopus vs. Pteracuda (2014)

The Neighbor (2016)

Somnus (2016)

Shark Exorcist (2015)

"If you were hoping for demonic action, you'll have to settle for glowing eyes, and in place of sharknados all you'll find here is a sort of last-minute shark drip." ‐Eye for Film

31 (2016)

"To put it more simply, this is fun. It has energy and it has personality. Zombie is not (yet) up there with the greats, but this is superior trash." ‐Eye for Film

Downhill (2016)

The Killing of America (1982)

Francesca (2015)

Road Games (2016)

"Though its tendency to whimsy means it's not quite as tightly plotted as it needs to be, this charismatic little thriller still manages to punch above its weight." ‐Eye for Film
