40% Why Him? (2016) Sad to say, even The Internship was smarter, and funnier, about Silicon Valley stereotypes than this.‐ East Bay Express

83% The Brand New Testament (Le tout nouveau testament) (2016) The Brand New Testament is extra-whimsical yet hard as nails when we get down to the rough stuff, like mortality, love, and sadness. What better choice for a holiday matinee at the movies?‐ East Bay Express

89% Jackie (2016) The film is not a document, nor a myth, nor a political indictment, but a completely subjective, artfully wrought fragment of the American mystique.‐ East Bay Express

54% Rules Don't Apply (2016) If [Beatty] never makes another film, this would be a sad capper to the career of the actor who gave us Bonnie and Clyde, McCabe & Mrs. Miller, and Shampoo.‐ East Bay Express

61% Allied (2016) Allied explains more about war, dependency, and human nature in general than just about any other film in theaters this pre-holiday season. It's recommended, especially for people who usually have no time for war movies.‐ East Bay Express

73% Nocturnal Animals (2016) Shannon makes even okay dialogue sound brilliant, and his facial expressions rival most novels in the "good read" category.‐ East Bay Express
Read More | Posted Dec 27, 2016
90% Elle (2016) The indignities and mishaps are so numerous that they become comical.‐ East Bay Express

Read More | Posted Dec 27, 2016
No Score Yet Company Town (2016) Company Town celebrates grassroots process and energetic democracy. It may just be the finest political film of the year.‐ East Bay Express
Read More | Posted Dec 27, 2016
98% Moonlight (2016) Right down the line, every single actor in the large cast paints a remarkable, unhurried, true-to-life portrait. ‐ East Bay Express
Read More | Posted Dec 27, 2016
85% Maggie's Plan (2016) Director Miller's dialogue, concocted from a story by book publisher Karen Rinaldi, puts a sparkle in the mouths of everyone concerned. ‐ East Bay Express
Read More | Posted Dec 27, 2016

Read More | Posted Nov 9, 2016
89% Do Not Resist (2016) Do Not Resist is an audacious examination of an especially troubling aspect of the ongoing militarization of the US. See it and draw your own conclusions.‐ East Bay Express
Read More | Posted Oct 28, 2016
60% Desierto (2016) A cruel postcard from the America we'd probably rather not think about.‐ East Bay Express
Read More | Posted Oct 14, 2016
94% Command and Control (2016) A suitable subject for a nail-biter fictional thriller, but it's a documentary.‐ East Bay Express
Read More | Posted Oct 14, 2016
71% The Birth of a Nation (2016) The Birth of a Nation is the only film this year you cannot afford to ignore.‐ East Bay Express
Read More | Posted Oct 14, 2016

Read More | Posted Oct 14, 2016
63% The Magnificent Seven (2016) Outside of being a tad overproduced, it stands on its own perfectly well.‐ East Bay Express
Read More | Posted Oct 14, 2016
69% The Infiltrator (2016) An ideal summer popcorn pic, if you don't mind a little blood on your kernels.‐ East Bay Express
Read More | Posted Sep 22, 2016

Read More | Posted Sep 22, 2016
82% Indignation (2016) Near the top of the heap of this year's deep-dish character studies, with special praise to Roth, Schamus, Lerman, Gadon, and Letts.‐ East Bay Express

Read More | Posted Sep 22, 2016
81% Equity (2016) She earns our pity to a degree, but it's the pity we might have for a lioness who brings down a gazelle only to have it stolen by hyenas.‐ East Bay Express
Read More | Posted Sep 22, 2016
25% Ben-Hur (2016) Most of the film's shortcomings stem from the awkward combo of modern-day grotesquerie and fluffy romantic exoticism.‐ East Bay Express
Read More | Posted Sep 22, 2016

Read More | Posted Sep 22, 2016
100% Ixcanul (2016) The ideal village-picture fable, as fascinating for its innate mythology as for its ethnography.‐ East Bay Express
Read More | Posted Sep 22, 2016
83% In Order of Disappearance (2016) A Euro-trash procedural with precious little on its mind.‐ East Bay Express
Read More | Posted Sep 22, 2016

Posted Jul 15, 2016
100% Golden Kingdom (2016) Golden Kingdom, a narrative feature that seems at first to be a documentary, takes us someplace we might want to visit and convinces us it's utterly different from anywhere else.‐ East Bay Express
Read More | Posted Jun 22, 2016
51% Genius (2016) Non-essential but oddly delightful.‐ East Bay Express
Read More | Posted Jun 8, 2016
83% Hockney (2016) Randall Wright's Hockney is the sort of documentary profile of an artist everyone hopes for but that we seldom get: a deep dive into the creative spirit in which every single frame reveals something vital about its subject.‐ East Bay Express
Read More | Posted May 26, 2016
96% Sing Street (2016) No one will ever hate him- or herself for going along with the sentimental Irish improbabilities.‐ East Bay Express
