Rules Don't Apply (2016)

"Bravo to Warren Beatty for making an original and highly pleasing piece of entertainment." ‐Leonard Maltin's Picks
Posted Nov 29, 2016

Certain Women (2016)

"The drama is low-key and the issues far from extraordinary, but the characters are real and recognizable. What's more, they are brought to life by talented actresses who understand Reichardt's less-is-more approach to storytelling." ‐Leonard Maltin's Picks

Christine (2016)

"The film doesn't pretend to offer answers or solutions, nor is it a cautionary tale: it is a straightforward dramatization of this unfortunate woman's life and it is spine-tinglingly good." ‐Leonard Maltin's Picks

The Accountant (2016)

"Director Gavin O'Connor handles all of this efficiently but the protracted screenplay and unlikely story twists do him no favors. We're left with a cluttered, unsatisfying mess." ‐Leonard Maltin's Picks
