96% BlacKkKlansman (2018) A remarkable blend of rage and humor makes BlacKkKlansman at once both a necessary and timeless experience. It will shock most, offend some, but most importantly will spark conversation among all. - Film School Rejects EDIT

88% American Animals (2018) It's a wild ride that shakes up a common narrative by way of a refreshingly multifaceted approach. It's about time someone made a heist film like this. - Film School Rejects EDIT

89% I, Tonya (2018) This mean-spirited biopic provides cheap laughs at the expense of its subjects. - Film School Rejects EDIT

86% Okja (2017) Once again, Bong proves that he is a master of dark comedy, a true environmentalist, and a man with a big heart. - Film School Rejects EDIT

12% Fifty Shades Darker (2017) Less BDSM and more boring sex makes this a weaker, though ultimately more compelling entry in the series. - Film School Rejects EDIT

79% An Inconvenient Sequel: Truth To Power (2017) The follow-up to the 2006 Oscar winner fails to engage in a fully realized discourse on climate change. - Film School Rejects EDIT

56% Katie Says Goodbye (2016) As brutal as Katie Says Goodbye may be to experience, one cannot help but commend Roberts' control over the viewer. - Film School Rejects EDIT

90% Blue Jay (2016) The latest film by The Duplass Brothers is light on the plot, heavy on the tear ducts. - Film School Rejects EDIT
Read More | Posted Oct 11, 2016
71% The Commune (Kollektivet) (2017) The Commune is not peak Vinterberg. Nevertheless, the film displays a fully realized and continually evolving auteurist gaze, bringing life to otherwise mundane material. - Film School Rejects EDIT

91% Elle (2016) Working with material tailored to her talents, Huppert gives the performance of her career. - Film School Rejects EDIT

85% Lion (2016) True story or not, there is no denying that Lion is a largely empty film. A paint-by-numbers production, Lion is following a simple set of instructions for achieving an emotional response from its audience. - Film School Rejects EDIT

58% I Am the Pretty Thing That Lives in the House (2016) The languid pacing of I Am the Pretty Thing will surely be unwelcome by anyone expecting a straightforward horror film. The film is most rewarding when approached as an experiment of sorts. - Film School Rejects EDIT

5/5 91% Mountains May Depart (Shan he gu ren) (2016) Zhao Tao's awe-inspiring performance and the pure audacity of director Jia Zhangke make Mountains May Depart the auteur's best effort to date. - We Got This Covered EDIT

75% The BFG (2016) While The BFG may not be a true return to form for Spielberg, it is nonetheless a charming effort that is sure to stand the test of time. - Film School Rejects EDIT

58% The Neon Demon (2016) If one surrenders themselves to the film's eccentric exhibition, The Neon Demon can surely be recognized as one of the year's most bizarrely fun films. - Film School Rejects EDIT

5% The Last Face (2017) The Last Face is a film that should not exist. There is not a single thing about this film that makes logical sense on paper. - Film School Rejects EDIT

80% Personal Shopper (2017) The Kristen Stewart renaissance is upon us. - Film School Rejects EDIT

58% Money Monster (2016) In theory, Money Monster has all the components of a great sociopolitical action thriller. In practice, everything is a little more hollow than it should be. - Film School Rejects EDIT

95% The Handmaiden (Ah-ga-ssi) (2016) It's slow to start, but once things start to move along and come together, the journey is riotous, depraved, and delightful. - Film School Rejects EDIT

70% Café Society (2016) I'll take fun, light, and forgettable Woody Allen over the tedious droll that Allen seems to turn out every couple years or so. - Film School Rejects EDIT

4/10 82% Tale of Tales (Il racconto dei racconti) (2016) With only brief glimpses of a coherent film, Tale of Tales is a flat and overlong misfire. - We Got This Covered EDIT

6/10 73% Penguins Of Madagascar (2014) Penguins of Madagascar is a great film for the kiddies and a pain-free ninety-minutes for their parents. - We Got This Covered EDIT

3/10 22% The Sound And The Fury (2014) One can say that Faulkner is unfilmable, but any work will be unfilmable when it is being adapted by a talentless director. - We Got This Covered EDIT

5/10 92% Breathe (2015) While Respire is initially an excellent portrait of a friendship taken to extremes, it fumbles when it becomes a full-on melodrama. - We Got This Covered EDIT

8/10 95% Wild Tales (2015) Wild Tales is an insanely fun ride that marks Szifron as one to watch in the Argentinian cinema scene. - We Got This Covered EDIT
