0/4 29% Outlaws and Angels (2016) "A vile, nauseating and incomprehensible pile of saddles-and-spurs gibberish sane audiences will undoubtedly avoid at all costs. " ‐ New York Observer

Posted Jul 13, 2016
4/4 75% Café Society (2016) "Romantic, bittersweet and funny as hell, Café Society turns Hollywood inside out, rooting through the superficial tinsel to find the real tinsel. You go away gobsmacked, beaming and happy to be both. " ‐ New York Observer
Posted Jul 13, 2016
3.5/4 77% Captain Fantastic (2016) "Despite a frustrating fizzle of a finale, it's a movie that enthralls the senses and engages the mind for two hours, proving no movie is too long when you're having fun. " ‐ New York Observer

2/4 19% The Duel (2016) "Situations are not always convincing, and motivations are so weak that whole sections of explanation seem to be missing. " ‐ New York Observer
Posted Jun 23, 2016
2/4 72% Wiener-Dog (2016) "I guess Solondz wants to show the pain and detritus of human experience but with satirical pokes at American life in particular. The results are more unnerving than humorous. " ‐ New York Observer

Posted Jun 2, 2016
3/4 70% The Ones Below (2016) "There are elements of The Hand That Rocks the Cradle here, but Mr. Farr and an excellent cast of four give it fluidity and balance without the familiar "gotcha." " ‐ New York Observer
Posted Jun 2, 2016
0/4 91% The Nice Guys (2016) "The Nice Guys is another sub-mental movie for morons churned out by the kind of sophomoric Hollywood machine that trademarks the works of Judd Apatow & Co. " ‐ New York Observer
Posted May 19, 2016

Posted Mar 17, 2016
3/4 68% Whiskey Tango Foxtrot (2016) "I found it flawed but fascinating, and a no-fail showcase for Tina Fey's real talents as a serious actress. Best of all, this movie is never boring for a single minute. " ‐ New York Observer
Posted Mar 3, 2016
