Morris from America (2016)

"Curtis understands his son's need to test boundaries as much as his own responsibility to protect him. Robinson makes this single dad's loneliness plain. Morris isn't the only one on the cusp." ‐Los Angeles Times

Anthropoid (2016)

"Enlightening but seldom riveting ..." ‐Los Angeles Times
Posted Aug 11, 2016

Little Men (2016)

"Beautifully observed ..." ‐Los Angeles Times
Posted Aug 10, 2016

Front Cover (2016)

"Whatever nuance can be found in Front Cover, the story of an openly gay fashion stylist and a seemingly homophobic Chinese movie star, belongs chiefly to the performances of Jake Choi and James Chen." ‐Hollywood Reporter
Posted Aug 5, 2016

Miss Sharon Jones! (2016)

"Illuminating and often powerful, if not always satisfying ..." ‐Los Angeles Times
Posted Aug 4, 2016

Newtown (2016)

""Aftermath," that tossed-around cliché, comes into tender, harrowing focus. ... A crucial, profound strength of Newtown is its refusal to rush toward "closure" as necessary, or even to suggest that it's possible. " ‐Hollywood Reporter

Equity (2016)

"As a study of endurance and self-preservation in the face of persistent double standards, the movie clicks." ‐Los Angeles Times
Posted Jul 28, 2016

Gleason (2016)

"If this film portrait stirs deep emotions, they spring from a breathtakingly unsentimental embrace of life at its most challenging." ‐Los Angeles Times
Posted Jul 28, 2016

Free to Run (2016)

"Some legs of the journey are detours, and the film can feel overlong and diffuse, but as a capsule history it offers revelatory insights, particularly in its emphasis on the role of distance running in the women's movement." ‐Los Angeles Times
Posted Jul 22, 2016

The Infiltrator (2016)

"Cranston turns every moment of duplicity, which is to say nearly every scene of The Infiltrator, into an emotionally textured high-wire act." ‐Hollywood Reporter
Posted Jul 1, 2016

Sunrise (2014)

"Despite the overdone stylistics in the film's final third, Sen-Gupta's dark dreamscape distills notions of vulnerability with gritty power." ‐Los Angeles Times
Posted Jun 23, 2016

The Conjuring 2 (2016)

"Wan's expert deployment of genre jolts is no less in evidence this time around, but as he takes his time - perhaps even a bit too much of it - interweaving the Warrens' story with that of the Hodgsons... he crafts a deep dive into dread. " ‐Hollywood Reporter
Posted Jun 20, 2016

Diary of a Chambermaid (Journal d'une femme de chambre) (2016)

"Unfolding elliptically, the new film can feel abrupt and unsatisfying, but it's filled with sharp commentary on class and servitude, and [Seydoux] delivers another extraordinary performance." ‐Los Angeles Times
Posted Jun 9, 2016

Viktoria (2016)

"Inventively surreal virtues mark Maya Vitkova's ambitious debut feature as the arrival of a bracing cinematic talent." ‐Los Angeles Times
Posted Jun 9, 2016

Now You See Me 2 (2016)

"No less than in the glossy caper's 2013 predecessor, the plot rides a surging tide of ridiculousness and culminates in a pileup of unconvincing explanations." ‐Hollywood Reporter
Posted Jun 1, 2016

The Idol (Ya Tayr El Tayer) (2016)

"An uneven but charmingly earnest fictionalized account of Assaf's rise through the ranks of hopefuls on the reality contest "Arab Idol."" ‐Los Angeles Times
Posted May 26, 2016

Warcraft (2016)

"Dramatically and technically, Warcraft gives the concept of "hybrid" new punch." ‐Hollywood Reporter
Posted May 24, 2016

Me Before You (2016)

"Far too much of this high-gloss tearjerker proceeds as a by-the-numbers romantic fantasy, nudging the viewer every step of the way." ‐Hollywood Reporter
Posted May 24, 2016

Welcome To Happiness (2016)

"Likable performers and novel storyline notwithstanding, the comic drama stumbles, leaving audiences with unsatisfying answers to its magic-tinged mystery." ‐Hollywood Reporter
Posted May 20, 2016

Eva Hesse (2016)

"A vibrant, affecting piece of filmmaking that's sure to widen Hesse's following." ‐Los Angeles Times
Posted May 12, 2016

Sunset Song (2016)

""Sunset Song" ... falls short of the intended cumulative effect, its emotional power undercut by its studied, episodic unfolding." ‐Los Angeles Times
Posted May 12, 2016

Alice Through the Looking Glass (2016)

"A clunky composite of visual extravagance and Hollywood commonplaces about a life well lived." ‐Hollywood Reporter
Posted May 10, 2016

Tickled (2016)

"In its genial, low-key way, the film ... is a chilling account of cyberbullying, perpetrated on a disturbingly wide scale over many years." ‐Hollywood Reporter
Posted Apr 21, 2016

I Don't Belong Anywhere - Le cinéma de Chantal Akerman (2015)

"It's a compelling introduction for Akerman novitiates while offering fresh insights to devotees." ‐Los Angeles Times
Posted Apr 21, 2016

A Hologram for the King (2016)

"The focus on the way individuals adapt to and defy custom is one of the smartest aspects of the film." ‐Hollywood Reporter
Posted Apr 19, 2016

Francofonia (2016)

""Francofonia" is a love letter to France and the Louvre, but it's also a harrowing reminder that not all cultures have been held in such high esteem." ‐Los Angeles Times
Posted Apr 15, 2016

Wedding Doll (Hatuna Meniyar) (2016)

"Two compelling performances anchor the Israeli drama Wedding Doll." ‐Hollywood Reporter
Posted Apr 14, 2016

Captain America: Civil War (2016)

"Call it "civil war" or call it brand extension; call it a "cinematic universe" or a corporate behemoth - the latest Marvel extravaganza furthers the studio's cross-pollination of action franchises in a way that's sure to satisfy devotees." ‐Hollywood Reporter
Posted Apr 13, 2016

Applause (Applaus) (2010)

"Applause offers no softening euphemisms -- but plenty of sharp humor -- in its depiction of a gifted artist struggling to reform herself as she rages against the vulnerabilities of middle age." ‐Hollywood Reporter
Posted Apr 8, 2016

Sweet Bean (An) (2016)

"Its sentimentality is tempered by the elegant restraint of the fine lead performances." ‐Los Angeles Times
Posted Apr 8, 2016

Louder Than Bombs (2016)

"Beneath the well-worn dysfunctional-family setup are bracing observations of the human coping mechanism." ‐Los Angeles Times
Posted Apr 7, 2016

Standing Tall (La Tête Haute) (2016)

"With his coiled, jumpy intensity, Paradot - a carpentry student making his acting debut - is thoroughly convincing, provoking scorn as much as sympathy." ‐Los Angeles Times
Posted Apr 1, 2016

Fastball (2016)

"The lively MLB-produced doc's choice archival material and full roster of new interviews will delight fans, both as a warm-up to the 2016 season and beyond." ‐Hollywood Reporter
Posted Mar 28, 2016

Mountains May Depart (Shan he gu ren) (2016)

"Like most of the indispensable Jia's work, this triptych film, which jumps from 1999 to 2014 and then to 2025, is intimately engaged in the push-pull between tradition and progress." ‐Los Angeles Times
Posted Mar 24, 2016

Miracles from Heaven (2016)

"The harrowing medical crisis that drives the family story gives it the nonreligious urgency to preach beyond the choir. So too does Jennifer Garner's down-to-earth lead performance." ‐Hollywood Reporter
Posted Mar 16, 2016

Too Late (2016)

"Hauck's first feature can be suffocating. This narrative puzzle should be more fun than it is." ‐Hollywood Reporter
Posted Mar 14, 2016

Cemetery of Splendor (2016)

"It's a sinuous tale shaped by the writer-director's favorite motifs - animism and medicine - and by sideways glances at the myths, religious traditions and political convulsions of his native Thailand." ‐Los Angeles Times
Posted Mar 10, 2016

Eye In The Sky (2016)

"A fully involving drama about the new rules of engagement." ‐Los Angeles Times
Posted Mar 10, 2016

Una Vida: A Fable Of Music And The Mind (2016)

"It's too bad that a movie so lovingly steeped in music hasn't more rhythm and flow." ‐Los Angeles Times
Posted Mar 3, 2016

1982 (2013)

"Suitably low-key but sometimes under-realized, this drama is fueled by its working-class milieu and a heart-wrenching performance by Hill Harper." ‐Hollywood Reporter
Posted Feb 27, 2016

A Country Called Home (2016)

"The gentle drama A Country Called Home is in sync with its small-town Texas setting. Unfortunately, much of it is also as flat as the terrain, despite the efforts of an engaging cast led by Imogen Poots." ‐Hollywood Reporter
Posted Feb 26, 2016

Who's Driving Doug (2016)

"This road is lined with clichés and blunt dialogue, the emotional shifts all too neatly underlined by Death Cab for Cutie tracks." ‐Los Angeles Times
Posted Feb 25, 2016

The Forbidden Room (2015)

"What Maddin & Co. have invented here ranges from Freudian horror to childish naughtiness." ‐Los Angeles Times
Posted Feb 18, 2016

Snowtime! (2016)

"Director Jean-François Pouliot isn't afraid of stillness or silence or painful moments, even as he whips up plenty of goofy stuff too." ‐Hollywood Reporter
Posted Feb 17, 2016

The Automatic Hate (2016)

"What begins intriguingly rests increasingly on manufactured suspense." ‐Hollywood Reporter
Posted Feb 8, 2016

In The Shadow of Women (2016)

"Is marital fidelity possible when you're bohemian, French and a character in a Philippe Garrel movie? Offering further evidence to the contrary is the director's latest broody musing on life, art and l'amour." ‐Los Angeles Times
Posted Jan 28, 2016

Aferim! (2016)

"In subject and style, it's a departure from [Jude's] contemporary satires, but the period story is evidence of the same keen eye for class hierarchy, codified cruelty and the limits of self-deception." ‐Los Angeles Times
Posted Jan 21, 2016

Naz & Maalik (2016)

"Naz & Maalik unfolds with a youthful vitality, bolstered by the charm of its lead actors." ‐Hollywood Reporter
Posted Jan 20, 2016

The Finest Hours (2016)

"Gillespie isn't able to conjure a stirring cinematic experience. The pieces don't fuse so much as fit together, and much of the action feels instructive rather than immersive." ‐Hollywood Reporter
Posted Jan 18, 2016

The Benefactor (2016)

"What begins as an intriguing psychological thriller devolves ... growing less interesting as it proceeds and giving costars Dakota Fanning and Theo James little to do." ‐Los Angeles Times
