The First Monday in May (2016)
"[Rossi] effectively goes behind the scenes, capturing the complicated logistics that go into the creation of the exhibition and its accompanying gala. The former element provides the film's emotionally richest moments."
Florence Foster Jenkins (2016)
"Aiming for the same kind of affectionate comic tone as The King's Speech, this gentle musical farce from director Stephen Frears hits more than a few flat notes, but still delivers gentle laughs and classy star performances."
Too Young to Die (2016)
Barbershop: The Next Cut (2016)
BitterSweet (BitterSüß) (2016)
"Bittersweet is an ambitiously crafted drama that makes revealing statements about affluent capitalist societies and the clash of old and new values, but fails to deliver due to sketchy characterization and weak acting."
God Willing (Se Dio Vuole) (2015)
Attack On Titan Part 2 (2015)
Chongqing Hot Pot (2016)
"The two leading actors effectively enough express the simplistic perspectives they're meant to represent, but there's no subtext or nuance called for; they're more like action totems of diametrically opposed positions."
Our Times (2015)
My Big Night (Mi Gran Noche) (2016)
"Even if you've allowed yourself to hope that the redoubtable actors might tilt the proceedings in a positive direction, almost every choice made by director Ariel Vromen... sends Criminal spiraling toward overwrought silliness."
Applause (Applaus) (2010)
The Bodyguard (2016)
"Hong Kong action-comedy auteur Sammo Hung has instead relinquished the controls of his first directorial effort in nearly two decades to a screenplay drenched with cliched mobsters, maudlin melodrama and a plot with red herrings aplenty."
"The film certainly displays an undeniable verisimilitude... and its striking visuals are bone-chilling enough to make you feel the need to wear a parka, even if watching it in a nicely heated theater."
Mad Tiger (2016)
The Boss (2016)
The Adderall Diaries (2016)
The Huntsman: Winter's War (2016)
The Jungle Book (2016)
Meet the Blacks (2016)
"As one expects, Chomsky again proves to know more about his targets than they seem to know about themselves, calling on bits of history that damn not only the business-boosting right wing, but those on the supposed left side of American politics."
The Wild Life (2016)
"The subject of Francofonia is art as the spoils of war... Making the barest hint about the destruction of historic artworks in Syria at the hands of ISIS, Sokurov gently reminds the viewer why all this is terribly relevant today."
The Wait (L'attesa) (2016)
"This is the kind of Catholic melodrama in which the conceit of having a mother mourn her son alone, and Jeanne, standing in for the faithful, eagerly awaits her beloved's return on Easter Sunday, is too beautiful to resist."
Hooligan Sparrow (2016)
"Nearly the entire film is shot with hand-held cameras... Throughout, Wang makes a virtue out of necessity: Her on-the-run scoping and jarring cuts infuse the film with a sense of desperate danger befitting its subject matter."
The Master Cleanse (2015)
"Master Cleanse isn't the easiest film to open up to. But Miller knows exactly how the third act should play, and he manages (thanks in part to the increasingly intriguing creature work) to reach an emotionally satisfying conclusion."
Get a Job (2016)
"The problem is that a movie like this - limp, lazy, generic - just doesn't cut it at a time when American indies and television offer sharp, witty, satisfyingly complex takes on the "Facebook generation.""
My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2 (2016)
