Blood Father (2016)
Welcome To Happiness (2016)
Inversion (Varoonegi) (2016)
"The smog that envelopes the teeming metropolis of Tehran, graying out tall buildings and infecting people's lungs, becomes an ominous sign of the times in veteran director Behnam Behzadi's penetrating drama Inversion."
The Other Side (Louisiana) (2016)
Dog Eat Dog (2016)
"The film positively swills in its disreputability and all-around low-budgetness; sporting a healthy disregard for respectability, Schrader has just gone for it here with a highly focused recklessness that he turns to his creative advantage."
The Last Face (2016)
The Neon Demon (2016)
Gimme Danger (2016)
Wrong Elements (2016)
"Stuffed with examples of the nose-thumbing spirit that has sustained their popularity despite the bandmates' refusal to reveal their individual identities, the film is a fine primer for the curious."
Two Lovers and a Bear (2016)
"DeHaan and Maslany both have meaty, rangy roles here that are not exactly subtle but never become quite implausible either, with both of them finding a convincing middle ground between these two extremes ..."
Queen Mimi (2016)
Toni Erdmann (2016)
"Director Wes Orshoski, who previously co-directed a laudatory 2010 profile of Motorhead frontman Lemmy Kilmister, builds a solid case for the band's historic importance in this funny, fast-moving, fan-friendly documentary."
Maggie's Plan (2016)
"The picture is one part vintage Woody Allen, a few parts screwball-era comedy of remarriage and a vigorous shake of Gerwig herself, without whose particular spirit this scenario might have trouble getting off the ground."
Ma ma (2016)
The Cinema Travellers (2016)
Personal Shopper (2017)
Everything We Loved (2014)
"With its convincingly drawn characters and, in Brett Stewart and Sia Trokenheim, two actors who can do their complex parts justice, this high-end drama convinces on an emotional level even if, visually, the film is rather traditionally put together."
Wolf and Sheep (2016)
Raman Raghav 2.0 (2016)
"The story could have turned into one huge cliché, and there are genre elements that are numbingly familiar, was it not for the exceptionally scary performance of Nawazuddin Siddiqui in the role of the villainous, demented serial killer Ramanna."
Hell or High Water (2016)
Harmonium (Fuchi ni tatsu) (2016)
"While the first hour slyly builds up the illusions of a man and his wife using the stranger as a catalyst for their weaknesses, in the second half their guilt and lies come home to roost with a shock. It's hard not to leave the film shaken."
Mean Dreams (2016)
The Park (Le parc) (2016)
Dogs (Câini) (2016)
"This smoothly told tale is more of a character study than a romance, yet should still draw fans of romance fiction who will particularly appreciate Louis Garrel in the role of the dashing lieutenant Andre Sauvage."
"The assured storytelling and direction, including some of the goriest makeup effects this side of Rob Zombie, turn Raw into the kind of crossover film that takes the horror genre into another domain."
Like Crazy (La pazza gioia) (2016)
The Handmaiden (Ah-ga-ssi) (2016)
Tour de France (2016)
"There's a lot in Tour de France that feels either predictable or too on-the-nose, while the loose storyline never manages to hammer home the film's themes of exile, regeneration and what it means to be French."
