Bad Moms (2016)
La corrispondenza (2016)
"Though blessed with a spectacular true story and character to work from, director and co-screenwriter Lars Kraume fails to breathe much life into the stuffy, overly complex enumeration of the historical facts that led to Eichmann's arrest."
"With its attractive young cast and a multiplatform media campaign, Nerve won't need to rely on going viral to find its audience, but it's unlikely to be trending for long once viewers digest its simplistically cautionary message."
Jason Bourne (2016)
Can We Take a Joke? (2016)
Miss Sharon Jones! (2016)
"In the empowering tradition of Shut Up & Sing, Running From Crazy and Force of Nature, veteran documentarian Barbara Kopple serves up another portrait of female strength and resilience with Miss Sharon Jones!"
Summertime (La Belle Saison) (2016)
"The story's anchored by strong performances from Belgian star Cecile de France and French singer-turned-actress Izia Higelin, who have a natural chemistry that's not only credible but actually infectious."
The Childhood of a Leader (2016)
"This first feature by 27-year-old American director Brady Corbet combines a fine Euro cast, grandiose art direction and a thundering score by Scott Walker, but the result is an embarrassing hodgepodge that's very hard to follow."

Phantom Boy (2016)
"Taking their old-school animated style across the Atlantic, directors Alain Gagnol and Jean-Loup Felicioli offer up a heartwarming New York story with Phantom Boy, their second feature collaboration following the 2010 Oscar-nominated A Cat in Paris."
"Evoking some unholy cross between the satanic classic Rosemary's Baby and Lucile Hadzihalilovic's uncannily eerie Innocence, with an inky dash of Lost Highway, [Osgood Perkins' film] represents a remarkable debut."
Garnet's Gold (2016)
"Sometimes all a documentary needs is one strong, charismatic personality to keep things watchable: Garnet's Gold boasts two in the form of the middle-aged eponymous protagonist and his feisty octogenarian mother."
Don't Blink - Robert Frank (2016)
"The legendary creator of the seminal photography book The Americans and such cult film classics as Pull My Daisy and Candy Mountain makes for a highly engaging commentator in Don't Blink: Robert Frank."
The Dog Lover (2016)
Contemporary Color (2016)
"If something is lost in the transition from live spectacle to film - in person, there was pleasure in figuring out which performer's thoughts we were hearing at any given moment; here, the camera tells us - an intimacy is gained in compensation."
Looking: The Movie (2016)
"While Looking: The Movie isn't as astonishingly fine as Looking the series, there's enough greatness in it to make fans (we're out there!) agonize anew over the fact that, yes, this time it's over for real."

Sarkar Raj (2008)
"Sixty-five-year-old Amitabh Bachchan, India's vibrant and virile living legend, is riveting in nearly every film he does. But even a true fan's ardor is tested by the tedious political thriller, Sarkar Raj."
Bol Bachchan (2012)
"This big-budget summer release starts off awkwardly with a half-hearted music number, but once it kicks into gear, the film's engaging performances and ever-spiraling hysteria make its two-and-a-half-hour running time fly by."
The Infiltrator (2016)
Our Kind of Traitor (2016)
Life, Animated (2016)
The Purge: Election Year (2016)
"While some fairly unconvincing theories are tossed out in frequent debates concerning the underlying purpose of the Purge, they mostly remain within the limits of the film's fundamental themes of exploitation and disenfranchisement."
The Legend of Tarzan (2016)
"What thus remains is a film that looks painterly and features solid performances but which lacks a key that would unlock the emotional, spiritual and ideological mysteries that hide behind this unfocused retelling of the facts. "
