"Shot in an appealingly undisguised Winnipeg, the romantic comedy Lovesick is a passable debut from Winnipeg writer/director Tyson Caron, even if it's utterly undistinguished in its story and its vision."
Quebec My Country Mon Pays (2016)
The Apology (2016)
The Other Half (2016)
"It's an impressionistic, experiential drama, situating us with its characters in bars and clubs and rooms and beds and letting us see how they are together as they find comfort and strength in each other's broken places."
Theater of Life (2016)
Anatomy of Violence (2016)
Celtic Soul (2016)
"Riffing on the intimate two-men-in-a-car approach of The Trip and The Trip To Italy without the metafictional touches, Celtic Soul is a charming if lightweight venture -- which, honestly, we kinda need right now."
Bad Santa 2 (2016)
Rules Don't Apply (2016)
Being 17 (Quand on a 17 ans) (2016)
"These are characters Xavier Dolan could have a field day with - just imagine the high-pitched screaming matches bouncing off the surrounding mountain landscape. But Being 17 is quieter and sturdier than that."
The Birdwatcher (2015)
The Edge of Seventeen (2016)
The Carer (2015)
"This slender piece about a famous actor begrudgingly accepting his young caregiver as he's gradually succumbing to Parkinson's is sentimental and doesn't care much about character backstory or development. But it's entertaining as hell."
Shut In (2016)
Almost Christmas (2016)
The Pearl (2016)
"The doc tends to wander, focusing more on the women's everyday lives. But when they travel and are free from the strictures of their closets inside their home communities, you see how beautiful real freedom can be."

An Eye for an Eye (2016)
Do Not Resist (2016)
The Eagle Huntress (2016)
Rush: Time Stand Still (2016)
Doctor Strange (2016)
"Riffing off the great independent newsman I.F. Stone's famous statement "All governments lie," Peabody connects with an array of impressive indie journalists who are filling in the gaps left by a pandering mainstream media."
Oasis: Supersonic (2016)
"[While] Oasis: Supersonic is simply a record of a band that got really big and then broke up... director Mat Whitecross does deserve credit for digging into the truly awful domestic situation that forged the brothers' contentious personalities."
