Frank's Song (2014)
Live By Night (2017)
Monster Trucks (2017)
Assassin's Creed (2016)
"Rather than wrangle the frantic battles and hazy conspiracies of Assassin's Creed into a coherent epic, Kurzel has merged them into a solemn stream of psychedelia, and the result is at once ludicrous and entrancing."
Why Him? (2016)
"Franco might as well be a grinning, swearing dashboard ornament, but at least former Malcolm in the Middle fans can look forward to a very Hal reaction while on the sensorily precise Japanese bidet."
La La Land (2016)
"Every moment of La La Land is worth living through because of Stone and Gosling, and Chazelle, whose direction is alive to the thrill of duets, first kisses and getting on with the show, even when you just want to cry backstage."
No Pay, Nudity (2016)
"Aquarius is the second feature by Brazilian director Kleber Mendonça Filho (Neighboring Sounds), and the Portuguese-language film's pacing matches that of its senior protagonist: slow, deliberate and confident."
Rogue One: A Star Wars Story (2016)
"The performances in this film are among the best the franchise has seen. This isn't a film of supermen. It's one of everyday people trying to justify, morally and practically, their roles in the struggles against an overwhelming, evil adversary."
"Using color Super 8 footage from Jaco's early life and funding from Metallica bassist Robert Trujillo to great effect, Jaco spares no expense in telling the tragic story of this incredible musician."
Bad Santa 2 (2016)
The Eagle Huntress (2016)
"From the start, Aisholpan's adventures are a nonstop rush of exhilaration -- when she clambers down a jagged cliff to nab her eagle from its nest, you get a suspenseful kick worthy of Alfred Hitchcock or The Bourne Identity."
King Cobra (2016)
Rules Don't Apply (2016)
Generation Found (2016)
"Generation Found is a documentary focused on alternative means of treating drug abuse in young people in Houston that offers an insightful and hopeful glimpse at successful resources for kids and families struggling with addiction issues."
Kate Plays Christine (2016)
"Loving provides a timeline for the social evolution that would enshrine love, however blind, into law. Nichols' true success is... in how he captures the unwavering love between Richard and Mildred."
The Edge of Seventeen (2016)
The Pearl (2016)
The Devout (2015)
"In his feature debut, British Columbian writer and director Connor Gaston shows narrative vision, resourcefulness (the few special effects are reminiscent of the cult sci-fi thriller Primer) and a great deal of potential."
Beware the Slenderman (2016)
"What may be the spookiest insight of Beware the Slenderman isn't the storybook monster, or the disturbed children, but the potential for hellish internet phenomena to climb out of the monitor and into the world."
"Every energetic scene is paired with well-known sing-alongs, for which Kendrick and Timberlake offer their talented vocals. And for an animated film built for short attention spans, the storyline stays pitch perfect."
Hacksaw Ridge (2016)
Gimme Danger (2016)
"Jarmusch leaves no fingerprints, making this documentary a rather straightforward, artless exercise. Nevertheless, the film is carried by its subject matter, the music and a handful of long interviews with Iggy Pop that largely serve as narration."
Doctor Strange (2016)
Oasis: Supersonic (2016)
From Afar (Desde Allá) (2016)
The Handmaiden (Ah-ga-ssi) (2016)
The Lost Arcade (2016)
Under The Shadow (2016)
"Anvari employs only the cream of the horror-trope crop, from decapitated dolls to creepy mute children and a newly abandoned Cold War-era apartment complex. The effect is a gradual shift from the merely creepy to the utterly terrifying."
Keeping Up With The Joneses (2016)
Do Not Resist (2016)
"Sure to affirm those who already agree with the documentary's ideology, convert a few wavering civilians, and shame anyone out there who legitimately believes that Concord, New Hampshire is in dire need of an armored personnel carrier."
Under The Sun (2016)
"The absurdity of what the Communist state expects to pass as convincing propaganda has its own brand of zany comedy -- until Mansky zooms in on the eyes of a sobbing preteen as her dance instructor berates her."
White Girl (2016)
Mia Madre (2016)
