Son of Saul (2015)
The filmmakers have created an intensely stark and visceral representation of this hellish place, and the cinematography is intimate and stunning.

Biel turns in a fine performance as the unlikely violent hero, but Mamet excels in a role far different than her Shoshanna on HBO's Girls.

It's good enough to stand on its own, and will also satiate fans craving an appropriate ending to the nihilistic journey.

The Night Before proves the stoner comedy and the holiday movie to be a surprisingly wonderful combination.

Brooklyn (2015)
"Brooklyn" is at times swooningly romantic, but it's so much more than just a love story. It's a coming of age tale woven into America's coming of age.

Burnt (2015)
"Burnt" gets distracted by petty dramas. Without enough meat on the bones of this story, it's just not as satisfying as it could be, evaporating quickly into thin air.

Suffragette (2015)
This revolution looks like others that we've seen on screen, and the film legitimizes it while also offering a stark reminder that the fight is far from over.

Momentum (2015)
Momentum is just that - a whole lot of forward motion without much to back it up or a compelling destination.

Victoria (2015)
The audacious one-shot wonder "Victoria" is a masterful feat of execution, but the long take is so much more than a nifty trick - it's an absolutely necessary part of the storytelling that colors in the themes explored in this wild film.

Pan (2015)

3/4
While the film itself is plagued with structural storytelling issues that are at best emotionally numbing, at worst confounding, Malala's inspirational spirit is undeniable, and the documentary allows that to shine through.

A flop of a horror film that overestimates gore for actual scares.

Men go to battle, but women often take the brunt of war's cruelties.

99 Homes (2015)
The film eventually drifts away from the more interesting, complicated, and difficult story of survival and individual choices, towards moralistic judgments on the honesty of the work. Still, "99 Homes" is one of the scariest films you'll see all year.

It's a cute enough diversion, but it doesn't really amount to much more than Saturday morning cartoons.

3/4
Everest (2015)
Ultimately, "Everest" is an achievement of production, capturing the landscape in striking IMAX cinematography. It's also the compelling tale of mountains and the people who feel the need to conquer them, or be conquered in the process.

No Escape (2015)
No Escape" can't stay ten steps ahead of its misguided politics and overly dramatic storytelling, and crumbles under its own preposterous climactic denouement.

2/4
This film is not about anything other than its own coolness. It is pure post-modern empty pastiche; retrograde fun made for a globalized 21st century.

1.5/4
The latest iteration of "Fantastic Four" is far from what its name suggests. Profoundly uninteresting, it hits all the beats of the standard superhero movie, but provides nothing in the way of imagination or magic.

Pixels (2015)
"Pixels" is a blast of energetic fun ... the novelty of nostalgic video game characters as space invaders sustains the film, thanks to the spectacularly executed and original effects.
