Seasons (Les saisons) (2016)
The Edge of Seventeen (2016)
Gone Girl (2014)
"Not all the veers and neck-cranking developments pay off, but there's a lot to praise in the moody, fractious friction throughout and the enigmatic desolation in the pools of Pike's limpid blue eyes."
Hacksaw Ridge (2016)
Doctor Strange (2016)
Certain Women (2016)
The Handmaiden (Ah-ga-ssi) (2016)
American Pastoral (2016)
The Accountant (2016)
"Few probably knew that balancing the books could be such a lethal endeavor, or that such a cockamamie idea, especially with the normally tacit and wooden Affleck, could translate into such a satiating pleasure -- a guilty one."
Command and Control (2016)
Queen of Katwe (2016)
The Birth of a Nation (2016)
Deepwater Horizon (2016)
"The great achievement of Deepwater Horizon is its ability to score as a thriller and tale of character and perseverance as well as a historical plumbing into the negligence and avarice of corporate bagmen."
The Magnificent Seven (2016)
"The film's greatest asset, besides Gordon-Levitt's complex and nuanced performance... is its unique, under-the-hood peek into the cyber-spy game and the inner workings of government security agencies."
The Light Between Oceans (2016)
Pete's Dragon (2016)
Florence Foster Jenkins (2016)
The Little Prince (2016)
"An instant classic for young and old, the film capitalizes on the themes of identity, what it means to grow up and the importance of staying curious with a gusto and enthusiasm that matches the film's young lead."
Suicide Squad (2016)
Jason Bourne (2016)
"We're a long way from the Robert Ludlum material that was so organically and intricately concerned with spy games and double dealings at the highest levels, with Jason Bourne caught up as the harried fly in the ointment."
"Tallulah won't inspire much thought after the credits roll, despite being a terrific showcases for Blanchard, Janney and Page; more than anything, the film leaves its audience with a sense of apathy."
"Saunders and Lumley pucker up and give it a game go. They're a disastrous pleasure to watch, but it's also a bit like driving a car that has only a CD player and no way to rope in the playlist on your iDevice."
Café Society (2016)
Iron Man 3 (2013)
The Infiltrator (2016)
Swiss Army Man (2016)
The BFG (2016)
The Neon Demon (2016)
"Nicolas Winding Refn tosses All About Eve into the blender with alluring moodiness and bloody malice in this rapturous, sometimes ingeniously inane, tale of superficial nihilism and the obsessive pursuit of perfection. "
Finding Dory (2016)
Man of Steel (2013)
"What's missing in Snyder's Superman is a dash of the hokey goodness that Christopher Reeve contributed to the role and the comic cold cheesiness that Gene Hackman and Terrence Stamp brought as Luthor and Zod."
De Palma (2016)
"By the end, what registers is something more than just a trek through a filmography -- though it will make you want to stage your own mini film retrospective. It's a portrait of a man in full, his wisdom, his trials and his triumphs."
Star Trek Into Darkness (2013)
"At the core of Abrams' brilliant rebranding, beyond the astute and well-measured use of high-powered special FX, is the inspired casting of Chris Pine and Zachary Quinto as the younger Kirk and Spock."
Free Birds (2013)
Blue Is The Warmest Color (2013)
Maggie's Plan (2016)
Me Before You (2016)
"A beguiling look into the paradoxical and self-destructive nature of a man who, while earnest in his desire to serve the public, remains unable to shake a sex-trolling persona infamously known as Carlos Danger."
The Nice Guys (2016)
