The Birth of a Nation (2016)
The Girl on the Train (2016)
The Greasy Strangler (2016)
Under The Shadow (2016)
"To paraphrase Talking Heads, life during wartime ain't no party, especially if you're stuck in Tehran at the tail end of the Iran-Iraq war in the late Eighties. That's the predicament facing the family at the heart of this nervy little haunter."
Raw (Grave) (2017)
The Zodiac Killer (1971)
"True crime and cinema go together like highways and spree killers. But no film has a more bizarre relationship with real-life murder than 1971's The Zodiac Killer, the first film to be restored by the American Genre Film Archive."
Dearest Sister: Nong Hak (2016)
Deepwater Horizon (2016)
Queen of Katwe (2016)
"Not only is [Madina Nalwanga] able to convey Phiona's preternatural abilities, but also the trepidation and fears that arise once the child gets a sense of her own keenness and a glimpse of how life is lived outside the slums of Katwe. "
"Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children is simply too much of a good thing crammed into a single movie. It's a phantasmagorical chase movie that rarely takes a breather long enough for you to enjoy the sights along the way."
"Not only an instant genre classic but also an astute and affecting rumination on the notion that the shades of the past are always with us and can disrupt us to the point of personal and societal collapse."

The Vessel (2016)
Other People (2016)
"Other People is gentle, heartfelt, and of a delicate build. Kelly's best observations are small but true: the touching banality of a bad pop song, and that "other people" is in fact most people, if you're paying attention."
When the Bough Breaks (2016)
"It is clear from the start that Deborah Esquenazi's film couldn't care less about aesthetics... But it becomes a compelling aesthetic of its own, expressing an intimacy with the women and their families that the viewer can't help but fall into."

Mia Madre (2016)
"Ma Madre is effective in dramatizing the familiar paces adult children go through tending to their parents: the hospital indignities, confused consults with doctors, and helplessness at encroaching dementia."
"Kore-eda is one of the most optimistic and humanist filmmakers working today, and even though Our Little Sister isn't quite as finely articulated as some of his previous work, his core compassion for humanity comes through clearly."
The Wild Life (2016)
"Eastwood keeps his direction lean and mean. There's not an ounce of wasted screen time in Sully's 96 minutes, but the story, an example of "truth is stranger than fiction," has all the thrust it needs, and then some."
"With the Beatles' company Apple Corps as one of the producing partners, Howard's access to original material was presumably nonpareil. And with a subject as rich as the Beatles, "you know that can't be bad.""
