Things to Come (L'avenir) (2016)
Anatomy of Violence (2016)
The Apology (2016)
"Hsiung clearly wanted to focus on several specific individuals, whose good humour and perseverance shine through in The Apology. It is one thing to talk about thousands of victims; quite another to look into the eyes of just three."
"With its garish colour palette and sugar-high energy level, Antibirth sometimes resembles a cinematic glass of Kool-Aid. But successful films, unlike powdered drink mixes, require more than just throwing a few ingredients together."
The Other Half (2016)
"Maslany and Cullen have been praised extensively (and justly) for their work here in festival reviews and across the trades; no less excellent, if perhaps less conspicuous, are the performances of the film's supporting players."
Theater of Life (2016)
"The film also takes times to chronicle the refugees, addicts and other unfortunate folk who are the beneficiaries of this high-class soup kitchen... their individual stories adds a welcome layer to what might otherwise be a one-note doc."
Manchester by the Sea (2016)
Being 17 (Quand on a 17 ans) (2016)
Rules Don't Apply (2016)
The Birdwatcher (2015)
London Road (2016)
Bad Santa 2 (2016)
"Adults probably won't even mind if this becomes one of those high-rotation titles once the DVD/download option arrives. It is, like its title character, smart, quick-witted, inventive and melodious."
I Am Not Madame Bovary (2016)
Bleed For This (2016)
"The film is determined to do so much, introduce so many, and wow with such abundance that viewers may feel more fatigue than wonderment by the time its two-plus hours are done. Even director David Yates... can't quite rein everything in."
Nocturnal Animals (2016)
Almost Christmas (2016)
Hacksaw Ridge (2016)
Gimme Danger (2016)
"Gimme Danger, as incomplete and biased as it may be, offers the perfect template for Jarmusch's hyperbolic thesis. It presents a clear-headed and knowledgeable film that still knows how to have fun."
The Eagle Huntress (2016)
"You won't see a more majestic shot in a film this year than in the documentary The Eagle Huntress, when a bird of prey swoops down from its rocky perch to land on the leather-clad arm of its trainer."
"As with nearly every other machination of this shopworn plot, how the psychiatrist turns out to be involved in this story would surprise only someone totally unacquainted with the medium of motion pictures."
Doctor Strange (2016)
Off the Rails (2016)
"Irving offers a mostly sympathetic portrayal of his subject, interspersing interviews with cute animations of McCollum as a kind of MTA Superman, and highlighting the inability of the U.S. justice system to deal with such eccentric criminals."
The Handmaiden (Ah-ga-ssi) (2016)
Driving With Selvi (2016)
"The film offers the chilling statistic that some 250 million women worldwide were married before the age of 15, a third of them in India. There are many more Selvis out there with less happy narratives."
Fire at Sea (Fuocoammare) (2016)
Mean Dreams (2016)
Jack Reacher: Never Go Back (2016)
Keeping Up With The Joneses (2016)
American Pastoral (2016)
Ouija: Origin of Evil (2016)
American Honey (2016)
"Do you enjoy bloated, repetitive and heavy-handed movies? If so, gorge yourself on American Honey, a coming-of-age film so drenched with simple metaphors about Americana that you expect it to leave a sticky residue."
Asura: The City of Madness (2016)
Complete Unknown (2016)
Kevin Hart: What Now? (2016)
