Le meraviglie (2014) Matthew Eng The Wonders is a coming-of-age tale unbound from the expectations of a genre that it remains undeniably hooked to at its heart, so that it's also a revelatory portrait of a family, a region, and a way of life. EDIT

Trainwreck (2015) Matthew Eng If Trainwreck ultimately fails to match the remarkable, politically-informed comedic zeniths of Schumer's superb sketch series... [it] still frequently impresses by further acquainting us with the radically refreshing transparency of Amy Schumer, actress. EDIT

After the Storm (2016) Matthew Eng The performances of After the Storm are indeed exceptional across the board, including pitch-perfect leading man Abe, as well as Maki, who distinguishes her bitter divorcée role with a crusty, steely impatience. EDIT

No Home Movie (2015) Matthew Eng For a subject so deeply ingrained with sorrow, the punishing and purposely tedious nature of No Home Movie's structure feels entirely earned -- even imperative. EDIT

Embrace of the Serpent (2015) Matthew Eng It's hard to argue with an artistic vision as utterly distinctive as Guerra's. Even when his story stutters, it's hard not to be seduced by the sheer immersion of his filmmaking. EDIT

Heart of a Dog (2015) Matthew Eng Anderson is auteur, narrator, and guide, grasping our hands and settling us into her vast and gorgeous mind-scape through seamlessly-mixed media and an astonishingly enveloping sound design... EDIT
