The elegant widescreen compositions and use of light and shadows are strongly reminiscent of Seven and Zodiac, and the film's eerie, disconcerting mood brings to mind HBO's True Detective.

Phoenix (2015)
The movie isn't a thriller, but it still generates a strange sort of emotional suspense - an incredibly intense drama that makes you hold your breath.

Fantastic Four is a synthetic bum-out, an assembly-line product, a movie a group of people made just because they could.

This iconoclastic filmmaker seduces you with ridiculous laughs, then sends you home contemplating your mortality and your place in the world.

Taken on its own, as a stand-alone dark comedy about existential angst, Irrational Man is a wobbly enterprise. But view it in context, as a Woody Allen film, and the plot thickens.

Ardor (2015)
Here is a movie that ends with a can't-miss scenario - a siege on a farmhouse in which the heroes are vastly outnumbered and outgunned - yet still fails to ever quicken your pulse.

Mr. Holmes (2015)
Sherlock Holmes may have never really walked the earth, but Mr. Holmes humanizes him to such a degree, you walk out of the theater practically convinced you've just watched a biopic.

Directors Jon Garaño and Jose Mari Goenaga have said they were aiming for a cross between Hitchcock and Kieslowski, which is a perfect way to describe this lovely film's enthralling pull.

The Wolfpack (2015)
Whether they are dancing exuberantly to the cheesy 1980s pop hit Tarzan Boy or celebrating Halloween in their tiny living room, these kids figured out how to not only survive, but thrive. Sometimes, with a little luck and a lot of love, joy finds a way.

Dope (2015)
Here is the rare movie overstuffed with memorable moments that would have been better if there had been fewer of them.

Inside Out (2015)
Kids will be engaged, but it's the older viewers - people who have lived and felt a little longer than 11-year-olds - who will most appreciate this marvelous, ingenious work of art.

In the faces of these men and women, ranging in age from their 20s to their 40s and spread out everywhere from Los Angeles to Manchester, you can see the genuine terror they suffered - and, in some cases, continue to suffer.

Ilusión (2013)
This is an often hilarious comedy about the fate of a man in love with art and its potential to change the world, but frustrated by his lack of resources to give voice to his ideas.

Tomorrowland (2015)
Tomorrowland is a crazy, disjointed mess. But it's the good sort of crazy, and it's the sort of mess you want to lose yourself in.

This is a huge yet surprisingly fleet and brisk picture that celebrates the visceral, primal pleasures of movies.

The D Train (2015)
The movie flirts with a great darkness about disillusionment and self-loathing even as it races around spinning comedic plates. Too bad the filmmakers lose their nerve by film's end.

You get the feeling there's much more to this relationship than we've been shown, but for fans of Refn's work, the documentary makes for a provocative portrait of an artist racked by angst.

About Elly (2015)
About Elly is an exploration of human nature and how sometimes, without intending to, we hurt the ones we love most - including ourselves.

Ex Machina (2015)
Garland's primary concern is his flesh-and-blood characters, even though they are not nearly as showy (or beautiful) as his main attraction, the vulnerable, delicate girl with a heart of steel and wires.

The Salt of the Earth is a celebration of the power of art to change the world, as well as an exploration of the considerable toll gifted artists sometimes pay for their talents.

True Story (2015)
By film's end, True Story is less about the evil of which people are capable than the way we manipulate and act, sometimes unconsciously, in order to get what we want.

Manos Sucias (2015)
Manos sucias culminates with the expected arrival of horrific savagery but not from the direction you were expecting.

White God (2015)
It all pays off with an astounding, extended climax that is as rousing and exciting as it is frightening - one of the most surreal experiences I've ever had watching a movie.

In an Abel Ferrara movie, this sort of damaged, raging, unrepentant bull passes for an antihero.

While We're Young starts off as an empathetic, funny look at middle age and winds up as profound and schematic as a Neil Simon play - or, for the younger set, an episode of The New Girl.
