Antonia (Antonia's Line) (1995)
Don't Blink - Robert Frank (2016)
Operation Avalanche (2016)
"A send-up like this works far better for a few minutes on the small screen (see Documentary! or Drunk History); at feature length it becomes a stylistic exercise, like a kid mugging for the camera through an Instagram filter."
White Girl (2016)
"Neatly plotted and minimally staged, the movie marks Wood as a talent to watch, but Saylor deserves equal credit for her layered performance as the title character, a confident young woman who crumbles into a confused and frightened child."
"Two of the most hackneyed scenes in any movie are the comically interrupted suicide attempt and the lonely soliloquy addressed to a dead spouse's headstone; the title character gets them both, multiple times, in this slow and obvious Swedish drama."
Deepwater Horizon (2016)
The Dressmaker (2016)
For the Love of Spock (2016)
"Adam clearly lacked the perspective required to contain the story, which lurches into all sorts of odd and personal digressions, but as a celebration of the original 1966-'69 series this is first-rate."
"The motif of a faceless, imaginary spaceman following the boy around is overly precious, but what does work is Tipping's focus on sensitive boys hardening in reaction to their father figures (or lack thereof)."
Queen of Katwe (2016)
Hurricane Bianca (2016)
"Crowd-funded on a teensy budget, the movie is not without its charms, including Ryan Matthieu Smith's inventive production and costume design and a cast of unknowns who prove worthy straight men to Del Rio."
The Magnificent Seven (2016)
My Blind Brother (2016)
Varieté (Variety) (Jealousy) (1925)
The Magnificent Seven (1960)
London Road (2016)
Little Men (2016)
Those Left Behind (2017)
"[Finitzo's] script gives real weight and nuance to the characters' interactions and offers an interesting perspective on how grief alters people's courses, changing them from who they might otherwise have been. "
Silicon Cowboys (2016)
"Cohen solicits commentary from a range of tech entrepreneurs and aficionados (including Chris Cantwell, creator of Halt and Catch Fire); their excitement is contagious, fueling a dramatic rise-and-fall business tale."
"Tonally the film recalls Andrzej Żuławski's shrieking psychodrama Possession, though the key to that movie was its inexplicability and Wrona's movie, with its conventional horror backstory, is much less perplexing."
Bridget Jones's Baby (2016)
"The familiar events presented here were covered more thoroughly in the band's own 11-hour Beatles Anthology, though Howard has dug up some good ancillary concert footage that illustrates the chaos swirling around every show."
Author: The JT LeRoy Story (2016)
The Apostate (El Apóstata) (2016)
Complete Unknown (2016)
"Writer-director Joshua Marston gives Shannon a chance to shine as a character more pedestrian than the ones he usually plays, though the story is a little too thesis driven to build any dramatic momentum."
Other People (2016)
Mechanic: Resurrection (2016)
Hooligan Sparrow (2016)
"The chaotic audio and video footage of these altercations generates enormous drama even as it eclipses the issues at hand; though undeniably heroic, the documentary dwells less on its subject than on its own production."
Southside With You (2016)
A Tale of Love and Darkness (2016)
Mia Madre (2016)
The Hollars (2016)
The Light Between Oceans (2016)
Don't Breathe (2016)
"Fede Alvarez and Rodo Sayagues keep the plot twists coming, though as they accumulate the story begins to feel like a confection, succeeding not through any fresh idea but through the stubborn recombination of a few stale ones. "
Hands of Stone (2016)
"The movie's best moments are all intimate, tracing the rocky friendships that Duran (Edgar Ramirez) forged with his longtime trainer and mentor, Ray Arcel (Robert De Niro), and his most notorious opponent in the ring, Sugar Ray Leonard (Usher Raymond)."
Morris from America (2016)
"Though it seems unlikely to dislodge William Wyler's 1959 version, its story of a Judean prince (Jack Huston) who keeps running into Jesus of Nazareth (Rodrigo Santoro) offers plenty of action and spectacle."
The Bride (La novia) (2016)
"The best moment has to be when the heroine admires her own naked bust in a bedroom mirror and director Paula Ortiz cuts to a snorting, bucking black stallion in an electrical storm. Be still my heart!"
Men Go To Battle (2016)
"As with other mumblecore projects, the plot is secondary to mood, naturalism, and the relationship between the two protagonists, but in this historical context that approach is more of a frustration than a virtue. "
Sailing A Sinking Sea (2015)
"Fede Alvarez and Rodo Sayagues keep the plot twists coming, though as they accumulate the story begins to feel like a confection, succeeding not through any fresh idea but through the stubborn recombination of a few stale ones."
Don't Think Twice (2016)
