The Wait (L'attesa) (2016)
The Wailing (Goksung) (2016)
The Neon Demon (2016)
"This stylish shocker by writer-director Nicolas Winding Refn (Drive) equates physical beauty with the life force-the metaphor is intriguing, but not enough to compensate for his cliched portrayal of the modeling business as a glamorous snake pit. "
De Palma (2016)
"Paltrow and Baumbach simply walk De Palma through his filmography and collect his best stories. But this systematic approach has a nice leveling effect in that his more obscure, offbeat projects get as much attention as his signature films."
The Shallows (2016)
Free State of Jones (2016)
"American history is a mutable thing, shaped by our evolving sense of ourselves as a nation, which is why this Civil War drama, based on the little-known story of Newton Knight, seems so vividly modern."
Spice World (1998)
Central Intelligence (2016)
Finding Dory (2016)
"The elemental emotions at work and the childlike awe at the undersea world -- rendered once again in colorful, carefully researched, lovingly precise animation -- contribute to the sense of a story timeless and pure. "
Eva Hesse (2016)
The Idol (Ya Tayr El Tayer) (2016)
"While some of the plot points in this Mexican drama strain logic, there's an undeniable emotional truth to every step the woman takes; the icy, formal cinematography assists by accentuating her helplessness against a faceless bureaucracy."
Presenting Princess Shaw (2016)
The Uncondemned (2016)
"In their eye-opening documentary, directors Nick Louvel and Michele Mitchell reveal how the young, idealistic prosecutors, already overextended, uncovered evidence of the systematic violation, torture, mutilation, and enslavement of women in Taba."
Unlocking the Cage (2016)
"What constitutes self-determination and what responsibility humans have toward other sentient beings can't be answered by a single film, but this is nevertheless a valuable contribution to an ongoing and still-shifting conversation. "
Pelé: Birth of a Legend (2016)
The Love Witch (2016)
Me Before You (2016)
Time To Choose (2016)
X-Men: Apocalypse (2016)
Maggie's Plan (2016)
"The story grows emotionally muddled after Miller leaps ahead three years: now the two lovers are unhappily married parents, and the Gerwig character, for motives unclear to us and possibly herself, contrives to reunite her husband with his ex-wife."
Take Me To The River (2016)
We Monsters (Wir Monster) (2015)
The Lobster (2016)
"Lanthimos forgoes easy sentiments about the transformative power of love; this may turn off some viewers, but there's a certain liberation and even some relief in knowing that societal pressure to settle down can be just as cruel as loneliness. "
The Nice Guys (2016)
"Because this is set in Los Angeles in the 1970s, we're supposed to think back to Chinatown and The Long Goodbye and excuse the opaque plot, around which Black's eccentric gags float like seasoned croutons in bland soup. "
Money Monster (2016)
"With all the ranting about a "rigged" financial system, the movie certainly captures the zeitgeist, but it' so overloaded with action-movie tropes and tech-based plot contrivances that it begins to feel a little silly. "
The Lobster (2016)
"Lanthimos works the premise assiduously, especially after the Farrell character escapes and joins a band of rebel singles in the woods, and though the story slows to a crawl near the end, the poker-faced dramatization of a warped world is compelling."
Men & Chicken (Mænd & høns) (2016)
"Occasionally rib tickling but more often gut churning, this turns largely on the spectacle of Mikkelsen, a respected dramatic actor and a Bond villain no less, being cast as a furiously dyspeptic nerd who keeps running off somewhere to masturbate."
