Miles Ahead (2016)
Swiss Army Man (2016)
Neon Bull (Boi Neon) (2016)
Hunt for the Wilderpeople (2016)
"Waititi looks for humor in quirks of character and degrees of stubbornness, and the natural challenges of Crump's wilderness journey generate a succession of belly laughs onscreen as the gruff old man scraps with the loudmouthed kid."
"The story originated in 1965 as a semi-autobiographical novel by Albertine Sarrazin, which was adapted to the screen three years later; this new version feels fresh despite the story's previous incarnations and familiar French themes."
"Any such novelty is undercut by the dull certainty that, like the [Wedding Crashers] this one will end with a joyous ceremony and a validation of marriage. Mike and Dave may need wedding dates, but the producers need a date movie."
The Secret Life of Pets (2016)
"Writer-director Nitzan Giladi understands the myriad reactions of "normal" people to the developmentally disabled but betrays his heroine with a condescending scene in which she dons a bridal gown made of toilet paper rolls. "
Pervert Park (2015)
Terre battue (2014)
Our Kind of Traitor (2016)
The Legend of Tarzan (2016)
The BFG (2016)
"The extravagant expense of this Steven Spielberg production is evident in every frame, but no amount of money or technical trickery can make up for a story lacking any dramatic tension or a sympathetic protagonist."
"What drives the narrative is the musicians' mutual desire to forge meaningful connections across cultures, an affirmative answer to Leonard Bernstein's question of whether music can truly serve as a "universal language.""
The Sugarland Express (1974)
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)
