Eye In The Sky (2016)
"As the creepy title might suggest, the movie explores the danger of detachment in modern warfare, recording the complex moral and political debate among characters charged with making life-or-death decisions."
The Cool World (1964)
The Bronze (2016)
10 Cloverfield Lane (2016)
"This penultimate installment in the dour dystopian franchise offers stronger visual effects and more thought-provoking biopunk notions about genetic engineering than the two previous films, but even star Shailene Woodley looks bored."
Only Yesterday (2016)
"This stunning historical drama, shot mainly in black and white across the Amazon region of Colombia, focuses on a shaman who's approached at different points by white men seeking medicinal substances."
Knight of Cups (2016)
"The rank hypocrisy of conservatives using government regulation to shut down independent businesses is topped only by the white pro-life activist outside one clinic who shouts at an African-American doctor, "Black lives matter!""
London Has Fallen (2016)
In Harmony (En équilibre) (2016)
"Thanks to a taut script and two stunning, nuanced performances, this is a tense, unconventional love story. Dupontel excels in a fearless, physical role, whereas De France demonstrates the power of dramatic restraint."
The Fencer (Miekkailija) (2015)
"An affecting portrait of a decent man who risks his life to uphold a bond of trust with his students. Though squarely in the tradition of Dead Poets Society and The Bad News Bears, the film offers higher stakes and, consequently, a bigger payoff. "
Love Island (2015)
"In this painfully unfunny sex farce, a Bosnian man (Ermin Bravo) and his pregnant French bride (Ariane Labed) flirt with infidelity while vacationing at a cheesy "all-inclusive" resort on a Croatian island."
The Paradise Suite (2015)
The Wave (Bolgen) (2016)

The Witch (2016)
The Witch (2016)
Murphy's Romance (1985)
A War (Krigen) (2016)
Triple 9 (2016)
"Matt Cook's maiden feature-length screenplay-something about dirty Atlanta cops being blackmailed by the Russian Jewish mafia-is so murky it leaves the whole cast looking tentative, if not defensive. "
Magical Girl (2014)
"Writer-director Carlos Vermut distinguishes himself with his willingness to court melodrama; the layers of perversion, betrayal, and revenge verge on the operatic, but the action is played with impressive sobriety. "
The Last Man On The Moon (2016)
Eddie The Eagle (2016)
"Dee Snyder is charming and the movie is crammed with great archival footage of the band, ranging from their early days as a David Bowie cover act to their jamming onstage with Lemmy Kilmister of Motorhead on British TV. "
Touched With Fire (2016)
Rolling Papers (2016)
"Some interesting flash points emerge as readers try to get used to writers' open acknowledgment of drug use in print (of particular sensitivity are Brittany Driver's columns about pot and parenting). "
Eisenstein In Guanajuato (2016)
Hail, Caesar! (2016)
In The Shadow of Women (2016)
How To Be Single (2016)
Zoolander 2 (2016)
"The character's underlying malaise is a byproduct of aging and the compromises and deceptions of most long-term relationships, but the superficial resolution betrays the depths of emotion Farshbaf has developed up to that point."
45 Years (2015)
Fifty Shades of Black (2016)
The President (2016)
"A story at once timeless and contemporary, eventually pushing past the immediate matters of guilt and comeuppance to ask whether democracy can ever flourish amid an endless cycle of oppression and revenge."
"This magical Brazilian fantasy by Alê Abreu reminded me of Nina Paley's Sita Sings the Blues and Tomm Moore's The Secret of Kells in its crafty combination of simply drawn characters (the boy) and ornate geometrical patterns (the world)."
The Choice (2016)
