Globe and Mail
A Tale of Love and Darkness (2016)
Don't Blink - Robert Frank (2016)
"Don't Blink is a friendly film by a friend - honest and historically aware, but almost unfailingly affectionate and attuned to the "spontaneous intuition" that, 92 years after his birth, still seems the governing principle of Frank's life."
Hooligan Sparrow (2016)
"Like its titular Guatemalan volcano, Jayro Bustamante's hypnotic film debut Ixcanul bubbles with the tension of a teenage girl at odds with her family's native customs, before erupting into a frantic and quietly devastating third act."
Don't Breathe (2016)
In Order of Disappearance (2016)
Southside With You (2016)
Kubo and the Two Strings (2016)
Unlocking the Cage (2016)
Hell or High Water (2016)
Edge of Winter (2016)
Miss Sharon Jones! (2016)
"We don't learn enough about Jones away from her cancer. And because Jones is not especially insightful about her disease (not many people could be), we don't learn enough about her within it, either."
War Dogs (2016)
Pete's Dragon (2016)
Angry Indian Goddesses (2015)
"It works, partly because the Indian cinema, accustomed to epics encompassing musical, comedy and tragedy, has a sprawling sensibility and partly because the script, for all its sunshine and sentiment, has actually built to its startling conclusion."
"While it's easy to sneer at the romantic subplot, it serves to humanize the characters and convey their intense fear. Otherwise we know too little about them - beyond the fact they are all impossibly good-looking."
How Heavy This Hammer (2015)
The Infiltrator (2016)
Florence Foster Jenkins (2016)
"Florence Foster Jenkins isn't perfect; bits of busyness can't disguise its simple arc. But it trips lightly through some pretty profound ideas about power, selfishness, vanity, generosity, and human frailty."
Sausage Party (2016)
Little Men (2016)
"By the end, Sachs has raised urgent questions about immigration, classism, gentrification, loyalty, family and nascent sexuality - but he's done so utterly organically, via 10 square feet of city. Lovely."
"Writer and director James Schamus turns Indignation into a minor period piece, a precise but seemingly pointless evocation of the stultifying conventionalism of an American university campus in the 1950s."
Multiple Maniacs (1970)
How He Fell in Love (2016)
"Meyers must have been truly in love with his story to carry it all the way to development. But for anyone else who watches the film, it will be hard to remember it as anything more than a brief, middling affair."
Suicide Squad (2016)
Phantom Boy (2016)
Café Society (2016)
Bad Moms (2016)
Jason Bourne (2016)
Life, Animated (2016)
Lights Out (2016)
Ice Age: Collision Course (2016)
Star Trek Beyond (2016)
"Star Trek Beyond is much more than a mere refresh. Thanks to Lin's steady directorial hand and knack for visualizing improbable set-pieces, the new film is bold, breathless and propulsive, a distillation of the action movie to its purest elements."
Under The Sun (2016)
