"Loev succeeds because of its fine actors and the beautiful scenery. Shot in just 16 days, it's a small miracle that this film even exists to tell a story that may never even be seen in its home country."
"There is no doubt that Abramovic is bold as she puts her physical and mental self on raw display through some intense situations. The cinematography in itself is beautifully psychedelic and offers some transcendence in its own right."
Asperger's Are Us (2016)
We Are X (2016)
"We Are X is a sometimes thrilling, not too terribly deep portrait of a band who perform the role of rock n roll messiah about as well as humanly possible. By the end, don't be surprised if you are converted."
Silicon Cowboys (2016)
"Silicon Cowboys is a fun watch but it struggles to find conflict other than their battle with IBM (which Compaq more or less won) and the ouster of one executive (about which we could have learned a little bit more)."
Bodkin Ras (2016)
"The structure and tone of Bodkin Ras makes for a unique experience, refreshingly leaving us with more questions than answers. It has elements of Albert Camus' The Stranger and is scored beautifully by Mohsen Namjoo"
Knight of Cups (2016)
Pee-wee's Big Holiday (2016)
Hello, My Name is Doris (2016)
Don't Think Twice (2016)
Born To Be Blue (2016)
Teenage Cocktail (2016)
Midnight Special (2016)
"Nichols' restraint is on-point, his pacing measured, his withholding of information wise. That said, it is to his lasting credit that the reveals work, that the coda is pitch perfect, that the haunted melancholy is both familiar and welcome. "
The Greasy Strangler (2016)
"The film is hilarious at times, revolting at others, a slasher rom-com turned on its head, set to an awesome original electronic score. At the very least Michaels' and Elobar's on-screen dynamic is worth the hour and a half."
Sing Street (2016)
Everybody Wants Some!! (2016)
Miss Sharon Jones! (2016)
"If you somehow stumble into this film without knowing the music of Sharon Jones & the Dap-Kings, it's hard to imagine that you'd walk out with anything but the desire to go buy all of their albums. "
In a Valley of Violence (2016)
"In a Valley of Violence is just downright entertaining, with all the tropes of a Sergio Leone-esque gunslinger flick without being gratuitously explicit in the formulaic recreation of probably the most enduring of all the American genre."
"When [Robbins] stares directly at Berlinger and tells him he is simply driven to help people reshape their lives, you have no choice but to believe him, even if you can't piece together all of the exact why and how."
War on Everyone (2016)
Hardcore Henry (2016)
Creative Control (2016)
"[Zootopia is] incredibly entertaining in the beginning as we see how different animals live in different parts of Zootopia that feel very human, indeed... It's the dark middle part that is hard to reconcile in a Disney movie."
"Hitchcock's ability to balance art and entertainment seems almost Shakespearean at times, and this thing will have you watching Shadow of a Doubt or The Birds for the first or the 501st time. Nothing wrong with that."
The Teller and the Truth (2016)
Touched With Fire (2016)
The Automatic Hate (2016)
Hail, Caesar! (2016)
Lazer Team (2016)
The Witch (2016)
The Revenant (2015)
The Big Short (2015)
"The Big Short practically backflips on this narrative tightrope, remaining engaging while engaging complicated ideas, forcing the viewer to root for genuinely loathsome folks who are only mildly less awful than everyone else."
"For all of its humor and charm and thrilling dogfights and genuinely teary moments (I'm not made of stone, people), The Force Awakens revels in its derivative nature, in its open-armed embrace of warm nostalgia."
The Program (2016)
My All American (2015)
Man Up (2015)
