Gulistan, Land of Roses (2016)
Mes nuits feront écho (2016)
A Kid (Le fils de Jean) (2016)
Roger D'Astous (2016)
"If you don't mind seeing where it's all going from the outset, you might be pleasantly surprised by the ways in which this sweet little film evolves into something more evocative than the sum of its parts."
Desert Cry (Déserts) (2016)
Smoke and Mirrors (2016)
Chez les géants (2016)
White Girl (2016)
Things to Come (L'avenir) (2016)
Boundaries (Pays) (2016)
An Eye for an Eye (2016)
Gimme Danger (2016)
"Along their messy path, they made some crazy music. Archival footage and photos as well as stop-motion animation round out the picture of a band that defied the cookie-cutter model of the music industry and refused to play the game."
The Handmaiden (Ah-ga-ssi) (2016)
"You have to stay on your toes while watching The Handmaiden. Like each of its central characters, Park Chan-wook's nimble erotic thriller has an agenda. And the South Korean auteur is always one step ahead of you."
Generation Wolf (2016)
Mean Dreams (2016)
"Seemingly an homage of sorts to Terrence Malick's 1973 classic Badlands, Mean Dreams takes viewers on a high-octane and jolting ride, with suspense that's pretty much unrelenting, despite a plot that is spare and quite the stretch in parts."
American Honey (2016)
Two Lovers and a Bear (2016)
Gun Runners (2015)
"Stakes are incredibly high for these men, and the outcome is far from certain. Ultimately, as this probing documentary shows, it's not about the destination but the daily struggle and the little successes that motivate one to keep moving forward."
Nitro Rush (2016)
Mon Ami Dino (2016)
"Films don't often surprise me. So that's one reason right off the bat that I really liked director Jimmy Larouche's Mon ami Dino. Then there's the fact that it also happens to be one deeply moving film."
Café Society (2016)
Hunt for the Wilderpeople (2016)
De Palma (2016)
"A Finnish DJ and a French architect walk into a bar: it doesn't sound like the most intriguing premise for a movie, but writer-director Mikko Kuparinen presses enough emotional buttons to keep things interesting in his debut feature."
Mia Madre (2016)
"It's all part of the fluid state of affairs Moretti is grasping at in this charmingly human film. He doesn't necessarily have answers; he simply wants to examine the messy, everyday contradictions of the cycle of life."
"Donovan's film would have been interesting enough if it were just a history lesson, but it goes deeper, exploring the eerie disconnect that takes place when people hand over the reins of their brains to an outside force."
I Am the Blues (2015)
"I was quietly blown away by Daniel Cross's new documentary I Am the Blues, which follows the Montrealer on a quest through the southern U.S. to track down the last remaining ambassadors of the genre."
Mr. Right (2016)
"The only surprise comes in the scattered moments of irreverence where it's actually mildly entertaining. The rest of the time this half-baked action-comedy-romance just feels like the worst of Hollywood clichés thrown together to see what sticks."
