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."
Callshop Istanbul (2015)
A Bigger Splash (2016)
Sleeping Giant (2015)
The Saver (2015)
Born To Be Blue (2016)
Patrick's Day (2015)
"Terry McMahon avoids the usual stereotypes in dealing with mental illness and brings a certain dignity to sufferers who aren't generally afforded such treatment on screen. Credit must also go to Dunford, Walker and Fox for not holding back on any level."
Whiskey Tango Foxtrot (2016)
Where to Invade Next (2016)
The Club (El Club) (2016)
The Lady In The Van (2015)
Zoolander 2 (2016)
"We also see young people etching out their own place in the world, and making their way in spite of the obstacles in their path. It's both encouraging and enlightening, and a reminder that sometimes the best thing one can do for a kid is listen."
Son of Saul (2015)
Ninth Floor (2015)
45 Years (2015)
The Hateful Eight (2015)
"Fans of the director's twisted verbal jousting and celebratory approach to violence will still get their kicks, but for the most part this drawn-out, overly theatrical, vapidly brutal exercise is a lot of fuss over nothing."
"The key word in Brooklyn is restraint. Director John Crowley keeps things impressively under control in this quietly moving Irish immigration tale that is already garnering well-deserved buzz as a serious Oscar contender."
Le coeur de madame Sabali (2015)
