"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)
"McKenna has an auteur's flair, impeccable comic timing and an ability to combine evocative dramatic truths with inspired flights of fancy. It all adds up to a movie that is well worth your time, and a budding director to keep your eye on."
Every Thing Will Be Fine (2015)
"Tomas and Kate's paths will cross repeatedly over the ensuing years, but this is not the story of an unlikely couple drawn together by tragedy. Rather, it is a multi-pronged exploration of the things we keep inside."
"There are many reasons to see French writer-director Philippe Le Guay's Floride. In a movie world dominated by stories focused on young, beautiful people, this moving drama shines the light on one rather cranky 81-year-old man. That's one plus."
"Everything is muted in Love. When not shooting raunchy sex scenes, Noé's preferred framing is the medium-close-up. He keeps his camera near his characters but seems unable to elicit the true emotional essence of sexuality he claims to court."
Valley Of Love (2016)
Bridge of Spies (2015)
"Bewilderment, resolve, disenchantment and blind fury are just some of the states [Blunt] goes through as the bigger picture comes into focus, providing Villeneuve's otherwise blisteringly macho film with an emotional anchor."
Wolf Totem (2015)
A Walk In The Woods (2015)
"A Walk in the Woods -- based on travel writer Bill Bryson's book -- could have been more accurately titled Grumpy Old Men try to go Wild. But even that makes this movie sound more promising than it is."
Sugar Coated (2015)
The Diary Of A Teenage Girl (2015)
Le Journal D'un Vieil Homme (2015)

How To Change The World (2015)
Bikes vs Cars (2015)
"Bikes vs. Cars is no cinematic masterpiece, and it veers toward cheerleading in the last act, but it's an important film nonetheless, that will get you thinking about -- and perhaps rethinking -- how you get around."
The Look of Silence (2015)
"The Act of Killing was profoundly affecting for the extreme disconnect between the killers' joyful recounting of the atrocities they committed. The Look of Silence probes deeper, into the uncomfortable truths behind such false bravado."
Testament Of Youth (2015)
"Testament of Youth... is a powerful story of the lunacy of war and its devastating consequences, but also one that refuses to dwell in despair and seeks to impart a message of hope - no matter how futile that dream has become."
"The director got his hands on a staggering amount of video footage, much of it shot by Winehouse's friends and family through the years, offering an up-close, unguarded view of the singer at various stages and in varying states of awareness."
