Masterminds Poster

Masterminds

Review by Matt Zoller Seitz

A heist film populated almost entirely by dunderheads; very funny.

Deepwater Horizon Poster

Deepwater Horizon

Review by Brian Tallerico

Everything here feels routine—more like an inevitability than a work of art or even a piece of entertainment.

Sand Storm Poster

Sand Storm

Review by Godfrey Cheshire

A fairly familiar critique of patriarchy from a humanist and feminist perspective, but one that's put across with some very impressive filmmaking skills by a first-time director.

Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children Poster

Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children

Review by Christy Lemire

The latest adventure from Tim Burton would seem tailor-made for his tastes but it's a convoluted slog, dense in mythology and explanatory dialogue but woefully lacking in thrills.

American Honey Poster

American Honey

Review by Brian Tallerico

Andrea Arnold's phenomenal work captures that propulsive teenage trait as well as anything in years. There is no yesterday, there is no today, there is only moving forward to tomorrow.

Denial Poster

Denial

Review by Susan Wloszczyna

In this true story about a Holocaust denier on trial, viewers aren't privy to the inner workings of the defense except in dribs and drabs.

A Man Called Ove

Review by Odie Henderson

A Man Called Ove is a morbidly funny and moving success.

Danny Says Poster

Danny Says

Review by Glenn Kenny

The movie, directed by Brendan Toller, is scattershot, sloppy, fake-clever and infatuated with its subject to the point of indulgence.

Amanda Knox Poster

Amanda Knox

Review by Brian Tallerico

A well-made, accomplished piece of filmmaking that works because of how it focuses such a large case down to its key players, thereby illuminating how something like this could happen to anyone.

Long Way North Poster

Long Way North

Review by Nick Allen

With its simplistic perspective, female empowerment adventure Long Way North risks being merely a nice gesture instead of a poetic, ice-breaking guide that points towards progress.

The Age of Shadows Poster

The Age of Shadows

Review by Brian Tallerico

At 140 minutes, Kim sometimes loses the rhythm of his spy thriller, but he's such a confident filmmaker—and his leading man such a magnetic presence—that he quickly gets its back.
