Silence Poster

Silence

Review by Matt Zoller Seitz

Martin Scorsese's film about Jesuit priests in 17th century Japan is a punishing experience and monumental work.

A Monster Calls Poster

A Monster Calls

Review by Glenn Kenny

A metaphorical allegory of childhood, illness, death, and grief. And an often very powerful film.

Patriots Day Poster

Patriots Day

Review by Sheila O'Malley

The hero of Patriots Day is the community of Boston, not a fictional guy played by a movie star (albeit a famous Bostonian).

Hidden Figures Poster

Hidden Figures

Review by Odie Henderson

It deserves to make as much money as any planet in the Marvel Universe does. This is one of the year's best films.

Passengers Poster

Passengers

Review by Glenn Kenny

Even if you believe in forgiveness, the way this movie stacks the deck to get to that place is, well, unforgivable.

Toni Erdmann Poster

Toni Erdmann

Abundantly talented writer/director Maren Ade fully embraces the inherent awkwardness of a testy emotional bond and tackles it to the ground.

20th Century Women Poster

20th Century Women

Review by Sheila O'Malley

The most pleasurable aspect of 20th Century Women (and it's pleasurable throughout) is that it allows itself to be messy.

I, Daniel Blake Poster

I, Daniel Blake

Review by Christy Lemire

Returning to filmmaking after saying he was retiring in 2014, the 80-year-old Ken Loach rails against the system with his trademark style of stripped-down social realism.

Fences Poster

Fences

Review by Odie Henderson

Fences is a film about how our environment shapes us, and how, no matter how noble their intentions, our parents can't help but mess us up in some fashion, just as their parents had done for them.

Julieta Poster

Julieta

Review by Godfrey Cheshire

A film of such quietly assured mastery that it reminds you American cinema today has virtually no one comparable to Almodovar.

Assassin's Creed Poster

Assassin's Creed

Review by Simon Abrams

If anybody had a spark of inspiration when they made Assassin's Creed, it certainly doesn't show.

Why Him? Poster

Why Him?

Review by Christy Lemire

After an increasing cavalcade of flatly crass visual gags featuring high-tech toilets, moose urine and poorly-timed sexual shenanigans, Why Him? collapses the way so many R-rated comedies do.

Sing Poster

Sing

Review by Susan Wloszczyna

There is a reason it's a tried and true underdog formula, and it mostly works here.
