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

Review by Glenn Kenny
A metaphorical allegory of childhood, illness, death, and grief. And an often very powerful film.
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).
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.
Even if you believe in forgiveness, the way this movie stacks the deck to get to that place is, well, unforgivable.
Review by Susan Wloszczyna
Abundantly talented writer/director Maren Ade fully embraces the inherent awkwardness of a testy emotional bond and tackles it to the ground.
The most pleasurable aspect of 20th Century Women (and it's pleasurable throughout) is that it allows itself to be messy.
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 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.
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.
Review by Simon Abrams
If anybody had a spark of inspiration when they made Assassin's Creed, it certainly doesn't show.
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.
There is a reason it's a tried and true underdog formula, and it mostly works here.
