    Zobel's unsparing approach is justified. This film should be hard to watch - and it is. But it's also hard to forget.

    Black Swan is ridiculously over the top, but in a way that makes it fascinating to watch.

    This is the kind of intelligent, thought-provoking mainstream film that’s in danger of becoming extinct. Eye in the Sky is miles above the average multiplex flick.

    Although Lebanon is to be congratulated for its bold visual strategy and strong antiwar stance, the film becomes claustrophobic after a while.

    A film that's all the more intriguing for being virtually impossible to categorize.

    Put aside any hang-ups you may have about subtitles. As action flicks go, Point Blank is right on target.

    Is this a family film? No way. Does it include scenes that some may find painful to watch? You bet. Will you be entertained? Thoroughly.

    The Oscar-nominated No has the gritty feel of a foreign film from the 1970s. As such, it may take a few minutes for most moviegoers to adjust to its rhythms. Ironically for a film about advertising, there’s nothing slick about it — and therein lies much of its greatness.

    Arrival is science fiction in the classic sense and a film of otherworldly ambition.

    A Monster Calls is the rare film that addresses the mysteries of childhood without succumbing to schmaltz.

    The performances are spot-on. Ali brings depths of feeling to Juan, giving us a drug dealer we haven’t seen before. Harris (Miss Moneypenny in the recent Bond films) is uncomfortably authentic as an ultimately repentant junkie.

    It’s hard to imagine an actor more appropriate to portray Sully than Hanks, who brings to the role a bedrock decency and soulful introspection. And Eckhart is perfect as the droll, easygoing Skiles.

    Although The Gatekeepers lacks the stylistic inventiveness of “Fog,” it is nonetheless a compelling account of what can go wrong when power is unrestrained.

    Fury is a guided tour through a manmade hell.

    An old-fashioned film that slyly nods to contemporary sensibilities, Allied is an engaging showcase for Pitt and Cotillard.

    With spot-on vocal performances from Thewlis, Leigh and Tom Noonan, the film is nothing less than mesmerizing — and must viewing for serious cinephiles.

    Where to Invade Next isn’t his funniest documentary, but it may be his most poignant.

    One of Pixar’s most charming achievements.

    Burton delivers his most ambitious and engaging film since “Sweeney Todd” (2007). Although the story becomes increasingly complex as it goes along, the emotional payoff is more than worth it.

    This is very much an ensemble film, with Wahlberg, Hudson and Russell turning in performances that get the job done without begging for attention.

    Reeves is thoroughly persuasive as a killer who takes pride in his expertise. The role he began with 2014’s “John Wick” is tailor-made for his laconic acting style.

    It’s not necessary to be a classical-music buff to be charmed by this thoroughly entertaining film that never hits a false note.

    As the highly focused Hanna, Ronan - who had a breakout role in "Atonement" - is simply brilliant.

    An enthralling lament for an era in which beauty is in danger of becoming extinct.
    • 73 Metascore

    Best appreciated as a movie about being obsessed — a character trait that’s certainly not limited to chess masters.
