Top 25 of 2016: 10) Nocturnal Animals 1

Top 25 of 2016: 10) Nocturnal Animals

NOCTURNAL ANIMALS REVIEWED “Nocturnal Animals” is my kind of revenge tale. Equal parts meta-fiction and F*** you letter to an ex-wife, director Tom Ford creates the best looking film of 20...

Top 25 of 2016: 11) Manchester by the Sea 3

Top 25 of 2016: 11) Manchester by the Sea

MANCHESTER BY THE SEA REVIEWED “Manchester by the Sea” probably has the best audio design of a movie in 2016. Listening to amplified sounds relays how uncomfortable Casey Affleck remains t...

Top 25 of 2016: 12) The Invitation 5

Top 25 of 2016: 12) The Invitation

THE INVITATION REVIEWED “The Invitation” floored me. I could call it one of the best movies of 2016, but that doesn’t pin down what makes this film work. Tying emotion to horrific events creates a kin...

Top 25 of 2016: 13) Arrival 7

Top 25 of 2016: 13) Arrival

ARRIVAL REVIEWED “Arrival” is a great Sci-Fi plot that doesn’t perfectly translate to film. What it does do is grind up classic Sci-Fi plots and mixes them together with 4D thinking....

Top 25 of 2016: 14) Hail, Caesar! 9

Top 25 of 2016: 14) Hail, Caesar!

HAIL, CAESAR! REVIEWED “Hail, Caesar” remains one of my favorite films of 2016. While heavily stylized and evoking the 1950s at every turn, the result is a picture not meant for a broad modern audienc...

Top 25 of 2016: 15) 10 Cloverfield Lane 11

Top 25 of 2016: 15) 10 Cloverfield Lane

10 CLOVERFIELD LANE REVIEWED “10 Cloverfield Lane” is the best “Twilight Zone” episode since Rod Serling shuffled off this mortal coil. However, it’s not “Cloverfield 2”. What the film serves as is a ...

Top 25 of 2016: 16) Morris from America 13

Top 25 of 2016: 16) Morris from America

MORRIS FROM AMERICA REVIEWED “Morris from America” is another one of the teen movies I loved last year. Playing at the young end of 13, you get the extra mix of a kid being sent to another...

Top 25 of 2016: 17) The Edge of Seventeen 15

Top 25 of 2016: 17) The Edge of Seventeen

THE EDGE OF SEVENTEEN REVIEWED “The Edge of Seventeen” is a great teen movie. All teen movies should be rated R. The efforts that go into appeasing a base that is too self-absorbed to get ...

Top 25 of 2016: 18) Fences 17

Top 25 of 2016: 18) Fences

FENCES REVIEWED “Fences” often gets called the African American response to “Death of a Salesman”. While I respect Miller, this feels rather trite. “Fences” is a st...
