The Edge of Seventeen is the kind of modest, funny teen movie that we don't see enough of these days.

Throughout, what makes All These Sleepless Nights distinct, beyond the three protagonists philosophical, artistic musings and their charisma, is the camera's ability to convey the state of intoxication and the dreaminess of the nocturnal juvenilia.

Always Shine (2016)
While female friendship can be a source of joy, it can also be uniquely cruel, and Always Shine understands this truth well.

Amateur (1995)
As its characters run through downtown New York it feels like the platonic ideal of a playful 90s indie film.

Nocturnal Animals wants to be provocative but its scattered parts all add up to something a bit silly.

Elaine speaks of love magic and seduction, and Biller's film has the same enchanting effect on the audience.

Elle (2016)
Elle makes a strong case for the actress as auteur.

Off the Rails succeeds in giving us a glimpse into a mind too easily labeled as "troubled" or "different" and paints Darius as a sympathetic figure following a passion.

The film is admirable in how it presents rural lives without any sort of condescension or melodrama. There's a kind of Zen quality to the leisurely pace with which Reichardt lets her onscreen lives unfold.

Toni Erdmann (2016)
In less capable hands, it could easily become a saccharine family fable or a gross-out comedy, but Ade manages to find her own strange niche, bolstered by some memorable set pieces.

Refreshingly, The Kindergarten Teacher offers a view of Israeli society that sidesteps the usual clichés.

It's curious about people in a way that's frankly old-fashioned.

In life and cinema, trans women's lives are often extremely difficult. Ozon is generous enough to imagine a path around their usual obstacle courses.

The Circle (2017)
I'm still wrapping my head around this film, but I'm not so sure if director James Ponsoldt himself knows what a comedy this is.

Yi Yi (2000)
I felt like I had lived it, and not just because of its nearly three-hour runtime.

Davies chooses to mark Dickinson's life story not so much by specific events, but by her character, and Nixon captures the many facets of it with bite and empathy.

At times filled with mist and awe, and at other times thrillingly heart-racing (arrows-they shoot right at you!), The Lost City of Z feels like a gem dug out from a time capsule.

A French absurdist comedy that feels wholly original, whether it's your cup of tea or not.

Beautifully animated (we're talking Studio Ghibli standards here), Your Name captures that sensation of waking up from a dream you wish lasted longer, or misplacing a name that's still warm on your tongue, but has just departed.
