1.The Lobster

Greek director Yorgos Lanthimos’ The Lobster is one of the strangest movies in recent memory—and one of the most hilariously (and surprisingly profound) ones as well. In this pitch-black future-society saga, a single man (Colin Farrell) checks into a hotel where, by law, he must find a mate within 45 days or be transformed into the animal of his choice. (His preference? A lobster.) In that wacko locale, Farrell’s lonely loser pals around with other equally strange sorts, and tries to forge a romance with a female counterpart, before eventually fleeing for the woods where anti-monogamy rebels are stationed. A deadpan dystopian comedy that also functions as a bizarro-world examination of love, relationships, marriage, and the basic human desire for connection, Lanthimos’ film is that rare thing in today’s cinema: an unqualified original.

 

2. Green Room

green-room

The most hardcore thriller in years, Jeremy Saulnier’s follow-up to 2013’s critically acclaimed Blue Ruin is another exercise in extreme, nail-biting suspense, this time about a just-scraping-by punk band (comprised of the late Anton Yelchin, Alia Shawkat, Joe Cole, and Callum Turner) that unwisely decides to accept a gig at a rural neo-Nazi music club. When they happen to witness the aftermath of a murder, they become captives of the resident skinheads and their leader (a terrifying Patrick Stewart), leading to a prolonged showdown which Saulnier stages as a series of quiet, panic-stricken moments and bursts of brutal violence—a storytelling rhythm in tune with the sludgy punk and metal thundering through the venue’s speakers. A relentless assault on one’s nerves that pummels viewers with the same all-out viciousness exhibited by the racists slam-dancing around the venue’s grimy, beer-soaked floors, Green Room (which we dubbed “mosh-pit cinema”) leaves a lasting mark.

 

3. Louder than Bombs

large_louder-than-bombs-poster-2016

Joachim Trier isn’t a household name in America, but the Norwegian filmmaker’s first two features—2006’s Reprise and 2011’s Oslo, August 31st—were startlingly incisive dramas about young men struggling with issues of adulthood, responsibility, and regret. His third feature, and first in English, is this sterling work about a teacher (Gabriel Byrne) and his two sons, married Jonah (Jesse Eisenberg) and disaffected high-schooler Conrad (Devin Druid), trying to come to terms with the death of their famous photographer matriarch Isabelle (Isabelle Huppert). That woman’s shadow, and the secrets she took to her grave, loom large over their present, fraught-with-friction circumstances, which Trier investigates with a novelist’s attention to his character’s interior lives. Employing subtle visual framing and numerous narrative devices (most forcefully, flashbacks), Trier’s Louder Than Bombs is less than explosive look at out-of-control emotions than a slow-burn portrait of miserable loved ones desperately trying to reconnect, as well as to reconcile their personal, artistic and familial desires.

 

4. The Fits

large_large_2ufleraq8jumvtxcj2gaobs2tkr

No 2016 debut has been as striking as Anna Rose Holmer’s The Fits, an immaculately conceived and executed small-scale indie about a young African-American girl named Toni (superb newcomer Royalty Hightower) who, while living in Cincinnati’s West End, spends her time working out at a local boxing gym with her brother, even as she increasingly finds herself drawn to the championship-winning dance team that practices in the same facility. Holmer’s precise aesthetics echo her protagonist’s detachment from both the pugilistic and dance cliques from which she seeks acceptance, and her slow-motion sequences of the troupe’s rhythmic routines have an overpowering, hypnotic grace and splendor. Fixated on Hightower’s subtly expressive countenance and her spatial (and emotional) relationship to her peers, the film is more than just a coming-of-age saga; it’s an expressionistic snapshot of a young girl trying to transcend her estrangement, define her identity, and find a place for herself in the world.

 

5. Hell or High Water

hell-or-high-water

 

David Mackenzie’s outlaws-on-the-run saga concerns two brothers (Chris Pine and Ben Foster) who embark on a bank-robbing spree in order to raise enough money to save their family farm from foreclosure—a conceit that lends the film a piercing timeliness. Nonetheless, the true power of this rugged genre effort comes from its stars and its attention to both atmosphere and character detail. As yin-yang siblings compelled to embark upon their mission by need, fury, and inherent recklessness, Pine and Foster share a compelling chemistry. And they’re complemented (and, in fact, surpassed) in the charisma department by the always great Jeff Bridges. As the just-about-to-retire sheriff hot on their trail, Bridges delivers one of his finest performances, radiating both wit and regret as an old-school relic who—like the criminals he’s pursuing, and the beaten-down land that he roams with his Native American-Mexican partner Alberto (Gil Birmingham)—is on the precipice of transforming into a ghost from a bygone era.

 

6. The Invitation

fjempje

 

For her first feature since 2009’s Jennifer’s Body, Karyn Kusama delivers one of the year’s great gripping thrillers with The Invitation, an intensely unnerving story about a Los Angeles man (Logan Marshall-Green) who, with his girlfriend in tow, attends a dinner party hosted by his ex-wife (Tammy Blanchard) and her new boyfriend (Game of Thrones’ Michiel Huisman)—an awkward situation compounded by the fact that Marshall-Green and Blanchard’s characters split following the death of their young child, which neither has properly gotten over. Kusama shrewdly lays out her psychological dynamics, and she imbues her action with an eeriness that suggests there’s more to this get-together than initially meets the eye, and which slowly builds to near-unbearable levels. By the time its revelations finally arrive, The Invitation has become a small-scale masterwork of sustained anxiety, and all the more chilling for casting its eventual horrors as the natural byproduct of madness begat by grief.

 

7. Embrace of the Serpent

7415547-embrace-of-the-serpent-2015-movie-trailer-t6a51c179

Something like a cross between a long-lost documentary and Francis Ford Coppola’s Apocalypse Now, Colombian writer-director Ciro Guerra’s drama charts two hallucinatory courses—during distinct, and yet eerily similar, time periods—through the Amazon. In both stories, a German interloper seeks assistance from a native shaman in his quest for a plant that reportedly has magical healing qualities, with both separated-by-decades journeys revealing the ways in which Western interlopers has affected the region and its indigenous cultures. Shot in beautiful black-and-white, Guerra’s trance-like tale is rich in ethnographic details, and its lead performances from non-professional actors Nilbio Torres and Antonio Bolivar Salvado Yangiama (both as the shaman) are unaffected and haunting. Though highly critical of the damage wrought by modern civilization in this untamed land, it’s a film that refuses to simplistically lecture, instead ultimately expressing a mature ambivalence about colonialism’s complicated legacy.

 

8. Chevalier

chevalier

Like her Greek countrymate (and frequent collaborator), The Lobster director Yorgos Lanthimos, Athina Rachel Tsangari is a droll social satirist, and her latest plays like an opposite-sides-of-the-gender-coin companion piece to 2010’s Attenberg. Here, Tsangari’s focus is a group of men on a deep-sea fishing trip who decide that they’ll pass the time by playing an elaborate “game” to determine which of them is “The Best in General.” To figure out who deserves that lofty title, these self-centered individuals set about judging each other in every conceivable manner. That, in turn, leads them to behave in increasingly competitive ways, all of which Tsangari depicts with a cool detachment that only further heightens the scathing absurdity of their loony decisions and actions. Mocking the macho male psyche with sharp observations about masculine aggression and ego, it boasts a deadpan wit accentuated by cinematography that places a premium on off-kilter imagery.

 

9. The Nice Guys

large_vnceqxbkydhl9luza03v2im16wb

Shane Black perfected the mismatched buddy-cop formula with 1987’s Lethal Weapon, so it’s no surprise that, 29 years later, he’s delivered another bickering-duo gem set in the L.A. underworld. In this thoroughly amusing 1970s neo-noir comedy, Ryan Gosling is a bumbling private investigator who finds himself paired with Russell Crowe’s for-hire enforcer on a case involving a missing girl and a dead porn star. As they make their way through a seedy showbiz landscape, Crowe and Gosling prove an irresistibly combative, cantankerous pair, with Crowe’s gruff exasperation clashing with Gosling’s doofus bumbling. Energized by a dry, wry cynicism that borders on fatalistic desperation, The Nice Guys is an idiosyncratic crime romp that builds humorous momentum as it moves towards its mystery-unraveling conclusion. Plus, Gosling’s impromptu Lou Costello homage is one for the ages.

 

10. Kill Zone 2

406x600_55

Don’t worry if you haven’t seen the 2005 precursor to this Hong Kong-Chinese import (also known as SPLII: A Time for Consequences)—aside from their titles, the two films share no relationship. And don’t worry if you can’t follow its myriad crime-saga plot strands, which involves a dying Hong Kong gangster (Louis Koo) who sells organs on the black market and plans to kill his brother so he can steal his heart, a Hong Kong undercover cop (Wu Jing) intent on infiltrating this kingpin’s gang, and a Thailand prison guard (Tony Jaa) trying to save his daughter who is dying of leukemia. What matters here is that director Cheang Pou-soi’s film features the finest hand-to-hand skirmishes of the year, with Wu Jing demonstrating deft martial-arts skills and Jaa—he of Ong-Bak: The Thai Warrior fame—bringing the concussive thunder via his trademark elbow drops and flying knee attacks, which peak with him leaping, knees first, through the windshield of a moving bus. The film’s melodrama and comedy (including a subplot involving a Down’s Syndrome-afflicted teen texting with a dying child via emojis) are overcooked, but Jaa and Jing’s fighting prowess make this a must-see for genre aficionados.

 

11. Don’t Breathe

dont_breathe_ver5

Director Fede Alvarez proved he was a gifted technician with his 2013 Evil Dead remake, but it’s his latest thriller that establishes him as more than just a look-at-me behind-the-camera showman. Alvarez’s latest concerns three kids (Dylan Minnette, Jane Levy, Daniel Zovatto) who, desperate to get out of their working-class circumstances, decide to rob a blind man (Stephen Lang) reportedly in possession of a stash of money hidden in his dilapidated home. Their plot, however, goes awry when that sightless individual turns out to be far more capable—and lethal—than anticipated, leading to a perpetrators-become-the-victims nightmare that the director orchestrates for maximum tension. Even when it eventually turns to third-act bombshells, Don’t Breathe is a work of superbly sustained suspense, employing its gorgeous widescreen visuals to deliver a bevy of heart-pounding thrills—and one that also, subtly, doubles as a commentary on the literal, emotional, and psychological decay that’s overtaken modern-day Detroit.

 

12. Ouija: Origin of Evil

ouija-origin-of-evil-online-free-putlocker

Just about everybody agreed that 2014’s Ouija, based on the popular contact-the-dead board game, was a dud. But this Halloween season’s follow-up, Origin of Evil, is an altogether different beast—a sterling ’60s-set period piece that’s only loosely related to its predecessor, and one that manufactures terror by first making one care about its well-drawn characters. In this case, those are a mother and two daughters who, while running a sĂ©ance scam out of their home, wind up in real supernatural trouble when the youngest of their clan (Lulu Wilson) makes contact with what she initially believes is the spirit of her dead father. Another superb chiller from director Mike Flanagan (Oculus, Hush)—mainstream horror’s best new filmmaker—about the peril that can come from grieving lost loved ones, this stylish work is a throwback in terms of not only its setting, but also its preference for hold-your-breath suspense and unforgettable otherworldly imagery over cheap scare tactics.

 

13. Hush

hush-2016-online-free-putlocker

Hush is the first of director Mike Flanagan’s three 2016 releases (the second is this September’s Before I Wake, the third is October’s Ouija: Origin of Evil), and even though it was only released as a Netflix exclusive, this expertly executed thriller generates an impressive amount of terror from its bare-bones set-up. At a remote rural cabin, a deaf-mute author named Maddie (Flanagan’s wife, Kate Siegel) finds herself menaced by a masked predator whose intentions don’t extend past wanting to torment and then kill her. Their cat-and-mouse showdown is plotted with a preponderance of rational decision making and a dearth of stupid what-are-they-doing? moments, and the material’s consistent character-based internal logic goes a long way toward maintaining its sinister suspense. There’s nothing particularly fancy about Hush, but it does what all great economical thrillers do: It maximizes the terror promised by its premise through deft narrative and visual storytelling.

 

14. The Neon Demon

the-neon-demon-online-free-putlocker

Nicolas Winding Refn may be international cinema’s most polarizing figure, a Stanley Kubrick-indebted filmmaker whose stylish violence is often put in service of celebrations-cum-critiques of twisted aggro masculinity. Here, however, he turns his attention to Los Angeles’ fashion industry for the story of a young beauty (Elle Fanning) striving to make it as a professional model. As befitting a Refn movie, The Neon Demon’s action is methodical, detached, and chilly, and it lavishes attention on the superficial glitz and glamour of its milieu while positing its protagonists as so hungry for the spotlight that they’ll do anything to achieve it. Eventually devolving into a prolonged, profane joke about the hunger for fame (and youth, and beauty, and power), the film has a coiling, serpentine malevolence that operates in harmony with its devilish sense of humor, all of which climaxes during a finale of sick satiric nastiness.

 

15. The BFG

the_bfg_poster

Steven Spielberg, making his first movie for Disney, from a script by E.T. screenwriter Melissa Mathison, from the beloved 1982 children’s book by Roald Dahl: The BFG seemed like a slam-dunk summer hit, at least until audiences avoided it in droves. As it turns out, it was their loss. Far from the debacle implied by its poor box-office showing, Spielberg’s latest, about a young British orphan (Ruby Barnhill) swept along on a magical quest alongside a Big Friendly Giant (Mark Rylance, in a motion-captured animated performance), is a consistently wondrous fable about friendship, tolerance, and togetherness. Unfolding in winding, whimsical fashion, it provides a cornucopia of enchanting sights while also delivering one of the movies’ all-time great scenes involving farting (featuring none other than the Queen of England). Spielberg’s lovely visuals lead the way, although it’s Rylance’s elegant and heartfelt performance as the title character—his expressive eyes conveying a wealth of poignant lonely-outsider emotions—that truly elevates it above this year’s family-film pack.

 

16. Midnight Special

midnight-special

Jeff Nichols is one of mainstream American cinema’s most exciting voices, and while his upcoming release—this fall’s Loving, about the landmark U.S. civil rights case that invalidated laws prohibiting interracial marriage—is already garnering Oscar buzz, his first 2016 film, Midnight Special, is itself a superb character study, albeit of the supernatural sort. Akin to a hybrid of Firestarter, John Carpenter’s Starman, and Spielberg’s early works, Nichols’ fourth feature concerns a father (the director’s favorite leading man, Michael Shannon) on the run with his son (Jaeden Lieberher), who possesses paranormal powers involving light-beams emanating from his eyes. They’re pursued by both members of the cult to which they belonged and the FBI (including Adam Driver’s agent), and Nichols orchestrates their flight from capture with a vigorousness that never interferes with his intimate portrait of their tough father-son bond. It’s an otherworldly mystery cast in human dimensions, and aided by great performances from Shannon, Driver, Lieberher, Joel Edgerton (as Shannon’s friend), and Kirsten Dunst (as the boy’s mother).

 

17. Deadpool

deadpool-gallery-03-gallery-image

Yes, Deadpool’s smarty-pants R-rated humor is of a juvenile, puerile sort. And yes, its incessant meta antics often make it feel like it was specifically produced for ADD-afflicted, smartphone, and Internet-obsessed teenage boys. Still, those qualities don’t overshadow the fact that, thanks in large part to Ryan Reynolds’ pitch-perfect performance as Marvel’s red-clad, quip-spewing assassin, this profane and ultra-violent film functions as a giddy rejoinder to the rest of the formulaic, play-it-safe superhero field. Charting the motormouthed antihero’s transformation (through cancer-curing genetic modification) into a limb-regenerating force of murder, Tim Miller’s blockbuster isn’t so much subversive—amidst its naughty behavior, it hits all the familiar narrative beats—as just rampantly silly and eager to indulge in self-deprecating, self-referential, ridiculousness. Making jokes at the expense of Fox’s fellow X-Men while subtly showing up that stodgy series at every turn, it’s an ideal adaptation of Marvel’s popular ne’er-do-well protagonist, and likely also a sign of things to come from the genre.

 

18. Men go to Battle

v1-btsxmja3otg5nttqoze3mtq5ozeymda7njgwozewmdc

The Civil War further drives a wedge between two brothers in this unconventional, evocative period piece from first-time director Zachary Treitz. In rural Kentucky, David Maloney and Tim Morton’s siblings find themselves in a desperate bind thanks to both a homestead that doesn’t provide enough to live off of, and their inability to sell off a large part of their acreage before the coming winter. While their jovial rabble-rousing at first comes across as an example of their closeness, later incidents reveal the underlying resentments slowly tearing them apart—and culminate with Morton’s character suddenly ditching his relative to go off and join the Union Cavalry. It’s a muted story that’s handheld aesthetics amplify its dreaminess, though more memorable still is its immersive soundscape of groaning floorboards, clicking footsteps along stone paths, and kindling crackling in nocturnal fires, which has the effect of imparting a potent feel for its tale’s long-ago time and place.

 

19. Knight of Cups

knight-of-cups-poster

Terrence Malick’s cinema has increasingly strayed toward the insistently poetic, peaking with 2013’s love-it-or-hate-it To the Wonder, in which spinning female figures and Ben Affleck’s narration-driven brooding pushed the director toward self-parody. His follow-up, Knight of Cups, affects a similar style marked by rapturously dreamy cinematography from Emmanuel Lubezki (winner of the last three Oscars for Gravity, Birdman, and The Revenant) that casts Los Angeles as both an entrancing wonderland and an ominous, illusive wasteland. At the center of its swirl is Christian Bale’s screenwriter, who embarks on a reflective quest for self-definition and purpose in a Hollywood milieu of fetid superficiality and depravity. While it treats most of its female characters as mere fleeting figures drifting in and out of Bale’s life (including Cate Blanchett and Natalie Portman), Malick’s impressionistic aesthetics are often thrilling, and allow him tap into a potent strain of celebrity disaffection, as well as a more universal sense of emotional, spiritual, and existential crisis.

 

20. High-Rise

high_rise_2014_film_poster

Tom Hiddleston winds up at the center of class-warfare carnage after moving into a swanky 1970s apartment complex in High-Rise, Ben Wheatley’s aggressively unpleasant—in the funniest way possible—adaptation of J.G. Ballard’s 1975 novel of the same name. In this socio-cultural cross-section abode, the haves enjoy the finer things in life on the top floors, while the have-nots scrape by on the ground floors. Such stark divisions soon come to a head, much to the chagrin of Hiddleston’s mild-mannered doctor. An opening sequence featuring Hiddleston’s character killing and spit-roasting a dog serves as an adequate preface for the ensuing, grim action, which involves various residents (Elisabeth Moss, Sienna Miller, Luke Evans) battling it out for control of the building, whose architect and owner (Jeremy Irons) inhabits a penthouse replete with an outdoor garden and a horse for his wife. It’s a stinging, surreal critique that devolves into blistering black-comedy madness.

 

21. 10 Cloverfield Lane

10-cloverfield-lane-759

Its title suggests a connection to the J.J. Abrams-produced 2008 found-footage monster mash Cloverfield, and its bombshell-dropping finale certainly furthers that affiliation. In most respects, however, Dan Trachtenberg’s film—originally conceived as a standalone film, unrelated to a presumptive Cloverfield franchise—is simply a nifty claustrophobic thriller that often feels like a lost episode of The Twilight Zone. Aside from its brief bookending sequences, Trachtenberg’s story is set entirely in the bomb shelter of John Goodman’s survivalist antagonist, where Mary Elizabeth Winstead’s young woman awakens (after a car accident) to hear that the world has been fatally contaminated during some sort of ill-defined doomsday attack. Whether Winstead can believe Goodman’s bunker dictator proves the crux of this beguiling mystery, which ratchets up tension with painstaking patience and care. With John Gallagher, Jr. as the subterranean shelter’s third inhabitant, 10 Cloverfield Lane develops and exploits its characters’ frazzled dynamics with anxiety-inducing results, and in the process provides the always great Goodman with a role of alarming ambiguous motivations.

 

22. A Bigger Splash

ABS_1sht_MainAltNew_Art1.indd

What a hoot. “I Am Love” director Luca Guadagnino reteams with Tilda Swinton for a sweaty, sexy, campy, all-around-delightful romp in the Italian countryside. That’s where Swinton’s aging rock goddess (suffering from some kind of throat infection) is staying with her young boy toy (Matthias Schoenaerts), when Swinton’s ex-flame (an electric Ralph Fiennes) comes to visit with his nubile daughter (Dakota Johnson).
Part of the fun of “A Bigger Splash” is just watching these actors play (frequently while naked or nearly-naked). The tragic-comic thriller elements act as wonderful embroidery, but it’s really Guadagnino’s keen observation of the characters and its accompanying decadence that make it such an unapologetic blast.

 

23. Captain America: Civil War

d0b27807-14bd-434a-9e8b-9eeb4550705b

At least in terms of scope and number of characters, “Captain America: Civil War” was the biggest movie yet in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. And for many it was also the best. In this outing, Captain America (Chris Evans), has to untangle a global conspiracy and also separate his feelings on a piece of legislature that would severely limit his actions (and the actions of the Avengers) from his friendship with Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.)
On top of that there are the introduction of several new characters to the MCU, including Black Panther (Chadwick Boseman) and Spider-Man (Tom Holland). Yet, somehow, the movie never feels overstuffed or unwieldy (criticisms that were leveled against last year’s “Avengers: Age of Ultron” fairly regularly), and ends not on the precipice of some kind of world ending but instead on a highly emotional showdown between two friends, who each have their own point of view.

 

24. Finding Dory

finding-dory-movie-poster-nemo-wallpaper

While not the out-and-out triumph of “Finding Nemo,” “Finding Dory” is a sweet, inclusive animated fable about finding your place in the world (and overcoming the impossible to do so). Returning director Andrew Stanton stages the movie ingeniously, painting Dory (Ellen DeGeneres, in fine form once again) and her aquatic confederates (some new, some familiar) into wonderfully restrictive corners and then watching as they flop, swim, dive, and dash out of them. It’s the best kind of sequel — one that expands the world of the original without making the earlier film feel smaller by comparison — and another dazzling Disney-Pixar triumph.

 

25. Hail, Caesar!

large_large_ux5y8qjkszufab5vsaqxhndmyt3

The Coen Brothers had been talking about making “Hail, Caesar!,” the unofficial third entry in their “Idiot Trilogy” with George Clooney (the other two films are “O Brother, Where Art Thou?” and “Intolerable Cruelty”) for a good long while. And now that they finally did, it’s hard not to be a little bit disappointed. It’s a minor Coen Brothers film, for sure, but even those are endlessly fascinating trifles.
Josh Brolin plays Eddie Mannix, a real-life Hollywood character, producer, and “fixer” who worked to keep the actors’ private lives private. He’s searching for Clooney’s missing star Baird Whitlock, and encounters a number of colorful characters, each of them played with this-isn’t-a-cameo vivaciousness by some big actor or another (Ralph Fiennes, Jonah Hill, Scarlett Johansson, Channing Tatum). When the movie is over, it’s not clear what it’s entirely about. But it was a fun trip none the less, especially given Roger Deakins’s honeyed cinematography and how gleefully silly even the biggest Hollywood star is willing to make themselves, all for the Coens’ off-kilter sensibilities.

 

26. Neighbors 2:  Sorority Rising

neighbors2_posterart

Mac (Seth Rogen) and Kelly (Rose Byrne) are ready to make the final move into adulthood. But just as they thought they have reclaimed the neighborhood, they learn that their new neighbors are even more out of control than the last. To evict them, they will need help from their ex neighbor (Zac Efron).

 

27. The Jungle Book

the-jungle-book

Disney’s uncanny adaptation of their own beloved 1967 animated riff on Rudyard Kipling’s stories somehow manages to honor all of its sources while still making a distinctive mark all its own. Director Jon Favreau’s blockbuster was a technological feat, since virtually everything in the movie besides Mowgli (played by charming newcomer Neel Sethi) was computer generated: all the sets and animals he interacted with were wholly imagined in photorealistic detail. And instead of being cold or too technical, the visual effects actually give the film more personality. At times, with the oversized animals and intermittent musical numbers, the film captures the painterly surrealism of the original animated film. And that supporting cast (Ben Kingsley, Bill Murray, Idris Elba, Lupita Nyong’o, Scarlett Johansson, Giancarlo Esposito, Christopher Walken, and Garry Shandling all provide animalized voices), it’s hard not to be wild about “The Jungle Book.

 

28. The Shallows

shallows

In a summer full of bloated, unsatisfying blockbusters, one of the biggest (and most welcome) surprises was “The Shallows,” a modestly budgeted but enormously entertaining (wo)man vs. shark thriller. There isn’t much to “The Shallows,” at least not on the surface (pun very much intended); it’s about a young woman (played by Blake Lively) who is terrorized by a giant shark while swimming off of a “secret beach” in Mexico.
But what could have been another B-movie more suited for SyFy Channel than cinema, is elevated, thanks to Lively’s graceful performance and a script that turns her battle with the shark into something altogether more existential and emotional. All praise goes to director Jaume Collet-Serra, a genre movie auteur, who stages the action beautifully. Just when you thought it was safe to go back into the water…

 

29. The Wailing

large_z3ebp9hjbvkakrf1kazx6yiyme9

A stranger arrives in a little village and soon after a mysterious sickness starts spreading. A policeman is drawn into the incident and is forced to solve the mystery in order to save his daughter.

 

30. The Witch

mv5bmty4mtu2njmynv5bml5banbnxkftztgwmzuwmdk4nze-_v1_uy1200_cr9006301200_al_

New England, 1630: William and Katherine lead a devout Christian life, homesteading on the edge of an impassible wilderness, with five children. When their newborn son mysteriously vanishes and their crops fail, the family begins to turn on one another. ‘The Witch’ is a chilling portrait of a family unraveling within their own fears and anxieties, leaving them prey for an inescapable evil.

 

31. Zootopia

In the animal city of Zootopia, which is populated by mammals, birds, fish, Invertebrates, reptiles, amphibians, Primates, Marine Mammals, dinosaurs, Arthropods, Insects, Mollusks, annelids, Echinoderms and Arachnids a fast-talking fox who’s trying to make it big goes on the run when he’s framed for a crime he didn’t commit. Zootopia’s top cop, a self-righteous rabbit, is hot on his tail, but when both become targets of a conspiracy, they’re forced to team up and discover even natural enemies can become best friends.

 

32. The Secret Life of Pets

Taking place in a Manhattan apartment building, Max’s life as a favorite pet is turned upside down, when his owner brings home a sloppy mongrel named Duke. They have to put their quarrels behind when they find out that an adorable white bunny named Snowball is building an army of lost pets determined to take revenge

 

33. Little Men

little-men

If you’ve ever harbored a passion, chased a dream, or felt the rush of creative choice, Don’t Think Twice will play like Shakespearean tragedy. Did I mention it was a comedy? Birbiglia sets his second movie inside a close-knit improv team who “yes, and” themselves on and off the stage. When one of the players nails an audition for a Saturday Night Live-like sketch-comedy show, all hell breaks loose. Why him? Why not her? Did that guy ever have it? Is life completely hopeless? Don’t Think Twice’s shaggy neuroses bounce with the rhythm of improvisation, giving gut-wrenching twists of fate comedic edge and “funnier” moments a puckering aftertaste. The observation as a whole can only be described as lifelike, whether we like it or not.

 

34. Everybody Wants Some!!

everybody-wants-some

What Dazed and Confused did for the hazy, hedonistic high school years, Everybody Wants Some!! does for the horn-dog college experience, a moment when lives reboot and anything is possible. On the first weekend before school, incoming freshman Jake (Jenner) joins his new baseball team brethren to party like he’s never partied before, rolling through disco joints, punk clubs, house parties blasting Van Halen, and every vice under the sun. The perfect cast keeps Everybody Wants Some!! light on its feet. Every foul line out of Powell’s motorized mouth kills. Hoechlin, Wyatt Russell, Will Brittain, and newcomer Temple Baker carve out specific personalities — a mix of macho, stoned, naive, and dumb as bricks — that are instantly recognizable. Zoey Deutch, as one of the movie’s lone female voices, levels the playing field with ambitious perspective. Save for a handful of broad scenes that belong in Wet Hot American Summer, Linklater’s “spiritual sequel” is a classic on par with Dazed. It’s the perfect kick-back-and-chill movie, a combo of fastball jokes and unexpected wisdom backed by a 1980s jukebox. You want to hang out with these dudes.

 

35. Wiener-Dog

wiener-dog-sundance-review-pic

Four vignettes — the story of a boy caring for his first pup; a semi-sequel to Solondz’s cult classic Welcome to the Dollhouse that casts Gerwig as the soul-searching, pet-stealing Dawn Wiener; a semi-autobiographical portrait of a college screenwriting professor (DeVito); and an elderly dog owner’s encounter with the younger generation — comprise this wickedly comical, existentially provocative look at life with pets. Solondz can be a cruel and unusual god to his characters, and while Wiener-Dog shocks, there’s a fanciful side, dashes of dancing-dog videos, and plenty of aw-gosh cuddling, which make a movie about an omnipresent wiener dog as touching as it sounds. Caring for animals changes who we are as people, and this film sniffs around to discover every possible way. Wiener-Dog is a low-key masterpiece.
