None of Hollywood’s recent offerings has lifted me up with the potency and grace of "La La Land", one of the year’s most effervescent samples of pure entertainment.

MPAA Rating: "R" (Profanity, Sexual Content, Adult Themes)

Director: Kenneth Lonergan
Cast: Casey Affleck, Lucas Hedges, Michelle Williams, Kyle Chandler, Gretchen Mol

Unforced acting couples with a nuanced, insightful script to tell a story that, although seemingly simple, is achingly complex.

Emotionally and thematically, "Moonlight" addresses universal subjects, and its power comes as a result of our identification with the characters.

With a smart, perceptive script and an arresting lead performance by Hailee Steinfeld, the film rises to the top of a crowded genre.

Represents an effective melding of visceral and intellectual filmmaking.

MPAA Rating: "NR" (Sexual Content, Nudity, Violence, Profanity)

Director: Chan-wook Park
Cast: Min-hee Kim, Tae-Ri Kim, Jung-woo Ha, Jin-woong Cho

One of the best neo-Hitchcockian mystery/thrillers to have emerged from any country in any language during the last few years, if not longer.

Harrowing, compelling cinema - perhaps not as wrenching as "12 Years a Slave" but not far removed.

It’s hard to argue with director David Mackenzie's approach because what he achieves is damn near perfect for this material.
