    The Light Between Oceans (2016)

    Derek Cianfrance's The Light Between Oceans is something like a film noir and something like a soap opera. Yet it's neither. It's also something like life, but not very lifelike. It's not that there's anything particularly wrong with it. It's beautifully shot, by Adam Arkapaw, and professionally cast with Oscar nominees and winners. read more...

      The Best Years of Our Lives (1946)

      William Wyler's post-WWII prestige project tapped into the social consciousness so effectively that it made lots of money as well as becoming an Oscar juggernaut (it won 7 Oscars out of 8 nominations, plus one honorary award). Mainstream critics not only proclaimed it a masterpiece, but also proclaimed it one of the greatest films ever made, a claim that sticks to this day. James Agee expressed his admiration for it, but also dismantled its many flaws, whereas Manny Farber famously called it "a horse-drawn truckload of liberal schmaltz." read more...

      Snowden (2016)
