Reviews: The Jungle Book, Criminal, and two fine Canadian films

Also films about jazz legend Miles Davis, gun talk in a Barbershop and ethical dilemmas from Romania and Denmark

The Boss is crass and Everybody Wants Some pleases but Hank Williams gets a bland bio pic

Also a thriller from Argentina, The Clan, a strange form of recovery from grief, Demolition, and a rigorous look at right-wing media, The Brainwashing of My Dad

Smart sci-fi in Midnight Special, Spike Lee’s gun rant in Chi-Raq and a Thai mystery

Also a charming comedy from Quebec and a women’s rights story from Turkey

Batman v Superman, drones making war in Eye in the Sky and a second Big Fat Greek Wedding

Plus a jazz casualty, Beethoven’s 9th and angst in Hollywood and on the mating chase

Two thrillers and a charmer: 10 Cloverfield Lane, River, and The Little Prince

Also Only Yesterday, a little-seen animated film from Japan, and Kinderwald, an fairy tale for adults about pioneering immigrants

Tina Fey goes to war; Judy Hopps goes to Zootopia and cultures clash in the Amazon

Also a Norwegian disaster movie, The Wave, machine gun attacks in London Has Fallen and a killer barber in The Legend of Barney Thompson

On Oscar weekend, six new movies arrive with gods, ski jumpers, a mermaid and Michael Moore

Also dirty cops, Freudian fears on the prairie and a gem about conflict in the Balkans

Watching Jesse Owens in Race, fear and religion in The Witch and bi-polar angst in Touched With Fire

Also there’s a short documentary series with six absolutely up to date controversies

Deadpool high up Vancouver's viaduct, Zoolander back again and a Canadian kid classic remade

And note the extreme sports, some of them brand new, and the environmental issues on view at the Mountain Film Festival
