If you follow my writings on film, you are probably aware that I tend to 
review documentaries and foreign-language films with a focus on 
politics. As a member of New York Film Critics Online (NYFCO), I try to 
catch up with commercial films starting in late November through the 
DVD’s and press screenings the studio's publicity machine churns out. 
Most years I go to NYFCO meetings and abstain on many categories for the 
simple reason that something like “Zero Dark Thirty” was beyond the pale 
for me.

This year I was pleasantly surprised by the number of quality films that 
came my way, including an animated feature titled “Inside Out” that was 
in some ways the best film of 2015. Over the next few weeks I am going 
to be posting reviews of some of the best starting today with a couple 
that are by no means political but speak to me on both on an artistic 
and existential basis since they deal with the question of aging, a 
preoccupation of many baby boomers. Just about all of the films that I 
will be writing about are still playing in local theaters, including the 
two considered below.
