The Long Week Closes: Highest Review Tallies December 24, 2016

Below is a list of movies with the highest number of reviews gathered on CRU. I don’t have an exact list, private or otherwise, that keeps track of this. This list was compiled manually from browsing the ranked lists. It’s safe to say that the movies with the most reviews on Critics Round Up are the ones that became new releases after the website’s launch in 2013.

1. The Assassin (57)
2. Carol (54)
3. Goodbye to Language (53)
4. Jauja (50)
5. Toni Erdmann (47)
6. Cemetery of Splendor (45)
7. Elle (43)
8. Horse Money (41)
=9. Clouds of Sils Maria (40)
=9. Son of Saul (40)
=9. No Home Movie (40)
=12. Two Days, One Night (39)
=12. The Look of Silence (39)

And now, the weekly rundown. In case you missed the update to last week’s column, I changed my mind and decided to add Fences and Rogue One to the website after all.
