“..it is supremely intelligent and moving and Rampling and Courtenay are superb..”
by Peter Bradshaw [The Guardian]

A WALK IN THE WOODS :

by Tom Russo [Boston Globe]

ZIPPER :

“..feels like an homage to the early work of Wes Anderson with its plinky soundtrack, solipsistic banter and emphasis on uniforms..”
by Sara Stewart [New York Post]

WHEN ANIMALS DREAM :

“..rich with tone but otherwise lacking bite..”

by Heather Wixson [Dailydead]

#LUCKY NUMBER :

“..obviously "#Lucky Number" will not appeal to everyone but for those that do find it entertaining, they will not be disappointed..”
by James McDonald [Irish Film Critic]

Z FOR ZACHARIAH :

“..the dramatic tension considerably less, in a movie that feels stranded somewhere between serious artistic ambition and the dystopian franchise-building of "The Hunger Games," "Divergent," et al..”
