Review rate : D+

“..unloading a sense of smug superiority while ignoring the issues it purports to address..”
by Sam Adams [AV Club]
“..the last 15 minutes or so of the film feel quite powerful and pack an emotional wallop that's quite rare and unexpected for such a gritty, visually stylish thriller..”
by Avi Offer [NYC Movie Guru]
“..the film is a bit too strident about some of the issues at play..”
by Benjamin Mercer [Village Voice]
2.5 of 5

“..the film feels overstuffed and overcooked, as if the filmmaker were trying to get too much out all in one go..”
by Mark Olsen [Los Angeles Times]
2 of 5

“..the film cuts with such precision that there‚Äôs scarcely any room to breathe..”
by Andrew Schenker [Time Out New York]
“..pic also boasts strong performances by well-cast up-and-comers, though its lack of star power, per se, likely will limit theatrical prospects..”
by Joe Leydon [Variety]
3 of 5

“..much of that exposition is awkward or overdetermined..”
by Rachel Saltz [New York Times]
3 of 4

“..a mere introduction to Sociology 101, but it's brisk enough to rustle the reading list and keep the conversation alive..”
by Joe Williams [St. Louis Post-Dispatch]

CHRISTIAN MINGLE :

“..a sweet romantic comedy that is faith friendly..”
by Donna Rolfe [The Dove Foundation]

MALL :

“.."Mall" is definitely worth a look..”
by Billy Tatum [AXS]

DARK WAS THE NIGHT :

“.."Dark Was the Night" doesn't break the monster movie mold, but does fill it to capacity with eerie atmosphere and creeping chills elevated by terrific acting..”
by Ian Sedensky [Culture Crypt]

BIG DRIVER :

“..if you do enjoy the once in a while thriller, and like to see a story that pushes you to think, then Big Driver is for you..”
by Nathan M Rose [FlickDirect]

SUMMER OF BLOOD :

“..Summer of Blood tries very hard to be cool, but instead comes off as strained and aloof, with a number of satiric targets it could have aimed for but just bypasses altogether..”
by Drew Taylor [The Playlist]

THE CULTURE HIGH :

“..an amateurish hand is in the term-paper-like voice-over narration and the inclusion of underqualified talking heads..”
by Martin Tsai [LA Times]

RUDDERLESS :

“.."Rudderless" is a competent, well-acted melodrama, yet in scope and ambition it has the modest and serviceable scale of the small, not silver, screen..”
by Michael O'Sullivan [Washington Post]

YOUNG ONES :

“..unfortunately this film is equally dusty, with a mishmash of ideas and self-conscious execution..”
by Joe Neumaier [NY Daily News]

BIRDMAN :

“..Keaton's terrific, off-kilter performance is just one of several in this dizzying, high-energy movie. A must-see..”
by Rafer Guzman [Newsday]

HOUSEBOUND :

“..creepy, silly, inventive, darkly funny and, at one point, mind-blowingly bloody..”
by Gary Goldstein [LA Times]
