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]

LATEST REVIEWS

SELMA :

“..one of the most powerful films of the year..”
by Chris Nashawaty [Entertainment Weekly]

AMERICAN SNIPER :

“..a solidly-staged but unexceptional picture, filled with overly familiar dramatic situations and a surprisingly blindered view of the world around its central character..”
by Drew McWeeny [HitFix]

ASK ME ANYTHING :

“..Ask Me Anything is a head above the glut of similarly themed and routinely rashly..”
by Nicholas Bell [Ioncinema]

BIG EYES :

“..despite its sharp feminist sting, Big Eyes never loses its light touch..”
by Chris Nashawaty [Entertainment Weekly]

PK :

“..PK movie is all that you anticipated, a paisa-vasool entertaining movie that will enthrall you for sure..”
by Priyanka Prasad [Filmibeat]

INTO THE WOODS :

“..will entertain youth audiences yet contains enough sly humor and narrative complexity to keep adults engaged..”
by David Rooney [Hollywood Reporter]

NIGHT AT THE MUSEUM: SECRET OF THE TOMB :

“..there's a serenity to museum visits, especially if it's a place you know and love. "Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb," amazingly, recaptures that feeling in big-studio franchise form..”
by Joe Neumaier [NY Daily News]

ELF: BUDDY'S MUSICAL CHRISTMAS :

“.."Elf" offers some slight, warmed over charms, but viewers would be better off catching one of the umpteen TV showings of the original "Elf" movie..”
by Rob Owen [Pittsburgh Post-Gazette]

THE INTERVIEW :

“..wild and wildly uneven..”
by Todd McCarthy [Hollywood Reporter]

TWO DAYS, ONE NIGHT :

“..it's a rare film of unforced simplicity that will stick with you for a long time. And it's honest right to its perfectly judged ending..”
by Kim Newman [Empire Online]
