REVIEWS RATE:  Critics  Nothing's perfect, but it's worth seeing.    Readers  3 of 5 [Rate It]

“..one of 2013's most memorable movies, one that's strong enough to have been one of 1979's best as well..”
by Alonso Duralde [The Wrap]
4 of 5

“..it is an intriguing confection of a movie, announcing its influences candidly, but exerting its originality too..”
by Peter Bradshaw [The Guardian]
3.5 of 5

“..it certainly has all the pieces in place, from solid talent to an intriguing storyline to borderline perfect costumes and sets - but the end result falls flat more than once, and its sagging middle is only saved by its enjoyable characters..”
by Kate Erbland [Film.com]
“..deliriously funny and brilliantly acted by a cast of Russell returnees..”
by Justin Chang [Variety]
“..an infectious blast of funky jazz played by a terrific cast and a director at the top of their respective games..”
by David Rooney [Hollywood Reporter]

THE BRONZE :

“..simply by not getting the balance right, "The Bronze" seems to be lucky to have medaled at all..”

“..it's not much fun at all, but at least it's over..”
by Moira MacDonald [Seattle Times]
