RIDE :

“..Hunt, who also wrote and directed, didn't take her own advice. There's not a surprise in this entire movie..”
by Katharine Pushkar [NY Daily News]

CAS & DYLAN :

“..Priestley shows a steady eye for detail in his first time as director, although he lets the film stray too much into TV territory..”
by Linda Barnard [Toronto Star]

ANY DAY :

“..built on a number of ludicrous contrivances, Any Day eventually pushes its disparate pieces together into a misguided and oddly unsettling storyline..”
by Kate Erbland [The Dissolve]

HYENA :

“..there's something interesting in the way he [Gerard Johnson] deliberately denies his characters and the viewers any reprieve..”
by Martin Tsai [LA Times]

WELCOME TO ME :

“..a dark comedy that succeeds on its own itchy terms..”
by John DeFore [Hollywood Reporter]

FAR FROM THE MADDING CROWD :

“..works on all levels. Foremost, it is brilliantly directed by Thomas Vinterberg..”
by Claudia Puig [USA Today]

CLEVELAND ABDUCTION :

by Molly Eichel [A.V. Club]

THE WATER DIVINER :

“..the overstuffed story feels bombastic and contrived..”
by Claudia Puig [USA Today]

by Rafer Guzman [Newsday]

THE FORGER :

“..a movie where the colors blur sloppily..”
by Joe Neumaier [NY Daily News]
