LATEST REVIEWS

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]

THE GAMBLER :

“..a slick remake of the gritty original is marked by sharp performances..”
by Todd McCarthy [Hollywood Reporter]

MR. TURNER :

“..an ecstatically beautiful and exquisitely detailed portrait of the artist as a cantankerous middle-aged man..”
by Scott Foundas [Variety]

SONG OF THE SEA :

“..a gorgeously rendered animated feature from Ireland..”
by Boyd van Hoeij [Hollywood Reporter]

ANNIE :

“..more of a facelift than an update, the pic dusts off some old songs, adds a few desultory stabs at new ones, and stuffs the frame with shiny upscale gadgets that scream "modern"..”
by Ronnie Scheib [Variety]

THE SANTA CON :

“..this movie was mostly about crime and lies and betrayal and sticking your nose into other people's business..”
by Jill O'Rourke [Crushable]

THE CHRISTMAS PARADE :

“..the movie takes the standard "girl has wrong boy, girl gets right boy" story and simply fills in the blanks..”
by Tom Conroy [Media Life Magazine]

NICK OFFERMAN: AMERICAN HAM :

“..a solid comedy special--with stylish prerecorded title sequences for each new Tip--but it lacks some of the inventiveness or surprise..”
by Kyle Burton [indieWIRE]

AFTER THE FALL :

“.."After the Fall" belongs to a type of movie that is too lazy to connect the dots and fill in the blanks between its supposedly teachable moments..”
by Stephen Holden [NY Times]

THE COLOR OF TIME :

“..for all the experimentalism of its conception, falls some way short here, and ends up an irreproachably tasteful, easily digestible but an unsurprising, undemanding watch..”
by Jessica Kiang [The Playlist]
