“..it is supremely intelligent and moving and Rampling and Courtenay are superb..”
by Peter Bradshaw [The Guardian]

A WALK IN THE WOODS :

by Todd McCarthy [Hollywood Reporter]

WAR ROOM :

“..are so heavy on broad pulpit pounding that it's challenging to get swept along by the story's message..”
by Tom Russo [Boston Globe]

ZIPPER :

“..on all counts, "Zipper" comes up short..”
by Katharine Pushkar [NY Daily News]

7 CHINESE BROTHERS :

by Sara Stewart [New York Post]

TURBO KID :

WHEN ANIMALS DREAM :

“..rich with tone but otherwise lacking bite..”

by Heather Wixson [Dailydead]

#LUCKY NUMBER :

“..obviously "#Lucky Number" will not appeal to everyone but for those that do find it entertaining, they will not be disappointed..”
by James McDonald [Irish Film Critic]

Z FOR ZACHARIAH :

“..the dramatic tension considerably less, in a movie that feels stranded somewhere between serious artistic ambition and the dystopian franchise-building of "The Hunger Games," "Divergent," et al..”
by Scott Foundas [Variety]
