“..writer-director Ziad Doueiri's drama is a gripping, personal examination of a seemingly unresolvable conflict..”
by Joe Neumaier [New York Daily News]
“..the most frightening thing in the movie-maybe in the movies this year-is her loving decency..”
by Alan Scherstuhl [Village Voice]
“..The Attack is sad and resigned, but also tender..”
by Mark Jenkins [NPR]

by Andrew O'Hehir [Salon.com]

AUTUMN BLOOD :

“.."Autumn Blood" is such a film, an odd, unpleasant 2011 thriller..”
by Roger Moore [Movie Nation]

by Gary Goldstein [LA Times]

HECTOR AND THE SEARCH FOR HAPPINESS :
