“..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]
“..much of "The Attack," then, is less about politics or violence than about a man wrestling with the sudden and traumatic loss of his own identity..”
by Andrew O'Hehir [Salon.com]
3 of 4

“.."The Attack" is a mystery, but not the kind you think. It's obvious from the start who detonated the bomb; the only question is why..”
by Michael O'Sullivan [Washington Post]

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 :

“..involving violence, sexual assault, torture, and, above all, captivity, abduction stories are a catch-all for the women-in-peril narrative that is the core theme of so many Lifetime movies..”
by Molly Eichel [A.V. Club]

THE WATER DIVINER :

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

LITTLE BOY :

“..though occasionally sticky sweet and not always subtle, it's also a smart and very moving story..”
by Rafer Guzman [Newsday]

THE FORGER :

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