Review rate : B

“..without the humor, August: Osage County would still feature interesting characters and worthwhile subtext, but the ugliness would be too much to bear..”
by Matt Goldberg [Collider]
Review rate : B-

“..I don't think I'd call "August: Osage County" a bad film, but I'm damn sure I wouldn't call it a great one..”
by Drew McWeeny [HitFix]
“..a solid reworking of the Broadway hit, though even with this high-wattage cast some electricity is missing..”
by David Rooney [Hollywood Reporter]
Review rate : A-

“..a beautifully open turn from Nicholson, cracking dialogue, unexpected humor, and one of the best dinner-set knock-down-drag-out family arguments ever put to screen..”
by Kate Erbland [Film School Rejects]
Review rate : C-

“..'Osage County' still turns out be an exhausting, screechy drama, in which a lot of very good actors work very hard, and yet produce so little as a result..”

7 CHINESE BROTHERS :

“..feels like an homage to the early work of Wes Anderson with its plinky soundtrack, solipsistic banter and emphasis on uniforms..”
by Sara Stewart [New York Post]

WHEN ANIMALS DREAM :

“..rich with tone but otherwise lacking bite..”
by Jordan Hoffman [NY Daily News]

POD :

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..”
