REVIEWS RATE:  Critics  Go! Watch this movie. You'll regret if not seeing it.    Readers  5 of 5 [Rate It]

“..ultimately more endurance test than entertainment..”
by Gary Goldstein [LA Times]
4 of 5

“..three wonderfully warm performances and a vivid grasp of rich, local flavour provide Anurag Barsu's Barfi! with a wildly romantic ambience..”
by Simon Foster [sbs.com.au]
3 of 4

“..is marvellous, speaking even when silent..”
by Shubhra Gupta [The Indian Express]
“..Bollywood isn't afraid to be mawkish. "Barfi!" is at times, though not noticeably more so than most Hindi movies, despite its premise of special lovers with a special lesson to teach..”
by Rachel Saltz [NY Times]
“..Anurag Basu, in a welcome change from the typical Bollywood saga, has given us a singular love story - and an unforgettable character - in Barfi..”
by Lisa Tsering [Hollywood Reporter]
3.5 of 5

“..a well-crafted script with an intriguing back-and-forth narrative but it all goes south towards the end..”
by Raja Sen [rediff.com]

LATEST REVIEWS

THE TRANSPORTER REFUELED :

“..this film is so stupid it may burst your appendix..”
by Colin Covert [Minneapolis Star Tribune]

BEFORE WE GO :

“..Evans and Eve are always charming, but Brooke's real-world problems ring false in a story held together by chintzy fatalism and the logic of a first draft..”
by David Ehrlich [Time Out New York]

BREAK POINT :

“..Jay Karas doesn't exactly reinvent the wheel as he puts this odd couple through the paces of getting in shape and reconciling old wounds, but he's helped by some laugh-out-loud quirk in Gene Hong's screenplay, nice comic chemistry between the two leads..”
by Sara Stewart [New York Post]

STEVE JOBS: MAN IN THE MACHINE :

“..sharp as always from Oscar-winning director Alex Gibney..”
by Joe Neumaier [NY Daily News]

CHLOE AND THEO :

“..borrowing themes from "Candide," it makes us wonder why bad things happen to good people. Including movie audiences..”
by Colin Covert [Minneapolis Star Tribune]

BLOODSUCKING BASTARDS :

“..the film takes a long time to get going because of all the prolonged, glib chit-chat that loses whatever satirical edge it might have initially possessed..”
by Michael Rechtshaffen [LA Times]

CONTRACTED: PHASE II :

“..has contracted many of the same problems with the first film - it's plagued with pacing and character issues - but still has enough gags for the home video audience..”
by Brad Miska [Bloody Disgusting]

EVEREST :

“..in narrative terms it's messy - as true stories tend to be. The dramatic focus is split between around half a dozen characters based on real people and it's not clear who we should root for..”
by Peter Bradshaw [The Guardian]

BEASTS OF NO NATION :

“..artful, accomplished but not entirely sustained adaptation..”
by Justin Chang [Variety]

45 YEARS :

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