Movie Reviews

  • this barrel-scraping spectacle with a twist of salvation is pretty cut-rate
    2 of 5 by Keith Uhlich [Time Out New York ]
  • there is honest feeling, genuine humanity and real intelligence in this movie, but there is also a sense of caution, of indecisiveness, that undermines its potential power
    by A.O. Scott [New York Times ]
  • the script never marries them into a whole, and the voiceovers end up being more cliched than clever

    by Betsy Sharkey [Los Angeles Times ]
  • it never feels inspirational - it’s too gritty and dark
    by Mary F. Pols [Time Magazine ]
  • it is a funny story. It is a tragic story. But most of all it is a human story, warts and all
    by JimmyO [JoBlo's Movie Emporium ]
  • in "Being Flynn," however, neither character gives us much reason to care who they are- or ever will be
    by Marshall Fine [Hollywood & Fine ]
  • hectoring monotony
    Review rate : C by Owen Gleiberman [Entertainment Weekly ]
