3 of 5

“..the film shares its essence. The sentiment is fanciful. The brushwork is competent. The subject is extraordinary..”
by Henry Barnes [The Guardian]

“..directed by Amma Asante with highly capable craftsmanship..”
by Colin Covert [Minneapolis Star Tribune]
2 of 5

“..Belle, to its discredit, often forgets to supply the racism, a serious mistake; the slurs are barely whispered, and you can't help but think the character's real-life story must have been a lot tougher..”
by Joshua Rothkopf [Time Out New York]

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

A WALK IN THE WOODS :

by Soren Andersen [Seattle Times]

WHEN ANIMALS DREAM :

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

POD :

“..a highly effective tale of terror that does a nice job of setting an unsettling tone from the onset and very rarely lets up until the film's conclusion..”
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..”
by Scott Foundas [Variety]
