“..you'll still be able to follow what's going on, though, because that big ending-which apes the sloppiness of real-life violence-is built upon beats you've seen in hundreds of movies before..”
by Alan Scherstuhl [Village Voice]

“..the stunts, escapes and fights are grim and grisly, but generic. We've seen all this before..”
by Roger Moore [Movie Nation]

“..the male characters here are too thinly developed for this to be a top-notch survival thriller, but Ms. Aselton knows how to get the pulse pounding..”
by Neil Genzlinger [New York Times]

by Joe Neumaier [NY Daily News]

KEEP ON KEEPIN' ON :

“..intimate and affectionate..”
by Sheri Linden [LA Times]

“..writer-director Claudia Myers presents us with an unflinching and complex character study of an imperfect woman juggling motherhood..”
by Martin Tsai [LA Times]

THE SCRIBBLER :

“..the script that Dan Schaffer adapted from his graphic novel can't seem to find a credible dimensionality for his story or characters..”
by Gary Goldstein [LA Times]

HECTOR AND THE SEARCH FOR HAPPINESS :

“..even with appearances by such dependable performers as Toni Collette, Stellan Skarsgard, Christopher Plummer and Jean Reno, the interminable "Hector and the Search for Happiness" will most likely inspire audiences to search for the exit door..”
by Lou Lumenick [New York Post]

DR. CABBIE :

“..it does so in a cheeky and charming way and, although Dr. Cabbie is clunky in places, it mostly works..”
by Bruce DeMara [Toronto Star]

TUSK :

“..it's watchable, fun, sick, sad and has to be seen to be believed..”
by Kevin C. Johnson [St. Louis Post-Dispatch]
