GONE GIRL :

“..expertly crafted entertainment, but falls short of Fincher's finest..”
by Todd McCarthy [Hollywood Reporter]

AUTUMN BLOOD :

“.."Autumn Blood" is such a film, an odd, unpleasant 2011 thriller..”
by Roger Moore [Movie Nation]

by Gary Goldstein [LA Times]

HECTOR AND THE SEARCH FOR HAPPINESS :

by Drew Hunt [Slant Magazine]
