“..whatever their divides, what we see on-screen is a near-perfect film, love at its finest and its most fraught..”
by Betsy Sharkey [Los Angeles Times]
Review rate : A-

“..it's unforgettable..”
by Leah Greenblatt [Entertainment Weekly]
“..if I can't quite get beyond a kind of clinical admiration for the film, it's due to Kechiche's unadorned verite aesthetic, a cinema consciously bereft of the poetic flourish-for me a fault..”
by Keith Uhlich [Time Out New York]
5 of 5

“..'Blue is the Warmest Colour' is the most brazenly singular return the 'Couscous' director could have made, and the richest film of his career to boot..”
by Guy Lodge [Time Out]
4.5 of 5

“.."Blue Is The Warmest Color" is, by and large, a universal story, but the fact that this is a homosexual love isn't just icing..”

LATEST REVIEWS

THE INTRUDERS :

“..this is one of those movies that's not very good but not so offensively bad that I regret ever seeing it. No doubt, it's also something I probably won't remember in a week..”
by Brian Oliver [The Movieman]

FOCUS :

“..like a counterfeit handbag: It looks great but falls apart when you reach into it..”
by Rafer Guzman [Newsday]

A LA MALA :

“..thoroughly predictable, and despite an original setup, the movie never rouses the emotions..”
by Marjorie Baumgarten [Austin Chronicle]

THE HUNTING GROUND :

“..the stories are horrifying, but essential to hear..”
by Joe Neumaier [NY Daily News]

OUT OF THE DARK :

“..a horror movie with an anti-globalist bent that's more interesting than its halfhearted scares..”
by Sara Stewart [New York Post]

THE SALVATION :

“..delivering a highly stylized widescreen revenge picture loaded with weapons and driven entirely by "superficial action"..”
by Peter Debruge [Variety]

EVERLY :

“..the film isn't particularly convincing either as a rousing anthology of bloodsport set pieces or a deeply felt portrait of revenge and reunion..”
by Vadim Rizov [A.V. Club]

'71 :

“..the hard-charging debut feature from TV director Yann Demange, makes us live every vivid, violent moment with him, the threat of death lurking at every turn..”
by Peter Travers [Rolling Stone]

BLUEBIRD :

“..undoubtedly a remarkable achievement, especially for a first-time filmmaker..”
by Jordan Hoffman [Film.com]

THE LAZARUS EFFECT :

“..still, "The Lazarus Effect," clocking in at a brief 86 minutes, doesn't go far enough, isn't scary enough and has mad scientists who just aren't mad enough..”
by Joe Neumaier [NY Daily News]
