THE WATER DIVINER :

“..the overstuffed story feels bombastic and contrived..”
by Claudia Puig [USA Today]

LITTLE BOY :

THE FORGER :

“..a movie where the colors blur sloppily..”
by Joe Neumaier [NY Daily News]

BROTHERLY LOVE :

“..despite the blazing guns, this script is not so tough..”

BLACKBIRD :

“..it's such a quiet, simple moment in a movie full of more overwrought ones - including a spiritual "deliverance" - but it makes a lasting impression. "Blackbird" would have benefited from using that approach more, rather than saddling a compelling drama..”
by Stephanie Merry [Washington Post]

“..the funny folks in actor Kevin Pollak's well-structured doc can actually break down what they do..”
