“..there isn't a dull moment in "Borgman," and while there are social implications it is, at a basic level, a horror film..”
by Jordan Hoffman [Film.com]
“..the story's magic is black, its perfidy driven by evil spirits..”
by Stephen Holden [New York Times]

“..the Netherlands' "Borgman" is a rarity: a genuinely shocking, upsetting movie..”
by Kyle Smith [New York Post]
3 of 5

“..it's a loopy, lopsided experiment..”
by Dave Calhoun [Time Out]
“..firm hold on the material that he practically hypnotizes you into following along to the end. The craftsmanship is precise; the result is enigmatic..”
by Stephanie Zacharek [Village Voice]
3.5 of 4

“..a film that will frustrate and fascinate in equal measure, but is no doubt worth your time..”
by Erik McClanahan [Minneapolis Star Tribune]

THE TRANSPORTER REFUELED :

“..a film that's as good as its predecessors, and suggests that Refueled isn't the last that weâ��ll see of this particular incarnation of the Transporter..”
by Chris Tilly [IGN Movies]

EVEREST :

“..in narrative terms it's messy - as true stories tend to be. The dramatic focus is split between around half a dozen characters based on real people and it's not clear who we should root for..”
by Peter Bradshaw [The Guardian]

BEASTS OF NO NATION :

“..artful, accomplished but not entirely sustained adaptation..”
by Justin Chang [Variety]

45 YEARS :

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

A WALK IN THE WOODS :

“..A Walk in the Woods is a jolly good time, sparking dozens of chuckles and a few strong laughs. Nothing special cinematically, it still provides a welcome showcase for wonderful star..”
by Todd McCarthy [Hollywood Reporter]

WAR ROOM :

“..are so heavy on broad pulpit pounding that it's challenging to get swept along by the story's message..”
by Tom Russo [Boston Globe]

ZIPPER :

“..on all counts, "Zipper" comes up short..”
by Katharine Pushkar [NY Daily News]

7 CHINESE BROTHERS :

“..feels like an homage to the early work of Wes Anderson with its plinky soundtrack, solipsistic banter and emphasis on uniforms..”
by Sara Stewart [New York Post]

TURBO KID :

“..it feels like amateur hour, but for fans of low-rent thrills it's kind of fun..”
by Soren Andersen [Seattle Times]

WHEN ANIMALS DREAM :

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