LATEST REVIEWS

Z FOR ZACHARIAH :

“..the dramatic tension considerably less, in a movie that feels stranded somewhere between serious artistic ambition and the dystopian franchise-building of "The Hunger Games," "Divergent," et al..”
by Scott Foundas [Variety]

WE ARE YOUR FRIENDS :

“..Joseph's debut proves to be a film with mood to spare but nothing much to say..”
by Nick Schager [The Playlist]

NO ESCAPE :

“..it's a disingenuous mess..”
by Nick Schager [The Playlist]

DIGGING FOR FIRE :

“..the movie steps lively with buoyant humor and palpable sexual tension, but keep an eye out for the dark places..”
by Peter Travers [Rolling Stone]

LEARNING TO DRIVE :

“..it has the intelligence to answer its own questions, about how a New Yorker could be so endlessly selfless. It just doesn't have the courage of its convictions, to delve a little deeper past the broad strokes of this frustratingly familiar.. story..”
by Tasha Robinson [A.V. Club]

QUEEN OF EARTH :

“..it's a cold picture and may be a little obscure for some audiences, but watching this thrilling new filmmaking step and an auteurial voice grow is exciting stuff to witness..”
by Rodrigo Perez [The Playlist]

THE CURSE OF DOWNERS GROVE :

“..a messy hash of teen soap opera, stalker thriller and whatnot whose titular, possibly supernatural aspect is basically irrelevant..”
by Dennis Harvey [Variety]

SEQUOIA :

“..sometimes feels like an unwanted distraction..”
by John DeFore [Hollywood Reporter]

BANG BANG BABY :

“..Rich Pell and David Wall have written a couple of memorable tunes and frankly, it's too bad there weren't a few more..”
by Linda Barnard [Toronto Star]

HOLDING THE MAN :

“..generally the pacing of the film is good, only lagging in moments, an impressive accomplishment in a story covering such a period of time..”
by Lauren Williams [Planet Arts Melbourne]
