“..the film is shot attractively enough, even if the production design makes us wonder if the film is set in the '70s, the '80s or today..”

LATEST REVIEWS

TWO DAYS, ONE NIGHT :

“..it's a rare film of unforced simplicity that will stick with you for a long time. And it's honest right to its perfectly judged ending..”
by Kim Newman [Empire Online]

THE GAMBLER :

“..a slick remake of the gritty original is marked by sharp performances..”
by Todd McCarthy [Hollywood Reporter]

MR. TURNER :

“..an ecstatically beautiful and exquisitely detailed portrait of the artist as a cantankerous middle-aged man..”
by Scott Foundas [Variety]

SONG OF THE SEA :

“..a gorgeously rendered animated feature from Ireland..”
by Boyd van Hoeij [Hollywood Reporter]

ANNIE :

“..more of a facelift than an update, the pic dusts off some old songs, adds a few desultory stabs at new ones, and stuffs the frame with shiny upscale gadgets that scream "modern"..”
by Ronnie Scheib [Variety]

THE SANTA CON :

“..this movie was mostly about crime and lies and betrayal and sticking your nose into other people's business..”
by Jill O'Rourke [Crushable]

THE CHRISTMAS PARADE :

“..the movie takes the standard "girl has wrong boy, girl gets right boy" story and simply fills in the blanks..”
by Tom Conroy [Media Life Magazine]

NICK OFFERMAN: AMERICAN HAM :

“..a solid comedy special--with stylish prerecorded title sequences for each new Tip--but it lacks some of the inventiveness or surprise..”
by Kyle Burton [indieWIRE]

AFTER THE FALL :

“.."After the Fall" belongs to a type of movie that is too lazy to connect the dots and fill in the blanks between its supposedly teachable moments..”
by Stephen Holden [NY Times]

THE COLOR OF TIME :

“..for all the experimentalism of its conception, falls some way short here, and ends up an irreproachably tasteful, easily digestible but an unsurprising, undemanding watch..”
by Jessica Kiang [The Playlist]
