REVIEWS RATE:  Critics  Not quite bad, but it's not recommended either.    Readers  Be the 1st!

“..often seems as if it were assembled using the cut-up technique favored by Burroughs and his beat contemporaries, in which cliches are thrown together and arbitrarily rearranged..”
by Calum Marsh [Village Voice]
2 of 4

“..moviegoers be warned: With the skyrocketing cost of movie tickets (not to mention popcorn), this one is a bad investment..”
by Rex Reed [New York Observer]
“..fine performances are not enough to compensate for the familiar elements of this heavy-handed portrait of suburban moral rot..”
by Frank Scheck [Hollywood Reporter]
2 of 5

“..every time Jay Lifton's self-consciously quirky music kicks in, it undermines everything else. It sounds more like Lifton is making fun of indie comedies rather than participating in one..”
by Jamie S. Rich [Oregonian]
1.5 of 4

“.."Chlorine" isn't pared-down enough for real ruthlessness, and it settles for sour instead..”
by Farran Smith Nehme [New York Post]

BEARS :

“..another typically engaging, vividly shot entry in the successful Disney wildlife series..”
by Michael Rechtshaffen [Hollywood Reporter]

A PROMISE :

“..awkward, passionless drama conveys neither the sensuality nor the drawn-out sense of longing required..”
by Justin Chang [Variety]

FADING GIGOLO :

“..this second film is the keeper: the kind of keenly observed cultural clash that still finds room for dancing, a sultry fish-deboning (you just have to see it) and awakening..”
by Joshua Rothkopf [Time Out New York]

A HAUNTED HOUSE 2 :

“..the script is lazy, recycling countless genre cliches rather than inventing novel twists..”
by Colin Covert [Minneapolis Star Tribune]

TIME IS ILLMATIC :

“..the documentary offers a number of reasons to appreciate its ongoing legacy, with sufficient production values to hold the tribute together..”
by Eric Kohn [indieWIRE]

HEAVEN IS FOR REAL :

“..a supposedly true story that uses faulty logic to reduce the complexity of faith to a fairy-tale. By rights, it should displease atheists and believers alike..”
by Rafer Guzman [Newsday]

ANTBOY :

“.."Antboy" is peppered with fun, cleverly shot and edited action bits as well as apropos comic-book style visuals..”
by Gary Goldstein [LA Times]

13 SINS :

“..a creepy little diversion that ultimately unravels long before its hero's fragile psyche does..”
by Justin Chang [Variety]

SMALL TIME :

“..when a film about relationships features sentiments expressed as neatly and simplistically as that, the storytelling feels mechanical and contrived..”
by Zachary Wigon [Village Voice]

AUTHORS ANONYMOUS :

“..the film needs to be reminded of the same..”
by Calum Marsh [Village Voice]
