1 of 4

“..the visuals are sharp and the 3-D above average..”
by Peter Hartlaub [San Francisco Chronicle]
2 of 5

“..the empty imagery of the Cirque shows often seems exciting in the moment, but lacks deeper meaning..”
by Mark Olsen [Los Angeles Times]
“..the characters played by Seth Rogen and Paul Rudd take in a performance of "Mystere" under the influence of hallucinogenic mushrooms..”
by A.O. Scott [New York Times]
2 of 4

“..the camerawork feels natural and unforced, one of the primary achievements of the enjoyable if not essential Worlds Away..”
by Howard Cohen [Miami Herald]
“..the brow-furrowing is understandable, though, as, like most abstractedly mystical Cirque stage shows, the action follows the logic of a dream..”
by Megan Lehmann [Hollywood Reporter]
“..the best ones here are the simplest, during which the eye can follow each body's flouting of the rules of gravity and bone structure..”
by Alan Scherstuhl [Village Voice]
0.5 of 4

“..most mangled of all are the segments from "The Beatles LOVE,"..”
by Rafer Guzman [Newsday]
2.5 of 4

“..it fails to fully convey the thrill of running off to join the circus, for real..”
by Loren King [Boston Globe]
2.5 of 4

“..despite its appeal, the movie lacks a judicious film editor, one who doesn't cut in the middle of the breathtaking, death-defying aerial moves by the Cirque performers..”
by Carrie Rickey [Philadelphia Inquirer]
“..as befits a film designed to attract a more family-oriented audience than that for Cirque's steamier stage work..”
by Rob Nelson [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]

POD :

“..a highly effective tale of terror that does a nice job of setting an unsettling tone from the onset and very rarely lets up until the film's conclusion..”
by Heather Wixson [Dailydead]

#LUCKY NUMBER :

“..obviously "#Lucky Number" will not appeal to everyone but for those that do find it entertaining, they will not be disappointed..”
by James McDonald [Irish Film Critic]

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]
