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]

THE LOFT :

“.."The Loft" is a stylish whodunit that struggles to stitch the label "Hitchcockian" right on the inner pocket..”
by Roger Moore [Movienation]

BLACK OR WHITE :

“..Black or White is an uncommonly brave film but it loses its gumption at the end..”
by James Berardinelli [ReelViews]

AMIRA & SAM :

“..nothing feels truly at stake, no matter how weighty the risks the characters face, but there are charming moments along the way..”
by Sheri Linden [LA Times]

SUBURBAN GOTHIC :

“..it's unsatisfying overall, trying too hard to look like it doesn't care..”
by Brian Orndorf [Blu-ray.com]

GIRLHOOD :

“..director Celine Sciamma explores a very different coming-of-age than in her 2011 film... with this vibrant portrait of a teenage girl..”
by Sara Stewart [New York Post]

WILD CARD :

“.."Wild Card" doesn't really hit the rock bottom that would make it more than a series of sulks and wallops..”
by Nicolas Rapold [NY Times]

SUPREMACY :

“..despite a vein-popping lead performance (and Ms. Olivieri‚Äôs touching take on the classic broken-down moll), "Supremacy" remains stubbornly uninvolving..”
by Jeannette Catsoulis [NY Times]

BACKSTREET BOYS: SHOW 'EM WHAT YOU'RE MADE OF :

“..a behind-the-scenes portrait that should please the band's diehard fans, but offers little of substance to the uninitiated..”
by Frank Scheck [Hollywood Reporter]

THE DEVIL'S VIOLINIST :

“..while its themes border on the sensationalistic, the film lacks the sizzle, humor and wild imagination that Ken Russell brought to his similar classical music-themed cinematic excursions..”
by Frank Scheck [Hollywood Reporter]

BEAUTIFUL & TWISTED :

“..a lurid yet compelling docudrama..”
by Hal Boedeker [Orlando Sentinel]
