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]

LATEST REVIEWS

THIS IS WHERE I LEAVE YOU :

“.."This Is Where I Leave You" leaves them all to their own devices. If they had a reunion free of this overwritten and clunkily directed movie, that would be worth going to..”
by Joe Neumaier [NY Daily News]

KEEP ON KEEPIN' ON :

“..intimate and affectionate..”
by Sheri Linden [LA Times]

FORT BLISS :

“..writer-director Claudia Myers presents us with an unflinching and complex character study of an imperfect woman juggling motherhood..”
by Martin Tsai [LA Times]

THE SCRIBBLER :

“..the script that Dan Schaffer adapted from his graphic novel can't seem to find a credible dimensionality for his story or characters..”
by Gary Goldstein [LA Times]

HECTOR AND THE SEARCH FOR HAPPINESS :

“..even with appearances by such dependable performers as Toni Collette, Stellan Skarsgard, Christopher Plummer and Jean Reno, the interminable "Hector and the Search for Happiness" will most likely inspire audiences to search for the exit door..”
by Lou Lumenick [New York Post]

DR. CABBIE :

“..it does so in a cheeky and charming way and, although Dr. Cabbie is clunky in places, it mostly works..”
by Bruce DeMara [Toronto Star]

TUSK :

“..it's watchable, fun, sick, sad and has to be seen to be believed..”
by Kevin C. Johnson [St. Louis Post-Dispatch]

RECLAIM :

“..a truly bonkers Z-grade thriller..”
by Drew Hunt [Slant Magazine]

THE RIOT CLUB :

“..brilliantly acted by a Brit pack of young actors..”
by Cath Clarke [Time Out London]

“.."The Maze Runner" tells a captivating tale of survival and weaves a potentially interesting mystery. Once its path become clear, however, you realize this is a puzzle you've worked out before..”
by Alonso Duralde [The Wrap]
