REVIEWS RATE:  Critics  Nothing's perfect, but it's worth seeing.    Readers  4 of 5 [Rate It]

“..the sky's not the limit in this well made but dramatically diffuse art house blockbuster..”
by Jordan Mintzer [Hollywood Reporter]

“..it isn't as complicated as it thinks..”
by Kyle Smith [New York Post]
2 of 4

“..is pop spiritualism, comic-book grandiosity, Zen for dummies. I can't say I didn't enjoy it on some level, but it's not the level of universal wisdom the Wachowskis and Tykwer would have us be on..”
by Steven Rea [Philadelphia Inquirer]
3 of 4

“..is consistently challenging, frequently entertaining and occasionally maddening..”
by Peter Howell [Toronto Star]
2.5 of 4

“..is a movie about everything, but that's the same as a movie about nothing..”
by Rafer Guzman [Newsday]

“..Cloud Atlas left me feeling disconnected..”
by Peter Travers [Rolling Stone]

“..Cloud Atlas is going to be far and away the most divisive film of 2012, but I don't think it's possible to fault it for shortage of chutzpah..”
by Tim Robey [Daily Telegraph]
2 of 5

“..at 163 minutes Cloud Atlas carries all the marks of a giant folly, and those unfamiliar with the book will be baffled. Yet it's hard to wholly condemn the directors' ambition - this is fast-paced and cleverly assembled, with the best of the performances..”
by Henry Barnes [The Guardian]
2.5 of 4

“..a consistently tangled experience - captivating and frustrating, occasionally enjoyable to piece together, and sometimes a slog..”
by Claudia Puig [USA Today]

CHRISTIAN MINGLE :

“..a sweet romantic comedy that is faith friendly..”
by Donna Rolfe [The Dove Foundation]

MALL :

“.."Mall" is definitely worth a look..”
by Billy Tatum [AXS]

DARK WAS THE NIGHT :

“.."Dark Was the Night" doesn't break the monster movie mold, but does fill it to capacity with eerie atmosphere and creeping chills elevated by terrific acting..”
by Ian Sedensky [Culture Crypt]

BIG DRIVER :

“..if you do enjoy the once in a while thriller, and like to see a story that pushes you to think, then Big Driver is for you..”
by Nathan M Rose [FlickDirect]

SUMMER OF BLOOD :

“..Summer of Blood tries very hard to be cool, but instead comes off as strained and aloof, with a number of satiric targets it could have aimed for but just bypasses altogether..”
by Drew Taylor [The Playlist]

THE CULTURE HIGH :

“..an amateurish hand is in the term-paper-like voice-over narration and the inclusion of underqualified talking heads..”
by Martin Tsai [LA Times]

RUDDERLESS :

“.."Rudderless" is a competent, well-acted melodrama, yet in scope and ambition it has the modest and serviceable scale of the small, not silver, screen..”
by Michael O'Sullivan [Washington Post]

YOUNG ONES :

“..unfortunately this film is equally dusty, with a mishmash of ideas and self-conscious execution..”
by Joe Neumaier [NY Daily News]

BIRDMAN :

“..Keaton's terrific, off-kilter performance is just one of several in this dizzying, high-energy movie. A must-see..”
by Rafer Guzman [Newsday]

HOUSEBOUND :

“..creepy, silly, inventive, darkly funny and, at one point, mind-blowingly bloody..”
by Gary Goldstein [LA Times]
