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]
1 of 4

“..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]
3 of 5

“..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]

LATEST REVIEWS

RIDE :

“..Hunt, who also wrote and directed, didn't take her own advice. There's not a surprise in this entire movie..”
by Katharine Pushkar [NY Daily News]

CAS & DYLAN :

“..Priestley shows a steady eye for detail in his first time as director, although he lets the film stray too much into TV territory..”
by Linda Barnard [Toronto Star]

ANY DAY :

“..built on a number of ludicrous contrivances, Any Day eventually pushes its disparate pieces together into a misguided and oddly unsettling storyline..”
by Kate Erbland [The Dissolve]

HYENA :

“..there's something interesting in the way he [Gerard Johnson] deliberately denies his characters and the viewers any reprieve..”
by Martin Tsai [LA Times]

WELCOME TO ME :

“..a dark comedy that succeeds on its own itchy terms..”
by John DeFore [Hollywood Reporter]

FAR FROM THE MADDING CROWD :

“..works on all levels. Foremost, it is brilliantly directed by Thomas Vinterberg..”
by Claudia Puig [USA Today]

CLEVELAND ABDUCTION :

“..involving violence, sexual assault, torture, and, above all, captivity, abduction stories are a catch-all for the women-in-peril narrative that is the core theme of so many Lifetime movies..”
by Molly Eichel [A.V. Club]

THE WATER DIVINER :

“..the overstuffed story feels bombastic and contrived..”
by Claudia Puig [USA Today]

LITTLE BOY :

“..though occasionally sticky sweet and not always subtle, it's also a smart and very moving story..”
by Rafer Guzman [Newsday]

THE FORGER :

“..a movie where the colors blur sloppily..”
by Joe Neumaier [NY Daily News]
