LATEST REVIEWS

WETLANDS :

“..Juri's performance makes it impossible to divert your eyes from the screen, no matter how much you might want to, and a brave film that eventually succumbs to convention is still braver than most..”
by David Ehrlich [Film.com]

GOD HELP THE GIRL :

“..the cutesiness will entice/repel viewers in equal measure, but it has a lot of heart, and displays it on its sleeve..”
by Emma Johnston [Total Film]

FRONTERA :

“..Frontera is, on a whole, more interested in situations than characters-Pena, a stoic onscreen presence..”
by Andrew Lapin [The Dissolve]

THE LONGEST WEEK :

“.."The Longest Week" quickly becomes mimicry, losing any emotional pull as it strives to preserve the hospital corners of other, better helmers..”
by Brian Orndorf [Blu-ray.com]

HEAVENLY SWORD :

“..a pretty predictable and unexciting video..”
by Jeffrey Kauffman [Blu-ray.com]

CANTINFLAS :

“..Moreno was famous for verbal innovations and linguistic skill in his portrayal of the underdog, but the film doesn't capture the hilarity it seeks..”
by Claudia Puig [USA Today]

THE LAST OF ROBIN HOOD :

“..but in the end it's a fond, fairly toothless B-movie take on a romance that wasn't so much May-December as straight-up statutory..”
by Leah Greenblatt [Entertainment Weekly]

GHOSTBUSTERS :

“..deliriously inventive, evergreen 1984 family comedy..”
by Tom Huddleston [Time Out London]

AS ABOVE, SO BELOW :

“..boasts sporadically electrifying visuals but a frustratingly messy mythology..”
by Matt Risley [Total Film]

THE CALLING :

“..the puzzle at the centre of the tale just seems so outlandish and preposterous, it's difficult to take the film seriously..”
by Linda Barnard [Toronto Star]
