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..”
