“..will entrance and delight fans of Terence Davies..”
by Mark Adams [Screen Daily]
“..the story, told in associative patterns rather than chronological order, is a fairly ordinary, even banal, love triangle..”
by A.O. Scott [New York Times]
“..the promising combination of his contemporary ability to mix memory and narrative with Rattigan's straight-ahead drama is as richly satisfying as it sounds..”
by Kenneth Turan [Los Angeles Times]

LATEST REVIEWS

UNFINISHED BUSINESS :

“..a jumble of half-baked ideas, none particularly interesting..”
by Bill Goodykoontz [Arizona Republic]

CHAPPIE :

“..Blomkamp's ideas feel depleted this time, dulled by repetition and other cinematic droids that stretch from HAL 9000 in 2001: A Space Odyssey to Ultron in the upcoming sequel to The Avengers..”
by Peter Travers [Rolling Stone]

FAULTS :

“..Winstead is one of the most intuitive actors of her generation, and though her impressive range is easy to spot, it's her elasticity that makes her so rewarding to watch..”
by David Ehrlich [Time Out New York]

KIDNAPPING MR. HEINEKEN :

“..Sam Worthington and Jim Sturgess are solid as two of the four kidnappers, but Swedish director Daniel Alfredson pushes the caper button too many times..”
by Joe Neumaier [NY Daily News]

OCTOBER GALE :

“..the material is not exceptional, but Ms. Clarkson always is. She's that rare actress over 50 who seems to land a lot of the juicy roles her younger competitors covet..”
by Rex Reed [New York Observer]

TO WRITE LOVE ON HER ARMS :

“..yet there is a touching sincerity to the entire enterprise, its lumpiness coming from a desire not to make things up, and if you can put away your cynicism, which I clearly am struggling with, the acting might win you over too..”
by Steve Morrissey [MovieSteve]

THE INTRUDERS :

“..this is one of those movies that's not very good but not so offensively bad that I regret ever seeing it. No doubt, it's also something I probably won't remember in a week..”
by Brian Oliver [The Movieman]

FOCUS :

“..like a counterfeit handbag: It looks great but falls apart when you reach into it..”
by Rafer Guzman [Newsday]

A LA MALA :

“..thoroughly predictable, and despite an original setup, the movie never rouses the emotions..”
by Marjorie Baumgarten [Austin Chronicle]

THE HUNTING GROUND :

“..the stories are horrifying, but essential to hear..”
by Joe Neumaier [NY Daily News]
