3 of 4

“..worst-case scenarios for our forays into chat rooms and social network sites are laid bare, as are the illegal and immoral contours of the digital landscape in this well-acted dramatic thriller..”
by Claudia Puig [USA Today]
2.5 of 4

“..working with a script by Andrew Stern, is good with the details, and he gets strong performances from his cast in this, his debut feature..”
by Steven Rea [Philadelphia Inquirer]
“..this ambitious, multi-storied, state-of-us-all ensemble drama plumbs our fears of the plugged-in now more stridently than local news in TV sweeps..”
by Alan Scherstuhl [Village Voice]
2.5 of 5

“..the first narrative feature from Henry-Alex Rubin (who directed the Oscar-nominated doc "Murderball") is to smartphones what "Crash" is to racism. Call it "Send."..”
by Amy Nicholson [Los Angeles Times]
5 of 5

“..the film ominously conveys a world of too much information but too little communication, where people have become slaves to glowing hand-held devices that were designed to make life easier but have made it busier and more complicated..”
by Stephen Holden [New York Times]
3 of 4

“..Rubin has crafted a human drama that vibrates with ferocity and feeling. Like Traffic, Crash and Babel before it, Disconnect tells several interlocking stores..”
by Peter Travers [Rolling Stone]
2 of 5

“..one in which the loosely interwoven stories, regrettably, never add up to the sum of their parts..”
by David Fear [Time Out New York]
“..but "Disconnect" is best at depicting what it doesn't try to dramatize, or even name..”
by Joe Morgenstern [Wall Street Journal]
3 of 4

“..after so many idiot comedies, it's especially good to see Jason Bateman in a serious dramatic role as an anguished father..”
by Rex Reed [New York Observer]
3.5 of 10

“.."Disconnect" isn't quite as bad as those, but it sure as heck ain't good..”
by Jordan Hoffman [Film.com]

LATEST REVIEWS

GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY :

“..colourful, tongue-in-cheek fun, purpose-built for grown-up lovers of kitsch '80s science-fiction. But the Marvel formula is starting to feel, well, a little too formulaic..”
by Dan Jolin [Empire Magazine]

THE FLUFFY MOVIE :

“..the personal material shines brightest in this consistently amusing if not hilarious stand-up comedy film..”
by Frank Scheck [Hollywood Reporter]

KICK :

“..is non-stop entertainment and Salman Khan at his best..”
by Sarita Tanwar [dna India]

HERCULES :

“..a picture that is easy to indulge in, and enjoy..”
by Stefan Pape [HeyUGuys]

A MOST WANTED MAN :

“..it's not a kind way for a memorable artist to say goodbye, but there's one thing you have to admit about Mr. Hoffman-he may have been many things, but boring was not one of them..”
by Rex Reed [New York Observer]

VERY GOOD GIRLS :

“..Very Good Girls is a film one wants to like but can't. It just doesn't work..”
by Chuck Wilson [Village Voice]

AND SO IT GOES :

“..for all of its 93 minutes, you never feel anything significant is at stake for anyone..”
by Scott Foundas [Variety]

MY MAN IS A LOSER :

“..that type of movie hottie who hangs with the guys, becomes a love interest for the secretly lonely bachelor..”
by Sara Stewart [New York Post]

COME BACK TO ME :

“..the film's clumsy script elicits groans, but it's the plot that infuriates..”
by Rob Staeger [Village Voice]

LUCY :

“.."Lucy" isn't really much of a thriller - it's virtually an anti-thriller, devoid of suspense or any real sense of danger due to the fact that its heroine is more or less invincible..”
by Justin Chang [Variety]
