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]

#LUCKY NUMBER :

“..obviously "#Lucky Number" will not appeal to everyone but for those that do find it entertaining, they will not be disappointed..”
by James McDonald [Irish Film Critic]

Z FOR ZACHARIAH :

“..the dramatic tension considerably less, in a movie that feels stranded somewhere between serious artistic ambition and the dystopian franchise-building of "The Hunger Games," "Divergent," et al..”
by Scott Foundas [Variety]
