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

HOME :

“..Home doesn't stand out as fresh or particularly funny. There are stretches that feel flat..”
by Linda Barnard [Toronto Star]

GET HARD :

“..Hart and Ferrell may not be Pryor and Wilder, but they score several laughs in this slim comedy..”
by Rafer Guzman [Newsday]

ELECTRIC SLIDE :

“..lazy and contrived retread can ever hope to be..”
by Rodrigo Perez [The Playlist]

NED RIFLE :

“..Ned Rifle is top notch quirk and really exciting to watch..”
by Mike Shutt [Rope of Silicon]

SERENA :

“..while the story falls a bit into melodrama, that can't chop away at the solid drama the stars and director build beautifully..”
by Joe Neumaier [NY Daily News]

WHILE WE'RE YOUNG :

“..in While We're Young, writer-director Noah Baumbach gets hold of a good satirical premise and does halfway well by it, maybe even two-thirds..”
by David Edelstein [Vulture]

NIGHTLIGHT :

“..it's all very familiar in that Blair Witch kind of way, with neither the characters nor situations proving remotely interesting..”
by Frank Scheck [Hollywood Reporter]

WHITE GOD :

“..the way director Kornel Mundruczo got Body and Luke to run the gamut of emotions from face-licking adorableness to teeth-baring killers baying for blood is genuinely impressive..”
by Cath Clarke [Time Out London]

APARTMENT TROUBLES :

“..a nearly laughless comedy that doesn't do its writer/director/stars any favors..”
by Roger Moore [Movienation]

DEAD RISING: WATCHTOWER :

“..has some recognizable stars, but they are trapped in a slim story padded with lots and lots of flesh-eating..”
by Neil Genzlinger [NY Times]
