REVIEWS RATE:  Critics  Go! Watch this movie. You'll regret if not seeing it.    Readers  5 of 5 [Rate It]

“..you might go away from this one blighted, blasted and messed up. Who could ask for anything more?..”
by Rex Reed [New York Observer]
Review rate : B+

“..there's plenty of violence in this film..”
by Jordan Hoffman [Film.com]
“..the love story that could be at the movie's center gets the most perfunctory treatment..”
by Richard Corliss [TIME Magazine]
4 of 5

“..the film does stumble in its final showdown, failing to find closure beyond its most basic motives..”
by Joe Neumaier [New York Daily News]
Review rate : B-

“..the film achieves that QT hypnotic mood. But only for a while. In the gaudy-bloody last 30 minutes (think over-the-top and beyond), the mood vanishes..”
by Owen Gleiberman [Entertainment Weekly]
“..Tarantino injects the weighty material with so many jocular, startling and unexpected touches that it's constantly stimulating..”
by Todd McCarthy [Hollywood Reporter]
“..seriously entertaining and seriously thoughtful..”
by Scott Foundas [Village Voice]
3 of 4

“..plenty of big movie moments and several instances of loopy brilliance, but it's also a rehash of "Inglourious Basterds" with slavery substituting for Nazism..”
by Kyle Smith [New York Post]
“..nor are there as many good oddball characters..”
by J. R. Jones [Chicago Reader]
3.5 of 4

“..it twists and turns over an unbridled two hours and 45 minutes, giving history (and your stamina) a serious pounding..”
by Peter Travers [Rolling Stone]
2.5 of 4

“..he connective tissue is less convincing, and at two hours and 45 minutes, the film feels ponderous, and the sporadic bratty humour is not enough to leaven the mix..”
by Liam Lacey [Globe and Mail]
“..gorgeously lit and lensed by Robert Richardson against authentic American landscapes..”
by Peter Debruge [Variety]

LATEST REVIEWS

RIDE :

“..Hunt, who also wrote and directed, didn't take her own advice. There's not a surprise in this entire movie..”
by Katharine Pushkar [NY Daily News]

CAS & DYLAN :

“..Priestley shows a steady eye for detail in his first time as director, although he lets the film stray too much into TV territory..”
by Linda Barnard [Toronto Star]

ANY DAY :

“..built on a number of ludicrous contrivances, Any Day eventually pushes its disparate pieces together into a misguided and oddly unsettling storyline..”
by Kate Erbland [The Dissolve]

HYENA :

“..there's something interesting in the way he [Gerard Johnson] deliberately denies his characters and the viewers any reprieve..”
by Martin Tsai [LA Times]

WELCOME TO ME :

“..a dark comedy that succeeds on its own itchy terms..”
by John DeFore [Hollywood Reporter]

FAR FROM THE MADDING CROWD :

“..works on all levels. Foremost, it is brilliantly directed by Thomas Vinterberg..”
by Claudia Puig [USA Today]

CLEVELAND ABDUCTION :

“..involving violence, sexual assault, torture, and, above all, captivity, abduction stories are a catch-all for the women-in-peril narrative that is the core theme of so many Lifetime movies..”
by Molly Eichel [A.V. Club]

THE WATER DIVINER :

“..the overstuffed story feels bombastic and contrived..”
by Claudia Puig [USA Today]

LITTLE BOY :

“..though occasionally sticky sweet and not always subtle, it's also a smart and very moving story..”
by Rafer Guzman [Newsday]

THE FORGER :

“..a movie where the colors blur sloppily..”
by Joe Neumaier [NY Daily News]
