2 of 4

“..he can act, and there's a possibility he can also direct, but there's no evidence in Don Jon that he can do both at the same time..”
by Rex Reed [New York Observer]
Review rate : B+

“..Gordon-Levitt's intuitive performance makes even this part of the film work..”
by Owen Gleiberman [Entertainment Weekly]
3 of 4

“..arguably the most fascinating aspect of Don Jon is the way it equates porn, and how it can warp the frequent viewer into developing fetishistic and shallow conceptions about women and sex, with other forms of entertainment..”
by James Berardinelli [ReelViews]
3 of 4

“.."Don Jon" is hardly as slick as its main character fancies himself, and that's OK. After all, as Gordon-Levitt's movie takes great pains to illustrate, what we constitute as perfection often proves to be a deceptive illusion..”
by Randy Myers [San Jose Mercury News]

CRONIES :

“..Cronies is funny and moving in equal doses, a humane film about a handful of guys just trying to get by on the hands they've been dealt by life..”
by Dominick Mayer [Consequence of Sound]

WITH THIS RING :

TEN THOUSAND SAINTS :

by Chris Bumbray [Joblo]

JAMES WHITE :

“..thanks to a strong visual eye and a terrific cast, this anguished, but intimate coming of age tale tends to (mostly) recompense for some of the darker and more despondent elements that will test some resolves..”
by Rodrigo Perez [The Playlist]

THE BRONZE :

“..simply by not getting the balance right, "The Bronze" seems to be lucky to have medaled at all..”
by Drew McWeeny [HitFix]

A LITTLE GAME :

“..a serviceable family film that is hardly a worthy rival for "Searching for Bobby Fischer"..”
by Ben Kenigsberg [NY Times]
