“..While the visuals and T Bone Burnett's score resonate, this narrative riff on alienation and identity disappoints...”
by Sheri Linden [Boxoffice Magazine]

“..There are no characters to connect with and no story to anchor an emotional response to..”
by [E! Online]
“..strikes some resonant chords but also hits notes that simply don't ring true and are borderline risible at times..”
by Todd McCarthy [Variety]
“..meanders through predictable and emotionally undemanding territory..”
by Michael Atkinson [Village Voice]

LATEST REVIEWS

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]

MORTDECAI :

“..though the books are brilliant, Depp's attempt to make his own Terry-Thomas movie feels tired and more than a little tortured..”
by Ali Plumb [Empire Online]

THE BOY NEXT DOOR :

“..it's not much fun at all, but at least it's over..”
by Moira MacDonald [Seattle Times]

STRANGE MAGIC :

“..the new animated musical fairy tale from the mind and the mixtape of George Lucas, is indeed strange. What's missing is the magic..”
by Betsy Sharkey [LA Times]

CAKE :

“..Patrick Tobin's infuriatingly coy script... turning the film into a morbid guessing game..”
by Joshua Rothkopf [Time Out New York]

MOMMY :

“..the same elements that have endeared or alienated viewers of Dolan's previous films are all here in Mommy..”
by Liam Lacey [Globe and Mail]

BLACK SEA :

“..Scoot McNairy is a terrifically spineless, whining mouthpiece for the adventurer who financed the journey, and Ben Mendelsohn is a terrifying underwater psycho. The whole thing adds up to a watery grave of claustrophobia-but that can be pretty terrifying..”
by Rex Reed [New York Observer]

SONG ONE :

“..Song One has its heart in the right place (on its sleeve)-it's just in desperate need of a few strong hooks..”
by David Ehrlich [Time Out New York]
