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

4 of 5

“..there's also plenty of blood-letting, standoffs, shootouts and wordless mini-meditations on men and criminality..”
by Joe Neumaier [New York Daily News]
3 of 4

“..the minimal dialogue does lead to a few too many fussy/busy "actorly" moments. But they have collaborated on a car picture that unnerves us with its idling quiet, and then pins our ears back when they stomp the accelerator..”
by Roger Moore [Orlando Sentinel]
“..the film seems to have almost sprung into life as a coiled, confident and closed-off man..”
by Claudia Puig [USA Today]
“..plans go awry, and the driver is on the run, using his skills, wits and a horror movie villain's relentless force to achieve his goals..”
by Peter Hartlaub [San Francisco Chronicle]
4 of 5

“..it's such a smooth, good-looking ride that you'll put up with the annoyances..”
by Randy Cordova [Arizona Republic]
“..it's opens with what might be its most successful, least violent set piece, a getaway from a robbery choreographed to quietly insistent techno music..”
by Kenneth Turan [LA Times]
Review rate : B+

“..it's a visually and aurally edgy Euro-influenced American genre movie about the coolness of noir-influenced American genre movies about the coolness of driving - especially in L.A...”
by Lisa Schwarzbaum [Entertainment Weekly]
“..it's a fun, if not exhilarating, ride, one sped along with the help of a wonderfully assembled cast..”
by Todd McCarthy [Hollywood Reporter]
3.5 of 4

“..it shows that movies can generate a testosterone-and-adrenaline cocktail without requiring viewers to undergo a frontal lobotomy to appreciate the result..”
by James Berardinelli [ReelViews]
“..is a sleek, tense piece of work that, as a vehicle for Ryan Gosling, has a kind of daredevil control, swerving dangerously close to and abruptly away from self-parody..”
by J. Hoberman [Village Voice]

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]

AFTER THE BALL :

“.."After the Ball" is a winning if predictable fable..”
by Tom Keogh [Seattle Times]

BROTHERLY LOVE :

“..despite the blazing guns, this script is not so tough..”
by Farran Smith Nehme [New York Post]

BLACKBIRD :

“..it's such a quiet, simple moment in a movie full of more overwrought ones - including a spiritual "deliverance" - but it makes a lasting impression. "Blackbird" would have benefited from using that approach more, rather than saddling a compelling drama..”
by Stephanie Merry [Washington Post]

SEE YOU IN VALHALLA :

“..is as deadly as its funereal subject matter..”
by Michael O'Sullivan [Washington Post]

ADULT BEGINNERS :

“..it's all very low stakes. We know how this is going to turn out. But it is a pleasure watching Kroll and Byrne to the end..”
by Molly Eichel [Philadelphia Inquirer]

JUST BEFORE I GO :

“..Courteney Cox's misbegotten project is a comedy-drama that, to Cox's credit, doesn't feel at all like a TV sitcom..”
by Joe Neumaier [NY Daily News]

MISERY LOVES COMEDY :

“..the funny folks in actor Kevin Pollak's well-structured doc can actually break down what they do..”
by Joe Neumaier [NY Daily News]
