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]
