LATEST REVIEWS

THE QUIET ONES :

“..the arrestingly fierce Cooke, in particular, is surely a star in the making..”
by Mike McCahill [The Guardian]

THE OTHER WOMAN :

“..an ungainly, often flat-footed yet weirdly compelling romantic dramedy..”
by Justin Chang [Variety]

LOCKE :

“..even with nothing to cut away to and no flashbacks to offer context, the film manages to stay as tight as a vise..”
by Chris Nashawaty [Entertainment Weekly]

BRICK MANSIONS :

“..it is, however, kind of fun, and in this case, maybe that's enough..”
by Jason Gorber [TwitchFilm]

YOUNG & BEAUTIFUL :

“..a fascinating contemplation of adolescent sexuality that will be a star-making platform for its young lead, Marine Vacth..”
by David Rooney [Hollywood Reporter]

COTTAGE COUNTRY :

“..the movie had potential but just didn't live up to it..”
by Ryan Lueders [Reel Ryan]

2 STATES :

“..2 States' romantic angle is a little difficult to connect given the way it is moved along in such a hurry in order to incorporate everything, but the family side of the bargain is truly touching..”
by Paloma Sharma [rediff.com]

INTRAMURAL :

“..the film has got a stacked cast of comedic talent, it unknowingly and amusingly nods to and borrows from more traditional sports films, isn't afraid to get damn weird in service to a good joke..”
by Kate Erbland [Film School Rejects]

A DAY LATE AND A DOLLAR SHORT :

“..happily, fine acting by Anika Noni Rose, Kimberly Elise, Tichina Arnold and Mekhi Phifer, along with Goldberg and Rhames, makes it a cautionary tale worth watching..”
by David Hinckley [NY Daily News]

BEARS :

“..another typically engaging, vividly shot entry in the successful Disney wildlife series..”
by Michael Rechtshaffen [Hollywood Reporter]
