“..Moreno was famous for verbal innovations and linguistic skill in his portrayal of the underdog, but the film doesn't capture the hilarity it seeks..”
by Claudia Puig [USA Today]

THE LAST OF ROBIN HOOD :

“..but in the end it's a fond, fairly toothless B-movie take on a romance that wasn't so much May-December as straight-up statutory..”
by Leah Greenblatt [Entertainment Weekly]

GHOSTBUSTERS :

“..deliriously inventive, evergreen 1984 family comedy..”
by Tom Huddleston [Time Out London]

AS ABOVE, SO BELOW :

“..boasts sporadically electrifying visuals but a frustratingly messy mythology..”

“..the puzzle at the centre of the tale just seems so outlandish and preposterous, it's difficult to take the film seriously..”
by Linda Barnard [Toronto Star]

LIFE OF CRIME :

“..nothing about Life of Crime is going to linger in memory, save the unassuming way Leonard devoted himself to character and story mechanics..”
by Joshua Rothkopf [Time Out New York]

THE DAMNED :

“..is The Damned scary? Yes, a bit..”
by Ernest Hardy [Village Voice]

LAST WEEKEND :

“..the most striking moments in Last Weekend are not the expected ones..”
by Serena Donadoni [Village Voice]

THE CONGRESS :
