RAGE :

“..but this one is funless and lackluster, a grinding mess of pulp cliches with dull characters, perfunctory violence and dim plotting..”

ROAD TO PALOMA :

“..this film is numbingly dull, an outlaw-on-the-run saga as laconic and slow-moving as its fierce, hirsute protagonist..”
by Sam Weisberg [Village Voice]

by Ben Kenigsberg [AV Club]

BOYHOOD :

“..Boyhood is a masterpiece..”
by Simon Reynolds [Digital Spy]

by Justin Chang [Variety]
