4 of 5

“..with McAvoy acting as if his life depends on it, Filth is the Irvine Welsh film we've been waiting years for. Tastier than a deep-fried Mars Bar.....”
by James Mottram [Total Film]
3 of 4

“..unlike Jude Law's similarly offensive title character in Dom Hemingway, McAvoy is given a far better story to work from..”
by Linda Barnard [Toronto Star]
3 of 5

“..indeed, that aspect of this manic but often morbidly fun film is nothing to shake a stick at, either..”
by Joe Neumaier [New York Daily News]
“..Filth is still a hugely entertaining breath of foul air fuelled by McAvoy's impressively ugly star performance..”
by Stephen Dalton [Hollywood Reporter]
3 of 4

“..an explosive James McAvoy does a jumped-up version of Denis Leary's roguish "Rescue Me" character in "Filth," a cop caper that more than lives up to its name..”
by Kyle Smith [New York Post]

“..it is supremely intelligent and moving and Rampling and Courtenay are superb..”
by Peter Bradshaw [The Guardian]

A WALK IN THE WOODS :

by Todd McCarthy [Hollywood Reporter]

WAR ROOM :

“..are so heavy on broad pulpit pounding that it's challenging to get swept along by the story's message..”
by Tom Russo [Boston Globe]

ZIPPER :

“..on all counts, "Zipper" comes up short..”
by Katharine Pushkar [NY Daily News]

7 CHINESE BROTHERS :

“..feels like an homage to the early work of Wes Anderson with its plinky soundtrack, solipsistic banter and emphasis on uniforms..”
by Sara Stewart [New York Post]

TURBO KID :

“..it feels like amateur hour, but for fans of low-rent thrills it's kind of fun..”
by Soren Andersen [Seattle Times]

WHEN ANIMALS DREAM :

“..rich with tone but otherwise lacking bite..”
by Jordan Hoffman [NY Daily News]

POD :

“..a highly effective tale of terror that does a nice job of setting an unsettling tone from the onset and very rarely lets up until the film's conclusion..”
by Heather Wixson [Dailydead]

#LUCKY NUMBER :

“..obviously "#Lucky Number" will not appeal to everyone but for those that do find it entertaining, they will not be disappointed..”
by James McDonald [Irish Film Critic]

Z FOR ZACHARIAH :

“..the dramatic tension considerably less, in a movie that feels stranded somewhere between serious artistic ambition and the dystopian franchise-building of "The Hunger Games," "Divergent," et al..”
by Scott Foundas [Variety]
