REVIEWS RATE:  Critics  Nothing's perfect, but it's worth seeing.    Readers  5 of 5 [Rate It]

3 of 4

“..this "Gatsby" has all the potential for being a train wreck that could make that anemic 1974 version with Robert Redford seem better than it was..”
by Randy Myers [San Jose Mercury News]
3 of 4

“..the most entertaining "Gatsby" yet..”
by Rafer Guzman [Newsday]
1 of 4

“..the actors are buried in the art direction, along with feeling. The film looks as stiff and lifeless as a posh store window..”
by Peter Travers [Rolling Stone]
3.5 of 4

“..surprisingly satisfying (and text-faithful) as a dramatization of F. Scott's Fitzgerald's classic novel..”
by Lou Lumenick [New York Post]

“..overwrought, asinine, exaggerated and boring..”
by Rex Reed [New York Observer]
3 of 4

“..F. Scott Fitzgerald's brilliant distillation of the Jazz Age is still here. You just have to work your way through a heavy filter of special effects and in-your-face bells and whistles to find it..”
by Bill Goodykoontz [Arizona Republic]
“..a hugely elaborate, well-cast adaptation of an American classic that will provoke every possible reaction..”
by Todd McCarthy [Hollywood Reporter]

“..a glitz-filled folly..”
by Claudia Puig [USA Today]

LATEST REVIEWS

RIDE :

“..Hunt, who also wrote and directed, didn't take her own advice. There's not a surprise in this entire movie..”
by Katharine Pushkar [NY Daily News]

CAS & DYLAN :

“..Priestley shows a steady eye for detail in his first time as director, although he lets the film stray too much into TV territory..”
by Linda Barnard [Toronto Star]

ANY DAY :

“..built on a number of ludicrous contrivances, Any Day eventually pushes its disparate pieces together into a misguided and oddly unsettling storyline..”
by Kate Erbland [The Dissolve]

HYENA :

“..there's something interesting in the way he [Gerard Johnson] deliberately denies his characters and the viewers any reprieve..”
by Martin Tsai [LA Times]

WELCOME TO ME :

“..a dark comedy that succeeds on its own itchy terms..”
by John DeFore [Hollywood Reporter]

FAR FROM THE MADDING CROWD :

“..works on all levels. Foremost, it is brilliantly directed by Thomas Vinterberg..”
by Claudia Puig [USA Today]

CLEVELAND ABDUCTION :

“..involving violence, sexual assault, torture, and, above all, captivity, abduction stories are a catch-all for the women-in-peril narrative that is the core theme of so many Lifetime movies..”
by Molly Eichel [A.V. Club]

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]
