THE CONGRESS :

“..Ari Folman, however, is a filmmaker who, almost to a fault is, determined to make movies in his own inimitable way..”
by Jordan Hoffman [Film.com]

LUCKY IN LOVE :

“..is the typical Hallmark Channel movie with a light-hearted story, some beautiful people and some OK acting..”
by [Movieman's Guide to the Movies]

THE NOVEMBER MAN :

“..overly familiar spy film serves its star well..”
by John DeFore [Hollywood Reporter]

PREDESTINATION :

“..sibling filmmakers Peter and Michael Spierig offer a skillful and atmospheric adaptation of Robert A. Heinlein's 1960 short story " - All You Zombies - ," and if it's better in the intimate early stages than in the more grandiose later passages..”
by Justin Chang [Variety]

FELONY :

“..thanks to Saville's tightly controlled direction and a superlative cast, the mere exchange of glances builds as much suspense as the kinetic action sequence that opens the pic..”
by Ronnie Scheib [Variety]

THE PRINCE :

“..the action sequences are competently directed, but exhibit virtually no flair or invention, as Patric simply stands there shooting at waves of anonymous henchmen until they all fall down..”
by Andrew Barker [Variety]

ANOTHER ME :

“..the ham-fisted script is incapable of a multilayered approach, while the helming and editing are at the level of mediocre TV..”
by Jay Weissberg [Variety]

MARDAANI :

“..a bland version of Liam Neeson's Taken..”
by Sukanya Verma [rediff.com]

THE ONE I LOVE :

“..so is this terrific movie..”

KINK :

“..the movie often feels like a full-length ad for a great workplace, which just happens to stash whips and chains in the stationery closet..”
by Elizabeth Weitzman [NY Daily News]
