3 of 5

“..you'd follow these two anywhere-even down a long, winding and perilously close-to-pointless road..”
by David Fear [Time Out New York]
3 of 5

“..whatever destination one ends up at seems incidental..”
by David Fear [Time Out New York]
“..to its detriment, never builds its ideas into a cohesive vision..”
by Stephen Holden [New York Times]
Review rate : B-

“..the unstructured, come-what-may quality of a road movie is part of its appeal, but it can be a pitfall, too..”
by Scott Tobias [AV Club]
3 of 4

“..the film shows a marvelous eye for the way travelers perceive a remote place, in this case Armenia..”
by Farran Smith Nehme [New York Post]
“..the film falters the further it drifts from that overheated, slightly delusional mood; the more precisely it's scripted, the less it feels true..”
by Karina Longworth [Village Voice]
2 of 4

“..it still feels like the film is doing too deliberate a job of withholding, while not giving us quite enough to connect to these characters and their situation..”
by Andrew Schenker [Slant Magazine]
“..in road movies, characters always share space with the surrounding..”
by David D'Arcy [Screen International]
“..filled with poetic and sometimes less-than-poetic lines..”
by Frank Lovece [Film Journal International]

LATEST REVIEWS

THE TRANSPORTER REFUELED :

“..this film is so stupid it may burst your appendix..”
by Colin Covert [Minneapolis Star Tribune]

BEFORE WE GO :

“..Evans and Eve are always charming, but Brooke's real-world problems ring false in a story held together by chintzy fatalism and the logic of a first draft..”
by David Ehrlich [Time Out New York]

BREAK POINT :

“..Jay Karas doesn't exactly reinvent the wheel as he puts this odd couple through the paces of getting in shape and reconciling old wounds, but he's helped by some laugh-out-loud quirk in Gene Hong's screenplay, nice comic chemistry between the two leads..”
by Sara Stewart [New York Post]

STEVE JOBS: MAN IN THE MACHINE :

“..sharp as always from Oscar-winning director Alex Gibney..”
by Joe Neumaier [NY Daily News]

CHLOE AND THEO :

“..borrowing themes from "Candide," it makes us wonder why bad things happen to good people. Including movie audiences..”
by Colin Covert [Minneapolis Star Tribune]

BLOODSUCKING BASTARDS :

“..the film takes a long time to get going because of all the prolonged, glib chit-chat that loses whatever satirical edge it might have initially possessed..”
by Michael Rechtshaffen [LA Times]

CONTRACTED: PHASE II :

“..has contracted many of the same problems with the first film - it's plagued with pacing and character issues - but still has enough gags for the home video audience..”
by Brad Miska [Bloody Disgusting]

EVEREST :

“..in narrative terms it's messy - as true stories tend to be. The dramatic focus is split between around half a dozen characters based on real people and it's not clear who we should root for..”
by Peter Bradshaw [The Guardian]

BEASTS OF NO NATION :

“..artful, accomplished but not entirely sustained adaptation..”
by Justin Chang [Variety]

45 YEARS :

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