REVIEWS RATE:  Critics  Not quite bad, but it's not recommended either.    Readers  5 of 5 [Rate It]

“..with its fairy-tale tinge, the film has neither the fever-dream discomfort of "Wild at Heart" nor the satirical oomph of "Lolita"..”
by Mark Olsen [Los Angeles Times]
“..what is watchable here is made possible by the sheer will of the gifted Moretz, who's in every scene as the precocious Luli..”
by Andrew Lapin [NPR]
“..too odd to be funny, too cold-hearted to be tragic..”
by Chuck Wilson [Village Voice]
“..the rest of Hick adds up to nothing more than a tax write-off..”
by Rex Reed [New York Observer]
1.5 of 5

“..the movie also seems a bit unclear in its motives..”
by Stephanie Zacharek [Movieline]
0.5 of 4

“..only too resonant..”
by R. Kurt Osenlund [Slant Magazine]
“..ms. Portes's script strains credulity, and it's not helped by Mr. Martini, who can't find the right tone..”
by Rachel Saltz [New York Times]
Review rate : D-

“..more incompetent specifically when it is concerned with violent and sexual material..”
by James Rocchi [The Playlist]

“..leaving a bad taste..”
by Lou Lumenick [New York Post]
Review rate : D-

“..is one of the most unclean and clammy films I've ever had to endure at a film festival..”
by James Rocchi [The Playlist]
Review rate : F

“..is a trashy soap opera that could care less about characters, pacing, narrative, or even basic human interaction..”
by Matt Goldberg [Collider.com]
“..an overly familiar coming-of-age drama that morphs into an unconvincing slice of blood-soaked Southern gothic nastiness..”
by Alan Hunter [Screendaily.com]

NIGHTCRAWLER :

“.."Taxi Driver" meets "Network" in this dark satire-thriller. Gyllenhaal is terrific, while Russo may have just launched a comeback..”
by Rafer Guzman [Newsday]

23 BLAST :

“..its better-known cast members-like Stephen Lang, who plays Travis' coach-don't thoroughly embarrass themselves, mostly because the pokey script and Baker's ambition-free direction don't give them much opportunity to..”
by Ignatiy Vishnevetsky [A.V. Club]

“..the movie takes on a haunting dimension, even while actively dodging biopic cliches and falling into long lulls where not much happens. Fanning manages to bring soulfulness to a character who mostly reacts to others..”
