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]

SELFLESS :

“.."Self/Less" is brain/less entertainment, but if there's any consolation, the impression it leaves is so fleeting that you can soon replace it with better movie memories..”
by Kevin Jagernauth [The Playlist]

FAITH OF OUR FATHERS :

“..a clumsily told story of friendship and wartime remembrance that has a tough time serving up a halfway believable moment..”
by Justin Chang [Variety]

STUNG :

“..director Benni Diez tries for schlock shocks in this giant-bug flick. Sadly, what's left out here is the fun..”
by Joe Neumaier [NY Daily News]

THE DEATH OF SUPERMAN LIVES: WHAT HAPPENED? :

“..the movie is fun to watch, even if it isn't always fully satisfying. Too much time is spent depicting all the designs for the film that were ultimately scotched..”
by Stephen Farber [Hollywood Reporter]

JACKIE & RYAN :

“..a homey but surprisingly enjoyable ride through honest old mid-America..”
by Deborah Young [Hollywood Reporter]

AMY :

“..a tender, intimate, nuanced portrait of a pop idol with an appetite for destruction..”
by Stephen Dalton [Hollywood Reporter]

MALA MALA :

“..Mala Mala has no kinship to the rawness, if not ugliness, of Jennie Livingston's classic documentary, whose camera worked more like a curious open pore, and less like a hagiographic machine..”
by Diego Costa [Slant Magazine]

LARRY KRAMER IN LOVE AND ANGER :

“..the film follows the familiar narrative, which is neatly compressed in the title..”
by Matthew Gilbert [Boston Globe]

MAGIC MIKE XXL :

“..as Magic Mike XXL closes with fireworks and Tatum's winning smile, the film is obviously satisfied that it has overturned some mired tropes - and frankly, so are we..”
by Stacey May Fowles [Globe and Mail]

TERMINATOR GENISYS :

“..a bad time-travel movie..”
by Chris Nashawaty [Entertainment Weekly]
