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]
1 of 4

“..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]

LATEST REVIEWS

THE CROSSING 2 :

“..an inert follow-up that doesn't deliver enough visual or emotional payoff in its overdue yet short-lived shipwreck climax..”
by Maggie Lee [Variety]

SHAUN THE SHEEP :

“..this is the kind of stuff that has been, and will be, funny forever - built on eternal human fears and foibles that, whatever your age, make complete and hilarious sense..”
by Robbie Collin [Daily Telegraph]

THE END OF THE TOUR :

“..The End Of The Tour largely remains a two-man show, expertly approximating the vagaries of actual conversation-the starts and stops that occur when two strangers are getting to know each other, one sentence at a time..”
by A.A. Dowd [A.V. Club]

NORTHMEN: A VIKING SAGA :

“..Bastian Zach and Matthias Bauer actually have to come up with something other than people shooting, stabbing and bludgeoning each other to death. If only they had put this kind of effort into creating characters worth caring about in the first place..”
by Martin Tsai [LA Times]

JENNY'S WEDDING :

“..ultimately, it becomes more a film about Jenny's parents as they learn to embrace and understand her..”
by Katie Walsh [LA Times]

STATEN ISLAND SUMMER :

“..frustratingly, the movie is plenty likable when it's not trying to show off its wistfulness. As a reader of the fake news, Jost should know that sometimes silly jokes are their own reward..”
by Jesse Hassenger [A.V. Club]

A LEGO BRICKUMENTARY :

“..there isn't much the viewer won't be able to answer about Legos by the end of "A Lego Brickumentary," except, perhaps, why he or she has just watched a 90-minute commercial for Legos..”
by John Anderson [Newsday]

BEST OF ENEMIES :

“..a timely but unsatisfying exploration of a series of exchanges between conservative Buckley and liberal Vidal makes its case too little and too late..”
by Inkoo Kang [The Wrap]

EXTINCTION :

“..if only they had more screen time. The film's core problems: too little zombie and too much plot..”
by Katherine Pushkar [NY Daily News]

THE SEVENTH DWARF :

“..short on charm and utterly devoid of magic..”
by Justin Chang [Variety]
