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]

THE WATER DIVINER :

“..the overstuffed story feels bombastic and contrived..”
by Claudia Puig [USA Today]

LITTLE BOY :

“..though occasionally sticky sweet and not always subtle, it's also a smart and very moving story..”
by Rafer Guzman [Newsday]

THE FORGER :

“..a movie where the colors blur sloppily..”
by Joe Neumaier [NY Daily News]

AFTER THE BALL :

“.."After the Ball" is a winning if predictable fable..”
by Tom Keogh [Seattle Times]

BROTHERLY LOVE :

“..despite the blazing guns, this script is not so tough..”
by Farran Smith Nehme [New York Post]

BLACKBIRD :

“..it's such a quiet, simple moment in a movie full of more overwrought ones - including a spiritual "deliverance" - but it makes a lasting impression. "Blackbird" would have benefited from using that approach more, rather than saddling a compelling drama..”
by Stephanie Merry [Washington Post]

SEE YOU IN VALHALLA :

“..is as deadly as its funereal subject matter..”
by Michael O'Sullivan [Washington Post]

ADULT BEGINNERS :

“..it's all very low stakes. We know how this is going to turn out. But it is a pleasure watching Kroll and Byrne to the end..”
by Molly Eichel [Philadelphia Inquirer]

JUST BEFORE I GO :

“..Courteney Cox's misbegotten project is a comedy-drama that, to Cox's credit, doesn't feel at all like a TV sitcom..”
by Joe Neumaier [NY Daily News]

MISERY LOVES COMEDY :

“..the funny folks in actor Kevin Pollak's well-structured doc can actually break down what they do..”
by Joe Neumaier [NY Daily News]
