2 of 5

“..worse yet, the same can be said of this airless, uninvolving movie..”
by Manohla Dargis [New York Times]
4 of 5

“..the mix of the absurd and the acerbic is often sublime; for Almodovar, even a country's deeply ingrained dilemmas are occasion for some leavening burlesque..”
by Keith Uhlich [Time Out New York]
Review rate : B-

“..the actors are charming, but the comedy of repression and liberation is so weightless that the laughs teeter into yawns..”
by Owen Gleiberman [Entertainment Weekly]
2 of 5

“..on the plus side, the movie is fun to look at, with its pops of color against flat, soap-operatic sets..”
by Elizabeth Weitzman [New York Daily News]
“..I'm So Excited! is characterized by a distinct brand of unsuccessful yet ambitious storytelling, the kind often found in minor works by major masters..”
by Zachary Wigon [Village Voice]
4 of 5

“..an opening disclaimer disavows any connection between the film and reality, but still 'I'm So Excited' is something like a state-of-the-nation screwball farce..”
by Ben Walters [Time Out]

LATEST REVIEWS

BEARS :

“..another typically engaging, vividly shot entry in the successful Disney wildlife series..”
by Michael Rechtshaffen [Hollywood Reporter]

A PROMISE :

“..awkward, passionless drama conveys neither the sensuality nor the drawn-out sense of longing required..”
by Justin Chang [Variety]

FADING GIGOLO :

“..this second film is the keeper: the kind of keenly observed cultural clash that still finds room for dancing, a sultry fish-deboning (you just have to see it) and awakening..”
by Joshua Rothkopf [Time Out New York]

A HAUNTED HOUSE 2 :

“..the script is lazy, recycling countless genre cliches rather than inventing novel twists..”
by Colin Covert [Minneapolis Star Tribune]

TIME IS ILLMATIC :

“..the documentary offers a number of reasons to appreciate its ongoing legacy, with sufficient production values to hold the tribute together..”
by Eric Kohn [indieWIRE]

HEAVEN IS FOR REAL :

“..a supposedly true story that uses faulty logic to reduce the complexity of faith to a fairy-tale. By rights, it should displease atheists and believers alike..”
by Rafer Guzman [Newsday]

ANTBOY :

“.."Antboy" is peppered with fun, cleverly shot and edited action bits as well as apropos comic-book style visuals..”
by Gary Goldstein [LA Times]

13 SINS :

“..a creepy little diversion that ultimately unravels long before its hero's fragile psyche does..”
by Justin Chang [Variety]

SMALL TIME :

“..when a film about relationships features sentiments expressed as neatly and simplistically as that, the storytelling feels mechanical and contrived..”
by Zachary Wigon [Village Voice]

AUTHORS ANONYMOUS :

“..the film needs to be reminded of the same..”
by Calum Marsh [Village Voice]
