LATEST REVIEWS

LOVE & MERCY :

“..as stunning as the two lead actors are, the film is hijacked by a pair of external antagonists..”
by Joshua Rothkopf [Time Out New York]

SPY :

“..a dazzling transformation that represents the actress's smartest, funniest, most versatile and fully sustained bigscreen showcase to date..”
by Justin Chang [Variety]

ENTOURAGE :

“..the big-screen version of "Entourage" is constructed like the series, another chapter in a sequel-ready story. If you wanted something more, you won't get it..”
by Bill Goodykoontz [Arizona Republic]

RESULTS :

“..Smulders, Pearce, and Corrigan are loose and eminently likable, and the direction is so in tune with the actors that one is almost inclined to think of Results as a movie carried entirely by performance, overlooking how much its shape depends on style..”
by Ignatiy Vishnevetsky [A.V. Club]

GEMMA BOVERY :

“..the emotions are florid and the entanglements heated. But the film become preoccupied with, as Flaubert would say, the pettiness and mediocrity of daily life..”
by Joe Neumaier [NY Daily News]

NIGHTINGALE :

“.."Nightingale" feels more like a fascinating monologue than it does a wholly realized film..”
by Brian Lowry [Variety]

“..a film that never quite achieves its potential..”
by Cath Clarke [Time Out London]

HOT GIRLS WANTED :

“..an intimate and ultimately harrowing peek inside the world of amateur porn..”
by Geoff Berkshire [Variety]
