1.5 of 4

“..would have only been a somber, self-serious film about the ethics of violence..”
by Ed Gonzalez [Slant Magazine]
“..slick moralizing grows exponentially as the plot, wrapped in travelogue photography, transparently expository dialogue, and cheap thrills..”
by Ella Taylor [Village Voice]
“..feels a little too overstuffed in terms of all those significant actions and fateful reactions..”
by Michael Rechtshaffen [Hollywood Reporter]
Review rate : B+

“..Bier's inviting film asks but doesn't answer: Is the male urge for violence innate? Is it passed from father to son? And if it is, how can we teach our children well?..”
by Lisa Schwarzbaum [Entertainment Weekly]
“..auds would line up for such quality fare..”
by Peter Debruge [Variety]

WHEN ANIMALS DREAM :

“..rich with tone but otherwise lacking bite..”

POD :

by Heather Wixson [Dailydead]

#LUCKY NUMBER :

“..obviously "#Lucky Number" will not appeal to everyone but for those that do find it entertaining, they will not be disappointed..”
by James McDonald [Irish Film Critic]

Z FOR ZACHARIAH :

“..the dramatic tension considerably less, in a movie that feels stranded somewhere between serious artistic ambition and the dystopian franchise-building of "The Hunger Games," "Divergent," et al..”
by Scott Foundas [Variety]
