5 of 5

“..this is one smart film from someone with a singular voice who knows their craft..”
by David Edwards [Daily Mirror]
2 of 5

“..there's a thin line between intelligent ambiguity and unintelligible pretentiousness..”
by Christopher Tookey [Daily Mail]
Review rate : B+

“..the plot weaves unpredictably, getting more shocking and tense in its final third..”
by Noel Murray [AV Club]
“..the movie enlivens its schematic, episodic story with some teary domestic drama and a wacky Wicker Man ending..”
by Joshua Rothkopf [Time Out New York]
4 of 5

“..the moodscape of Kill List is inspired, the climax less so, and the more like a conventional scary movie it becomes, and the more clearly it reminds you of other scary movies, the less effective it is..”
by Peter Bradshaw [The Guardian]
“..the final twist is both baffling and repulsive, but as an evocation of the triumph of evil, it's peerless..”
by David Edelstein [New York Magazine]
Review rate : D

“..suffers from a complete absence of dread and suspense that diminishes the effectiveness of the movie's climactic stretch..”
by David Nusair [Reel Film Reviews]
4.5 of 5

“..not many filmmakers credit their audiences with this much intelligence..”
by Rich Cline [Shadows on the Wall]
Review rate : A

“..most of the film's on-screen violence is more emotional than physical..”
by Todd Gilchrist [Boxoffice Magazine]
Review rate : D+

“..like pieces of divergent puzzles forced together, this movie ends up coming across as disjointed and disorganized..”
by Bill Gibron [Filmcritic.com]
4 of 5

“..is implausible, portentous and, worst of all, unscary..”
by Charlotte O'Sullivan [This is London]
5 of 5

“..highly recommended and one of the best films of the year..”
by Matthew Turner [ViewLondon]
Review rate : B

“..contains some really appallingly explicit scenes of killing and torture, but it alternates these with scenes in which violence is merely implied..”
by Glenn Kenny [MSN Movies]
“..climaxing in an ending that elicited gasps of horror from the packed midnight madness audience I saw this with..”
by Chris Bumbray [JoBlo's Movie Emporium]
“..brutal and bloody and utterly unnerving..”
by Chuck Wilson [Village Voice]
1.5 of 4

“..all of those features are bugs, and at the risk of mixing metaphors..”
by Jaime N. Christley [Slant Magazine]
4 of 5

“..a dark, funny, disturbing picture-not for the squeamish, though it's as given to subtle creepiness as outright horrors..”
by Kim Newman [Empire Magazine]

LATEST REVIEWS

23 BLAST :

“..its better-known cast members-like Stephen Lang, who plays Travis' coach-don't thoroughly embarrass themselves, mostly because the pokey script and Baker's ambition-free direction don't give them much opportunity to..”
by Ignatiy Vishnevetsky [A.V. Club]

MR. DYNAMITE: THE RISE OF JAMES BROWN :

“..Mr. Dynamite may finally be Gibney's most psychologically and socially perceptive film to date..”
by Chris Cabin [Slant Magazine]

LOW DOWN :

“..the movie takes on a haunting dimension, even while actively dodging biopic cliches and falling into long lulls where not much happens. Fanning manages to bring soulfulness to a character who mostly reacts to others..”
by Drew Taylor [Time Out New York]

GLEN CAMPBELL: I'LL BE ME :

“..the movie might stir that in you, too..”
by Alan Scherstuhl [Village Voice]

HAPPY NEW YEAR :

“..the cast pulls off their acts well; and leave you with some feel-good moments..”
by Madhureeta Mukherjee [Time of India]

FORCE MAJEURE :

“..this stylish film has a nerve-cinching grip that makes it more alarming than most horror flicks..”
by Kyle Smith [New York Post]

THE GREAT INVISIBLE :

“..a powerful documentary..”
by John DeFore [Hollywood Reporter]

GOODBYE TO LANGUAGE :

“..a characteristically vigorous, playful..”
by Scott Foundas [Variety]

STONEHEARST ASYLUM :

“..a Victoria-era psychological thriller with some good twisty..”
by Betsy Sharkey [LA Times]

WHITE BIRD IN A BLIZZARD :

“..clunky, ugly and dull mash-up of a mystery about a missing housewife..”
by Lou Lumenick [New York Post]
