3 of 4

“..it's less satisfying than either "The Sopranos" or "Goodfellas"..”
by Lisa Kennedy [Denver Post]
4 of 5

“..it all leads up to a punch line so thoroughly anti-inspirational and mordantly funny and just about perfect..”
by Glenn Kenny [MSN Movies]
“..is terribly smart in every respect, with ne'er-a-false note performances and superb craft work from top to bottom, but it never lets you forget it..”
by Todd McCarthy [Hollywood Reporter]
“..is a blistering, at times hypnotic minor movie that wraps itself in an importance it never earns. But there's no doubt that it has made me an Andrew Dominik believer..”
by Owen Gleiberman [Entertainment Weekly]
Review rate : A-

“..feels like something new in the crime film because it couldn't care less about getting the viewer acclimated. It isn't loaded with clever twists or any of the hallmarks of hardcore realism, but it does have punch..”
by Jordan Hoffman [Film.com]
“..at once a bit pretentious and worth savoring by those who don't mind a low-octane approach..”
by Justin Chang [Variety]
3 of 4

“..a stylish thriller worth seeing -- despite its relentless violence -- for its sharp dialogue, mesmerizing photography and gritty performances..”
by Claudia Puig [USA Today]

LATEST REVIEWS

THE IMITATION GAME :

“..its various riffs on codes, whether moral, sexual, societal or German, are plain to see rather than enigmatic or enlightening. Luckily it's all anchored in a storming performance from Cumberbatch..”
by Dave Calhoun [Time Out London]

PENGUINS OF MADAGASCAR :

“..a frantic, peppy, in-your-face slice of irreverent toon action..”
by Geoff Berkshire [Variety]

HORRIBLE BOSSES 2 :

“..good for a few laughs, but not much more..”
by Justin Lowe [Hollywood Reporter]

THE SEARCH :

“..the film as a whole is tepid and familiar enough that it's hard to even find much to salvage in the acting..”
by Oliver Lyttelton [The Playlist]

RISE OF THE LEGEND :

“..a slick, polished and entertaining reboot of a folk legend..”
by Elizabeth Kerr [Hollywood Reporter]

FOOD CHAINS :

“..Rawal takes a compassionate but dry approach that suggests he's focused on making a call to arms, not art. The best documentaries manage to be both..”
by Elizabeth Weitzman [NY Daily News]

SEASONS OF LOVE :

“.."Seasons of Love" is a tedious love story that doesn't have the drama nor excitement of even ten minutes on the F train..”
by Monique A. Williams [Shadow and Act]

A ROYAL CHRISTMAS :

“.."A Royal Christmas" may not be the brightest bulb on the tree, if only because the story is so underpowered by original ideas..”
by Nancy DeWolf Smith [Wall Street Journal]

HELLO LADIES: THE MOVIE :

“..as a romantic comedy that stands on its own, Hello Ladies: The Movie hits every objective. It's a structurally sound movie, which may sound like an insult but simply means that it's not just a stretched out episode of Hello Ladies..”
by LaToya Ferguson [A.V. Club]

LATE PHASES :

“..Late Phases fails to deliver either shocks or real drama..”
by Katie Rife [A.V. Club]
