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

HOME :

“..Home doesn't stand out as fresh or particularly funny. There are stretches that feel flat..”
by Linda Barnard [Toronto Star]

GET HARD :

“..Hart and Ferrell may not be Pryor and Wilder, but they score several laughs in this slim comedy..”
by Rafer Guzman [Newsday]

ELECTRIC SLIDE :

“..lazy and contrived retread can ever hope to be..”
by Rodrigo Perez [The Playlist]

NED RIFLE :

“..Ned Rifle is top notch quirk and really exciting to watch..”
by Mike Shutt [Rope of Silicon]

SERENA :

“..while the story falls a bit into melodrama, that can't chop away at the solid drama the stars and director build beautifully..”
by Joe Neumaier [NY Daily News]

WHILE WE'RE YOUNG :

“..in While We're Young, writer-director Noah Baumbach gets hold of a good satirical premise and does halfway well by it, maybe even two-thirds..”
by David Edelstein [Vulture]

NIGHTLIGHT :

“..it's all very familiar in that Blair Witch kind of way, with neither the characters nor situations proving remotely interesting..”
by Frank Scheck [Hollywood Reporter]

WHITE GOD :

“..the way director Kornel Mundruczo got Body and Luke to run the gamut of emotions from face-licking adorableness to teeth-baring killers baying for blood is genuinely impressive..”
by Cath Clarke [Time Out London]

APARTMENT TROUBLES :

“..a nearly laughless comedy that doesn't do its writer/director/stars any favors..”
by Roger Moore [Movienation]

DEAD RISING: WATCHTOWER :

“..has some recognizable stars, but they are trapped in a slim story padded with lots and lots of flesh-eating..”
by Neil Genzlinger [NY Times]
