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 INTRUDERS :

“..this is one of those movies that's not very good but not so offensively bad that I regret ever seeing it. No doubt, it's also something I probably won't remember in a week..”
by Brian Oliver [The Movieman]

FOCUS :

“..like a counterfeit handbag: It looks great but falls apart when you reach into it..”
by Rafer Guzman [Newsday]

A LA MALA :

“..thoroughly predictable, and despite an original setup, the movie never rouses the emotions..”
by Marjorie Baumgarten [Austin Chronicle]

THE HUNTING GROUND :

“..the stories are horrifying, but essential to hear..”
by Joe Neumaier [NY Daily News]

OUT OF THE DARK :

“..a horror movie with an anti-globalist bent that's more interesting than its halfhearted scares..”
by Sara Stewart [New York Post]

THE SALVATION :

“..delivering a highly stylized widescreen revenge picture loaded with weapons and driven entirely by "superficial action"..”
by Peter Debruge [Variety]

EVERLY :

“..the film isn't particularly convincing either as a rousing anthology of bloodsport set pieces or a deeply felt portrait of revenge and reunion..”
by Vadim Rizov [A.V. Club]

'71 :

“..the hard-charging debut feature from TV director Yann Demange, makes us live every vivid, violent moment with him, the threat of death lurking at every turn..”
by Peter Travers [Rolling Stone]

BLUEBIRD :

“..undoubtedly a remarkable achievement, especially for a first-time filmmaker..”
by Jordan Hoffman [Film.com]

THE LAZARUS EFFECT :

“..still, "The Lazarus Effect," clocking in at a brief 86 minutes, doesn't go far enough, isn't scary enough and has mad scientists who just aren't mad enough..”
by Joe Neumaier [NY Daily News]
