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

SELMA :

“..one of the most powerful films of the year..”
by Chris Nashawaty [Entertainment Weekly]

AMERICAN SNIPER :

“..a solidly-staged but unexceptional picture, filled with overly familiar dramatic situations and a surprisingly blindered view of the world around its central character..”
by Drew McWeeny [HitFix]

ASK ME ANYTHING :

“..Ask Me Anything is a head above the glut of similarly themed and routinely rashly..”
by Nicholas Bell [Ioncinema]

BIG EYES :

“..despite its sharp feminist sting, Big Eyes never loses its light touch..”
by Chris Nashawaty [Entertainment Weekly]

PK :

“..PK movie is all that you anticipated, a paisa-vasool entertaining movie that will enthrall you for sure..”
by Priyanka Prasad [Filmibeat]

INTO THE WOODS :

“..will entertain youth audiences yet contains enough sly humor and narrative complexity to keep adults engaged..”
by David Rooney [Hollywood Reporter]

NIGHT AT THE MUSEUM: SECRET OF THE TOMB :

“..there's a serenity to museum visits, especially if it's a place you know and love. "Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb," amazingly, recaptures that feeling in big-studio franchise form..”
by Joe Neumaier [NY Daily News]

ELF: BUDDY'S MUSICAL CHRISTMAS :

“.."Elf" offers some slight, warmed over charms, but viewers would be better off catching one of the umpteen TV showings of the original "Elf" movie..”
by Rob Owen [Pittsburgh Post-Gazette]

THE INTERVIEW :

“..wild and wildly uneven..”
by Todd McCarthy [Hollywood Reporter]

TWO DAYS, ONE NIGHT :

“..it's a rare film of unforced simplicity that will stick with you for a long time. And it's honest right to its perfectly judged ending..”
by Kim Newman [Empire Online]
