by Frederic and Mary Ann Brussat [Spirituality and Practice]

by Don Groves [sbs.com.au]
“..that movies crafted to pander to older viewers..”
by Andrew O'Hehir [Salon.com]

by Mark Jenkins [NPR]

by Lou Lumenick [New York Post]

“..it is supremely intelligent and moving and Rampling and Courtenay are superb..”
by Peter Bradshaw [The Guardian]

A WALK IN THE WOODS :

ZIPPER :

WHEN ANIMALS DREAM :

“..rich with tone but otherwise lacking bite..”

“..obviously "#Lucky Number" will not appeal to everyone but for those that do find it entertaining, they will not be disappointed..”
