by Elizabeth Weitzman [New York Daily News]
4 of 5

“..there are many bits and pieces in the drama that will be instantly recognizable and universally identifiable as signs of aging..”
by Frederic and Mary Ann Brussat [Spirituality and Practice]
1.5 of 4

by Don Groves [sbs.com.au]
“..that movies crafted to pander to older viewers..”
by Andrew O'Hehir [Salon.com]
“..suffers from a stridently jaunty jazz score, and some gags that don't rise above sitcom level..”
by Mark Jenkins [NPR]

“..moves at a poky pace even by American indie standards..”
by Lou Lumenick [New York Post]

“..at least there isn't a laugh track..”
by Stephen Holden [New York Times]

by Michael Atkinson [Village Voice]

SUMMER OF BLOOD :

THE CULTURE HIGH :

“..an amateurish hand is in the term-paper-like voice-over narration and the inclusion of underqualified talking heads..”
by Martin Tsai [LA Times]
