REVIEWS RATE:  Critics  Not quite bad, but it's not recommended either.    Readers  Be the 1st!

“..watchable but unlikely to get much critical love, "Ledge" looks like a better leap for cable than theatrical..”
by Dennis Harvey [Variety]
1 of 5

“..preposterous - complete with eye-rolling dialogue, secular vs. biblical miscommunication, sexually-frustrated fanaticism, and finally, a reversion to Bible-quoting violence (Ezekiel 25:17? Come on pal, we've all seen Pulp Fiction)..”
by Sam Kressner [Filmcritic.com]
“..it's worth noting here..”
by Aaron Hillis [Village Voice]
“..is the cinematic equivalent of what used to be called a problem play, in which the characters' crises neatly mesh: in this case, neatly and preposterously..”
by Stephen Holden [NY Times]
“..fails to achieve anything like the same level of authenticity..”
by Kirk Honeycutt [Hollywood Reporter]
2 of 4

“..eventually fails, not because of its philosophical ideas, but because it introduces so many of them at the same time that even a viewer with a score pad can't keep up..”
by Rex Reed [New York Observer]

GIRLHOOD :

SUPREMACY :

“..despite a vein-popping lead performance (and Ms. Olivieri‚Äôs touching take on the classic broken-down moll), "Supremacy" remains stubbornly uninvolving..”

BACKSTREET BOYS: SHOW 'EM WHAT YOU'RE MADE OF :

BEAUTIFUL & TWISTED :

“..a lurid yet compelling docudrama..”
by Hal Boedeker [Orlando Sentinel]
