REVIEWS RATE:  Critics  Nothing's perfect, but it's worth seeing.    Readers  5 of 5 [Rate It]

“..this amazing compilation of videos all shot the same day around the globe is one for the ages..”
by Kirk Honeycutt [Hollywood Reporter]
4 of 5

“..the quality of the film surprisingly good, but one can't help thinking that a dozen different films could have been made with the material, each as intriguing as the other..”
by Derek Malcolm [This Is London]
3 of 5

“..an impressive achievement on several levels that's by turns moving, funny and awe-inspiring, though it's also a little too manipulative and over-produced in places..”
by Matthew Turner [ViewLondon]
“..a surprisingly coherent whole..”
by Robert Koehler [Variety]
3 of 5

“..a simple-but-brilliant conception, for sure, and, at its best, the amalgam of footage works like a rhythmic visual poem, with sections structured beautifully to musical accompaniment..”
by Andrew Pulver [The Guardian]

“..the movie can conjure up futuristic images, but the story is nothing we haven't seen before...”
by Stephanie Merry [Washington Post]

POLTERGEIST :

“..the spirits may have been willing with Poltergeist but the movie is weak..”
by Linda Barnard [Toronto Star]

by Joe Neumaier [NY Daily News]

THE HUMAN CENTIPEDE III :

“..more depravity, more terrible acting..”
by Chris Nashawaty [Entertainment Weekly]

CHOCOLATE CITY :

“..a black riff on a certain stripper movie smash..”

ALOFT :

“..the rest of it - the healer, the journalist, the falcons - is just a thick, tedious layer of frost on the window..”
by Katharine Pushkar [NY Daily News]

RETURN TO SENDER :

“..the camera prowls menacingly through the interiors, but the writers seem too content with their improbable conceit to bother with back story or character arcs..”
by David Parkinson [Radio Times]

ROOMMATE WANTED :

“..there's plenty of entertainment value to found. Just don't expect to leave the film with a smile on your face and joy in your heart..”
by Blair Hoyle [Cinema Slasher]

CAROL :

“..it is a creamily sensuous, richly observed piece of work, handsomely detailed and furnished..”
by Peter Bradshaw [The Guardian]

YOUTH :

“..Youth has a wan eloquence and elegance, though freighted with sentimentality and a strangely unearned and uninteresting macho-geriatric regret for lost time, lost film projects, lost love..”
by Peter Bradshaw [The Guardian]
