2 of 5

“..ultimately it's the cast, more than the crime, that gives this story life..”
by Elizabeth Weitzman [New York Daily News]
3 of 4

“..Schechter's soul-scored film is impeccably styled for the time period, and its easy pacing reminds me of the gold standard for Leonard adaptations, "Out of Sight"..”
by Sara Stewart [New York Post]
3 of 5

“..nothing about Life of Crime is going to linger in memory, save the unassuming way Leonard devoted himself to character and story mechanics..”
by Joshua Rothkopf [Time Out New York]
Review rate : C-

“..in fact, the only mystery in this limp caper is why Aniston took such a meh role. At least the kitschy, '70s-era details provide some distraction..”

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

A WALK IN THE WOODS :

ZIPPER :

by Katharine Pushkar [NY Daily News]

7 CHINESE BROTHERS :

“..feels like an homage to the early work of Wes Anderson with its plinky soundtrack, solipsistic banter and emphasis on uniforms..”
by Sara Stewart [New York Post]

TURBO KID :

by Soren Andersen [Seattle Times]

WHEN ANIMALS DREAM :

“..rich with tone but otherwise lacking bite..”
by Jordan Hoffman [NY Daily News]

POD :

“..a highly effective tale of terror that does a nice job of setting an unsettling tone from the onset and very rarely lets up until the film's conclusion..”
by Heather Wixson [Dailydead]

#LUCKY NUMBER :

“..obviously "#Lucky Number" will not appeal to everyone but for those that do find it entertaining, they will not be disappointed..”
by James McDonald [Irish Film Critic]

Z FOR ZACHARIAH :

“..the dramatic tension considerably less, in a movie that feels stranded somewhere between serious artistic ambition and the dystopian franchise-building of "The Hunger Games," "Divergent," et al..”
by Scott Foundas [Variety]
