“..winning performances grace this entertaining but overlong Big Chill-esque dramedy..”
by Michael Rechtshaffen [Hollywood Reporter]
“..rather than crafting a French film that will appeal to Americans, Canet has made one that's altogether too Hollywood to stand out in stateside cinemas..”
by Mark Jenkins [NPR]
4 of 5

“..it's overlong, but with its gorgeous cast, irreverent humour and beautifully drawn characters, this smart comedy-drama is the kind of movie Couples Retreat and Grown Ups should have been..”
by Anna Smith [Empire Online]
“..it doesn't peer very deeply into the souls of these spoiled, marginally sympathetic narcissists, whose ties to one another seem superficial, its commercial future in America seems problematic..”
by Stephen Holden [NY Times]
2.5 of 4

“..is such a blatant rip-off of a far better American movie that it could have been called "Le Big Chill"..”
by Kyle Smith [New York Post]
“..after the narrative precision required for "Tell No One," Canet might have welcomed a looser approach. But two and a half hours is an absurdly bloated running time for such a trifle. It's not a trip to remember..”
by Sheri Linden [LA Times]
3 of 4

“.."Little White Lies" will be just as charmed as it was..”
by Stephen Whitty [Newark Star-Ledger]

CANTINFLAS :

“..Moreno was famous for verbal innovations and linguistic skill in his portrayal of the underdog, but the film doesn't capture the hilarity it seeks..”
by Claudia Puig [USA Today]

THE LAST OF ROBIN HOOD :

“..but in the end it's a fond, fairly toothless B-movie take on a romance that wasn't so much May-December as straight-up statutory..”
by Leah Greenblatt [Entertainment Weekly]

GHOSTBUSTERS :

“..deliriously inventive, evergreen 1984 family comedy..”
by Tom Huddleston [Time Out London]

AS ABOVE, SO BELOW :

“..boasts sporadically electrifying visuals but a frustratingly messy mythology..”
by Matt Risley [Total Film]

THE CALLING :

“..the puzzle at the centre of the tale just seems so outlandish and preposterous, it's difficult to take the film seriously..”
by Linda Barnard [Toronto Star]

LIFE OF CRIME :

“..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]

THE DAMNED :

“..is The Damned scary? Yes, a bit..”
by Ernest Hardy [Village Voice]

JAMIE MARKS IS DEAD :

“..the film uses its phantasmagoric conceit, a sickly-hued poetry, and eerie sound design to build metaphors for closeted homoeroticism and melancholic unfulfillment..”
by Aaron Hillis [Village Voice]

LAST WEEKEND :

“..the most striking moments in Last Weekend are not the expected ones..”
by Serena Donadoni [Village Voice]

THE CONGRESS :

“..Ari Folman, however, is a filmmaker who, almost to a fault is, determined to make movies in his own inimitable way..”
by Jordan Hoffman [Film.com]
