3 of 5

“..this is a shallow but watchable movie..”
by Peter Bradshaw [The Guardian]
4 of 5

“..the unavoidable flickers of Alan Partridge often shine through, but that doesn't hinder Coogan from being an excellent, avuncular guide for this tour through the life of a man once dubbed The King of Soho..”
by Simon Reynolds [Digital Spy]
3 of 5

“..the movie doesn't make any of this seem particularly attractive or even especially sexy..”
by Stephen Holden [New York Times]
“..Steve Coogan's performance is consistently amusing, but the poignant dimensions the director appears to be seeking don't quite come together..”
by David Rooney [Hollywood Reporter]
2 of 5

“..maybe if screenwriter Matt Greenhalgh had focused on a briefer period in Raymond's hyper-lucrative career instead of flipping through nearly three dozen years of highlights - and some low points - the story would have felt more pointed and urgent..”
by Gary Goldstein [Los Angeles Times]
2.5 of 4

“..and it is ultimately more compelling as a long, colorful look at Swinging London in the 1960s than as autobiographical drama..”
by Lou Lumenick [New York Post]
4 of 5

“..an entertaining and ultimately powerfully emotional biopic with a strong script and terrific performances from a superb cast..”
by Matthew Turner [ViewLondon]
3 of 5

“..a solid, straightforward biopic about a fascinating individual and his destructive relationships, with strong performances and a healthy sense of naffness..”
by Dan Jolin [Empire Magazine]
“.."The Look of Love" feels somewhat superficial..”
by Dennis Harvey [Variety]

“.."The Loft" is a stylish whodunit that struggles to stitch the label "Hitchcockian" right on the inner pocket..”
by Roger Moore [Movienation]

BLACK OR WHITE :

“..Black or White is an uncommonly brave film but it loses its gumption at the end..”
by James Berardinelli [ReelViews]

AMIRA & SAM :

“..nothing feels truly at stake, no matter how weighty the risks the characters face, but there are charming moments along the way..”

SUBURBAN GOTHIC :

“..it's unsatisfying overall, trying too hard to look like it doesn't care..”
by Brian Orndorf [Blu-ray.com]

GIRLHOOD :

“..director Celine Sciamma explores a very different coming-of-age than in her 2011 film... with this vibrant portrait of a teenage girl..”

WILD CARD :

“.."Wild Card" doesn't really hit the rock bottom that would make it more than a series of sulks and wallops..”
by Nicolas Rapold [NY Times]

SUPREMACY :

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

BEAUTIFUL & TWISTED :

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