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 DROP :

“..it isn't as powerful as the previous Lehane-inspired movies, but it has slow-building traction and three terrifically controlled performances..”
by Lisa Kennedy [Denver Post]

SOMETHING WICKED :

“..instead of remaking Bradbury's tale, a semi horror film was derived from Shakespeare's quote - and has little to do with anything except the word Wicked.....”
by James M. Tate [Cultfilmfreak Cinema]

AT THE DEVIL'S DOOR :

“.."At the Devil's Door" doesn't piece together as the eerie, semi-apocalyptic tale it's meant to become..”
by Brian Orndorf [Blu-ray.com]

BIRD PEOPLE :

“..the new storyline offers some clever moments. But the whimsy isn't enough to warrant staying the night..”
by Jordan Hoffman [NY Daily News]

HONEYMOON :

“..a steady dose of newlywed nightmare..”
by Robert Abele [LA Times]

TAKE ME TO THE RIVER :

“..you can't help but feel all the palpable joy is eliding some darker realities that would lend the copious musical performances a deeper resonance..”
by Keith Uhlich [Time Out New York]

FINDING FANNY :

“..an original story that is dark, whimsical, witty and irreverent..”
by Priya Joshi [Digital Spy]

MINE GAMES :

“..Mine Games never fully embellishes the idea. Once it finally begins to throw the plot into high gear, it's too little too late. It feels like it's simply retreading old material in a new environment..”
by Patrick Cooper [Bloody Disgusting]

THE GUEST :

“..it's an effectively bloody, breakneck ride, given an extra coat of alluring gloss by the John Carpenter-influenced 1980s styling that is currently all the rage in the genre..”
by Guy Lodge [Time Out London]

20,000 DAYS ON EARTH :

“..a highly polished, carefully constructed docu-fiction hybrid..”
by John Semley [Slant Magazine]
