2 of 4

“..this is very much a movie about writing, and despite the sincerity of the dialogue, the style does not fit a cinematic format..”
by Rex Reed [New York Observer]
“..this is the first bad movie that has ever made me call for a sequel-to get it all right..”
by David Edelstein [New York Magazine]
“..the film lurches from one episode to the next in haphazard, drunken fashion..”
by Andrew O'Hehir [Salon.com]
Review rate : B-

“..may be the longest film ever made about the moral education of a selfish, annoying princes..”
by Owen Gleiberman [Entertainment Weekly]
“..its theme brought home by Berlin's character in a climactic argument..”
by Sheri Linden [Hollywood Reporter]
“..it would be easy to accept the drama's lumpy, lurching structure if these threads came together in an honest, insightful fashion..”
by Justin Chang [Variety]
“..human drama looks and sounds like-a distanced but often car-crash compelling portrait of a teen as an unfinished being..”
by Karina Longworth [Village Voice]

LATEST REVIEWS

SHAUN THE SHEEP :

“..this is the kind of stuff that has been, and will be, funny forever - built on eternal human fears and foibles that, whatever your age, make complete and hilarious sense..”
by Robbie Collin [Daily Telegraph]

THE END OF THE TOUR :

“..The End Of The Tour largely remains a two-man show, expertly approximating the vagaries of actual conversation-the starts and stops that occur when two strangers are getting to know each other, one sentence at a time..”
by A.A. Dowd [A.V. Club]

NORTHMEN: A VIKING SAGA :

“..Bastian Zach and Matthias Bauer actually have to come up with something other than people shooting, stabbing and bludgeoning each other to death. If only they had put this kind of effort into creating characters worth caring about in the first place..”
by Martin Tsai [LA Times]

JENNY'S WEDDING :

“..ultimately, it becomes more a film about Jenny's parents as they learn to embrace and understand her..”
by Katie Walsh [LA Times]

STATEN ISLAND SUMMER :

“..frustratingly, the movie is plenty likable when it's not trying to show off its wistfulness. As a reader of the fake news, Jost should know that sometimes silly jokes are their own reward..”
by Jesse Hassenger [A.V. Club]

A LEGO BRICKUMENTARY :

“..there isn't much the viewer won't be able to answer about Legos by the end of "A Lego Brickumentary," except, perhaps, why he or she has just watched a 90-minute commercial for Legos..”
by John Anderson [Newsday]

BEST OF ENEMIES :

“..a timely but unsatisfying exploration of a series of exchanges between conservative Buckley and liberal Vidal makes its case too little and too late..”
by Inkoo Kang [The Wrap]

EXTINCTION :

“..if only they had more screen time. The film's core problems: too little zombie and too much plot..”
by Katherine Pushkar [NY Daily News]

THE SEVENTH DWARF :

“..short on charm and utterly devoid of magic..”
by Justin Chang [Variety]

6 WAYS TO DIE :

“.."6 WAYS to Die" is a revenge story told backwards. It's like "Memento," except that movie was fantastic. "6 Ways" is the opposite. The cheesy dialogue is written in slogans and the actors speak as slowly as possible..”
by Eddie Goldberger [NY Daily News]
