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 :

LAST WEEKEND :

“..the most striking moments in Last Weekend are not the expected ones..”

THE CONGRESS :

“..Ari Folman, however, is a filmmaker who, almost to a fault is, determined to make movies in his own inimitable way..”
