REVIEWS RATE:  Critics  Not quite bad, but it's not recommended either.    Readers  5 of 5 [Rate It]

“..the film seems at odds with itself, trying to send a message while at the same time keeping it at arm's length from the audience..”
by Chris Pandolfi [Yahoo! Voices]
“..ratchets up the intensity with harsh lighting and self-conscious camera angles, so that more than a few melodramatic scenes are quite funny, intentionally or not..”
by Joe Leydon [Variety]
“..it's really just a cheap slasher flick with some talented actors masking the banality with clever dialogue and overwhelming intensity..”
by Witney Seibold [Crave Online]
1.5 of 4

“..it's a mortgage-crisis nightmare noir that could have been pulpy fun..”
by Steven Rea [Philadelphia Inquirer]
“..it gets points for keeping you in the dark as to what’s really going on until the very end..”
by Lucas Mangnum [Cinedelphia]
1 of 4

“..a film that doesn't realize its cliches are being exaggerated to the point of absurdity..”
by Nick Schager [Slant Magazine]

THE WATER DIVINER :

“..the overstuffed story feels bombastic and contrived..”
by Claudia Puig [USA Today]

“..though occasionally sticky sweet and not always subtle, it's also a smart and very moving story..”
by Rafer Guzman [Newsday]

THE FORGER :

“..a movie where the colors blur sloppily..”

BROTHERLY LOVE :

“..despite the blazing guns, this script is not so tough..”
by Farran Smith Nehme [New York Post]

BLACKBIRD :

“..it's such a quiet, simple moment in a movie full of more overwrought ones - including a spiritual "deliverance" - but it makes a lasting impression. "Blackbird" would have benefited from using that approach more, rather than saddling a compelling drama..”
by Stephanie Merry [Washington Post]

SEE YOU IN VALHALLA :

“..is as deadly as its funereal subject matter..”
by Michael O'Sullivan [Washington Post]

“..it's all very low stakes. We know how this is going to turn out. But it is a pleasure watching Kroll and Byrne to the end..”
by Molly Eichel [Philadelphia Inquirer]

JUST BEFORE I GO :

“..Courteney Cox's misbegotten project is a comedy-drama that, to Cox's credit, doesn't feel at all like a TV sitcom..”
by Joe Neumaier [NY Daily News]

MISERY LOVES COMEDY :

“..the funny folks in actor Kevin Pollak's well-structured doc can actually break down what they do..”
