LATEST REVIEWS

CAROL :

“..it is a creamily sensuous, richly observed piece of work, handsomely detailed and furnished..”
by Peter Bradshaw [The Guardian]

YOUTH :

“..Youth has a wan eloquence and elegance, though freighted with sentimentality and a strangely unearned and uninteresting macho-geriatric regret for lost time, lost film projects, lost love..”
by Peter Bradshaw [The Guardian]

AREA 51 :

“..there's no creative leap to enjoy and little filmmaking finesse to study..”
by Brian Orndorf [Blu-ray.com]

CHILDLESS :

“..it's an interesting idea - a series of monologues to camera, interspliced with home video..”
by Cara McGuigan [The Skinny]

THE SURFACE :

“..this is the sort of film where you enjoy the cast even though the running time becomes a bit of a snore..”
by Colin Covert [Minneapolis Star Tribune]

EVERY SECRET THING :

“..unfortunately, there's really nothing fresh or gripping there. It's all dull, procedural police work..”
by Stephen Whitty [Newark Star-Ledger]

THE CONNECTION :

“..Jimenez's sprawling cat-and-mouse thriller loses momentum and focus in the homestretch, but until then its '70s sun-and-sin-on-the-Cote d'Azur vibe is electric...”
by Chris Nashawaty [Entertainment Weekly]

ABSOLUTION :

“.."Absolution" isn't complete, highlighting a forgettable villain and expendable supporting characters, but I supposed it's about as close to a coherent endeavor as Seagal is willing to make these days..”
by Brian Orndorf [Blu-ray.com]

POUND OF FLESH :

“..frankly, Pound Of Flesh could have used more of Crank's everything-and-the-kitchen-sink silliness..”
by Adam Nayman [A.V. Club]

TIME LAPSE :

“..the movie plays its stupidity straight, with crude first-draft dialogue ("He's keeping the photos for safekeeping") delivered via soap-level performances..”
by Jesse Hassenger [A.V. Club]
