by Joe Morgenstern [Wall Street Journal]
“..what's ultimately wrong with On The Road is that the film envisions everyone Sal meets as nothing but fodder..”
by Linda Holmes [NPR]
Review rate : B+

“..this film ain't for everyone. My "consumer reports" side is urging me to say, again, nothing really happens in the movie..”
by Jordan Hoffman [Film.com]
“..there's room here for both Carax's daring and Salles's sensitive workmanship-even if, when the dust settles..”
by Jon Frosch [The Atlantic]
3 of 5

“..the movie's visual palette is gorgeous, with Eric Gautier's atmospheric camerawork signifying the book's parallels of rootlessness and discovery, solitude and solidarity..”
by Elizabeth Weitzman [New York Daily News]

LATEST REVIEWS

RIDE :

“..Hunt, who also wrote and directed, didn't take her own advice. There's not a surprise in this entire movie..”
by Katharine Pushkar [NY Daily News]

CAS & DYLAN :

“..Priestley shows a steady eye for detail in his first time as director, although he lets the film stray too much into TV territory..”
by Linda Barnard [Toronto Star]

ANY DAY :

“..built on a number of ludicrous contrivances, Any Day eventually pushes its disparate pieces together into a misguided and oddly unsettling storyline..”
by Kate Erbland [The Dissolve]

HYENA :

“..there's something interesting in the way he [Gerard Johnson] deliberately denies his characters and the viewers any reprieve..”
by Martin Tsai [LA Times]

WELCOME TO ME :

“..a dark comedy that succeeds on its own itchy terms..”
by John DeFore [Hollywood Reporter]

FAR FROM THE MADDING CROWD :

“..works on all levels. Foremost, it is brilliantly directed by Thomas Vinterberg..”
by Claudia Puig [USA Today]

CLEVELAND ABDUCTION :

“..involving violence, sexual assault, torture, and, above all, captivity, abduction stories are a catch-all for the women-in-peril narrative that is the core theme of so many Lifetime movies..”
by Molly Eichel [A.V. Club]

THE WATER DIVINER :

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

LITTLE BOY :

“..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..”
by Joe Neumaier [NY Daily News]
