“..there's nothing inherently flawed about this nomadic and potentially life-affirming narrative, but Rosenbaum manages to instill every moment on the road with a sense of shrill conventionality..”
by Glenn Heath Jr. [Slant Magazine]
“..presents artistic self-destruction with the solemnity of a movie that has invented a spanking-new genre..”
by Jeannette Catsoulis [NY Times]
1.5 of 5

“..is so shamelessly cliche, so captivated by nostalgia that one can mistake the film's ignorance for well-intentioned earnestness -- a Dewey Cox story without all the humorous self-reflexivity..”
by Sam Kressner [Filmcritic.com]
“..is 10 tracks of cliches, dutifully trading in drugs, daddy issues, attempted suicide, gunfights, hotel trashings, regret, artistic and romantic jealousy, betrayal, ecstasy, and tragedy..”
by Nick Schager [Village Voice]
“..a limp piece of fan fiction about a fictional rock band's heyday and decline..”
by John DeFore [Hollywood Reporter]

MAPS TO THE STARS :

“..looks sharp but, in the end, comes off more like a prank than a coherent take on 21st century Hollywood, even if there are crumbs of truth and wit scattered throughout it..”
by Todd McCarthy [Hollywood Reporter]

ANIMAL :

“..Animal feels like every other standard creature feature..”
by Patrick Cooper [Bloody Disgusting]

HOT TUB TIME MACHINE 2 :

“..there are plenty of ways to spend your time and money, but "Hot Tub Time Machine 2" shouldn't be one of them..”
by Bill Goodykoontz [Arizona Republic]

WILD CANARIES :

“..in spite of the constant activity, there's not a whole lot going on, but it's still a fun place to visit..”
by Eric Kohn [indieWIRE]

ALL THE WILDERNESS :

“..in spite of the tatty "coming of age" familiarity, Johnson's vision seems fresh and vibrant..”
by Pete Vonder Haar [Village Voice]

DIGGING UP THE MARROW :

“..a playfully self-reflexive exercise whose endless in-jokes will best be appreciated by only the most ardent genre aficionados..”
by Frank Scheck [Hollywood Reporter]

KOBE BRYANT'S MUSE :

“..certainly timely, if also largely whitewashed - a star-approved, produced and guided tour that sacrifices editorial perspective for up-close-and-personal access..”
by Brian Lowry [Variety]

THE SECOND BEST EXOTIC MARIGOLD HOTEL :

“..busier but also blander and duller than its predecessor..”
by Leslie Felperin [Hollywood Reporter]

THE DUFF :

“..director Ari Sandel takes many pages from Hughes' playbook, but the results here are far less satisfying..”
by Steven Bryan [Examiner]

MCFARLAND, USA :

“..a feel-good movie that earns all those good feelings..”
by James Rocchi [The Wrap]
