Review rate : B-

“..worth a look for those who want to catch up with a family of soap people 30 years in the making..”
by Genevieve Valentine [A.V. Club]
“..this story has great potential, and perhaps should have been a two-night miniseries, rather than a quick TV movie..”
by Jerome Wetzel [Seat42f]
3 of 5

“..it's unbelievable, it's sick, and shockingly enough, it's entertaining as hell..”
by Susan Kamyab [Red Carpet Crash]
“.."Petals" is manic and sudsy, speeding through a treasure trove of sleazy plot twists like CliffsNotes on crack. No one's going to mistake this for high art, but as enjoyably trashy TV goes, "Petals" is more artful than it needs to be..”
by Geoff Berkshire [Variety]

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]
