LATEST REVIEWS

GONE GIRL :

“..expertly crafted entertainment, but falls short of Fincher's finest..”
by Todd McCarthy [Hollywood Reporter]

AUTUMN BLOOD :

“.."Autumn Blood" is such a film, an odd, unpleasant 2011 thriller..”
by Roger Moore [Movie Nation]

THIS IS WHERE I LEAVE YOU :

“.."This Is Where I Leave You" leaves them all to their own devices. If they had a reunion free of this overwritten and clunkily directed movie, that would be worth going to..”
by Joe Neumaier [NY Daily News]

KEEP ON KEEPIN' ON :

“..intimate and affectionate..”
by Sheri Linden [LA Times]

FORT BLISS :

“..writer-director Claudia Myers presents us with an unflinching and complex character study of an imperfect woman juggling motherhood..”
by Martin Tsai [LA Times]

THE SCRIBBLER :

“..the script that Dan Schaffer adapted from his graphic novel can't seem to find a credible dimensionality for his story or characters..”
by Gary Goldstein [LA Times]

HECTOR AND THE SEARCH FOR HAPPINESS :

“..even with appearances by such dependable performers as Toni Collette, Stellan Skarsgard, Christopher Plummer and Jean Reno, the interminable "Hector and the Search for Happiness" will most likely inspire audiences to search for the exit door..”
by Lou Lumenick [New York Post]

DR. CABBIE :

“..it does so in a cheeky and charming way and, although Dr. Cabbie is clunky in places, it mostly works..”
by Bruce DeMara [Toronto Star]

TUSK :

“..it's watchable, fun, sick, sad and has to be seen to be believed..”
by Kevin C. Johnson [St. Louis Post-Dispatch]

RECLAIM :

“..a truly bonkers Z-grade thriller..”
by Drew Hunt [Slant Magazine]
