“..ultimately the in-your-face style and confusing story stop the emotions from getting truly under your skin..”
by Amber Wilkinson [Eye for Film]
Review rate : C+

“..the film spins out of control, careening between convoluted subplots, with the emotional pitch of the piece swinging too wildly..”
by Betsy Sharkey [Los Angeles Times]
3.5 of 5

“..the film is stronger as a result..”
by Shaun Munro [What Culture]
3 of 5

by Rich Cline [Shadows on the Wall]

by Glenn Heath Jr. [Slant Magazine]

by Stephen Saito [Premiere Magazine]

LATEST REVIEWS

23 BLAST :

“..its better-known cast members-like Stephen Lang, who plays Travis' coach-don't thoroughly embarrass themselves, mostly because the pokey script and Baker's ambition-free direction don't give them much opportunity to..”
by Ignatiy Vishnevetsky [A.V. Club]

MR. DYNAMITE: THE RISE OF JAMES BROWN :

“..Mr. Dynamite may finally be Gibney's most psychologically and socially perceptive film to date..”
by Chris Cabin [Slant Magazine]

LOW DOWN :

“..the movie takes on a haunting dimension, even while actively dodging biopic cliches and falling into long lulls where not much happens. Fanning manages to bring soulfulness to a character who mostly reacts to others..”
by Drew Taylor [Time Out New York]

GLEN CAMPBELL: I'LL BE ME :

“..the movie might stir that in you, too..”
by Alan Scherstuhl [Village Voice]

HAPPY NEW YEAR :

“..the cast pulls off their acts well; and leave you with some feel-good moments..”
by Madhureeta Mukherjee [Time of India]

FORCE MAJEURE :

“..this stylish film has a nerve-cinching grip that makes it more alarming than most horror flicks..”
by Kyle Smith [New York Post]

THE GREAT INVISIBLE :

“..a powerful documentary..”
by John DeFore [Hollywood Reporter]

GOODBYE TO LANGUAGE :

“..a characteristically vigorous, playful..”
by Scott Foundas [Variety]

STONEHEARST ASYLUM :

“..a Victoria-era psychological thriller with some good twisty..”
by Betsy Sharkey [LA Times]

WHITE BIRD IN A BLIZZARD :

“..clunky, ugly and dull mash-up of a mystery about a missing housewife..”
by Lou Lumenick [New York Post]
