“..there's nothing at stake, as the characters have given up on themselves before the film has begun, and all that remains is a fatalist reconfiguration..”
by Chuck Bowen [Slant Magazine]
1 of 5

“..the pacing is so slow, the characters so disconnected and the story so depressing that all we get is an escapist romance that fails on both counts..”
by Elizabeth Weitzman [NY Daily News]
“..the film presumably is trying to end with the promise of a brighter future for all involved, but reality isn't nearly that simple..”
by Neil Genzlinger [NY Times]
“..even at its well-meaning best, Refuge is listless..”
by Sam Weisberg [Village Voice]

“..it is supremely intelligent and moving and Rampling and Courtenay are superb..”
by Peter Bradshaw [The Guardian]

A WALK IN THE WOODS :

WHEN ANIMALS DREAM :

“..rich with tone but otherwise lacking bite..”

by Heather Wixson [Dailydead]

#LUCKY NUMBER :

“..obviously "#Lucky Number" will not appeal to everyone but for those that do find it entertaining, they will not be disappointed..”
by James McDonald [Irish Film Critic]

Z FOR ZACHARIAH :

“..the dramatic tension considerably less, in a movie that feels stranded somewhere between serious artistic ambition and the dystopian franchise-building of "The Hunger Games," "Divergent," et al..”
by Scott Foundas [Variety]
