“..sound as if it's one of those movies where Hollywood is meant to be held under the microscope for its potential exploitation of real-life tragedy for the sake of profit, which, thankfully, it isn't..”
by Chuck Bowen [Slant Magazine]
3 of 4

“..part of the pleasure of the film is trying to parse the reality from the fiction as Hellman weaves everything sinuously together..”
by Jason Heck [Kansas City Star]
“..combining an almost quaint self-reflexiveness with state-of-the-art digital filmmaking..”
by Nick Pinkerton [Village Voice]

“..a slippery near-masterwork that turns his realist sensibilities in on themselves to depict fractured, imagined realities, a film within a film and a nightmare inside a conjured dream..”

RAGE :

“..but this one is funless and lackluster, a grinding mess of pulp cliches with dull characters, perfunctory violence and dim plotting..”

ROAD TO PALOMA :

“..this film is numbingly dull, an outlaw-on-the-run saga as laconic and slow-moving as its fierce, hirsute protagonist..”
by Sam Weisberg [Village Voice]

by Ben Kenigsberg [AV Club]

BOYHOOD :

“..Boyhood is a masterpiece..”
by Simon Reynolds [Digital Spy]

PLANES: FIRE & RESCUE :

by Drew Taylor [The Playlist]

SCHOOL DANCE :

“..this witless comedy is equal opportunity offensive..”
by Frank Scheck [Hollywood Reporter]

“..an underwhelming survival thriller..”
by Justin Chang [Variety]
