“..The Rover, a bleak and pointless exercise in pretentious existentialism by Australian director-writer-producer David Michod..”
by Rex Reed [New York Observer]
“..Michod's sophomore feature isn't exactly something we've never seen before, but it has a desolate beauty all its own..”
by Scott Foundas [Variety]
2.5 of 5

“..a dark, dreary and dull "Mad Max in Neutral" from director David Michod ("Animal Kingdom") that tries to pass off its blunt narrative and repetitiveness as some sort of style..”
by Jordan Hoffman [Film.com]

“..a sweet romantic comedy that is faith friendly..”
by Donna Rolfe [The Dove Foundation]

MALL :

by Billy Tatum [AXS]

DARK WAS THE NIGHT :

BIG DRIVER :

“..if you do enjoy the once in a while thriller, and like to see a story that pushes you to think, then Big Driver is for you..”

SUMMER OF BLOOD :

“..Summer of Blood tries very hard to be cool, but instead comes off as strained and aloof, with a number of satiric targets it could have aimed for but just bypasses altogether..”
by Drew Taylor [The Playlist]

THE CULTURE HIGH :

“..an amateurish hand is in the term-paper-like voice-over narration and the inclusion of underqualified talking heads..”
by Martin Tsai [LA Times]

RUDDERLESS :

“.."Rudderless" is a competent, well-acted melodrama, yet in scope and ambition it has the modest and serviceable scale of the small, not silver, screen..”
by Michael O'Sullivan [Washington Post]

YOUNG ONES :

“..unfortunately this film is equally dusty, with a mishmash of ideas and self-conscious execution..”
by Joe Neumaier [NY Daily News]

BIRDMAN :

“..Keaton's terrific, off-kilter performance is just one of several in this dizzying, high-energy movie. A must-see..”

by Gary Goldstein [LA Times]
