“..what follows is a Jonestown-like massacre, but the aim and the conceit distract from director Ti West's execution..”
by Joe Neumaier [New York Daily News]
“..as with all of West's work this is a good-looking, well acted film shot through with moments of real power, but its conventionality is troubling..”

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

A WALK IN THE WOODS :

“..A Walk in the Woods is a jolly good time, sparking dozens of chuckles and a few strong laughs. Nothing special cinematically, it still provides a welcome showcase for wonderful star..”

by Tom Russo [Boston Globe]

ZIPPER :

“..on all counts, "Zipper" comes up short..”

by Sara Stewart [New York Post]

WHEN ANIMALS DREAM :

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

POD :

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]
