3 of 4

“..unflinching yet poignant, Sarah's Key asks just how deeply you want to delve into your past..”
by Scott Bowles [USA Today]
“..the film looks away for you, by cutting to the present-day story and going limp, as life-and-death drama is replaced by life as we know it..”
by Rachel Saltz [NY Times]
1.5 of 4

“..is in no way a serious exploration of French complicity in the Holocaust. It simply leverages history's greatest outrage to turn it into a little detective/sob story through which Thomas drifts..”
by Kyle Smith [New York Post]
“..filmmakers working in a language not their own, these scenes feel like they're not just in another tongue, they're in another movie..”
by Kenneth Turan [LA Times]
“..doesn't seriously overplay the material. Aside from Max Richter's mawkish score and Aidan Quinn's blustery performance, the movie's tone is poised..”
by Mark Jenkins [npr.org]

DOPE :

“..a crowd-pleaser from start to finish..”
by Boyd van Hoeij [Hollywood Reporter]

STRANGERLAND :

“..Strangerland is ruined by the preciousness of its ideas..”
by Tim Grierson [Screen Daily]

TEN THOUSAND SAINTS :

“..it's a film that clearly has nothing but compassion for the troubled teens at the center of it, and well-worth checking out..”
by Chris Bumbray [Joblo]

JAMES WHITE :

“..thanks to a strong visual eye and a terrific cast, this anguished, but intimate coming of age tale tends to (mostly) recompense for some of the darker and more despondent elements that will test some resolves..”
by Rodrigo Perez [The Playlist]

THE BRONZE :

“..simply by not getting the balance right, "The Bronze" seems to be lucky to have medaled at all..”
by Drew McWeeny [HitFix]

A LITTLE GAME :

“..a serviceable family film that is hardly a worthy rival for "Searching for Bobby Fischer"..”
by Ben Kenigsberg [NY Times]

MORTDECAI :

“..though the books are brilliant, Depp's attempt to make his own Terry-Thomas movie feels tired and more than a little tortured..”
by Ali Plumb [Empire Online]

THE BOY NEXT DOOR :

“..it's not much fun at all, but at least it's over..”
by Moira MacDonald [Seattle Times]

STRANGE MAGIC :

“..the new animated musical fairy tale from the mind and the mixtape of George Lucas, is indeed strange. What's missing is the magic..”
by Betsy Sharkey [LA Times]

CAKE :

“..Patrick Tobin's infuriatingly coy script... turning the film into a morbid guessing game..”
by Joshua Rothkopf [Time Out New York]
