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]

THE WATER DIVINER :

“..the overstuffed story feels bombastic and contrived..”
by Claudia Puig [USA Today]

LITTLE BOY :

“..though occasionally sticky sweet and not always subtle, it's also a smart and very moving story..”
by Rafer Guzman [Newsday]

THE FORGER :

“..a movie where the colors blur sloppily..”
by Joe Neumaier [NY Daily News]

AFTER THE BALL :

“.."After the Ball" is a winning if predictable fable..”

BROTHERLY LOVE :

“..despite the blazing guns, this script is not so tough..”
by Farran Smith Nehme [New York Post]

BLACKBIRD :

“..it's such a quiet, simple moment in a movie full of more overwrought ones - including a spiritual "deliverance" - but it makes a lasting impression. "Blackbird" would have benefited from using that approach more, rather than saddling a compelling drama..”
by Stephanie Merry [Washington Post]

SEE YOU IN VALHALLA :

“..is as deadly as its funereal subject matter..”
by Michael O'Sullivan [Washington Post]

ADULT BEGINNERS :

“..it's all very low stakes. We know how this is going to turn out. But it is a pleasure watching Kroll and Byrne to the end..”
by Molly Eichel [Philadelphia Inquirer]

JUST BEFORE I GO :

“..Courteney Cox's misbegotten project is a comedy-drama that, to Cox's credit, doesn't feel at all like a TV sitcom..”
by Joe Neumaier [NY Daily News]

MISERY LOVES COMEDY :

“..the funny folks in actor Kevin Pollak's well-structured doc can actually break down what they do..”
by Joe Neumaier [NY Daily News]
