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]

MALL :

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..”
