THE LOFT :

“.."The Loft" is a stylish whodunit that struggles to stitch the label "Hitchcockian" right on the inner pocket..”
by Roger Moore [Movienation]

BLACK OR WHITE :

“..Black or White is an uncommonly brave film but it loses its gumption at the end..”
by James Berardinelli [ReelViews]

AMIRA & SAM :

“..nothing feels truly at stake, no matter how weighty the risks the characters face, but there are charming moments along the way..”
by Sheri Linden [LA Times]

SUBURBAN GOTHIC :

“..it's unsatisfying overall, trying too hard to look like it doesn't care..”
by Brian Orndorf [Blu-ray.com]

GIRLHOOD :

“..director Celine Sciamma explores a very different coming-of-age than in her 2011 film... with this vibrant portrait of a teenage girl..”
by Sara Stewart [New York Post]

WILD CARD :

“.."Wild Card" doesn't really hit the rock bottom that would make it more than a series of sulks and wallops..”
by Nicolas Rapold [NY Times]

SUPREMACY :

“..despite a vein-popping lead performance (and Ms. Olivieri’s touching take on the classic broken-down moll), "Supremacy" remains stubbornly uninvolving..”
by Jeannette Catsoulis [NY Times]

BACKSTREET BOYS: SHOW 'EM WHAT YOU'RE MADE OF :

THE DEVIL'S VIOLINIST :

“..while its themes border on the sensationalistic, the film lacks the sizzle, humor and wild imagination that Ken Russell brought to his similar classical music-themed cinematic excursions..”

BEAUTIFUL & TWISTED :

“..a lurid yet compelling docudrama..”
by Hal Boedeker [Orlando Sentinel]
