“..this is really a movie about the creative impulse and its tendency to make people nuts, a subject it explores with incessant and sometimes exasperating restlessness..”
3 of 4

“..there's so much going on in "Seven Psychopaths" in fact, that the movie finally bursts apart at the seams..”
by Ty Burr [Boston Globe]
“..the movie is genuinely humor-resistant. Any cult it develops will be chewing gum and wearing Halloween costumes..”
by Rex Reed [New York Observer]
3 of 4

“..sometimes these scenarios are better than what's happening in the "real" action on screen..”
by Peter Howell [Toronto Star]
“..small in stature but consistently entertaining..”
by Richard Corliss [TIME Magazine]
3.5 of 4

“..seven times more clever than most Hollywood comedies..”
by Claudia Puig [USA Today]
“..meta to the max, filled with clever jokes and observations that stick like barbs and deflated ones that land with a thud..”
by Manohla Dargis [New York Times]
4 of 5

“..may not be McDonagh's best film, but with all its crazy bells and whistles, it sure is an entertaining one..”
by Bill Goodykoontz [Arizona Republic]
3 of 4

“..it's crazy-killer fun..”
by Peter Travers [Rolling Stone]
4 of 5

“..delights in pulling the rug out from under the audience every seven minutes or so, but it does this pulling in such cerebrally and cinematically exciting ways that once you shake it off..”
by Glenn Kenny [MSN Movies]
2 of 4

“..are all fun to watch..”
by Mick LaSalle [San Francisco Chronicle]

LATEST REVIEWS

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]

MOMMY :

“..the same elements that have endeared or alienated viewers of Dolan's previous films are all here in Mommy..”
by Liam Lacey [Globe and Mail]

BLACK SEA :

“..Scoot McNairy is a terrifically spineless, whining mouthpiece for the adventurer who financed the journey, and Ben Mendelsohn is a terrifying underwater psycho. The whole thing adds up to a watery grave of claustrophobia-but that can be pretty terrifying..”
by Rex Reed [New York Observer]

SONG ONE :

“..Song One has its heart in the right place (on its sleeve)-it's just in desperate need of a few strong hooks..”
by David Ehrlich [Time Out New York]
