“..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]
3 of 5

LATEST REVIEWS

THE CROSSING 2 :

“..an inert follow-up that doesn't deliver enough visual or emotional payoff in its overdue yet short-lived shipwreck climax..”
by Maggie Lee [Variety]

SHAUN THE SHEEP :

“..this is the kind of stuff that has been, and will be, funny forever - built on eternal human fears and foibles that, whatever your age, make complete and hilarious sense..”
by Robbie Collin [Daily Telegraph]

THE END OF THE TOUR :

“..The End Of The Tour largely remains a two-man show, expertly approximating the vagaries of actual conversation-the starts and stops that occur when two strangers are getting to know each other, one sentence at a time..”
by A.A. Dowd [A.V. Club]

NORTHMEN: A VIKING SAGA :

“..Bastian Zach and Matthias Bauer actually have to come up with something other than people shooting, stabbing and bludgeoning each other to death. If only they had put this kind of effort into creating characters worth caring about in the first place..”
by Martin Tsai [LA Times]

JENNY'S WEDDING :

“..ultimately, it becomes more a film about Jenny's parents as they learn to embrace and understand her..”
by Katie Walsh [LA Times]

STATEN ISLAND SUMMER :

“..frustratingly, the movie is plenty likable when it's not trying to show off its wistfulness. As a reader of the fake news, Jost should know that sometimes silly jokes are their own reward..”
by Jesse Hassenger [A.V. Club]

A LEGO BRICKUMENTARY :

“..there isn't much the viewer won't be able to answer about Legos by the end of "A Lego Brickumentary," except, perhaps, why he or she has just watched a 90-minute commercial for Legos..”
by John Anderson [Newsday]

BEST OF ENEMIES :

“..a timely but unsatisfying exploration of a series of exchanges between conservative Buckley and liberal Vidal makes its case too little and too late..”
by Inkoo Kang [The Wrap]

EXTINCTION :

“..if only they had more screen time. The film's core problems: too little zombie and too much plot..”
by Katherine Pushkar [NY Daily News]

THE SEVENTH DWARF :

“..short on charm and utterly devoid of magic..”
by Justin Chang [Variety]
