4.5 of 5

“..ultimately, think of the movie as a puzzle box in which all the pieces fit together wonderfully well. Once you step back and take a look at how it's all put together, you have to marvel at how cleverly constructed the whole thing is..”
by Randy Cordova [Arizona Republic]
“..Mr. Soderbergh... cleverly evokes the style of these ubiquitous drug advertisements in the movie itself..”
by A.O. Scott [New York Times]
3.5 of 4

“..it's a hell of a thriller, twisty, terrific and packed with surprises you don't see coming..”
by Peter Travers [Rolling Stone]
3 of 4

“..a workmanlike thriller that's better than the time of year when it's being released. It's not Soderbergh at his best but it never lost my attention..”
by James Berardinelli [ReelViews]
4 of 5

“..a nice farewell: fun and smart, with cutting satire and blunt shocks..”
by James Rocchi [MSN Movies]
Review rate : A-

“..a film that won't sit still. It's more than "just when you think you know what's happening, THIS happens." This is a rare case of the very genre of the film we're dealing with transforming without warning..”
by Jordan Hoffman [Film.com]
3 of 4

“..a canny, cunning big idea thriller in a minor key, an engrossing zeitgeist whodunit about Wall Street, Big Pharma, prescription drugs and the power we give psychiatry and psychologists..”
by Roger Moore [Movie Nation]

AFFLUENZA :

“..nothing is revealing or surprising in this horse-beating tale of spiritual poverty among the extremely wealthy..”

RAGE :

“..but this one is funless and lackluster, a grinding mess of pulp cliches with dull characters, perfunctory violence and dim plotting..”
by Kyle Smith [New York Post]

ROAD TO PALOMA :

“..this film is numbingly dull, an outlaw-on-the-run saga as laconic and slow-moving as its fierce, hirsute protagonist..”
by Sam Weisberg [Village Voice]

LAND HO! :

“..the characters reorder their lives that makes Land Ho! seem both a little slight and a little precious..”
by Ben Kenigsberg [AV Club]

BOYHOOD :

“..Boyhood is a masterpiece..”
by Simon Reynolds [Digital Spy]

PLANES: FIRE & RESCUE :

by Drew Taylor [The Playlist]

SCHOOL DANCE :

“..this witless comedy is equal opportunity offensive..”
by Frank Scheck [Hollywood Reporter]

by Justin Chang [Variety]
