REVIEWS RATE:  Critics  Go! Watch this movie. You'll regret if not seeing it.    Readers  4 of 5 [Rate It]

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]

LATEST REVIEWS

RIDE :

“..Hunt, who also wrote and directed, didn't take her own advice. There's not a surprise in this entire movie..”
by Katharine Pushkar [NY Daily News]

CAS & DYLAN :

“..Priestley shows a steady eye for detail in his first time as director, although he lets the film stray too much into TV territory..”
by Linda Barnard [Toronto Star]

ANY DAY :

“..built on a number of ludicrous contrivances, Any Day eventually pushes its disparate pieces together into a misguided and oddly unsettling storyline..”
by Kate Erbland [The Dissolve]

HYENA :

“..there's something interesting in the way he [Gerard Johnson] deliberately denies his characters and the viewers any reprieve..”
by Martin Tsai [LA Times]

WELCOME TO ME :

“..a dark comedy that succeeds on its own itchy terms..”
by John DeFore [Hollywood Reporter]

FAR FROM THE MADDING CROWD :

“..works on all levels. Foremost, it is brilliantly directed by Thomas Vinterberg..”
by Claudia Puig [USA Today]

CLEVELAND ABDUCTION :

“..involving violence, sexual assault, torture, and, above all, captivity, abduction stories are a catch-all for the women-in-peril narrative that is the core theme of so many Lifetime movies..”
by Molly Eichel [A.V. Club]

THE WATER DIVINER :

“..the overstuffed story feels bombastic and contrived..”
by Claudia Puig [USA Today]

LITTLE BOY :

“..though occasionally sticky sweet and not always subtle, it's also a smart and very moving story..”
by Rafer Guzman [Newsday]

THE FORGER :

“..a movie where the colors blur sloppily..”
by Joe Neumaier [NY Daily News]
