by Rex Reed [New York Observer]

by James Berardinelli [ReelViews]
Review rate : D-

by Laremy Legel [Film.com]

“..title character could be read as a parody of today‚Äôs liberated young woman..”
by Kyle Smith [New York Post]
“..this might sound like either a grim cautionary tale or a prurient adventure in exploitation..”
by A.O. Scott [New York Times]
2 of 5

“..there's really nothing, shameful or otherwise, to see in this pretentious and empty fairy tale..”
by Kathleen Murphy [MSN Movies]
“..the film's frustratingly elliptical style and lack of character insight give it a distinctly first-draft feel..”
by Peter Debruge [Variety]
“..the film remains uninvolving, its glacial pacing further slowed by exceedingly sparing camera movement, resulting in a look that's neither sensual nor unsettling..”
by David Rooney [Hollywood Reporter]
“..no fairy tale; it's stark, dispassionate and noticeably short on happily ever afters..”
“..never burrows into the brain, and its tenuous provocations fizzle out quickly..”
by Melissa Anderson [Village Voice]
“..isn't actually based on a fairy tale but definitely has the compelling undertow of one..”
by Andrew O'Hehir [Salon.com]

LATEST REVIEWS

SELMA :

“..one of the most powerful films of the year..”
by Chris Nashawaty [Entertainment Weekly]

AMERICAN SNIPER :

“..a solidly-staged but unexceptional picture, filled with overly familiar dramatic situations and a surprisingly blindered view of the world around its central character..”
by Drew McWeeny [HitFix]

ASK ME ANYTHING :

“..Ask Me Anything is a head above the glut of similarly themed and routinely rashly..”
by Nicholas Bell [Ioncinema]

BIG EYES :

“..despite its sharp feminist sting, Big Eyes never loses its light touch..”
by Chris Nashawaty [Entertainment Weekly]

PK :

“..PK movie is all that you anticipated, a paisa-vasool entertaining movie that will enthrall you for sure..”
by Priyanka Prasad [Filmibeat]

INTO THE WOODS :

“..will entertain youth audiences yet contains enough sly humor and narrative complexity to keep adults engaged..”
by David Rooney [Hollywood Reporter]

NIGHT AT THE MUSEUM: SECRET OF THE TOMB :

“..there's a serenity to museum visits, especially if it's a place you know and love. "Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb," amazingly, recaptures that feeling in big-studio franchise form..”
by Joe Neumaier [NY Daily News]

ELF: BUDDY'S MUSICAL CHRISTMAS :

“.."Elf" offers some slight, warmed over charms, but viewers would be better off catching one of the umpteen TV showings of the original "Elf" movie..”
by Rob Owen [Pittsburgh Post-Gazette]

THE INTERVIEW :

“..wild and wildly uneven..”
by Todd McCarthy [Hollywood Reporter]

TWO DAYS, ONE NIGHT :

“..it's a rare film of unforced simplicity that will stick with you for a long time. And it's honest right to its perfectly judged ending..”
by Kim Newman [Empire Online]
