“..this version does have dwarves, and they're played by non-dwarf actors who've been reduced by special effects..”
by Glenn Kenny [MSN Movies]
3 of 5

“..this revisionist fairy tale does not give us is a passionate love - its kisses are as chaste as the snow is white..”
by Betsy Sharkey [Los Angeles Times]
“..they summon up a sumptuously dark and revisionist kingdom that's closer to "Game of Thrones" than the Brothers Grimm..”
by Joe Morgenstern [Wall Street Journal]
“..there's no sense of narrative priority-the filmmakers can't see the Dark Forest for the trees..”
by Nick Pinkerton [Village Voice]

“..he film has the DNA of a blockbuster and the soul of a haunting folk tale. It is as dangerous, dark, intelligent and beautiful as its wraithlike villainess..”
by Colin Covert [Minneapolis Star Tribune]

by Roger Moore [Movienation]

BLACK OR WHITE :

“..Black or White is an uncommonly brave film but it loses its gumption at the end..”

SUPREMACY :

BEAUTIFUL & TWISTED :

“..a lurid yet compelling docudrama..”
by Hal Boedeker [Orlando Sentinel]
