3 of 5

“..while the film is a success on its own art house exploitation terms, it can't help but feel like a missed opportunity. The freakin' American dream is an awful lot harder, sleazier and stranger than this..”
by Robbie Collin [Daily Telegraph]
4 of 5

“..unfolds as a fever dream of teenage kicks, a high-concept heist movie with mescal in the fuel tank..”
by Xan Brooks [The Guardian]
“..stylish but shallow take on late-teen malaise run riot..”
by David Rooney [Hollywood Reporter]
2 of 4

“..is pretty good trash, morally speaking. But it's not trashily made..”
by Derek Malcolm [London Evening Standard]
“..attractively fizzy pic may be a shock to the system for fans of teen queens Selena Gomez and Vanessa Hudgens, but remains pretty toothless titillation by its writer-helmer's standards..”
by Guy Lodge [Variety]
Review rate : B

THE CONGRESS :

“..Ari Folman, however, is a filmmaker who, almost to a fault is, determined to make movies in his own inimitable way..”
by Jordan Hoffman [Film.com]

LUCKY IN LOVE :

“..is the typical Hallmark Channel movie with a light-hearted story, some beautiful people and some OK acting..”
by [Movieman's Guide to the Movies]

THE NOVEMBER MAN :

“..overly familiar spy film serves its star well..”
by John DeFore [Hollywood Reporter]

PREDESTINATION :

“..sibling filmmakers Peter and Michael Spierig offer a skillful and atmospheric adaptation of Robert A. Heinlein's 1960 short story " - All You Zombies - ," and if it's better in the intimate early stages than in the more grandiose later passages..”
by Justin Chang [Variety]

FELONY :

“..thanks to Saville's tightly controlled direction and a superlative cast, the mere exchange of glances builds as much suspense as the kinetic action sequence that opens the pic..”
by Ronnie Scheib [Variety]

THE PRINCE :

“..the action sequences are competently directed, but exhibit virtually no flair or invention, as Patric simply stands there shooting at waves of anonymous henchmen until they all fall down..”
by Andrew Barker [Variety]

ANOTHER ME :

“..the ham-fisted script is incapable of a multilayered approach, while the helming and editing are at the level of mediocre TV..”
by Jay Weissberg [Variety]

by Sukanya Verma [rediff.com]

THE ONE I LOVE :

by Elizabeth Weitzman [NY Daily News]
