“..Stoker is a coming-of-age one, the kind you could imagine Neil Gaiman reading to his children. She speaks in voiceover about her "longing to be rescued, to be completed," yet she's slow to allow other people into her life or even to touch her..”
by Peter Howell [Toronto Star]

“..Park Chan-wook makes an eye-catching English-language debut with his outrageous quasi-remake..”
by Xan Brooks [The Guardian]

“..is disjointed and hollow, its surreal style devoid of substance..”
by Claudia Puig [USA Today]

“..Cronies is funny and moving in equal doses, a humane film about a handful of guys just trying to get by on the hands they've been dealt by life..”
by Dominick Mayer [Consequence of Sound]

JAMES WHITE :

“..thanks to a strong visual eye and a terrific cast, this anguished, but intimate coming of age tale tends to (mostly) recompense for some of the darker and more despondent elements that will test some resolves..”
by Rodrigo Perez [The Playlist]

THE BRONZE :

“..simply by not getting the balance right, "The Bronze" seems to be lucky to have medaled at all..”
by Drew McWeeny [HitFix]

A LITTLE GAME :

“..a serviceable family film that is hardly a worthy rival for "Searching for Bobby Fischer"..”
by Ben Kenigsberg [NY Times]
