4 of 4

“..as direct as a blood transfusion. It's a film of fact, remembrance and forgiveness, with no clear path. You just have to trust in Sarah Polley's steely determination and follow her relentless lens..”
by Peter Howell [Toronto Star]
“..a number of transparent virtues, including its humor and formal design, although its most admirable quality is the deep sense of personal ethics that frames Ms. Polley's filmmaking choices..”

SUPREMACY :

“..despite a vein-popping lead performance (and Ms. Olivieri‚Äôs touching take on the classic broken-down moll), "Supremacy" remains stubbornly uninvolving..”

by Hal Boedeker [Orlando Sentinel]
