1 of 5

“..this largely laugh-free romp doesn't plumb quite the depths that the notorious Sex Lives of the Potato Men did, but it comes perilously close..”
by David Aldridge [Radio Times]
“..more likely to offend auds for borderline-racist stereotyping than for smuttiness..”
by Leslie Felperin [Variety]
2 of 5

“..fails miserably..”
by David Edwards [Daily Mirror]

“..duly resolved with the most stiff and listless gags this side of the morgue..”
by Xan Brooks [The Guardian]

“..a mediocre screenplay doesn't help and only a few moments work as well as they might..”

HORNS :

“..there are a couple of decent movies somewhere inside "Horns." But here's the real sin - Aja has no idea in hell of what they are..”
by Stephen Whitty [Newark Star-Ledger]

MISSIONARY :

“..this lean thriller deftly shows how the fervency needed to wholly embrace any one belief or institution can, if unchecked, yield dire consequences..”
by Gary Goldstein [LA Times]

HIT BY LIGHTNING :

“..a dimwitted romcom..”
by Elizabeth Weitzman [NY Daily News]

ABCS OF DEATH 2 :

“..a trashy, unapologetically raunchy genre primer..”
by Peter Debruge [Variety]

BEFORE I GO TO SLEEP :

“..there are twists aplenty but not sufficient tension or sustained suspense to cover up the fissures that widen as the movie progresses. Although the story is all about memory, the film itself is forgettable..”
by James Berardinelli [ReelViews]

NIGHTCRAWLER :

“.."Taxi Driver" meets "Network" in this dark satire-thriller. Gyllenhaal is terrific, while Russo may have just launched a comeback..”
by Rafer Guzman [Newsday]

23 BLAST :

“..its better-known cast members-like Stephen Lang, who plays Travis' coach-don't thoroughly embarrass themselves, mostly because the pokey script and Baker's ambition-free direction don't give them much opportunity to..”
by Ignatiy Vishnevetsky [A.V. Club]

MR. DYNAMITE: THE RISE OF JAMES BROWN :

“..Mr. Dynamite may finally be Gibney's most psychologically and socially perceptive film to date..”
by Chris Cabin [Slant Magazine]

LOW DOWN :

“..the movie takes on a haunting dimension, even while actively dodging biopic cliches and falling into long lulls where not much happens. Fanning manages to bring soulfulness to a character who mostly reacts to others..”
by Drew Taylor [Time Out New York]

GLEN CAMPBELL: I'LL BE ME :

“..the movie might stir that in you, too..”
by Alan Scherstuhl [Village Voice]
