REVIEWS RATE:  Critics  Nothing's perfect, but it's worth seeing.    Readers  5 of 5 [Rate It]

“..unwinds a narrative thread that grows increasingly tattered and flimsy..”
by Sheri Linden [LA Times]
“..treats sketchy, moribund storytelling as divine inspiration..”
by Michelle Orange [Village Voice]
“..this offbeat effort proves more admirable for its ambition than anything else, as the uneasy mix of satire, allegory, grittiness and redemption never quite jells..”
by Dennis Harvey [Variety]
Review rate : C+

“..there's a vague streak running all the way through Sympathy For Delicious..”
by Sam Adams [AV Club]
“..it is a chaotic pile-up of half-baked concepts that suggests an intellectual mosh pit..”
by Stephen Holden [NY Times]
1.5 of 4

“..is not so much a hard-edged take on potentially sentimental material, but an odd mishmash that leads to some headscratchingly bizarre moments, while ultimately skirting incoherence of purpose..”
by Andrew Schenker [Slant Magazine]

MAPS TO THE STARS :

“..looks sharp but, in the end, comes off more like a prank than a coherent take on 21st century Hollywood, even if there are crumbs of truth and wit scattered throughout it..”
by Todd McCarthy [Hollywood Reporter]

ANIMAL :

“..Animal feels like every other standard creature feature..”
by Patrick Cooper [Bloody Disgusting]

HOT TUB TIME MACHINE 2 :

“..there are plenty of ways to spend your time and money, but "Hot Tub Time Machine 2" shouldn't be one of them..”
by Bill Goodykoontz [Arizona Republic]

WILD CANARIES :

“..in spite of the constant activity, there's not a whole lot going on, but it's still a fun place to visit..”
by Eric Kohn [indieWIRE]

ALL THE WILDERNESS :

“..in spite of the tatty "coming of age" familiarity, Johnson's vision seems fresh and vibrant..”
by Pete Vonder Haar [Village Voice]

DIGGING UP THE MARROW :

“..a playfully self-reflexive exercise whose endless in-jokes will best be appreciated by only the most ardent genre aficionados..”
by Frank Scheck [Hollywood Reporter]

KOBE BRYANT'S MUSE :

“..certainly timely, if also largely whitewashed - a star-approved, produced and guided tour that sacrifices editorial perspective for up-close-and-personal access..”
by Brian Lowry [Variety]

THE SECOND BEST EXOTIC MARIGOLD HOTEL :

“..busier but also blander and duller than its predecessor..”
by Leslie Felperin [Hollywood Reporter]

THE DUFF :

“..director Ari Sandel takes many pages from Hughes' playbook, but the results here are far less satisfying..”
by Steven Bryan [Examiner]

MCFARLAND, USA :

“..a feel-good movie that earns all those good feelings..”
by James Rocchi [The Wrap]
