3 of 5

“..good on you, polar bears, and kudos to the cinematic expertise that captures them, especially underwater..”
by David DeWitt [New York Times]
“..compared with the pizzazz of abundant deep-sea exotica that MacGillivray and Ohlund explored in such films as Coral Reef Adventure, the Arctic has a spare, stark beauty..”
by Sheri Linden [Hollywood Reporter]
“..as always, somewhat overwhelming -- just the thing to help put across the astonishing grandeur of the arctic region..”
by Liz Braun [Jam! Movies]
“..arguably a good lesson for kids about preserving our environment, To the Arctic is definitely a threat to our equally endangered good taste..”
by Nick Pinkerton [Village Voice]

“..a children's choir sings and a graphic of the movie title explodes into ice shards to heighten the dramatic impact..”
by Jennie Punter [Globe and Mail]

LATEST REVIEWS

LIFE OF CRIME :

“..nothing about Life of Crime is going to linger in memory, save the unassuming way Leonard devoted himself to character and story mechanics..”
by Joshua Rothkopf [Time Out New York]

THE DAMNED :

“..is The Damned scary? Yes, a bit..”
by Ernest Hardy [Village Voice]

JAMIE MARKS IS DEAD :

“..the film uses its phantasmagoric conceit, a sickly-hued poetry, and eerie sound design to build metaphors for closeted homoeroticism and melancholic unfulfillment..”
by Aaron Hillis [Village Voice]

LAST WEEKEND :

“..the most striking moments in Last Weekend are not the expected ones..”
by Serena Donadoni [Village Voice]

AS ABOVE, SO BELOW :

“..it all makes for clumsy-fun escapism, not bad as end-of-summer chillers go, but small-time compared with other Legendary releases..”
by Peter Debruge [Variety]

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]
