“..good on you, polar bears, and kudos to the cinematic expertise that captures them, especially underwater..”
by David DeWitt [New York Times]

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..”

CRONIES :

“..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]

WITH THIS RING :

THE BRONZE :

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