“..this movie is the work of an artist who's boiling his craft and his message down to essentials, and who has reached the point of not much caring what other people think..”
by Andrew O'Hehir [Salon.com]
“..this is ravishing, distrib-worthy work from a filmmaker who hasn't lost his capacity to move and surprise..”
by Justin Chang [Variety]
4 of 5

“..there is no new ground, really, the distinction is in the way Malick covers it with glorious imagery, symphonies of sound, a cacophony of moods..”
by Betsy Sharkey [Los Angeles Times]
1.5 of 4

“..it's an apt metaphor for a film that slogs around without purpose, mired by its own fascination with itself..”
by Claudia Puig [USA Today]
Review rate : A-

“..it's a certainty that the film will prove divisive as its predecessor, but we found the director's latest to be a beautiful, hearfelt and raw piece of work..”
by Oliver Lyttelton [The Playlist]
“..is an entrancing film that nobody but Malick could have made..”
by Geoffrey Macnab [The Independent]
4 of 5

“..at its best, Malick's cinematic rhapsody is glorious; during his uncertain moments, he appears to be repeating himself. But what delight there is in this film..”
by Peter Bradshaw [The Guardian]
“..an impressionistic mish-mash from Terrence Malick..”
by Todd McCarthy [Hollywood Reporter]
“..after almost two hours of wistful, message-larded prettiness, Malick's latest visual symphonic poem has us squirming in our seats..”

LATEST REVIEWS

JAMES WHITE :

“..thanks to a strong visual eye and a terrific cast, this anguished, but intimate coming of age tale tends to (mostly) recompense for some of the darker and more despondent elements that will test some resolves..”
by Rodrigo Perez [The Playlist]

THE BRONZE :

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

A LITTLE GAME :

“..a serviceable family film that is hardly a worthy rival for "Searching for Bobby Fischer"..”
by Ben Kenigsberg [NY Times]

MORTDECAI :

“..though the books are brilliant, Depp's attempt to make his own Terry-Thomas movie feels tired and more than a little tortured..”
by Ali Plumb [Empire Online]

THE BOY NEXT DOOR :

“..it's not much fun at all, but at least it's over..”
by Moira MacDonald [Seattle Times]

STRANGE MAGIC :

“..the new animated musical fairy tale from the mind and the mixtape of George Lucas, is indeed strange. What's missing is the magic..”
by Betsy Sharkey [LA Times]

CAKE :

“..Patrick Tobin's infuriatingly coy script... turning the film into a morbid guessing game..”
by Joshua Rothkopf [Time Out New York]

MOMMY :

“..the same elements that have endeared or alienated viewers of Dolan's previous films are all here in Mommy..”
by Liam Lacey [Globe and Mail]

BLACK SEA :

“..Scoot McNairy is a terrifically spineless, whining mouthpiece for the adventurer who financed the journey, and Ben Mendelsohn is a terrifying underwater psycho. The whole thing adds up to a watery grave of claustrophobia-but that can be pretty terrifying..”
by Rex Reed [New York Observer]

SONG ONE :

“..Song One has its heart in the right place (on its sleeve)-it's just in desperate need of a few strong hooks..”
by David Ehrlich [Time Out New York]
