“..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

MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE ROGUE NATION :

“..Rogue Nation may not be the best, the tightest, or even the most logically coherent M:I flick, but there should be more movies like it: relentlessly thrilling, smart entertainments for folks..”
by Chris Nashawaty [Entertainment Weekly]

VACATION :

“..everyone deserves a vacation. And everyone deserves a better comedy than "Vacation"..”
by Joe Neumaier [NY Daily News]

PAPER TOWNS :

“..the adaptation of Paper Towns is a failure. But even as it fails to either develop or subvert its characterization of Margo, it succeeds in complicating all of its ancillary characters..”
by Ignatiy Vishnevetsky [A.V. Club]

SOUTHPAW :

“..a predictable flurry of melodramatic jabs..”
by Chris Nashawaty [Entertainment Weekly]

THE VATICAN TAPES :

“..The Vatican Tapes is comparatively inert, even though it features a lot of the askew camera angles and jump-cuts that fans of the Crank series expect..”
by Noel Murray [A.V. Club]

PIXELS :

“..every joke is forced, every special effect is un-special..”
by Joe Neumaier [NY Daily News]

UNEXPECTED :

“..for a movie about surprises, though, there really aren't many... this academic study tends to feel like it's by the book..”
by Jordan Hoffman [NY Daily News]

SAMBA :

“..if it weren't for Sy's charm and cinematographer Stephane Fontaine's superb eye (the scenes set at the immigration detainee camp are especially evocative from a visual standpoint), Samba would be a total wash..”
by Keith Uhlich [A.V. Club]

AMERICAN HEIST :

“..alas, this doesn't excuse the film's childish simplicity, be it a line of cheesy dialogue, an overused camera trick, or the primitive romance..”
by Nikola Grozdanovic [The Playlist]

10 CENT PISTOL :

“..Martin's script holds some hard-boiled appeal, but his direction (some nice technical flourishes aside) doesn't back it up..”
by John DeFore [Hollywood Reporter]
