“..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

HORRIBLE BOSSES 2 :

“..good for a few laughs, but not much more..”
by Justin Lowe [Hollywood Reporter]

THE SEARCH :

“..the film as a whole is tepid and familiar enough that it's hard to even find much to salvage in the acting..”
by Oliver Lyttelton [The Playlist]

RISE OF THE LEGEND :

“..a slick, polished and entertaining reboot of a folk legend..”
by Elizabeth Kerr [Hollywood Reporter]

FOOD CHAINS :

“..Rawal takes a compassionate but dry approach that suggests he's focused on making a call to arms, not art. The best documentaries manage to be both..”
by Elizabeth Weitzman [NY Daily News]

SEASONS OF LOVE :

“.."Seasons of Love" is a tedious love story that doesn't have the drama nor excitement of even ten minutes on the F train..”
by Monique A. Williams [Shadow and Act]

A ROYAL CHRISTMAS :

“.."A Royal Christmas" may not be the brightest bulb on the tree, if only because the story is so underpowered by original ideas..”
by Nancy DeWolf Smith [Wall Street Journal]

HELLO LADIES: THE MOVIE :

“..as a romantic comedy that stands on its own, Hello Ladies: The Movie hits every objective. It's a structurally sound movie, which may sound like an insult but simply means that it's not just a stretched out episode of Hello Ladies..”
by LaToya Ferguson [A.V. Club]

LATE PHASES :

“..Late Phases fails to deliver either shocks or real drama..”
by Katie Rife [A.V. Club]

ALL RELATIVE :

“..not entirely successful attempt at doing something unexpected within the traditional romantic-comedy framework..”
by Michael Rechtshaffen [LA Times]

THE SLEEPWALKER :

“..a tentative feint toward genre territory can't conceal the slightness of this heightened drama..”
by Justin Lowe [Hollywood Reporter]
