3.5 of 4

“..this lack of "wow" factor places added pressure on its lead star to hold our attention, and Tyson absolutely does..”
by Chuck Barney [San Jose Mercury News]
“..that's not to say this is a particularly great movie (or that the earlier version was, either). Yet as with almost everything else in her storied career, Tyson has finished this "Trip" with her dignity intact..”
by Brian Lowry [Variety]
Review rate : B

“..it's focused on Mrs. Watts' personal journey home, her escape from the small bubble she's come to know. As it is, it's wonderful to watch Tyson make that escape..”
by Molly Eichel [A.V. Club]
4 of 5

“..all the actors nail their parts, but Tyson runs the show..”
by David Hinckley [NY Daily News]

MALL :

BIG DRIVER :

“..if you do enjoy the once in a while thriller, and like to see a story that pushes you to think, then Big Driver is for you..”

SUMMER OF BLOOD :

“..Summer of Blood tries very hard to be cool, but instead comes off as strained and aloof, with a number of satiric targets it could have aimed for but just bypasses altogether..”
by Drew Taylor [The Playlist]

THE CULTURE HIGH :

“..an amateurish hand is in the term-paper-like voice-over narration and the inclusion of underqualified talking heads..”
by Martin Tsai [LA Times]

RUDDERLESS :

“.."Rudderless" is a competent, well-acted melodrama, yet in scope and ambition it has the modest and serviceable scale of the small, not silver, screen..”
by Michael O'Sullivan [Washington Post]

YOUNG ONES :

“..unfortunately this film is equally dusty, with a mishmash of ideas and self-conscious execution..”
by Joe Neumaier [NY Daily News]

BIRDMAN :

“..Keaton's terrific, off-kilter performance is just one of several in this dizzying, high-energy movie. A must-see..”
by Rafer Guzman [Newsday]

HOUSEBOUND :

“..creepy, silly, inventive, darkly funny and, at one point, mind-blowingly bloody..”
by Gary Goldstein [LA Times]
