by Claudia Puig [USA Today]

THE LAST OF ROBIN HOOD :

“..the puzzle at the centre of the tale just seems so outlandish and preposterous, it's difficult to take the film seriously..”
by Linda Barnard [Toronto Star]

LIFE OF CRIME :

THE DAMNED :

“..is The Damned scary? Yes, a bit..”

by Serena Donadoni [Village Voice]
