REVIEWS RATE:  Critics  Nothing's perfect, but it's worth seeing.    Readers  5 of 5 [Rate It]

1.5 of 4

“..true, the stars are very good at what they do, but so what?..”
by Kyle Smith [New York Post]
4 of 5

“..tough to watch: a seismic jolt of violence both physical and psychological, with bruises both visible and deeply burrowed..”
by Alexis Loinaz [Chicago Tribune]
“..their performances are so raw, so visceral, you feel the blows, wince at the bruises, cry at their pain..”
by Betsy Sharkey [Los Angeles Times]
Review rate : B

“..the performances carry the film and occasionally lift it beyond its kitchen-sink lower-depths doldrums..”
by Peter Rainer [Christian Science Monitor]
“..the film's shots are calm and composed, almost meditative; there are no canted camera angles or jangling cuts, and much of the violence occurs off-screen..”
“..the film doesn't fetishize the violence, often keeping the worst of it offscreen..”
by David Rooney [Hollywood Reporter]
“..the characters are trapped, suffocated, pushed through a story that gives them very little room or time to figure themselves out, and that finally turns their feelings into the wan stuff of fable..”
by A.O. Scott [New York Times]
3 of 5

“..isn't easy viewing, and surely isn’t pretty, but his actors are remarkable..”
by Joe Neumaier [New York Daily News]
3 of 4

“..brutal, indeed..”
by Steven Rea [Philadelphia Inquirer]
“..British miserabilism at its most numbingly brutal and blunt..”
by Melissa Anderson [Village Voice]
Review rate : B+

“..a warning flag for queasy viewers that things won't be pretty here, but those who stay just a bit longer come to see his immediate regret over the matter..”
by William Goss [Film.com]

LATEST REVIEWS

SELMA :

“..one of the most powerful films of the year..”
by Chris Nashawaty [Entertainment Weekly]

AMERICAN SNIPER :

“..a solidly-staged but unexceptional picture, filled with overly familiar dramatic situations and a surprisingly blindered view of the world around its central character..”
by Drew McWeeny [HitFix]

ASK ME ANYTHING :

“..Ask Me Anything is a head above the glut of similarly themed and routinely rashly..”
by Nicholas Bell [Ioncinema]

BIG EYES :

“..despite its sharp feminist sting, Big Eyes never loses its light touch..”
by Chris Nashawaty [Entertainment Weekly]

PK :

“..PK movie is all that you anticipated, a paisa-vasool entertaining movie that will enthrall you for sure..”
by Priyanka Prasad [Filmibeat]

INTO THE WOODS :

“..will entertain youth audiences yet contains enough sly humor and narrative complexity to keep adults engaged..”
by David Rooney [Hollywood Reporter]

NIGHT AT THE MUSEUM: SECRET OF THE TOMB :

“..there's a serenity to museum visits, especially if it's a place you know and love. "Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb," amazingly, recaptures that feeling in big-studio franchise form..”
by Joe Neumaier [NY Daily News]

ELF: BUDDY'S MUSICAL CHRISTMAS :

“.."Elf" offers some slight, warmed over charms, but viewers would be better off catching one of the umpteen TV showings of the original "Elf" movie..”
by Rob Owen [Pittsburgh Post-Gazette]

THE INTERVIEW :

“..wild and wildly uneven..”
by Todd McCarthy [Hollywood Reporter]

TWO DAYS, ONE NIGHT :

“..it's a rare film of unforced simplicity that will stick with you for a long time. And it's honest right to its perfectly judged ending..”
by Kim Newman [Empire Online]
