2.5 of 4

“..while it shows the marks of some of those restrictions, and the occasional intrusions of a too-rigid screenwriter, it's an often funny, character-driven piece..”
by Stephen Whitty [Newark Star-Ledger]
“..Union Square feels like 80 minutes of Savoca dusting off the cobwebs, so it makes sense that she'd extend her characters the same generosity..”
by Scott Tobias [NPR]
“..superbly colorful performance by Mira Sorvino, the film grabs hold of the viewer from the jump and snowballs toward a deftly moving and concise third act..”
by Gary Goldstein [LA Times]
2 of 4

“..Sorvino brings a spark, but neither she nor Patti LuPone, in an amusing cameo, can overcome the clockwork-like plod to the end..”
by Sara Stewart [New York Post]
2.5 of 4

“..it doesn't pretend to be anything more than it is - a slice-o'-life domestic drama/dark comedy of manners savvy about its limits and sufficiently disciplined to keep its convolutions to a credible, impactful minimum..”
by James Adams [Globe and Mail]
“..has the busy, hemmed-in talkiness of a theater piece, with too much forced to happen in too short a time. But it also has a lively, nervous energy and an expansive sympathy for the mismatched women at its heart..”
by A.O. Scott [NY Times]

LATEST REVIEWS

MAS NEGRO QUE LA NOCHE :

“..this might just be the silliest Mexican movie of the year, 3D or not..”
by Eric Ortiz Garcia [TwitchFilm]

THE EQUALIZER :

“..a stone-dumb movie, unwilling to allow Washington even a hint of uniqueness (apart from the usual silverware straightening and public book reading, shorthand cliches for "smart")..”
by Joshua Rothkopf [Time Out New York]

THE BOXTROLLS :

“..delectable treat that balances themes of identity and class warfare with Monty Python-style political skewering, quirky humor and dairy jokes..”
by Brian Truitt [USA Today]

SAINT LAURENT :

“..pure haute couture - considerably more spectacular, but also less practical, with its baroque ornamentation and slip-sliding chronology..”
by Guy Lodge [Variety]

MEN, WOMEN & CHILDREN :

“..painfully well-meaning but largely unpersuasive bid for cross-generational understanding feels at once of-the-moment and too obvious by half..”
by Justin Chang [Variety]

REVENGE OF THE GREEN DRAGONS :

“..an ambitious English language attempt to give Chinese American gangs their day is disappointingly uninvolving..”
by Deborah Young [Hollywood Reporter]

FISHING WITHOUT NETS :

“..offers instead is a slick sense of style and a surfeit of credible detail..”
by Ignatiy Vishnevetsky [A.V. Club]

THE TWO FACES OF JANUARY :

“..The Two Faces Of January may not be trying anything bold, original, or especially complicated, but what it does, it does well..”
by Ignatiy Vishnevetsky [A.V. Club]

FIELD OF LOST SHOES :

“..the film stands as a pinnacle of revisionist bullshit..”
by Nick Schager [Village Voice]

GOOD PEOPLE :

“..predictable, pat conclusion and betrays its generally solid performances and respectable artistic pedigree..”
by Cary Darling [Fort Worth Star-Telegram]
