4 of 5

“..with its fragmentation and mysteries, "Upstream Color" offers itself up as a puzzle as well as a philosophical toy that you can spin and spin until the cafe closes and kicks you into the night..”
by Manohla Dargis [New York Times]
2.5 of 4

“..this enigma-delivery system from a sharp mind has enthralling moments but becomes a bit enervating in its self-seriousness..”
by Farran Smith Nehme [New York Post]
“..there's a thin line between what's truly mysterious and what's totally bogus..”
by Stephanie Zacharek [Village Voice]
3 of 5

“..there is an undeniable pull to the stream-of-consciousness storytelling filmmaker Shane Carruth ("Primer") uses in "Upstream Color."..”
by Joe Neumaier [New York Daily News]
3 of 5

“..no one is going to explain any of this for you-and the slightly snobby implication of Upstream Color is that explanations are for suckers..”
by Joshua Rothkopf [Time Out New York]
3.5 of 4

“..it's the long-awaited follow-up to the equally sophisticated 2004 time travel drama "Primer" by American indie wunderkind Shane Carruth, and it's every bit as good..”
by Simon Abrams [Chicago Sun-Times]
2 of 4

“..but for many audiences, this is just a slightly odd movie that soon becomes incomprehensible, leaving them with nothing but a headache. And for some critics, I suspect, another chance to add a trendy something to the emperor's new clothes closet..”
by Stephen Whitty [Newark Star-Ledger]
3 of 5

“.."Upstream Color," an erbp release, is not rated but contains some violence and some bloody and disturbing images..”
by Christy Lemire [Associated Press]

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]

THE GAMBLER :

“..a slick remake of the gritty original is marked by sharp performances..”
by Todd McCarthy [Hollywood Reporter]

MR. TURNER :

“..an ecstatically beautiful and exquisitely detailed portrait of the artist as a cantankerous middle-aged man..”
by Scott Foundas [Variety]

SONG OF THE SEA :

“..a gorgeously rendered animated feature from Ireland..”
by Boyd van Hoeij [Hollywood Reporter]

ANNIE :

“..more of a facelift than an update, the pic dusts off some old songs, adds a few desultory stabs at new ones, and stuffs the frame with shiny upscale gadgets that scream "modern"..”
by Ronnie Scheib [Variety]

THE SANTA CON :

“..this movie was mostly about crime and lies and betrayal and sticking your nose into other people's business..”
by Jill O'Rourke [Crushable]
