“..This sappy, time-traveling love story seems instead as if it sprang from the pages of a Harlequin romance..”
by Claudia Puig [USA Today]
“..the sparks between Farrell and Brown Findlay are undeniable, but "Winter's Tale" gives us too little of their love story, opting instead to lose itself in magical mumbo-jumbo while at the same time trying to keep one foot in the real, recognizable world..”
by Alonso Duralde [The Wrap]
0.5 of 4

“..sure, it's a movie aimed at a Valentine's Day audience, but this is like breaking your tooth while crunching down hard on a cinnamon heart..”
by Peter Howell [Toronto Star]
“..some of Winter's Tale is just flat-out pretty enough to work..”
by Stephanie Zacharek [Village Voice]
2 of 5

“..it's a heavy-handed piece of quirky melodrama told with broad strokes and plenty of artificiality. There's just enough sensuality to pique the interest of said target audience, but nothing remotely moving for anyone that hasn't yet shed their virginity..”
by Cole Smithey [ColeSmithey.com]
“..is a movie rife with mysterious and unexplainable phenomena - elusive supernatural occurrences that its characters insist on describing as miracles..”
by Justin Chang [Variety]
“..an ineffectual account of an eternal love..”
by Todd McCarthy [Hollywood Reporter]

“..it is supremely intelligent and moving and Rampling and Courtenay are superb..”
by Peter Bradshaw [The Guardian]

A WALK IN THE WOODS :

“..A Walk in the Woods is a jolly good time, sparking dozens of chuckles and a few strong laughs. Nothing special cinematically, it still provides a welcome showcase for wonderful star..”

“..are so heavy on broad pulpit pounding that it's challenging to get swept along by the story's message..”
by Tom Russo [Boston Globe]

ZIPPER :

“..on all counts, "Zipper" comes up short..”
by Katharine Pushkar [NY Daily News]

7 CHINESE BROTHERS :

“..feels like an homage to the early work of Wes Anderson with its plinky soundtrack, solipsistic banter and emphasis on uniforms..”
by Sara Stewart [New York Post]

TURBO KID :

by Soren Andersen [Seattle Times]

WHEN ANIMALS DREAM :

“..rich with tone but otherwise lacking bite..”
by Jordan Hoffman [NY Daily News]

POD :

“..a highly effective tale of terror that does a nice job of setting an unsettling tone from the onset and very rarely lets up until the film's conclusion..”
by Heather Wixson [Dailydead]

#LUCKY NUMBER :

“..obviously "#Lucky Number" will not appeal to everyone but for those that do find it entertaining, they will not be disappointed..”
by James McDonald [Irish Film Critic]

Z FOR ZACHARIAH :

“..the dramatic tension considerably less, in a movie that feels stranded somewhere between serious artistic ambition and the dystopian franchise-building of "The Hunger Games," "Divergent," et al..”
