“..with greater faith in its material, the movie could have dispensed with its time jumps and saved the reveals for when they matter most..”
by Sam Adams [Time Out New York]
2 of 5

“..though much of the film is overcooked and overwrought, it's well-played, and writer-director Kieran Darcy-Smith keeps us guessing, and watching..”
by Joe Neumaier [New York Daily News]
“..the emotional authenticity of "Wish You Were Here" is rooted in its utter lack of interest in making anyone too sympathetic..”
by John Anderson [Variety]
2.5 of 5

“..because enough clues have been dropped, even that fact comes as no big surprise..”
by Stephen Holden [New York Times]

A HAUNTED HOUSE 2 :

“..the script is lazy, recycling countless genre cliches rather than inventing novel twists..”
by Colin Covert [Minneapolis Star Tribune]

MAKE YOUR MOVE :

“.."Make Your Move" is an underwritten mess..”
by Inkoo Kang [LA Times]

KID CANNABIS :

“..this wild story sells itself, no narration needed..”
by Neil Genzlinger [New York Times]

BEARS :

“..another typically engaging, vividly shot entry in the successful Disney wildlife series..”
by Michael Rechtshaffen [Hollywood Reporter]

A PROMISE :

“..awkward, passionless drama conveys neither the sensuality nor the drawn-out sense of longing required..”
by Justin Chang [Variety]

FADING GIGOLO :

“..this second film is the keeper: the kind of keenly observed cultural clash that still finds room for dancing, a sultry fish-deboning (you just have to see it) and awakening..”
by Joshua Rothkopf [Time Out New York]

TIME IS ILLMATIC :

“..the documentary offers a number of reasons to appreciate its ongoing legacy, with sufficient production values to hold the tribute together..”
by Eric Kohn [indieWIRE]

HEAVEN IS FOR REAL :

“..a supposedly true story that uses faulty logic to reduce the complexity of faith to a fairy-tale. By rights, it should displease atheists and believers alike..”
by Rafer Guzman [Newsday]

ANTBOY :

“.."Antboy" is peppered with fun, cleverly shot and edited action bits as well as apropos comic-book style visuals..”
by Gary Goldstein [LA Times]

13 SINS :

“..a creepy little diversion that ultimately unravels long before its hero's fragile psyche does..”
by Justin Chang [Variety]
