Review rate : A-

“..the perfectly harmonized cast in this instantly disarming funny-deep drama, no one is ever an indie punchline..”
by Lisa Schwarzbaum [Entertainment Weekly]
“..stick to the script, and a slightly richer visual palette could have broadened this worthy tale's appeal..”
by John DeFore [Hollywood Reporter]
2.5 of 4

“..so beautifully acted by its three principals that it's a shame the film eventually threatens to fall apart under the weight of an excess of plot twists and hedged bets..”
by Kenji Fujishima [Slant Magazine]
“..boasts solid appeal for indie fans and mainstream moviegoers interested in trying a safe, tasty item from the smarthouse menu..”
by Justin Chang [Variety]

LATEST REVIEWS

THE IMITATION GAME :

“..its various riffs on codes, whether moral, sexual, societal or German, are plain to see rather than enigmatic or enlightening. Luckily it's all anchored in a storming performance from Cumberbatch..”
by Dave Calhoun [Time Out London]

PENGUINS OF MADAGASCAR :

“..a frantic, peppy, in-your-face slice of irreverent toon action..”
by Geoff Berkshire [Variety]

HORRIBLE BOSSES 2 :

“..good for a few laughs, but not much more..”
by Justin Lowe [Hollywood Reporter]

THE SEARCH :

“..the film as a whole is tepid and familiar enough that it's hard to even find much to salvage in the acting..”
by Oliver Lyttelton [The Playlist]

RISE OF THE LEGEND :

“..a slick, polished and entertaining reboot of a folk legend..”
by Elizabeth Kerr [Hollywood Reporter]

FOOD CHAINS :

“..Rawal takes a compassionate but dry approach that suggests he's focused on making a call to arms, not art. The best documentaries manage to be both..”
by Elizabeth Weitzman [NY Daily News]

SEASONS OF LOVE :

“.."Seasons of Love" is a tedious love story that doesn't have the drama nor excitement of even ten minutes on the F train..”
by Monique A. Williams [Shadow and Act]

A ROYAL CHRISTMAS :

“.."A Royal Christmas" may not be the brightest bulb on the tree, if only because the story is so underpowered by original ideas..”
by Nancy DeWolf Smith [Wall Street Journal]

HELLO LADIES: THE MOVIE :

“..as a romantic comedy that stands on its own, Hello Ladies: The Movie hits every objective. It's a structurally sound movie, which may sound like an insult but simply means that it's not just a stretched out episode of Hello Ladies..”
by LaToya Ferguson [A.V. Club]

LATE PHASES :

“..Late Phases fails to deliver either shocks or real drama..”
by Katie Rife [A.V. Club]
