LIVE BY NIGHT

“…doesn’t so much break new ground in the gangster film as deepen explorations into areas opened by others.” – Daniel M. Kimmel, North Shore Movies

“LIVE BY NIGHT is not an amazing movie, but as a testosterone-driven piece of genre narrative this film has many moments of humor, style and character acting bravado that make it a pleasure to watch, and satisfactorily drive the viewer to the next plot point.” – Michael Cox, Edge Boston

“The plot is pretty dumb, the monster disconnected, and the victims forgettable. All of these missteps in the same film add up to either two experiences: you either dig how bad it is and decide to laugh at the film, or you are frustrated that you wasted time and money on such an uninspired, disposable flick.” – Deirdre Crimmins, Film Thrills

“…more about commerce than art, but for parents wanting to find something to do with their kids on a wintry afternoon, it will do the trick.” – Daniel M. Kimmel, North Shore Movies

“The deeply moving conclusion that Almodóvar builds to might strike some as a bit too open-ended, but he finishes as he began, with two lovers in an enclosed compartment, traveling forward on yet another journey toward destiny.” – Brett Michel, The Improper Bostonian

“It’s always a rapturous pleasure to watch a master filmmaker work their magic and exercise their craft, and JULIETA, the latest film from the great Pedro Almodóvar, is no exception.” – Andy Crump, The Playlist
