shailene-allegiantTHE DIVERGENT SERIES: ALLEGIANT

“This is two whole hours of boring retread bereft of any sort of personality, and the movie knows that.” – Sam Cohen, Under the Gun Review

 

 

dorisHELLO, MY NAME IS DORIS

“The comedy that’s blended into a story about coping with loss, searching for love and reaching for seemingly unattainable goals makes HELLO, MY NAME IS DORIS worth the trip to theaters.” – Jaskee Hickman, Cinematic Essential

“[Michael Showalter] is a kind soul who feels more at ease when he’s treating the characters in his movies like actual human beings instead of punchline pincushions.” – Andy Crump, A Constant Visual Feast

“Change is in the offing– and that is the stuff of the film.” – Joyce Kulhawik, Joyce’s Choices

mirrensky-xlargeEYE IN THE SKY

“Though it is emotionally manipulative and comes close to over-dramatic, it never becomes flamboyant. It raises far more questions than it answers.” – Deirdre Crimmons, Cinematic Essential

“In an aesthetic sense, this is a far more manic film than any of Reichardt’s later works (WENDY AND LUCY, MEEK’S CUTOFF, NIGHT MOVES), but it’s no less instructive about her artistic voice.” – Jake Mulligan, Dig Boston

“There’s a wonderful specificity to the film, and Reichardt is already displaying her knack for keeping characters small in the context of a larger perspective.” – Sean Burns, The Artery

 

remember-thumbREMEMBER

“…if you happen to nod off about an hour and ten minutes into Remember, it becomes a much better movie than if you decide to see it through to the end.” – Andy Crump, Paste Magazine
