BOFCA REVIEW ROUND-UP: 09/16/2016

“The weight of the film, though, is on Gordon-Levitt and Woodley and these are easily two of the best performances of the year.” – Daniel M. Kimmel, North Shore Movies

“Unlike last year’s Academy Award-winner SPOTLIGHT, where the visual and narrative techniques never make you question the truth of the subject matter. SNOWDEN’s storytelling and visual style continually make it suspect.” – Michael Cox, Edge Boston

“I’m afraid it’s already safe to say that, as a film, SNOWDEN isn’t going make the contribution to the national conversation its director intended. You’ve got to admire Oliver for taking a swing, though.” – Sean Burns, Spliced Personality

“Stone is dealing in broad strokes with a complex story that might have benefited from a more refined touch; his heavy hand is felt everywhere– and I left feeling, well, handled.” – Joyce Kulhawik, Joyce’s Choices

 

 

Blair-Witch-Image303BLAIR WITCH

“Suspension of disbelief was key in enjoying the original, but now everyone knows the bag of tricks.” – Sam Cohen, Substream Magazine

“Although there isn’t much to like, simply seeing BLAIR WITCH as a huge disappointment would be a bit disingenuous from my viewpoint.” – Jaskee Hickman, Cinematic Essential

 

 

BridgetJonesBaby_Trailer2BRIDGET JONES’ BABY

“The result is less a date night movie than one better suited for “girl’s night out.” – Daniel M. Kimmel, North Shore Movies
