OUR BRAND IS CRISIS

“I am 1,000,000% certain that OUR BRAND IS CRISIS would have been better off just being a straight up drama instead of having anything to do with comedy.” – Jaskee Hickman, Cinematic Essential

“From its clunky title to its clumsy ending, there is just something wrong with director David Gordon Green’s new movie, OUR BRAND IS CRISIS. Actually, there are a lot of things wrong.” – John Black, Boston Event Guide

“…fictionalized to the point of near-total fabrication, and the tone veers from farcical to bitter to a late-breaking, and unconvincing, attempt at uplift.” – Kilian Melloy, Edge Boston

 

mgid-uma-image-mtvBURNT

“ADAM JONES was a stupid title, but BURNT isn’t much better for a film that’s only half-baked at best.” – Greg Vellante, Sound and Picture

“Overall, BURNT is fine at its best and nothing more.” – Jaskee Hickman, Cinematic Essential

“Sure, you loved RATATOUILLE – but wouldn’t you love it more with an abusive, too-cool-for-school douchebag whose talent justifies his every flaw!?” – Bob Chipman, MovieBob

 

HHHTHE ASSASSIN

“The film eschews the overtly fantastical for good reason: Hou’s refined, intentional style provides all the necessary enchantment to leave us enraptured.” – Andy Crump, Birth.Movies.Death.

 

 

A-Small-good-thing1-1024x683A SMALL GOOD THING

“The filmmaker skips back and forth among these stories telling us a little more each time, but it’s tricky to keep track of who’s who.” – Joyce Kulhawik, Joyce’s Choices
